College Student Loves Jeep Patriot

I love the way the vehicle drives. It is smooth but also rises almost like a truck would. It is small and compact enough for me, a woman that is smaller in size, to get in and out of comfortably, while also still feeling substantial in size compared to the other cars on the road. I lease my car, which made the perks worth it. I get XM radio and I love the Bluetooth feature for taking calls and texts hands free, while I am also focused on the road. I consider myself to be a slow driver, always staying close below the speed limit and I really like the feel of the car while other, faster cars pass me up. The car is very easy to have serviced and because I am not required to use premium product, it is also easy on my wallet to service as well. The car is also very good on my dogs. The backseat windows give plenty of looking room for them and the easy to use door controls give me access to open the windows just enough without having to worry about whether they can jump out of them. Overall, I would highly recommend my car to another potential buyer. It is stylish, compact, user friendly, economical, and very affordable. This would be the perfect car for a high school student that is heading off to college.

2015 jeep patriot sport review.

Check engine light seems to be coming on quite often. After I took it in and had the service check it the gas cap needed to be changed out. I was told it happens when the cap just wears out, although the vehicle was only 2 years old. I have never had to have one replaced on any of my previous vehicles. The vehicle is great in 4 wheel drive in the snow. I have a very steep driveway and had no problems getting up even when it was covered in ice. The two things I am not happy with is that there does not seem to be enough power when speeding up to pass for instance, and stays at a high rpm for to long before winding down. As the vehicle is a 6 speed, but also automatic, it pops into manual position every so often when I have it in automatic! . So far it has been a very reliable vehicle, starts great even at -20. As far as comfort and features go, the driver's seat is a bit low for me (I am 5'5') and use a small pillow for extra height. There is plenty of room and the back seats fold forward. There are no extra or special features as bluetooth or seat adjustments, but I guess this was just the standard version which I didn't realize and was a bit disappointed for the price I paid.

Good basic SUV with some maintenance issues.

I really love Jeeps and the look of the Patriot (I'm partial to the more classic boxy looking SUVs) and it fit into my price range when I was looking to buy. Went with the latitude which includes some extra features that I really like and use consistently such as Bluetooth hands free connection and seat warmers. Couldn't live without either! Interior is nothing fancy but gets the job done on a basic level. Unfortunately I have had a few maintenance issues since purchasing - new set of brakes and rotors within the first 3 months of purchase. Dealer concluded they were defective from the start. Second set of new brakes and rotors required again 2 years later. For reference there is less than 25,000 miles on the car so it does not get beat up by any means. Also had a couple software issues with you connect. Overall happy with the Patriot. It serves the purpose I need it for but cannot solidly recommend based on fairly frequent inconvenient issues that I have encountered.
