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


Review

14 months and 18,000 miles after purchase I have no regrets. The patriot is a versatile vehicle that is good! On gas, in foll weather, on the purchase price and oddly enough ( resale value ) because its a Jeep. This Jeep is fun to drive to the local store and comfortable on a 500 mile trip. Avg. 23 to 27 mpg. With the 2.4 engine and CVT trans. Before purchase I also drove, cr-v, rav4 and Forester. The patriot was the hardest to take back and when I did I bought it. No regrets.


Best Features

Cool traditional looks, car-like handling and ride, standard radio, 17" alloy wheels and tires, CVT, seats, buttons and nobs.


Worst Features

Larger storage compartments in doors. Book and map storage on rear of front seat.

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


Review

I have had my Patriot for a year now I love it. We have 26 inches of snow this past winter. My husband's Silverado got stuck and he used my jeep to get to work. He said he had no issues and the thing drove through the snow like nothing. I live in Pittsburgh so this thing is tested on pot holes and 12 inches of water on the ground. It has never given me a problem.


Best Features

I love the four wheel drive for anyone that lives in a snow belt its great to have. I rarely used it cause this thing does well in 2 wheel.


Worst Features

The only thing I would change is the stupid child belt in the middle of the back seat that you can not remove. It drives me nuts when I have three adults in the back seat and only two seat belts.

Review

Very dependable. Haven't had a single thing go wrong in two years. No wonder it came with a lifetime power-train warranty. I paid way less than the sticker price so it's a super value.


Best Features

CVT transmission.


Worst Features

Greater towing capacity.

Review

So I had a 2003 Honda Element which was extremely reliable. It never died stalled or stuttered during its 4 years of service. I made the move to the Jeep Patriot because they were giving them away and my Honda was not attractive anymore. The interior had been trashed by me and my 5 year old. I am a Realtor so I do a ton of driving. I needed a car that was reliable and better on gas than the Honda. I read nothing but positive reviews from owners of the 2009 Jeep Patriot. I have driven mine for 2000 miles and I love it! It is a great car. It gets amazing gas mileage. It is spacious on the inside. The storage is just okay but the interior looks ago. I love the exterior style for this car.


Best Features

Gas mileage, price, reliability and exterior looks.


Worst Features

The backseats are not very comfortable for adults.
