Trusty Ol' Girl Gets 'Er Done - And Eats Gas Money While She's At It

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

I had to rate the Jeep Patriot a 4/5 because there are a few issues with this make/model that become obvious later on, but it's held together well for the two years that I've had it. Out of the whole two years, I have only broke down twice - once for overheating, and once because it was almost blizzard conditions outside and the engine just couldn't warm up - and both times the Jeep recovered almost immediately. The biggest issue I have with it is the mpg - it never really gets above 20, and that's not super efficient for me since I'm on the road a lot - gas gets expensive when you can only get about 300 miles per tank or less. It also feels a bit top-heavy sometimes and wind can catch it pretty easy, so curves are a concern when going around them. The seats are comfortable, though, and the features inside like heated seats and the power outlet are godsends. Tons of room for storage when you put down the seats, and the spare tire is easy to access. All in all, a reliable ol' girl.

3 out of 5 it is a great family vehicle.

2012 Jeep Patriot

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.

Good little Jeep not so good transmission

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

I really like my Jeep Patriot. It's roomy and has great amenities (I.e. heated seats, an actual outlet plug, great stereo, 4 wheel drive you can turn on and off to save on fuel). I purchased this vehicle brand new with a 4 cylinder engine, and my only complaint about it is the transmission. It has a CVT ( continuously variable transmission) transmission, and it is very unresponsive and sluggish. If you need to go in a hurry it takes some time for it to respond and pick up the pace. The shifting points are weird and it is not a very smooth shift. I have an automatic with the option of using it as a standard, and it does the same thing on either setting. I have taken it 4 wheeling and it actually held its own pretty well with the wranglers. It's great for playing and everyday use like running errands and driving kids around.

2012 Jeep Patriot- Review from a Owner for 5 Years

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

The 2012 Jeep Patriot is a reliable car. It has lasted me over 120,000 miles and is still going pretty strong. It has had minor problems and issues but nothing out of the ordinary. The biggest problem with it now is that the transmission seems like it's beginning to go, but it is happening slowly. I believe this is normal for the high mileage. My model is the base one with crank windows and manual locks. They have never broke which is good but the technology is a little outdated for a 2012 car. The AC on it is amazing and very cold though. The seats are cotton and moderately comfortable. The gas mileage is about 20 mpg since it's a 2.0 Liter 4 cylinder and 2 wheel drive. Overall, good car for its money that is reliable and gets the job done. Great for a first car or can be enjoyed in the decked out 4 wheel drive version.

My vehicle is exactly what I need right now.

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

My vehicle is very comfortable and rides really nicely. In the 2 years since I bought my Jeep I have not had any major problems. There have been a couple things needing to be fixed, like new tires and a new battery. Right now I think there is something else needing to be fixed that I need to have looked at. I've been driving down the road a couple times in the last couple weeks and my Jeep would just stop, but not die or shut off. The gas and brake pedals would stop working. I had the ignition fuse reset which seems to have helped, but for how long? The features are nice as I have power everything and hands free phone capability. Only thing is that I cannot get my phone to hook up to the Bluetooth in my Jeep to actually use the hands free feature, and I've done exactly as directions say to do.

- Erika L

Great cargo space when the rear seats are down.

2012 Jeep Patriot

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.

Reliable Family Vehicle with Amazing Storage Options!

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

I love my Jeep Patriot! The Manual version is easy to shift with its hill assistance! In the five years I have owned it, I haven't had any major issues! The seats are comfortable, but the back seats could be better! I am unable to put a car seat forward facing in the middle because the back seat isn't designed for this! I think this is a huge disappointment because it is safer for children to ride in the middle! The hatch of the Jeep is incredibly spacious that can fit several suitcases! The gas mileage is pretty good on the highway! My favorite feature of my Jeep is the Manual transmission that shifts so smooth!

My vehicle has a 4WD control on the console that you flip to activate the 4WD

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

I have owned my vehicle for 7 yrs. It has been very reliable with no problems that whole entire time except about 3 months ago when the check engine light came on. I did have diagnostics done on the car and it was getting a code about the fuel injection system. The light kept going on and off for about a month. Then one day when I was getting gas I remembered I heard that if you don't tighten the gas cap enough the check engine light will come on. So ever since then I tighten my gas cap about 4 or 5 times and the check engine light has not come back on.

