2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


We have owned this Patriot since February 2008. We are glad that we chose and were able to get the manual transmission with the 2.4L engine. You need to plan to accelerate and be in the right gear when passing or other. Yes, it would be nice to have more power (or maybe a small turbo), but it has been a great vehicle. For the price and options we have, it has delivered all we expected and more. The only "glitch" has been on rare occasions where we have experienced some type of "unbalance" when driving and using the 4 x 4. It is not a wheel or tire issue, possibly something with the transfer case. We plan to replace it with an identical model, if we can find one on a dealer lot someday

Best Features

Manual transmission gives fun to drive experience and both clutch and trans have been foolproof.

Worst Features

A little more knee room for the driver's right knee to the center stack would be appreciated.
