Come on jeep recall all patriots

I've had this car for over 7 years the CVT transmissions should have been recalled on all cars it a piece every since I got to 40000 miles where the warranty went out the tranny has just got worse worse it started out a quiet sound now it's a roar. I often wonder how much longer it will last. I wonder if jeep will ever do right by there customers and recall all patriots not just a few. It is is a very rough riding car. Once the brakes would not stop I wound up hitting another car because I applied brakes but just didn't stop. Slid right in back of someone airbags never deployed but now a few years later the air bag light comes on all the time at 24000 I got surely ripped off. And CVT transmissions not a lot of ppl know how to work on them the mechanic said if I was u I would just drive it until it breaks cuz they r expensive and it's hard to find someone who knows about them


Terrible SUV, gutless and gas guzzling

Probably the worst vehicle I've ever owned. No wonder it was discontinued! This vehicle had no acceleration power. It was such a choppy ride that you could feel almost 95% of the time while you put you lr foot on the gas. The weight of the Jeep and the subpar CVT transmission =bad combo. Based on that alone I went back to a VW and will never drive another Jeep. The Patriot was terrible on gas!



I think I can throw up at the fact of ever having to get back in one of these cars. The drive train is the most unreliable thing in a car to date. It gave me problems from 90k miles and nobody could figure out what was causing it to shake. The brakes are terrible on this car, it is underpowered, and causes way too many problems. I'm glad to have been able to get out of this vehicle when I did, and I'll never go back to another one.


Perfect customer service!

Mike at Bronco Motors Original made the car buying process simple and easy. Being a first time buyer not having much of an idea, Mike did a great job making sure everything I needed to do was clear and precise. I appreciate everything done by him and the experience was quick and simple. The jeep runs so well, it has plenty of space to transport everything I need and is overall an awesome first car. Great experience overall. Thanks again Mike!


Very reliable, low maintenance and good on gas.

Very nice ride for the type of vehicle it is Nice and roomy on the inside. Leather seats are very easy to care for. Very low maintenance.


Comfortable and reliable

Just bought a used 2016 Patriot. Ours is the base model: manual transmission, manual doors and windows, etc. It's very roomy and comfortable, and the cruise and climate controls work great. It's a nice all around commuter and family car. Driving it takes me back to a simpler time. This is my first Jeep and I absolutely love it.


Great Car

After several other brands, the Jeep was by far the best value for my money. It is solidly built, quiet, and smooth. It's just the right size, has very comfortable seats and is loaded with technology! On my first 200+ mile trip, I averaged 25 mpg. If you're looking for a SUV in this segment, put this one on your short list to test drive.


very happy with my new 4x4 jeep

I owned another jeep compact suv but it was not 4x4. The patriot is much larger, and more reliable to go on all terrains and feel confident in driving off road or on beach sand. I am happy with my purchase. It looks brand new inside even though it is a 2016 model, it also has a little bit of style and all the upgrades one would want. It is a good reliable car and I hope to enjoy it for many years.


Very good car for the price.

The Jeep is nice for everyday driving. However, the shape I bought it in was unacceptable. The seller was not honest about the cosmetic condition.


Never had to make a repair after 87,000 miles

The car drives the same the day I bought it never had to make a repair and has 87,000 miles on it that's quality! This is my second Jeep Patriot My first one was a 2014.