Jeep Patriot-pros outweigh the cons

2012 Jeep Patriot Base

I especially love the size and look of my car. I always desired a car of the Jeep brand or something that looked similar. The Jeep Patriot is a safer option for Jeep, rather than a wrangler/open top model. The size is perfect. It is not too large and is easy to maneuver, yet the large trunk, plus the fact that the back seats lower down, allows for great use of my trunk. I am able to use my car to move large loads, such as household items. My biggest complaint is it does not Drive the best in rain or snow. It does not have 4 wheel drive.

- Elizabeth B

Comfortable and reliable.

2012 Jeep Patriot

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.

Jeep Patriot 2012 Review

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

For me it has been a dependable family vehicle. I was wanting a small SUV and it was perfect. I only put four stars because the back seat is slightly small. If it were just people sitting, there'd be plenty of space. In my Jeep I need to have a car seat in the back and it causes the passenger seat to need to be pulled up a little. So it makes the passenger sit up completely straight, if not slightly forward. But other than that, it's a reliable vehicle and hasn't caused us any issues since having it for almost a year now.

- Shelby P

It's the perfect size to easily drive/fit into spaces and still has plenty of interior space.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love the size (interior and exterior), driving capabilities, look, and feel of it. I do only have the basic model though so it's not equipped with bluetooth and I can't control the radio/music from my steering wheel. Since I actually only listen to music I have on my phone (I have odd tastes) I have to use an audio cable (which doesn't always tune correctly) and change the music from my physical phone. Also, not as big of a deal, but my Jeep is not 4WD, which I grew up with and feel a little vulnerable without.

- Pawla S

Great looking comfortable mid size SUV for small to medium families.

2012 Jeep Patriot Limited

Overall it is a great car nice interior comfortable for long rides. Good amount of room however not enough for a larger family. The console is user friendly and sleek. I have had it for 4 years and have only have to keep up on the oil and basic maintenance. Downside is the car does not hold a lot of gas so I am filling up at least once a week. Also it does not have a lot of power so if you are someone who likes to get up and go you would not like this vehicle. I really enjoy this car it looks nice and is safe.

- Amy C

Don't use the windows and everything will be ok

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

The 2012 has the same issues as previous models. The clock keeps poor time, even with fresh battery. The window motors give out quickly. Something is live in the CD player area when vehicle is off, hinting at the electrical issue that gets the window motors. Other than that it is very reliable, very little mechanical issues. The seats are comfy but I feel like the seats headrest is in the way when turning to view behind me. Side mirrors are poorly built and both cracked at separate times while driving.

- Jennie M

The thing I like about the vehicle is the was its shaped.

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

Me and my husband bought the car used and a dealership. The first couple of weeks the car would turn on like normal, but after driving for a few miles it would automatically turn off on its own. And it was scary a few time when you drive on the freeway and just shuts off without warning. We had it checked and it was the sensor that had to be replaced. Since we had it replaced it didn't turn off anymore. I like my car even though that was the only problem we had with it.

- Natalie R

Review of Jeep patriot: excellent first car and perfect for smaller people.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I am short and skinny so this car is the perfect size for me. It is comfortable. The seat is adjustable. Plenty of space. Good for travel. I love how much room I have in the back. Good speaker system. Plenty of hidden space to put things. Extra tire is hidden and out of the way. I love that I have an outlet in the front of the car. This was my first car and I am glad I choice a Jeep patriot. I feel safe when I drive it because it is not super close to the ground.

- Ryan C

Great drive but issues with cheap gas

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

Well it drives just fine hasn't has any issues until recently if I use cheap gas I noticed when u push the gas pedal it kind of like slows down or get stuck and I don't know the right way to describe it but it really weird and reminds me of if u were running out of gas or something. However if in go to chevron I notice that it will not do it then. But other than that issue I love the car it's easy to drive and the inside is very comfortable.

- Kati B

Built in the USA at a plant here in Toledo, Ohio by American workers!

2012 Jeep Patriot

I like my Jeep patriot because it is very versatile. It is a perfect family car for up to five people and then you can put down the rear seats and haul items. The rear hatchback is very helpful. It has good gas mileage and is fun to drive. There is plenty of legroom in the front seat for me and I am 6'2". It is built very solid and handles great in the now. Jeep is the most American made car in the us with the most made in the USA parts.

