Wasn't looking to buy a new car when I went to the dealer but he asked me if I had ever driven a Jeep before and of course then the answer was no! I've had my Patriot about 18 months now and the only thing it needs is gas and new oil every 3000 miles. Up to 17000 miles right now and not even a minor hiccup!! I really don't understand the bad reviews on this car at all! All of the experts seem to not like this car at all but it has done everything I've asked it to and when u fold down the rear seats it can carry a lot more than u think. On top of all that the gas mileage is great and its a very comfortable highway cruiser too! I would recommend the Patriot to anyone who needs a affordable car.

I originally planned on buying a used 2008 jeep. I loved it. I got annoyed at a particular dealership and left...but I really wanted the jeep. So I went to another dealership and decided to lease the 2014 Jeep Patriot Latitude...so glad that I did. It handles very well and I get great mileage out of it. I plan on buying this jeep when the lease is up.

Loving It

by from Aberdeen, Maryland on April 9, 2014

Just purchased a 2014 Patriot Latitude. I am not mechanically inclined, but I know what I like, and this SUV rides smooth and drives like a dream. So very pleased with my purchase.

Very Happy Driver

I am very impress with the Jeep Patriot, I have driven Fords since my high school years, 80"s, and don't regret buying a Jeep Patriot. I don't know why the expert reviews are so hard on this SUV, We own a Suzuki Grand vitara, a Ford Escape and the Patriot is a better looking SUV. I am glad I went with the people reviews and not with the expert reviews. Smooth ride, enough power for a 4 cylinder (2.4), the interior is roomy and no blind spots. I would highly recommend the Jeep Patriot.

Best 4x4 for the Money

I have owned my 2014 Patriot Latitude with the 2.4 liter engine and six speed automatic transmission for a year now. I love it more and more every day. It has been reliable and offers confident handling in the Minnesota Winter. I have owned two Grand Cherokees and I like the new model also. The Patriot is smaller and has less power than my previous 5.7 liter HEMI but it is “zippy” with the new 6 speed. The first weekend I had the vehicle my family and I went on a 250 mile road trip, 500 miles round trip. My three children (8,5 and 4) fit in the back seat fine even with car seats in place. My wife was in the passenger seat and I was driving. My Patriot also had the family’s weekend worth of luggage/baggage in the cargo space, it was full. Driving on the highway at 65 mph I was able to get 30+ mpg. I have gladly traded the un-needed horsepower for double the fuel economy. Oh yeah, and the Patriot is $10,000-$25,000 less.

most reliable auto ever

I've owned many vehicles over my 43 yrs of driving. The Patriot is the most well built of all. Nice ground clearance and love metal sheet of protection below the body. The best, though- it is a 2011 jeep with 96,000 miles, and it has only needed maintenance work-tires, brakes, oil. Everything still works great in this vehicle. The brakes lasted 50,000 miles, too. I think it helps the brakes last longer if you use the gear stick-which I do. I live on a dirt road in the mountains-Poconos. Patriot handles very well! Fits my four friends comfortably, as well. Highly recommend the Jeep Patriot.

We just joined the Jeep family and we are hooked. Great styling and plenty of interior room for me at 6'1. My wife's first new car and she looks great driving this around town. Much better experience than a mini van. It makes her feel "cool." The kids love it as well. The 4wd is great for snow driving in the winter.

2014 Jeep Patriot High Altitude FWD Got the vehicle with one previous owner, with 19,000 miles. This vehicle is replacing a four door Pontiac Bonneville (which was a fantastic ride - but it had seen it's best days) ... I recommend this to anyone who wants practicality, good looks and a bit of sophistication .. whether you take road trips with it or not. Let's get the worst part of the car out of the way: the CVT Transmission. This has been replaced on many Chrysler vehicles with a 6-speed auto, because people like to have their car SHIFT - cleanly and with no fuss, to the next gear. The CVT, in normal mode, doesn't really do that ... It has a 'gradual rubber-band' concept .. it slowly expands with acceleration, and contracts ... and does leave an unsatisfying feeling. It's like when you get above 15mph it's gripping the engine too tightly, and doesn't let the power unwind. ... But that's in REGULAR mode -- Chrysler had done a not great job of advertising the Auto-Stick feature, and how to use it. - Using the auto-stick, this 2.0 liter engine comes to life! It's good at merging onto the highway ... As you go to turn right, onto the entrance ramp, you put the shifter to the right and a gear will appear (like 5) .. then before you turn you push it to the left and back, quickly three times, and puts you down to 2nd gear ... and gives you all the power you need to get on the freeway! - popping it repeatedly to the right, as the revs signal, 'till you hit 6th gear ... Then you hold it to the right, for 'Drive', give it some gas and put the cruise where you want it. It's easy ... and actually fun! It does mimic a stick-shift ... You basically got a 6-speed built in to the shifter, but many people didn't know it. Even these professional car places, like __, or _&_ just drove it in auto mode, and clocked 0-60mph in freakin' 10.7 seconds or something. I assure you the High Altitude can get to 60 WAY quicker than that. Normal leisurely driving around town, doing errands, with the trans in normal mode you go just fine. The trans is a bit loud, and so is the whole powertrain, but the " professional " reviewers don't understand a lot of people don't care about that. -- I'm a musician and I listen to the stereo all the time. Which, this car has the upgraded stereo - with the sun and sound package (including awesome moonroof) .. Uconnect center, to hook up your smart phone and have hands-free communication ... and Sirius Satellite Radio! Bad-a__. It's got leather seats, 17inch tires and awesome mineral grey rims. As well as the beautiful gun-metal Maximum Steel exterior paint, the sheer amount of stuff in this car really surprised me. And though this a genuine compact SUV, on the highway heavy wind doesn't really bother it - The suspension takes curves with aplomb, and the Patriot never feels tippy. Brakes feel solid, and safe. Cruising between 70-75mph (Jeep has excellent Overdrive) I've gotten about 29mpg highway. The inside really is flat-out luxury - Really cold a/c, with 360-degree vent control ... cool lighted cup-holders ... and heated leather seats, for cold winter days. The 2.0 liter multi-valve motor isn't a torque monster, but if you rev it it will go, on the highway ... and (especially using QT 89 octane gas) will keep up with modern V6s, off the stoplight to 50mph, using the auto-stick. {once you've had a few weeks practice with it}. I don't understand people's reviews different places saying the Patriots with the 2.0 are slow ... They're not. You've got six gears, and 158 horsepower .. And they're ALL THERE. (unlike many import small SUVs) After a couple thousand miles the High Altitude is a great experience, for me and my wife (who travels all around the western part of our state, for her job) ... All in all a satisfying purchase :-)
