The jeep patriot is an extremely comfortable car.

I love my jeep patriot, I have had it for 2 years now and have only accumulated 15,000 miles. Therefore, I can see this car going a long way with me. My vehicle is a great size for me. It is not too big and not too small. It may be compact, but it is better than a sedan or a big SUV. There are not any problems I have come across, but the performance is great. The seats are leather, which I prefer because of occasional spills and mishaps. The back seats are adjustable for your liking. One of the best features is the rear view camera. This helps me see everything behind me when I am backing up. I reliable very much on my car because I use it to get everywhere. It is great in the snow and rain. The tires are great, I have not had to replace them or get them repaired. The whole vehicles drives smoothly. I have heard other people say the car does make noise, but it does not affect me. On the gas, the tank is decent and I do not have to make gas runs that often. Maybe once every other week I fill it up. Before I got this jeep, it was a dream of mine to get one. I did not care which model it was, but I had my eyes on a wrangler. At the dealership, I test drove both and I ended up falling in love with the patriot. It provides more space in the rear and all around. Today, I am still in love with this car and it is one of my bestest friends.

Great car at an affordable price.

My 2016 Jeep Patriot is a great little SUV, it offers lots of the extras I was looking for at a more conservative price than some of the high end luxury SUVs. I get about 28 mpg on interstate driving which I do a lot of. I have the conveniences of heated seats, Bluetooth . Remote start, 4WD, fog lights, roomy seating for 4 adults and lots of hatch trunk room. I live in the mountains and we experience colder temperatures often so the 4WD and remote start alone were great selling points for me. The 2016 Jeep Patriot maneuvers well on our mountainous curvy roads and will be an ideal starter car for my 15 year old daughter who is just learning to drive. No blind spots which will make it easy for her to learn to drive. I have read reports of premature transmission problems but have not had any problems with mine so far. I have also read mixed safety crash reports on the 2016 Jeep Patriot but again have not yet experienced any difficulty with the handling of the vehicle. I would highly recommend this car to my friends and family and would consider buying another on my next vehicle purchase. It is an ideal vehicle for the local terrain of where I live and most importantly a very affordable small SUV.

We really enjoy the ease of the ride.

I bought this car because I needed a reliable car to get me to and from school as well as a car safe enough to put our children in. We looked at several options and really love Jeeps but because of our age and financial difficulties we couldn't afford a wrangler or the renegade so the patriot was a perfect choice considering it�s a more affordable car to be a newer make of the Jeep family. This car drives easy and comfortable. It�s bigger than a 4dr car but smaller than most SUV types so we were very happy to have the best of both worlds. It's easy to get the kids in and out the their seats as you don't have to crawl up the side of the vehicle to unbuckle them and there is plenty of space for two car seats and even a smaller child to fit in the back. The interior is nice and plenty of space and options for people of different likings. The only problem I have with our Jeep is that it is 4wd and because we don�t live in an area that requires us to use it from time to time, we spend quite a bit in gas. We probably spend about 40 as it sucks it right out. I would recommend this car to anyone who asks me about it. Couldn't of been more satisfied.
