Biggest Regret

I bought my 2010 Jeep Patriot in the fall of 2016 after driving a 1999 Toyota Corolla and honestly, I wish I would of just kept the Corolla. I have had issue after issue with this car including the CVT transmission needing to be replaced less than a year of owning it, the struts going bad, at least 5 new tires, a very loud rattling noise in the front, replaced the battery about 2 years ago and has needed to be jumped about 3 or 4 times since AND I still have about $800 worth of repairs that are needed to be done but I'm getting a new car today. Cannot wait to get rid of this piece of junk. Save yourself the hassle and DO NOT BUY!


One of the Best!

This vehicle has been amazing for me. It does have a CVT Transmission (the only real issue with it) and CVT sucks. But it has been so reliable, I love it!


Good smaller SUV, but horrible transmissions

I loved my jeep and has gotten me a lot of places, but I am currently having to put its 4th new transmission in it. Besides the transmission, everything works great. I wished it had more room between the middle seats and front seats.


Costs more to repair than we owe on it!

This car seemed like a good deal when we first bought it, but over the last 3 years (, it's a 2010), we've paid more in repairs than what we owe on it! Replacing Brakes- pads, shoes, rotors-, tie rods, control arms, and tires are all common now- and we don't dare take it of road, as it's advertised as being able to do. Our mechanic finally told us why- the vehicle itself is too heavy for its suspension, steering, and brake system. It's a design flaw, correctable only with expensive, after-market parts that are more sturdy than OEM ones. But that just means the parts *may* last a bit longer- the original design flaws will still remain. And you can't haul or plow much of anything with it, either- you need high torque in low speeds, which this vehicle doesn't have. Apparently, that's more like the Cherokee or higher. I wish we would have known all this before we bought it.


Jeep should have done a recall

I bought my patriot at 89000 miles in 2016. I commute daily about 60 miles round trip so that plus occasionally going out of town has me at 159000 right now. I love my jeep but it has an awful transmission issue. The ABS and traction lights come on and stay on for long periods of time. If I drive at high speed for longer than 30 minutes it will overheat and become too sluggish to drive. I read that this is a huge issue in patriot, liberty, and compass jeeps through 2016 models. They should do a recall. I really like my jeep but I can't go long distance in it. I'm about to trade it in on a car I can't deal with it anymore.


Worst investment I have ever made

While I like the looks I have made many repairs to this Jeep. Over the last 2 years I have spent over 5000.00 and could no longer justify keeping it.


This jeep saved my life when a lady ran a red ligh

I replaced it with another 2016 Jeep Patriot. Miss my 2010 but enjoying the 2016 and peace of mind that I am safe. Thank you Jeep for making a vehicle that after rolling three times I could walk away from.


Great car for small family, or business.

Reliable and fun with ample storage, and decent fuel economy. It worked well in the snow, and was a pretty comfortable vehicle to drive overall.


loves to throw computer codes,rust

Like the size and gas mileage. Don't like the rust under carriage and computer codes expensive to fix. Should not have purchased it. Sub par to other vehicles in its class. Never own another Jeep product again.


Great truck!

The Latitude Jeep Patriot was a great vehicle and very reliable. I had the vehicle for 7 years and would recommend to anyone.
