    Love It! A Truly Solid, Family Friendly Jeep! — I loved owning this Jeep. It rode great, had plenty of options, and was extremely reliable. The sound system was great, and there was plenty of room for hauling cargo. The A/C would get cold quickly, and the heater got extremely warm. I've been converted to Jeep for life!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling, very comfortable, and fun to drive! This Jeep feels solid on the road with a nice quiet ride, and the 4x4 truly grips the road in all conditions.

    Cons: None really.

    Great Suv With Great Gas Mileage For A Low Price! — This is a great sporty little SUV. It gets extremely great gas mileage. I don't think any other SUV could compare gas wise with the Jeep Patriot. It has lots of interior space. I have two kids and this works perfect for our family!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This is a SUV with the best gas mileage ever!

    Cons: There is a lack of power in the engine.

    Great Family Vehicle But Not Much Of A Mans Vehicle. — This is a great vehicle but not big enough for me. Drives very smooth and handles very well. Interior is nice and clean and updated. I love the touch screen Sirius satellite radio. Overall excellent family car just not as big as I would like.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Stylish and good looking but still rugged.

    Cons: Not big enough overall.

    Absolutely Love This Car! . For The Size, Cost And Features...nothing Compares. — Love the style, comfort, ride, and fuel economy of my patriot. It really does not accommodate a family of five. The center seat floor space really has no foot space because the rear seat cup holder sits there. Perfect for families with small children or if you won't be using the rear seat for long trips. Power is great with e manual transmission for added power...plus a little extra fuel economy Overall, I would most definitely recommend this vehicle. Compare it to others in it's class...you can't touch the price. And the simple no frills version worked perfectly for us. The kids just loved the manual windows!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great accessible cargo space without the look of a hatchback.  Super easy to drive. So much better than a boring sedan...for under 20k....Sporty and rugged is tough to find in this price range.  Everything is very easy to clean and user friendly.  Very accessible spare tire and cargo area.  

    Cons: We have three growing teens who quickly outgrew the back seat

    Great Car - Fun To Drive Around Town By JeepGuy915

    This is a fun car to drive. Mine has FWD & 5 speed manual transmission, which I think gives it more peppiness during acceleration. It handles well, with a low center of gravity (so it takes curves b... Read More