Jeep Patriot: room for kiddos

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

I have not had any issues with my jeep. I prove that it is roomy and practical. I have two car seats in the back seat and I do not feel like they are crammed. It is the most basic package, only the windows are electric, but I like it that way. Gas mileage is decent, around the 15 to 17 mpg range. Its comfortable. My biggest complaint is that it is fairly noisy when driving on the interstate. Definitely not a luxury vehicle

- Amanda E

It's a great buy. I feel like I got a great deal. It runs and drives great.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love the performance of my vehicle. Always reliable and I love to still drive it after all this time. It rides so smooth. I only had one child in a car seat at the time I purchased it which was perfect but now that I have two there is very little room left in the back seat after both seats are in. That would be my only complaint but as far as the performance it's been good to me and it's fun to drive.

- Bridget L

My Jeep handles great and is fun to drive on the freeway!

2012 Jeep Patriot

My Jeep Patriot is a great mid sized vehicle. It handles very well on the road with a smooth ride and very good gas mileage. The interior is comfortable and flexible, you can lower the back seat to give you more cargo space for hauling large items. The Jeep has a roof rack which comes in handy on vacations. All in all I am very pleased with my Jeep and when I replace it I will buy another Jeep!

- Michael B

I have good viewing in my rear view mirror and side mirrors.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I am very happy about my 2012 Jeep patriot so far. It gets me to where I to go, rain or shine. I try to keep up with maintenance the best I can, and on a fixed income, that is not easy. I have wheel covers that are loose, and I tightened when I hear it making a noise. I can transport items on top of vehicle if I tie down and supports item or items and drive slow until I get where I am going.

- Robert S

Do not get a jeep unless it is a wrangler.

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

Ever since I can remember people told me not to get a jeep BC of it is issues. Day off the lot check engine light pops on. Needs Cadillac converter or 02 sensors. Three weeks in need a new strut/ suspension. I cannot drive up the mountain without overheating. Four months in my alignment is off. If you were to get a jeep just go for the wrangler. Only thing jeep seems to really care about.

Jeep Patriot Do's & Don'ts

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

Sound of the tires driving is loud, nothing's wrong at all just how the car sounds. The trunk is extremely small we have 2 kids and our double stroller doesn't fit, if you are tall the front seats are not spacious. It's really good on gas! The seats are cloth and I love that they also heat up. There's no a/c in the back seats which is frustrating , also no charger port in the back either.

- Kelly C

2012 Jeep patriot works great, looks great, and a very safe vehicle.

2012 Jeep Patriot

All standard besides the vehicle itself. The windows are hand crank and there is no cruise control. Besides that it runs wonderfully and it pretty efficient on gas usage. I feel safe driving it and I have had electrical issues. Overall the struggles that come with the fully standard car are paid off in the fact I never have any issues. She runs great and has all of the amenities I need.

- Rachel N

Four wheel drive is great! And it's very reliable. Gets me to work every day.

2012 Jeep Patriot

It's very reliable. Always starts right up. The down side it makes a noise that no one can identify. Just a bit annoying. I've only had to replace the fan in my air conditioner and tires and breaks, I get regular oil changes. I like that it's big enough to haul stuff but it's not so big that it's hard to drive. So, yes I really enjoy my Jeep..plus it's great in snow!

Jeep patriot pros and cons.

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

I love that my jeep is compact, yet still an SUV. It is easy to drive and handles well. I have had one issue which was a year ago when I would go to put gas in it and the temperatures were very cold- it would not let me fill up. This happened a few times but once it got warmer it stopped and has not happened since. I also had problems with it overheating in the summer.

- Sarah W

Stylish car with lot a of room but bad interior and bad engine

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

My vehicle has a lot of room but also consistently needs fixed. The engine is not great. The inside is very simple but has everything you need. The cup holders light up it's pretty neat. I don't like the seats because they are not leather they are cloth and I have gotten stains on them that will not come out and also a burn hole. The car is also hard to clean

- Molly M

It is a very reliable car.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I have to say that my Jeep makes me feel safe whenever I drive. I feel that my car is very reliable. I like that it lets me know when there's something going on with my vehicle. I like that I can drive with confidence because I know my Jeep will let me know when the tire pressure is low, oil change is due and if one of the fluids is low. It is a safe car.

- Margarita R

Unique features available in the Limited.

2012 Jeep Patriot Limited

I wish the mpg was a bit higher. I haven't had any major issues - only routine and normal replacement maintenance. Jeep has both automatic and manual transmission capabilities, which I wasn't aware of when I purchased the vehicle. A few minor routine, or normal, noises that periodically occur. I like the Bluetooth and Sirius capabilities.

