Current XJ Owner Looking to get a MK
I am currently a 2001 XJ owner, but it's finally starting to give me major issues at 236K. With that, I'm looking into getting a used Jeep Patriot. What would be the best year to look for? How well do they handle with high mileage? Looking for a daily driver, reliable, etc. since my XJ isn't so reliable as a DD any longer...any info would be greatly appreciated!!!
