  2013 Jeep Patriot - one day test drive
A member in New Brunswick, Canada

Best Reason to Buy the Jeep Patriot: Interior styling
Looks much more expensive than my 2009 patriot's interior. Very rich, good quality, great design. Looks even more expensive than this cheapest jeep is. Perhaps the best interior for my taste, comparable (in cheaper comparable vehicles) only with nissan rogue and subaru impreza/forester/xv. Very pleasant place to be for long drives. Drove the jeep for 3 hours, didn't want to stop. Folding front passenger seat is a real treat - you can put your snowboard inside without any problem. :)

Best Reason Not to Buy the Jeep Patriot: Quietness
The engine is basically the same engine as in Mitsubishi Outlander, Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage - this is a Hyundai-Mitsubishi-Chrysler designed so called World Engine. It is very reliable, but quite noisy.

Best Reason to Buy the Jeep Patriot: Exterior styling
classic Cherokee look, corners make parking a cinch.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Jeep Patriot: Fuel economy
I hoped for better mpgs. It is a little bit under the EPA estimates, especially in the winter time.

  Patriot
A member in Colorado, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Jeep Patriot: Fuel economy
Fantastic fuel economy.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Jeep Patriot: Controls and instruments
Every bolt in the front suspensions on these things come loose in normal driving. I return to the shop every 10000 miles to have the front end re-tightened.

Best Reason to Buy the Jeep Patriot: Price or payments
The vehicle met all of my requirements: 4x4, reasonable fuel economy, reasonable towing capacity. I find the car to be roomy with excellent cargo space and it's easy to bring down the rear seats. The turn radius is amazing. I can pratically drive this thing around a tree. I was amazed at what I was able to do when I had to back a trailer around a bunch of obstacles. The dealer is the best dealership that I have ever done business with.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Jeep Patriot: Reliability & durability
I was left stranded 200 miles away from home when I could not get the car out of park and had to have it towed. The car was practically brand new. It took a week to get the car repaired. Chrysler fixed the car at no cost but I had to pay to have someone take me home and then back to pick up the car. Many rear suspension parts had to be replaced with only 45,000 KM (27500 miles) on the car.

I live in the NY Hudson Valley, and we get lots of snow. I needed an inexpensive 4 wheel drive to get around in the winter. The patriot is sufficient for this need.