- Sally W

The patriot: comfortable and reliable.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I find my vehicle extremely reliable. I have never had my car break down and only had to do minimal repairs. I have replaced my tires twice in the six years that I have owned my vehicle. It is an extremely comfortable car that has enough leg room to stretch out. It can fit five people easily and no-one complains about being crammed into the car.

- Lilly G

Reliable and great for new moms.

2012 Jeep Patriot Limited

I feel like my car fits my life and personality like a glove. It is sporty and has plenty of room. I have had several jobs since I had it and it is big in car I have multiple passengers or if I need to transport items. I love that it is not low to the ground. I like that it is sporty as well. I really haven't had any problems since I bought it.

- Alejandra A

Lady Jeep Patriot with lots of space for your kids!

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love my Jeep had it for 3 years so far, very roomy inside can fit my large stroller with a big speaker in the trunk. Repairs are cheap along with oil changes at affordable prices. Best car I've owned out of 3 other cars I've had. Don't plan on selling or getting rid of it anytime soon. Just hit 100,000 miles and all I needed was a new battery

- Alexandria C

very durable, has lasted me 5 years with no problems

2012 Jeep Patriot Limited

really smooth vehicle with very few problems. 4 cylinders so doesn't have that much pick up but its still very solid. Also is 4 wheel drive which for me I live in the northeast so it is good in the snow and icy roads. Good gas mileage along with a decent sized tank so you're not always catching yourself filling up every day.

- nick G

I am happy with my Jeep so I will said to people to buy this kind of car.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Well the 2012 Jeep I love all kind of Jeep it so amazing to drive with your family's on any trip and it fix all the things you need and so smooth to drive in the highway and I do not have any problem with my beautiful Jeep love it. Thank you. And also it save you a lot has, the Jeep get full tank with 30. 00 dollars .

- Mildred M

Reliable 2012 Jeep Patriot.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I have 120, 000 miles on my Jeep. I have not needed to do maintenance on it until now. I have been able to not have any accidents with it. So now just had an alignment check and a tune up. Only problem was that I could not enable the cruise control and that was corrected by cleaning the cable connections to the computer.

- Robert H

I do not care for my Jeep patriot.

2012 Jeep Patriot

It's not very old but I feel like it is always losing power and it does not accelerate like it used to. I need to take it into her it looked at because the steering wheel is also starting to shake when I am on the highway. I have had Jeeps in the past and loved them but I probably will not buy another Jeep patriot.

- Melinda S

Cute. Compact. Crafty. Cool.

2012 Jeep Patriot Limited

I have had issues with the transmission. Accelerating is difficult on the car at times and I have had to replace the entire transmission. Besides the issues with the transmission, I love my jeep. I wanted a bigger vehicle that wasn't oversized. It is perfect for me. It gets fair gas mileage and drives smoothly.

- Andrea B

Reliable 2012 Jeep Patriot

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

I bought this car used in 2014. It has been a very reliable car. I have kept the oil changed regularly and kept the tires rotated and changed as needed. The only tiny thing I don't like about this vehicle is the fact the front seat sits so low it's a little difficult to see out. I sit on an added cushion.

- Cassie T

Roomy for people and stuff. Good on gas and dependable.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I have had no problems with my Jeep. I can carry anything I want since there is lots of room. I love the heated seats on cold days and the fact that the doors lock by themselves. It gets good gas mileage. Best of all, it is ready to go when I am. On trips it is comfortable and all friends have leg room.

- Jane M

4 wheel drive and heated seats.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love my Jeep patriot it has 4 wheel drive and I can drive on the beach. The ride is a great ride. I love my inside has a lot of room and a big back to fit things. I have two grandson in cars seats and I have room in the car with the two car seats. The seats are comfortable. The seats are also heated.

- Janet Y

Some quirks, but still a great vehicle!

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

The Jeep Patriot is the perfect size SUV- easy to maneuver and park, but large enough to not be intimidated on the road. Seems to have lights come on and little fixes slightly more often than my other vehicles, but nothing pricey yet (knock on wood) and I have owned the vehicle for nearly a year now.

