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


I wanted an economical SUV that was still comfortable for a 6'3" guy with hip and back problems. The "Clunker" program w/the Chrysler rebate made picking the Patriot a no-brainer. The published reviews made me think I was "settling" for this car; but, after three tanks full, I'm very happy with my choice. I drove all day with three passengers yesterday and the guys in the backseat were comfortable. I'm satisfied with the engine performance and the CV auto too. I attached a small fish-eye mirror to the corner of the passenger side mirror and that helps w/the blind spot. I'm not crazy about the poor angle of upward visibility for a tall driver with the seat up and back.

Best Features

I love the ability to upload music and the touchscreen controls with UConnect tunes. Comfortable seats; EVIC features (ave mpg, tire pressure, compass, air temp, etc) are nice. Although I'm not getting the MPGs others are touting, I'm very happy with the gas mileage. 110-volt outlet

Worst Features

Poor visibility with the short windows; limited space in the back; not much ground clearance (8 inches) for a SUV.
