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


My Patriot is actually a FWD automatic, there just wasn't an option for it. I bought this car with 100,000 km on it and have had no problems in the two years since, and am now at 154,000 km two years later. Gas mileage is alright, if I drive 110 everywhere I get 500 km on a tank (when the gas light comes on). It's awesome for trips as it can hold four people and all their luggage easily, but the seats are a little hard. Despite all this, its been a good vehicle and I plan on keeping it till it dies.

Best Features

My favourite features are the high seat, great sound system, and lots of options for not much money. It's awesome in snow, for a front wheel drive.

Worst Features

The new Patriots apparently have an improved interior, which I would like to have. The hard, scratchable plastic all over the inside sort of sucks. Also, the paint is a little cheap. Mine is covered in chips..again, the new ones have plastic around the wheels to protect the body, which is a good idea.
