    Pleased With Jeep! — handling is great- accelerates quickly, can move into busy traffic without worries, brakes respond very well! no repairs needed other than routine maintenance! although I love the look, we chose a blue that really looks grey to me, I would prefer an offering of a bluer blue, not the bright garish blue that was offered. interior is almost perfect, but could be darker so dirt doesn't show as easily. it is an automatic and I would adjust how it shifts because it is too easy to shift into low instead of drive. for long term travel the seats could be a little more plush, but for short trips and around town it is great. gas mileage has been fantastic in these high expense times, usually 25-29 in town and past 30 on trips at times. I would definitely recommend the Jeep Patriot and have many times since we have owned it!

    Pros: cost, low maintenance, quality, warrenty

    Cons: warrenty - will we lose it with Chrysler's financial problems ahead?

    Great Little Suv For The Price — The accelleration is a little bit slower than you might think because of the CVT transmission, but I'm getting close to 31 mpg on the highway! Its solid, has enough room for my friends and all of our stuff, and wasn't that expensive either. I would suggest it to anyone.

    Pros: Great space, Awesome gas milage

    Cons: Slow accelleration

    My First And Not Last Auto — Fuel efficient on two wheel drive and its 4 wheel drive is good enough to drive around in winter. Acceleration is terrible. The only reason why I didn't rate performance terrible is because i beat my cousins accent by 1 1/2 meters. But it has enough power to drive around the city and runs smoothly on highway. Exterior and interior are not bad. Colours : Ext. Green/Int. Sand. The only fun factor is in winter when you see people shoveling for 30 minutes when i just put it on 4 wheel drive and drive off.

    Pros: fuel efficient and 4 wheel drive. So basicly practical all year.

    Cons: Difficult to overtake old lady drivers.

    I Love This Jeep! — I've hauled photo equipment, groceries, mirrors, tools, lawn equipment, luggage, just about anything you can think of in the Jeep. The seats in the back split, so if you have two passengers and want to haul something, you can without a problem. I currently have my grand-daughters car seat in the middle of the back seat. She's pretty secure and loves sitting up so high vs. in a normal car.

    Pros: Love the lift out spare tire cover. It's very tough and washes off easily.

    Cons: I wish it was a 6 cylinder, but the pickup speed isn't too slow once you get used to it.

    Affordable Fun In A Compact Package — It still stands up to the outdoors and yields what you would expect from a Jeep, but the fuel mileage, especially for a 4x4, is amazing. Here's a small SUV that gets the same mileage as a mid-size car. It's a reliable vehicle, that suits the urban lifestyle, yet lets you get out and rip it up on weekends.

    Pros: Great off-roading capabilities, good on gas, not the large/bulky SUV we've come to expect

    Cons: Many features become useless when the temperature drops below freezing (ie: wireless tire pressure monitors)

    The Ultimate On-road/off-road Driving Experience At A Great Price. — If you're looking for an SUV that works well on the road and off, gets great mileage and has that traditional Jeep appeal--all at a great price--this car may be for you. I was also impressed with the technology in this lower priced model: from wireless sensors that tell you when your tires are low to a built-in flashlight. It's not as refined an interior as some of the comparable Japanese rivals (RAV 4, Forester) but it drives better than either.

    Owner for 0 years, 1 months

    Pros: Great mileage, good ride, stable (not "tippy"), stylish and traditional with the modern
    conveniences.

    Cons: Largely plastic interior.

    Best Vehicle I Ever Owned — I bought this vehicle from the executive lot brand spanking new in 2008. It has style, comfort, spacious seating and cargo space, great gas mileage, 4x4, great control and stability. I would definitely prefer owning another in the near future. Wish we hadn't had been involved in a 4 car pile up on the expressway...

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I loved everything about this vehicle. No complaints whatsoever.

    Cons: not a single one in my opinion
