Editor's Overview

The 2016 Patriot stakes its claim as being the least expensive new SUV you can buy, and a Jeep to boot. That's the appeal of this 2-row, 5-passenger sport-utility vehicle. But in just about every other aspect, Jeep's aging entry-level model lags rival compact-crossover SUVs such as the Honda CR-V and Subaru Forester.

This SUV is super reliable and perfect for a family.

My Jeep Patriot has been super reliable. It took a cross-country trip from Florida to Washington state packed to the brim in the back with luggage and a carrier on top packed full! The Patriot did a fantastic job through all weather. We went through Snoqualmie in it at the worst possible time due to extremely heavy snow and the Jeep made it through just fine. We are a family of 4 and it fits us just right. It is also amazing for grocery shopping days and days when we are packing for things like hiking or day trips. The only thing I would change about this vehicle is maybe a little more space and for it to be a 4-wheel drive vehicle.

Try not to bump your gear from drive to d1.

I drive a white 2016 Jeep patriot. I love the cloth seats because my living situation is in a very hot climate; it is nice getting into my car without my legs being burned by leather! Gas mileage is decent, but there are sensor issues with the passenger seatbelt (light will come on saying passenger is not buckled even if they), gas and oil. The Bluetooth has an inconsistent connection with my devices. When I am playing music it will not "allow remote" to control skipping tracks, volume, etc. . . Overall, I really do enjoy driving this vehicle.

- Peyton D

The most important thing about my car for others to know is it's actually pretty good on gas mileage and is so dependable.

So far my Jeep Patriot Sport has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. It's a sport so one of the features is that the majority of electronic things in modern day vehicles are manual. Such as; the locks on the doors you have to pull them up and push them down, the windows are crank windows and don't have automatic motors in them. But, I think it adds to the Jeep and the aesthetic rather than take away from it. I really thoroughly love my Jeep. I can say I won't be switching back to any other kind of vehicle after experiencing my Jeep.
