After 3 years and 75,000 this car has proven to be unreliable so much so that my wife doesn't trust it anymore and is begging me to get rid of it. On a scale of one to ten with 10 being the highest I would give this car a 3 at the most for overall satisfaction. The thing has squeeks and rattles of all kinds. I've had to replace way too many parts for a car with such low milleage. The suspension is weak and the electronics are fragile. This is the first North American car that I've bought in 20 years. I'm very disappointed with it.
2010 0 Both me and my friends patriot have had suspension problems. Suspension problems seem to be the thing with these vehicles. I barely drive mine and have less than 15k miles and my friend drives his every day. I still got these same problems. So far I have had one tie rod end and both front lower ball joints have went bad. These were replaced with Moog after market parts. Both control arms on mine and my friends have been replaced. Metal valve stem nuts are another area of failure. Notice that newer Patriots all have rubber valve stems now. My brother who is a mechanical engineer believes that the nuts were not designed to account for weakening by the elements and fatigue caused a the nuts to split. We actually had to JB weld the valve stem nuts to the valve stem to make it back from a trip without the tires deflating. I have replaced all four valve stems with after market dorman ones along with theirTPMS sensors.

bulletproof reliability, never had a single problem. the same with all guys who own one. minor problems - yes, read about this on forums, but mostly - the most reliable vehicle from jeep lineup.
2007 4dr SUV 172-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual AWD
Very stout - good in snow, 4-hi is sufficient when off the pavement.

At 30K miles, no major issues. Seems that it is designed for the long haul. Decent clearance and capability for off road crawling.

Quite reliable

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.

Suspension arms front and rear are very week. Even if riding only on highway.

The 2009 Q5 is my wife's car. I drive it occasionally, we have 42,200 miles on the car. It has proven to be the best car we have owned having only one a/c issue last summer causing the a/c to stop working. We had the car repaired at the local Audi dealer. We bought the car new, ordering it from a dealer, took delivery of the car and have loved the car ever since. My wife will not trade the car. It drives great, steering and body is so firm and it's like driving a race car. Plenty of power, drives wonderfully on the interstates, I just can't find anything wrong. Don't understand how the 2009 reliability is so low. The car has never failed to start take us where we want, brings us home.
