The Jeep patriot is the best SUV I have owned.

This vehicle is a mountain goat in the wintertime. It is fun to drive and when I first got it I would take it out for long drives just to enjoy being in it. I have had no maintenance problems. I have the 4x4 2. 4 l engine, 5 speed manual sport version and added the tow hitch, tow hooks, oil cooler myself to make it more capable. Fuel economy is better than advertised, I can easily get 30 - 31 mph on highways and 28 - 29 on the expressway. City driving gets down to 22 - 25. Acceleration in 5th gear is good for passing. The patriot corners well and has a tight turning radius, I can get into parking spaces that other smaller vehicles cannot without stopping and backing. It has room for four adults and some baggage. The back seats fold down, both or just one of them and then you'll have room for three and lots of baggage. It is limited in towing ability so do not get this expecting to haul heavy trailers around, 2, 000 lbs. is the limit. I am 6'4" and have plenty of head room and leg room but side to side gets a bit tight after several hours. The windows fog or frost up on the inside and it does sometimes take a considerable amount of time to warm up enough to clear them with the blowers. At below zero temps though you'll probably want to let it warm up anyhow. All in all it is a god vehicle. I'm an old school Jeep girl and I really like the "boxy" style of it. This is a great little SUV for the money, reliability, fuel economy, cargo space and overall comfort. The next one I get will have more features like Bluetooth, navigation, Sirius XM radio, remote start, etc. I didn't get these features in this one, but really wish I did!

One of the things I love about my Jeep patriot is the on/off switch for the 4x4.

My 2011 Jeep patriot is the base model with heated exterior side mirrors. I absolutely love it. The interior may look a little barren to some, but for me that just means that there's less upkeep and it'll last longer. It drives fun, and is extremely dependable. I also get 23 mpg which is one of my favorite things about it. I do have some issues with my suspension, but I am the third owner so I am not holding it against the patriot. That is what you'll usually see in any 4x4 vehicle, since people abuse and sell. Even with its issues it runs great and I haven't had any major problems. Be sure to check your spark plugs as mine were bad and it made it jerk upon acceleration and going up hills. It is a quick $10 fix you can do yourself. If your patriot has problems, rest assured you will learn more about vehicles as your Journey together progresses. I wouldn't have any other Jeep!

Are Jeeps all that, or are they overhyped?

I drive a 2011 white Jeep patriot. Before the Jeep, I drove a 2014 Nissan Altima, and I loved it. The Altima had seat warmers, Bluetooth, nice speakers and interior, and the air-conditioning and heating systems worked quickly, and I found that I was never waiting longer than 2 minutes for the car's temperature to change to how I like it. The Jeep, however, is extremely basic, which is nice for teens who do not have a preference, but I am extremely picky and feel like my Jeep does not have much to offer. No seat warmers, no Bluetooth, the speakers are horrible, and I find that the ac and heater is a lot slower than my Nissan's. The inside of my Jeep, however, is modern and sleek. The car is easy to keep clean, and I find myself always getting complimented on how nice the car is.
