Going to pick up 08 Patriot today!
I just purchased a 2008 Patriot for my wife to replace our 2000 Focus Wagon. I put 139000 miles on the Focus, and I hope to get just as many on the Patriot. We drove a "D" package Patriot and we just didn't like the complete lack of features. We're new parents and the manual locking doors and lack of cruise control were just kind of weird. I could understand if I was buying a Chevy Aveo or something.
Here's a breakdown of the specs and the price I paid:
2008 Patriot 2WD CVT
Wheel and Tire package
$18,600 incl tax, title, etc- $1800 Trade in = $16,800 out the door.
'97 TJ SE - 2.5 AX5 NP231 - 167k
31x10.5x15 BFG AT's 2"BB
