Reviewed: 2007.5 Jeep Patriot

4dr SUV 172-horsepower 2.4L I4 6-speed shiftable CVT AWD

Why the 2007.5 Jeep Patriot?

Fuel economy

Advertised at 8.9ltrs/100km on long drives and resetting the feul consumption clock I have had it down to 4.6ltrs/100km

Ride smoothness

Handles really well especially cornering at speed no over/ under steer and grips road like you know what to a wet blanket.

Quietness

Not much road engine noise after 4 years of driving the same patriot.

Driving position & visibility

Adjustable driver seat height is a mojor plus.

Cargo capacity

Fantastic for long loads with collapsable front flat forward folding passenger seat.

Why Not the 2007.5 Jeep Patriot?

Dealer practices

Weekend holiday ruined because of lack of available parts in regional areas manged to find after market for PATRIOT. Dealer told me I had voided warranty because. What to do when 7hrs from home and family stuck in caravan all weekend without a vehicle.

Materials & workmanship

Rear tailgate window trim broken by dealer in the removal of window and ordered a new trim yet a trim for a dodge nitro arrived. Service centre installed new oil filter with filter wrench and punctured. 7hr non stop drive result no oil. Tow truck etc.