- Stephanie S

jeep patriot runs well but not for long distance

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

I like this car but not reliable for long distances. I have has several problems has the car has gotten older and it has been expensive to fix but well worth it. I love jeep and the comfort of the car. I also like the interior of the car and amount of room there is for groceries and other people

- Allison M

2012 Jeep Patriot, still running like new.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Over all it is a great vehicle. Got it pre-owned with practically no miles. Has about 150, 000 now. All parts are still original and everything still works perfectly. The in town and highway gas mileage are wonderful. This Jeep has driven cross country (1600 miles one way) at least three times.

- Bec E

Cvt a confusing transmission. Could have used a regular automatic transmission.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I am not a fan of the cvt transmission that they use in this vehicle. It is a bit confusing to use. People who are used to a regular automatic transmission may find this type of transmission difficult to understand the way that it works. I have also read that they cost a lot of money to repair.

- Roberta M

My life with my Jeep Patriot !

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

not many problems have happened in the 4 years of me having this care. The value is comparable to the price. I only had minor repairs that are price pretty fair. It's also good on gas. It uses unleaded type which helps. Now that I have had this car for sometime now it does have slow takeoff.

- Jerry T

I would give this jeep a 9 out of 10.

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

My vehicle I have had for 2 years now and it is a 2012. Since having this vehicle I have spent probably $500 on repairs. I put a lot of miles each year on the car and it has been able to handle the long travel. It rides smooth and gets great gas mileage. I would 100% recommend this vehicle.

- Kelly D

The most important thing is that I should have read the Consumer's Report on the vehicle before I purchased it. The car was rated extremely poorly and now I know why. My advice is to never buy a Jeep !

2012 Jeep Patriot

The car has leaked since the day I got it and the dealer has never been able to repair it. The car is very unsteady under windy conditions and is especially unsteady when it is passed on the highway by a big truck. Changing the oil is a pain in the neck because the skid plate is in the way.

- guy G

Jeep patriot is a must have.

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

Great on gas. I have had my jeep for 7 years and it still runs great. The size is perfect for small families. Rooms for weekend getaways. Great performance on the road. I normally spend 30 dollars to fill up the gas tank and it last me a week going back and forth to work. I would recommend.

- Sandra A

Comfortable and plenty of room.

2012 Jeep Patriot Limited

Plenty of storage space in back for simple grocery trips to a day at the beach And all the gear to make the perfect sand castle. Seats are large and comfortable with lots of storage in front for all the extra little things. Back seat fits 3 comfortable with cup holders enough for everyone.

- Crystal D

family fun jeep for the whole family and friends

2012 Jeep Patriot Base

it has bucket seats for added comfort as well as rides smooth ride especially over rough terrain. The features of the two DVD players in the back of the seats is an added blessing when on long drives with a full jeep on the road.rarely have had any problems just maintenance and 1 recall

- david N

My experience with the Jeep Patriot

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

My vehicle is old and it has a lot of miles on it. I don't care for the square shape and the seats are uncomfortable. The vehicle doesn't have a pick up power when going on the highway. I don't like the shaking in the mufflers either. This is definitely not my style of vehicle at all.

- Christine S

You get the best of both worlds with the Jeep patriot.

2012 Jeep Patriot

My car runs very well and is ideal for a college student. My car has comfortable seats and large trunk space. You get the best of both worlds in the Jeep patriot as you can go off-road if need and have the good look of a Jeep. It has exceptionally well air condition and runs very well.

- Christian Y

Jeep Patriot is a Great and Reliable First Car Purchase

2012 Jeep Patriot

Jeep runs great and has since my purchase years ago. However, I've learned from driving others vehicles, that it is incredibly basic in function. Everything is manual, one charger port, etc. It also has an incredibly tiny engine. It's a great starter car and reliable but nothing fancy.

- Alayna J

A good car- not the best but if your looking for something mediocre this is it.

2012 Jeep Patriot

It was a good car for a while but I didn't take as much care of it as I should have. It has scratches and it broke down a couple times, although that was from exterior forces. The seats are not that comfortable but they are not bad. It is a good car, but I didn't take good care of it.

- Julianna T

It does not have enough horsepower.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Not enough horsepower to pull it as it being a 4x4 it is only a 4 cylinder. It has plenty of room in it and I love the color which is silver. The 4 wheel drive works good in it and the radio speakers are awesome, I haven't had any major problems with it since I bought it back in 2013.

- Suzanne C

Classic Jeep, perfect for a first vehicle

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

My Jeep is a very reliable vehicle, although the car burns through oil and gas very quickly. The only downside is the manual windows and the manual lock system that makes it hard when having a child and full hands. Comfort is perfect and definitely one of my favorite classic vehicles.

