2009 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Worst car EVER.. I traded in my 2007 Sonata Limited V6 bought it brand new(which never gave me any type of problems @ 130,981miles besides oil/filter change and 4 new tires) for the 2009 Patriot needed a 4WD vehicle and it SUCKS. I got the Jeep a month ago and due to CVT trans problems I had to take it back to dealer and it been in the dealer since then only had for a week and gotta take it back this week cause now is the CVT trans plus shocks absorbers, axels, and struts....... I'm going to make the last 5 payments in August just to get read of it...... Worst Jeep EVER....... And BTW the Jeep only have 60,451 miles.....

Review

I love Jeep products and was excited to buy this car.
I've had it for 3 years but the little things wrong are getting annoying.

1. Leaky moonroof.
I've been to the dealer 5 times, but stopped going after the warranty ran out.
Water pours from the dome light after it rains.
They told me it is because I park under trees and the drain pipe is plugged.
I gave up and now just keep a towel handy.

2. Stalls when its cold.
I'll drive down the road and get to the stop sign.
I'll try to go and the engine is completely shut off.
It quietly shuts down.

3. Temperature display is stuck on 73 degrees.

4. Radio is completely dead when it gets really hot out.
(No display at all)


Best Features

I love how comfortable and roomy the car is. I've taken it camping and across country on a road trip. The car is fun to drive! I got the high end sound system and music sounds amazing! I do LOVE this car (except for the few bugs).


Worst Features

Fix the issues. I see the other reviews and I know that this is a design flaw or factory build issue. Can I expect a recall? Please?

2009 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I originally bought the vehicle because of the interior space. It had more backseat leg room than even the Commander. Like everything about the vehicle except the leaking sunroof. Had it to the dealer 8 times and they have not been able to provide a permanent fix. Dealers been fair but can't get anywhere with Chrysler


Best Features

Economy, comfort, excellent snow vehicle, excellent sound system.


Worst Features

With all the complaints I read the sunroof is a factory defect. Fix it!!! Make the front ends look like the 2012 Compass. Add a diesel with manual shift

Review

My 2009 Partoit has a sunroof and leaks all the time.
had it to the dealer 4 times prior to today and they said to stop parking by trees.
Very poor customer service and the quality of this factory installed sunroof is unacceptable.
Ours is a 2 wheel drive automatic model, but edmunds only thinks this model comes with a manual tranny.


Best Features

very nice fair weather vehicle. keep it out of the rain and out of the snow.


Worst Features

get one without the sunroof.

Review

Traded under Cash for Clunkers and got one of the few Sport models with the 22 package and the Trail Rated Freedom Drive II.
That's the upgraded CVT. This vehicle is MUCH better thought out than I expected.
I have dragged boulders for landscaping, taken it off road, towed a small cargo trailer, and commuted in all weather conditions.
I am in CO, and we have had some ferocious snow.
This thing is better in snow in some ways than my LR3.
It bombs up and down fire roads and climbs obstacles like a champ.
It gets about 24 MPG.
No rattles, leaks, thumps or whistles.
If you need a cheap small SUV with decent off road ability and MPG, but still is smooth enough to commute in, this is the de


Best Features

FD II off road capability, snow handling, cargo capacity.


Worst Features

Gas tank is too small. Really too small.
