Bought as a cheap ride, but it's much better

Vehicle2009 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewTraded 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 FeaturesFD II off road capability, snow handling, cargo capacity.
Worst FeaturesGas tank is too small. Really too small.
