Tight fit for infant seats
By Justin on


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


I have driven this car for 18 months. I have had no problems to date. It handles very well in snow, rain, and muddy dirt roads. Fuel economy is around 24-25, but decreases significantly with anything on the roof. I just installed two infant seats and barely fit them in. I am 5'10" and had to pull the seat 1 click forward from my usual position to fit them in. If you have long legs and plan on adding a car seat, buy different car.

Best Features

Removable plastic deck in rear. 4WD. Low roof height for rack access. Fold flat seats

Worst Features

Padded console(elbow rest). Larger distance between front and rear seats to accommodate infant carriers. Plastic battery cover is a pain.
