Looking to buy a Patriot Limited

Well, I sold my gas guzzler 96 Grand Cherokee Limited V8. It was a solid Jeep and still great on the inside, but I just drive to many miles to afford the gas.

So.....now my attention has been caught by the Patriot. I'm interested in a Limited version and with manual tranny. Do they have fulltime AWD like a Subaru? Also, is there a way to get the navigation and upgraded stereo, but switch the Sirius radio and add in XM radio?

Anyone have the limited? Likes, dislikes? Issues? Gas mileage you are seeing?

Thanks!

In response to the Fulltime AWD Subaru, no the Jeep Compass/Patriot is not the same type of AWD system. For the MK's, it's more of a reactive response (on demand) to any wheel spin being experienced, with an option to lock the 4WD to certain speeds. For the Subaru, it is more intuitive (full time) as it is controlled within the drive train - by essentially a limited slip diff (man trans), and TCU for auto trans. Power is controlled based on how the vehicle is being driven, or the conditions it is being driven in.
