New to Patriot

Just bought a 08 Patriot 81K miles 4 banger 2WD 5peed stick. $6000 cash. Seems to run real good. Front wheel drive. anything I need to check out? to keep it running good?

P.S. If you loose your extra chip or fob key no need to go to dealer. Ace Hardware is now making those type of keys! I just paid for another Chip Key just cost me $69 bux + Tax!

Front end ball joints, common fail point.

With 81k surely they've been replaced already

look up moog ball joints for the patriot. it depends on what parts you want to replace, just the ball joint, or the whole control arm.
