Amazing car!!

Overall, amazing car! Reliable, efficient, and very comfortable. The only reason that I am giving this a four star is due to the blind spot on the driver side. But otherwise, definitely a five star car!!

Just purchased this car but I love it already !

This car is amazing, it has the Bluetooth radio, it has seat warmers, the interior is so nice! Who ever had the car before me took very good care of it. Gas is good. I will give you guys some updates in a few months.

One of the most reliable vehicles we have owned

Jeep has been extremely reliable with only one maintenance for alignment adjustment. NAVR report included, second owner and garaged nightly for over a year. Limited factory warranty still included. Seats family of four comfortably.

2017 Jeep Patriot Overview


The 2017 Jeep Patriot is a compact SUV that shares its wheelbase and many features with the Compass. This year, the 5-passenger Patriot remains largely unchanged.

Two trims are available: the Sport and Latitude.

The only substantial difference between the Patriot and the Compass is their exterior styling. While the Compass is more rounded like a modern crossover, the Patriot has a more rugged appearance with high sides and sharp angles at each corner. Front fog lights and 16-inch steel wheels come standard. Skid plates, tow hooks, and larger 17-inch aluminum wheels with all-terrain tires are optional.

There are two 4-cylinder engine options for the Patriot. Both the Sport and Latitude trims are powered by a standard 158-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that is mated to a 5-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Also available is a 172-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder paired with a 6-speed automatic or the CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard, but with the 2.4-liter equipped, two 4-wheel drive (4WD) systems are available. The more off-road-capable of the two 4WD systems is the Trail Rated 4WD system, which meets rigorous off-road standards for traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation, and ground clearance.

Inside, the Patriot’s cabin ranges from sparse to well-furnished to keep the base price very low. It is one of the few vehicles we can think of that still does not have air conditioning or power windows/locks as standard equipment. But it does offer standard satellite radio and Bluetooth calling (no audio), which is a little strange. Interior options include automatic climate control, leather upholstery, navigation, heated front seats, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen.

The Patriot earned a 4- out of 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include antilock brakes, six airbags, and electronic stability control. A rearview camera and automatic headlights are also available for added safety.
