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.
