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


Bought a 2008 Jeep Patriot in August 2008.
It was a daily rental return that just under 20,000 km on it.

Almost 5 years later and I've had next to no problems with this vehicle besides wear parts.
I got the extended warranty to 5 years / 100,000 km and the only warranty work that I needed was
the fuel evap cannister that was hanging off (I probably ran over something) and there was minor work needed to be back end (sway bars and such) that was causing crunching noises when I went over bumps.
Less than $600 warranty work in 5 years.

I replaced the front brakes at 60 K and the back brakes (drums and all) at 95 K.
4 new tires at 60 K and I'll 4 new ones at 110K

Best Features

The inside isn't the best but I'm not somebody who looks for a lot of options on a car. I got the North Edition so nothing fancy, but it suits my needs. Favourite option is the fold down front seat because I can get full 8 foot 2 X4 in the Riot and get the trunk closed.