- Dakota F

2012 Jeep Patriot is great.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I have never had any problems with the car, I credit that with keeping it up to date with oil changes and tires and tire rotations. It is quiet and it has great gas mileage being that it is not 4 wheel drive however it still does well in snow. It is size makes you feel safe as well.

- Phoebe O

It�s great on gas mileage! It�s like driving a car and not an SUV

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

This vehicle is great in the snow because it has 4 wheel drive, but is also great on gas. I spend only about $30.00 a week in gas for my car. One downfall about the car is that it is only a 4 cylinder which means it does not have a lot of power when you hit the gas pedal right away .

- Kayla M

Snow performance and comfort.

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

One problem that has come up a few times is a small evap leak. Fixed it once and it came up again about a year later. Other than that, I find this car very reliable. The four wheel drive and off road option perform great in the snow. Vehicle is comfortable and I love the sunroof.

- Angie L

4x4 necessary in rural western pa in winter.

2012 Jeep Patriot

My vehicle is used, but recently new to me. Thus, I have little experience with it. But I like it so far. Not very powerful, but gets me where I want to go. The important feature is 4x4. In western pa, you need that in winter, especially as I live up a long driveway in the woods.

- Frank L

Very reliable but lacks in comfort.

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

I am very happy with my cars performance. I do not find the vehicle to be very comfortable especially on long road trips. There is a bar that you lift to move the seat forward and back that gets in my way and is uncomfortable. Also the heat is either too much or too little.

- Terry W

Jeep patriots is the new minivan.

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

I love my jeep, it runs great, has lots of space, safe, and reliable. My daughters car seat, toys and two dogs fit in it great. I would recommend any type of jeep but this is the cool mom vehicle. My two medium sized dogs fit in the open truck and it's great on gas mileage.

- Kayla A

Jeep patriot comfort but costly.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love the way the Jeep patriot drives but we have had issues with it since we bought in 2013. The tires, transmission, and other issues arose shortly after buying it used. However, it is the upgraded version so I do enjoy the sunroof, Bose speakers, and Bluetooth features.

- Heather L

Good not great or tough or quick

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

The transmission is awful and acceleration is difficult as such.. it is also seems to not really be a 'tough' Jeep. The four wheel drive MIGHT get you through a dusting of snow or layer of mud but do not expect to truly go off roaring or drive through snowing conditions.

It is very good on gas. Especially if you leave it on cruise control.

2012 Jeep Patriot

It is a all around great car. It is also great for winter and great when you go off-road. It hold up to 5 people and it works good for hauling small and lumber. It also has a navigation system to find the shortest route and how long it will take you to get to there.

- Pamela C

Red remote start, 4 wheel drive wonder for all your needs!

2012 Jeep Patriot

The transmission began acting up after only 5 years owning the vehicle causing the car to need to be pulled over more than once while on long drives. apparently there is also a common problem among Jeep Patriots with the fuel intake valve that needs to be addressed.

- Hayley H

Part time 4 wheel drive so I can use it when only necessary.

2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude

Right now the fuel tank requires me to hold the pump down by hand to fill it. And they say it needs a new tank. I really believe this should be a recall. Otherwise I love my patriot it drives smooth and it is a good size and comfortable and I feel very safe in it.

- Roberta D

My Jeep Patriot is the ultimate vehicle

2012 Jeep Patriot Limited

I've had no problems out of my jeep. It has been my favorite vehicle thus far. Its reliable it runs smooth. My air conditioning is exceptional. The heater is great during the winter months. My music player is the best the sound quality is phenomenal. I love my car.

- Robert G

I love the patriot, you won't regret your buy!!

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

Ride smooth easy gas pedal nice interior. Its comfortable seating great radio system. I love having bluetooth as well. Everyone that drives it loves how smooth it is. It's quiet I have had overheating problems just recently though. And I am only the second owner.

- Taylor S

Definitely a good bang for your buck!

2012 Jeep Patriot Limited

Good gas mileage. Smooth ride. Good for transporting large items. Very reliable and rarely has any service issues. I'm in sales so it has over 117k miles on it and I bought it 6 years ago. I take it to Florida and back and only have to fill the tank a few times

- Sarah S

It's reliable, well used and well loved.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love the height and the fact that it fits four people spaciously. I also love the odd color because it's easy to find in a parking lot. I feel like it uses gas more quickly but it actually has similar gas mileage to my previous car. Otherwise no complaints.

