My Gorgeous Black Patriot by Em, Michigan on 04/12/2012. Trim: 2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude FWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I love the styling of the exterior and the layout of the interior; it feels like a lot of SUV for very little money. I love the lighted cup holders, heated front seats, reclining back seats, cargo room, smooth ride and the fact that I finally own something with the Jeep name on it!
Cons: The get up and go seems to take a little longer than other vehicles. The CVT feels like it wants to go but is just pulling to much weight to take off. This is offset by the fact that once it gets going, it certainly goes! Before purchasing, I read a lot of reviews and noticed a theme with a lot of Patriot owners - engine drone. It definitely has that, but you don't notice it when the radio is on, and you don't care, because the vehicle is just too cool.
Overall review: Overall, this is a great vehicle if you're looking to get into the Jeep family without spending a ton of dough. It's perfect for communting and weekend trips, or simply an afternoon shopping trip. The Patriot rides smoothly, cruises beautifully, looks like a more expensive vehicle than it really is, and offers incredible room and comfort inside. I can't imagine anyone regretting their purchase of this wonderful machine!
