Jeep patriot, overall dependable and good buy.

Overall my patriot has been a great car to have. I purchased it used 2. 5 years ago from a private seller and since put 25,000 miles on it. I keep up with regular maintenance, oil changes after 4,000 miles and a yearly alignment, tire rotation, and air filter change. Thus far the only expensive repairs the car has needed were a wheel bearing replacement on the front driver side tire and a small wiring fix that caused a starting issue. Together theses repairs have cost about $2000 over the course of 2 years, but are not unexpected since the vehicle does have 143,000 miles on it. The only other change I made to the vehicle was a radio upgrade, this was just based on personal preference and the want for Bluetooth connectivity. My Jeep has leather interior and heated seats and fits 5 people comfortably, but is usually used for myself only.

Good to drive, but several mechanical issues.

I really love the look and feel of the car because I like SUV-type vehicles. However, I've had several issues since purchasing the car. I bought it used and it seemed to run just fine. After about a year of owning it, the following lights turned on at the same time: ABS, traction, EBS, and 4 wheel drive. I have done several things and have gone to several people to fix the issue, but no one knows what's wrong with it or how to fix it. The 4 wheel drive doesn't work anymore. I've also had issues with the fuse box - it ended up needing to be replaced and it was not easy to find a fuse box to fit my car. I enjoy driving it but all the mechanical issues make me wish I hadn't bought it in the first place.

Not fancy, but reliable and long-lasting!

Overall, this vehicle is very reliable and can get you where you need to go. It's simple and doesn't have any high tech features, but I'm content with just having an aux cord and A/C. The seats are comfortable, and there's a lot of room throughout the vehicle if you need to pack the car for a road trip. Some fun features include a very deep hidden center console, a built in outlet as well as a place for a car charger, and a built in flashlight in the trunk. I had to replace my power steering pump, but I haven't had any issues outside the regular realm of maintenance. I'm sure the newer versions are nicer, but I'm very content with this car.
