Perfect size for a family of four.

The Jeep Patriot is an excellent vehicle. The 4 wheel drive makes it extremely reliable in snowy/blizzard conditions. The size is roomy enough for a family of four, yet small enough to park in those tight spaces. The trunk storage is surprisingly roomy for the size of the vehicle and can accommodate luggage for a family of four. One of the best features is the seat height adjustment, as my husband is a full 12 inches taller than I am. We have a terrible time finding cars that are comfortable for both of us to drive and the Patriot fits the bill. The only thing that could be improved are some of the comfort features, such as an option for heated seats. Overall this has been a great vehicle at an excellent price point.

Very displeased with the 09 Jeep Patriot

Overall I do not like this vehicle at all. Some of the main issues that I have experienced make owning this car very frustrating. First of all you cannot do any type of work on your car by yourself (for example no oil changes). You have to take it to a shop so they can remove the skid plate to be able to reach the oil filter. And the same goes for any mechanical repairs as well. I am very displeased with this vehicle and I regret the day I bought it. If I would've known it was a shop only vehicle I would of passed over it in an instant.

The speed sensors do go out a 50, 000.

The Jeep patriot offers great gas mileage. It is very comfortable layout inside. The worst part of it is that on the 2009 Jeep patriot models a around 50, 000 miles the speed sensors start to go out and those will need to be replaced. The four cylinder does not have much take off speed but once it does get up to speed it keeps pace with how fast you want to go. The interior is very roomy and the backseat does collapse so you can pack many things inside and even use it to sleep if you are not over six feet tall that is.
