An Economic Choice

Good on gas and great space, however the car vibrates a bit much while idle. Overall good value for your money,

by from Denver on July 25, 2017

Ugly car inside and out, not very roomy, has no balls takes alot of gas and feels like it could flip at any moment even when you are doing 5mph around a turn.

Good value 4x4

I wanted a 4x4 and they can be expensive. I found the Jeep patriot affordable and like other features. The cargo area is large for grocery shopping or kids bikes. And the height of the car is easy to load items and get in and out of. I had a Subaru but it was too low to the ground. My elderly mother could not get in it. The patriot is at a good height for her. The back doors are small, fine for kids and not too bad for elderly folks. Note the compass doors in the back are much smaller. Elderly folks won't be able to get in a compass. The patriot isn't a gas hog, about average. Reliability, right now mine hesitates with exceleration when the ac is on. Something I have to get looked at. Still can't beat it. Great little 4x4

Everything is breaking on this 2014 jeep patriot. Diverside mirror broken, the middle console squeaks like it's gonna break, both front seats side panel broke off, I'm so disappointed with this vehicle, and they can't fix most of these issues without me paying out of pocket.

had it 7 months no problem go on long trip it breaks down 4 times twice on the way there and twice on the back temperature control light came on transmission shut down but yet the dealer said there was nothing wrong with the vehicle, but the time it got towed to there location the engine had cool down and was driveable . the way they could find out what is wrong with it is to drive till light came on and hopefully you make to a dealership to be check. i would not recommend this vehicle to anyone

Will be looking at a another vehicle BRAND soon. Only 60,000 miles and had transmission overheat. Jeep dealer said nothing wrong. I have had this happen a total of 5 times. It had its warranty service for the transmission in Feb this year. the first 2 last year in August then 3 times in the past 2 months Every time it has had the warning light, loss of power was when it was 80 degrees or higher and going over 3.5RPM. NO TOWING any trailer etc. Jeep is going to charge me $89 to see what is wrong with it. From the complaints I have read jeep is not taking any responsibility for it. The other complaints have been told to replace transmission put a transmission fan etc. I am hoping that JEEP will fix the problem so that I can get rid of the thing. BTW the transmission is a CJ transmission. CJ's were discontinued late 80's