- Al p

Poor performance and cheap quality on interior.

2012 Jeep Patriot Sport

Slow, stalls and does not have 4 wheel drive. The gas mileage isn't as good as it should be and the speakers vibrate no matter how loud the volume. The lights are not automatic and neither are the seats. The wheels are horrific. Ugliest wheels on any Jeep.

- Ashley F

Why Jeep is amazing and you should buy one.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Jeep is 100% reliable and is the safest vehicle I have ever owned. I know people who have Jeeps with over 200, 000 miles. If you do the routine maintenance they will last forever. I plan on passing mine on to my daughter and purchasing another for myself.

- Angela B

This Jeep is great and rides so smooth.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Very comfortable to drive. Has great passenger space. Would suggest making sure there's rear ac helps the car cool down or heat up better. Only downside is that there is not enough storage space around the driver's space. The 4WD is fun and smooth to use.

- Alyssa C

2012 Used Jeep Patriot review.

2012 Jeep Patriot

The 2012 Jeep gets decent gas mileage, like how it rides, have had no major problems since I purchased this in 2015. I just replaced the battery, and performs well. It has decent space in the rear compartment. I would purchase another Jeep in the future.

- Ruth A

White Jeep patriots. Year 2012. Sport. 4 door. Huge trunk.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Easy breaking plastic on the inside floor area. I love the ac / heat. Has hard time going fast. Car seat installation was easy. Trunk is spacious. Tire pressure goes low a lot even with new tires. It gets me to everywhere I need to go everyday so far.

- Tiffany H

It is a great automobile for the winter.

2012 Jeep Patriot

2011 Jeep patriot, purchased sept 2015. Mileage 134, 456, color is red. Use to supplement my income as an uber driver. Very reliable and I feel comfortable driving it. Included is Sirius XM radio, automatic locks, 4 wheel drive, heated seats, ac.

- Cathy B

It is a quality vehicle at a good price. It cost less than other vehicles in its class and out performs them as well.

2012 Jeep Patriot

My vehicle is reliable, and runs well. I have had no mechanical problems with it at all in years of heavy use. It is also good looking and as the jeep look doesn't change drastically from year to year it looks just like the new ones.

- Chad M

Good on gas and very dependable.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I like that I haven't had any major problems with it since I have had it. I like the interior. I like that it is to drive. I wish it was a smoother ride. I wish it was bigger in the back seat and back for hauling.

- Debra L

It is an all around great car! It was my first car and I've had it for some time now.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love the space I have in the vehicle and the gas mileage it gets with it being a small SUV. I do not care much for having to fix as much stuff on it as I have (transmission, air compressor, various other parts).

- Madison V

I like that it is a manual transmission and that I get decent gas mileage. It is not strictly a family/commuter car but I can also take it off road which I enjoy. I dislike that I've had so many repairs on it already, even though I bought it brand new. I had to get a new clutch at 101,000 miles!

2012 Jeep Patriot

It's the happy medium between something that gets you excellent gas mileage but isn't built to go off road, and something that gets terrible gas mileage that's an off road beast. Plus there's room for the family!

- Nathan W

I love me Jeep! It's the best suv I've had so far

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love my Jeep. It gets me where I need to be without any issues, great in winter. It is comfortable, a little bit of a gas hog, but it's a jeep, and probably gets the best gas mileage of the entire jeep line.

- Britney M

It's expensive to fix and or do monthly maintenance.

2012 Jeep Patriot

It's very expensive to fix and or maintain from my previous vehicles. Yes I do like riding in style, but the gas tank is small and i will probably sell it soon and get a better vehicle with better gas mileage.

- Scott l

That it is pretty basic, and is just a car, not a "possession".

2012 Jeep Patriot

Mid-size SUV with adequate storage area. It handles well and is comfortable. It has a sunroof, radio/CD stereo and cruise control. It gets reasonable gas mileage and costs less than $30 for a typical fill-up.

- Robert B

I love the comfort of my Jeep patriot.

2012 Jeep Patriot

This car is comfortable to drive in size as well as the set up on the interior. There is plenty of storage and space in the back seat as well as the trunk. My biggest complaint is the poor gas mileage.

- Kylie W

The Jeep patriot is very reliable.

2012 Jeep Patriot

My Jeep drives very smooth even at high speeds and is very comfortable to drive for long periods of time. The stereo system works great and the trunk is the perfect size for traveling long distances.

