Not fancy, but reliable and long-lasting!

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

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.

The technology built in the jeep patriot could be improved.

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

The biggest problem I had with my 2008 jeep patriot would be the technology built in it. I had to constantly bring my car in to get codes cleared. The sensors kept getting confused thinking my car was in bad shape when it really was not. I had to get work done that cost $1200 dollars. Nothing physical with the body of the car has ever gone wrong. Durable. I feel safe in this car. Just the technology built inside was acting strange.

Jeeps are great vehicles and can give you the best memories

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

My Jeep is an older vehicle so problems will come with it, however, the problems/repairs that I needed to have done were things almost anyone is going to deal with when a car is 11-12 years old. Something I took a very close attention to before buying my car was the mileage and how often oil changes were done. Any car will last up to 300,000 miles it the oil changes were done on time and correctly.

Very dependable vehicle with one complaint of sunroof leaking.

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

Vehicle has been exceptional besides that the sun roof leaks. Been the one and only downside of this car. Other than that it has been very dependable and a very nice ride. Interior has lasted and is still in great condition. Exterior has minor scratches that would be expected of a car that is 11 years old.

Great family vehicle and long trip vehicle

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

It drive and rides very well. You can move in and out of the vehicle smoothly and the back seat lays down so it so easy to move things. Also it has an actual plug in for a charger. It look nice and I get a lot of compliments on it. I would absolutely recommend this vehicle. It gives great gas mileage.

Real life struggles with my Jeep Patriot.

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

I don't like that it stutters a little when accelerating from a complete stop. There is also a leak from the ceiling light in the trunk which causes some annoying problems when it rains. There are also some terrible blind spots which have cause some close calls after initially purchasing the Jeep.

Jeep Patriot review. Okay vehicle. Would be better if it was a newer model

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

There are air condition Compressor issues. Also Transmission issues when first purchased. Not enough engine power. It does however is good on gas. Despite some major issues it's been performing well enough to take us to and from our destinations. I will purchase the brand again just a newer model.

Reviewing the positives and negatives of the Jeep Patriot

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

This car has great gas mileage compared to other Jeep models. Doesn't have as much horse power and isn't able to tow more than a small trailer. Doesn't perform very well in the winter, hard to get traction when there is a lot of ice or snow. Very easy to take care of and very affordable.

Green four doors. Sporty SUV/jeep

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

Good on gas. Very dependable has over 150,000 miles on it. Pretty much basic. Tires are cheap to buy..don't have to worry about power windows going out because they are old school roll up yourself windows. Great for going up hills. Perfect to put your kayak or any outdoor things

I like my Jeep but it did have some problems.

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

It's taken a lot of work to the suspension and other things. The engine is strong and good though. It doesn't have any extra luxuries, but it is comfortable when it drives. The wheel sensor clip rusted so I had to replace both rear hub bearings. It also needed new exhaust.

- Robert P

It has been the best car I've ever had.

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport

No problems at all. As long as I keep up with maintenance it will take me anywhere. I've had it for 4 years and it has been one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned. Whenever I buy a new car I'm going to keep it a Patriot because they are trustworthy
