Jeep Patriot VS Jeep Liberty
I have driven Jeep brand vehicles for the last 5 of my cars. I now drive a Patriot and this is the first Patriot I have had. Prior to this car I had 3 different Liberty cars. Each of these had one issue in common. On All 3 the windows power motor broke making the windows not stay in a closed position. I had to have this issue repaired in each of the Liberty's. Comparing the Patriot to the Liberty, I do prefer the Liberty as it sat up higher and as a short person I could see better. The Patriot drives nice, has good interior space. There is a 120v plug for charging that is real nice. There is many blind spots with the Patriot, the rubber seals around the doors will not stay in place. When the windows are down on the Patriot there is a loud thumping noise that is not pleasant to listen to, so I rarely drive with a window down. The hatch space is not to bad for groceries but a bit small for luggage when taking 4 or more people. Leg room in the back is cramped if there is someone setting in the front that needs to move the seat back. Being short I do like the ability to raise the seat. Overall It is an ok car but I don't think my next Jeep will be another Patriot.
