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


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.

Best Features

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

Worst Features
