Bought a Patriot

So we finally bought a Patriot. Took our time making sure we liked it, see my other posts. It is a 2013, with the FDI 4 wheel drive, and the Latitude package. We had a hard time finding one with FDI in our area, the dealer brought one in from another dealer a couple of hours away. We basically bought it without seeing the actual car, it is an Oscar/Mike edition, and very nice, but we had the dealer remove the Oscar/Mike stickers on the hood, just too much for my wife, its her car. I was thinking about waiting for the 6 speed trans, but decided I actually like the CVT, and I always feel unsure about new transmission offerings the first year or 2. We like the car, and are hoping for several years of trouble free service. Thanks to all of you who provided information, it helped us decide what we wanted.

Congrats! Tough to beat the MK's combination of utility, smooth ride, and low cost of ownership.

I dont have pictures, but if you go to this link, this is exactly what it looks like, including the color. It is my wifes car, and she had the dealer remove the sticker on the hood.

The true blue? Not bad. And good call on the sticker, it's a bit much IMO. Maybe if it was a camo color of some kind ... but most of the color choices aren't.

Again, congrats man!
