GOOD GAS MIELAGE for SUV

by from Rowlett TX on August 30, 2017

Nice car, Good gas mileage, like the deep dashboard because it helps shield face from sun. Previously owned a Jeep Liberty, which was great also!

We own a 2012 jeep patriot jeep. Loved the vehicle, thought we had a great jeep. For the past year we have spent 6000.00 in repairs and its been in the garage for the last 2 1/2 months. They can't find out whats wrong with it. The jeep goes find and then you can't move, no power. Put the gas to the floor and nothing , just idles. We've had the transmission replaced. They thought it was the cadilac converter but its not that. Now they are trying something else. No codes telling what it is. Check engine light is on. This wasn't a gradual thing it just happened all of a sudden. No one seems to know what it is. I can honestly say I will never buy a jeep ever again. We are paying for something that is stuck in the garage.

A solid suv with good gas mpg

by from camp hill, pa on July 2, 2017

The patriot is a great option if you're looking for a solid suv that doesn't eat gas. That being said due to its 2.0 or 2.4 engine don't expect to do any serious towing with it.

Although not as capable as a Jeep Wrangler, this little Jeep is more capable than any other Small SUV out there. It is comfortable and versatle. The front passenger seat folds flat allowing you to carry long boards inside and is great for tall people when camping. Handles snow and ice very well. Peppy but definately not a sports car!

It's Bad Enough To Complain Online

I bought one of the base models about a year ago for my second car ever. I had the: -2x4 -2.0L -5 speed manual -Sport Model The ride quality is average, acceleration is okay, breaking is ehh. Everything about this car is right at average, but there's an atmosphere of what could have been in the car. You can definitely tell what Jeep was trying to do, but its just so lackluster. The interior is way to small for how big the outside it and on top of that it's not made with the best parts and pieces. It's just disheartening to see this almost caste system Jeep has set up. "Oh what's that you don't want to buy the limited 4x4 Jeep? You just want a commuter that looks nice? No, for shame!" And then you're cursed with bad build quality and few features. No really the features of this car: -A/C -Power Steering -A Radio -If you're lucky the cruise control will work (roughly 5% of the time) Everything else about this car is manual. Windows, locks, seats, lights. It's a relic of car technology. I had originally traded a big old Ford truck in for this specifically for reliability of having a car with fewer than 25k miles on it. So for the first year it was great-ish. It did what I needed and got me where I was going. Within the first two months of me owning it the throw-out bearing went out. I didn't think much of it because I thought it was just where I had learned how to drive a stick with this car. So I went ahead and rebuilt the clutch assembly because Jeep sells a kit to replace it all and I didn't want to pull the transmission off again any time soon if I needed To replace the pressure plate, or the flywheel. That lasted another 10 months, until I had to replace another throw-out bearing, This time doing the same as the last, replacing the entire clutch assembly. So I drove it to the garage my friend has to use his lift, and while its parked outside while I'm shooting the breeze with my friend, a puddle of transmission fluid pooled underneath it. In short, after a year and 25k miles (50k total) the transmission housing cracked (still don't know from what, the throw-out bearing shouldn't do that). It was under drive-train warranty, but not without a fight.

I bought this vehicle new-have had the sunroof replaced twice because it will not close-after the second repair the roof drain clogged and flooded out the interior during a rainstorm-most recently the Electronic Throttle control failed at only 50,00 miles and stranded me on the highway-the worst and most unreliable car I have ever owned

This is a wonderful new car, the 2.4L I4 is superb, I love the nice rally noise you get from the exhaust at high RPMs. However I can't say that much else is wonderful about it. I had a 2002 Liberty that was superb, it did everything I asked it too and it handled the snow incredibly well. Some problems I have with this though: - The flappy toggle for 4WD isn't as reassuring as the old lever on the Liberty - The arm rest is also in the way of readily accessing the 4WD switch. - Ground Clearance is rather poor, a little short for a Jeep - The A-Pillars are ridiculous, I never once thought I would have a blind spot in front of me. I have narrowly avoided two accidents in as many months simply because I can't see enough. - The inside feels very cramped, back seat has very little leg room - The throttle is extremely sensitive. The brakes, not so much - There is a LOT of road noise which, after checking the tire pressure and all the windows can only be attributed to insulation - The steering wheel is massive, it feels clumsy and is rather uncomfortable to hold for a long period of time. - The low beam headlight is still too high, I've have had people flash their lights because it's blinding them. - The lack of an actual spare tire is foolish, a space saver is a ridiculous idea for a company that likes to go off-road to take the kids to school. For some postives: - The Grill is classic Jeep, I absolutely love that -The headlights are like your own personal suns, I have never seen so far at night - The stereo is fabulous - The engine noise again is very nice - The traction control is very well designed, it could go without blinking as it draws my attention away from the road which I need to be focused on
