3 out of 5 it is a great family vehicle.

I love my Jeep Patriot. It is a great family car. Kids have plenty of room in the back. I like the child lock in the windows so they cannot let the window down just whenever. There is plenty of room in the front to adjust your seat for a comfortable ride. Love the dash and what it has to offer. It is 4 wheel drive. The only thing I do not like about my Jeep is the trunk space. It is very small compared to the previous vehicle I had. Taking a trip mean using my bigger vehicle just to take everything we need. I do love the interior. It is black and grey. I like dark colors on the inside. The cloth is very easy to clean as well at the mats in the floor. I would love a sun roof as an added feature. I give this Jeep a 3 out of 5 because it has most everything you need in a Jeep, but could use some nice features to make it great.

Great cargo space when the rear seats are down.

I love my Jeep patriot because it is the perfect size for hauling and just everyday driving. It rides smooth and quiet. I have never had anything gone wrong on the vehicle except new tires. I do regular maintenance and oil changes and I think this helps keep everything running smoothly. The vehicle has plenty of legroom and rear seat passengers are comfortable as well. I have a roof rack for anything that will not fit in the rear. I have never used it. With the rear seats down there is plenty of room for anything. I have friends call me because they have bought items that will not fit in their car or trunk. I have people say I should get a new car, but I love my Jeep, I will not part with it.

Comfortable and reliable.

My Jeep patriot is extremely comfortable with plenty of space for storage. I am on the road a lot for work and it is the perfect size to feel comfortable when driving but also get great gas mileage (about 25 miles to the gallon). I have only had one issue with it since owning the vehicle and it was a quick part replacement. The throttle body went bad which I hear is very common with these cars. That is really the only downfall I have had with the vehicle. My model has heated seats and remote start which is fantastic when it gets cold.