- Allan A

Very reliable, space can cause issue for parents.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I mostly love my Jeep Patriot, it is a smooth ride and has been very reliable for the last 5+ years. However the backseat and trunk could certainly be bigger. It wasn't an issue until I had a baby.

- Samantha M

It is great in the snow and ice. i never get stuck and it gets me where I need to go. I feel safe driving this vehicle.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love the way my Jeep handles for an SUV..I do not like how cramped the back seat it....The leg room in the back seat is my biggest complaint. Other than that I am very pleased with the vehicle.

- Lynne K

Highlighting the interior - it's not anything fancy and more commonly seen as bare bones. If the interior doesn't worry you then you will enjoy the Patriot

2012 Jeep Patriot

Not as comfortable as a Grand Cherokee, but it's reliable and so far haven't had a problem with my 2012 Patriot. If anyone is looking for a affordable, reliable option then consider the Patriot.

- Wood O

Great, reliable small SUV

2012 Jeep Patriot

Great gas mileage for a small SUV, four wheel drive works good, better in snow than any truck or other offroad car I've ever had. I use my jeep to drive on the beach and I've never had problems.

- Jeremy G

It's a great vehicle to use in the snow and mountains!

2012 Jeep Patriot

My Jeep Patriot is great. It's easy to change it in to 4WD when needed. It gets ok gas mileage (wish it could a little better). The seats lay down which gives it a lot of stowing space.

- tracy b

It is worth the investment.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I have always love the Jeep name. When we had the chance to purchase one we did. I have no complaints at all with our decision to buy. If given the chance will absolutely do it again!

- Karen G

It is a very handy car to have. It's great to tow things. It is very stylish and comes in great colors.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I love my jeep but to fix it is very expensive. And with the patriot it is very hard to find transmission. It is very comfortable ride and doesn't cost a lot to fill up the gas tank.

- Michele D

It is a little loud to drive but that is because it is a 4WD vehicle.

2012 Jeep Patriot

My Jeep patriot has been reliable to drive with minimal issues. It has comfortable seats and is great on gas mileage for when I travel. I have had no issues out of my Jeep patriot.

- Lincoln H

it is very good on the road in winter driving conditions.

2012 Jeep Patriot

i like the gas mileage we get in this jeep. I like the way that it handles on and off the road,. We like the roomy inside of this jeep because it allows us to pack what we need.

- joseph v

Reliable and comfortable.

2012 Jeep Patriot

My patriot is a reliable vehicle. In 100000 miles of driving, it has never required more than routine maintenance, and is very comfortable as well as fuel efficient for an SUV.

- Josh W

This is a very good family SUV.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Very spacious, easy to put a car seat in and out and also get your children out of the car. If the transmission overheating light comes on then the fluid needs to be changed.

- Lindsey E

It doesn't get as good of gas mileage as I thought it would.

2012 Jeep Patriot

I really like the added features of the heated seats, the defrosting side mirrors, the light up cup holders and most of all, the outlet provided in the front of the vehicle.

- Jackie M

Jeep Patriot - great car for all.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Great car for all weather, especially in the snow. Minimal upkeep however I did have to replace oil pan and water pump. Seats fold down for optimal storage for long trips.

My car is very comfortable to drive or sit in passenger seat. It has all the bells and whistles, Sirius, MP3 player, CD player, navigation, automatic windows and mirrors,

Love the way it handles, and lots of room.

- Bobbie M

A lot of space and it's a nice looking jeep

- Mary R

Compact crossover SUV 4wd. Excellent performance, and value for money.

The back seats fold down to expand space if needed

2012 Jeep Patriot

- Marianna B

It does have an option to turn on 4x4, it's good that it doesn't have to be turned on all the time.

2012 Jeep Patriot

It's an OK car, it does no have any bells and whistle. It spends more gas than advertised. I would not buy again, nothing extraordinary about it.

- Gerardo L

The most important thing to know about this car is that it gets great gas mileage.

Never had any issues with my Jeep. Always been very reliable. It doesn't have 4wd, automatic windows or locks. But besides that a great vehicle.

I like that all you have to do is pull a lever for four wheel drive. No stopping to engage four wheel.

2012 Jeep Patriot

Jeep patriot is a nice vehicle. Handles well. Not the most comfortable seats but not what I was really looking for, over all a nice vehicle.

- Linda E

That the drive train goes or rather quickly.
