2007 Patriot 4x4 Ltd. w/FDII
The Patriot is a great all-around family vehicle. I've got other Jeeps, but my Patriot is my default choice for everything but heavy trail work (does the fire trails just fine).
The Patriot may not have much power, but it does not need it. Not as much power as my Grand Cherokee, but the Patriot would eat my Grand in the slalom. Everyone who drives my Patriot remarks on how well it rides and handles.
I've told this story before: I was out shopping for a vehicle for my mother. She decided she wanted the Patriot and I bought her one. In order to explain all the Patriot functions to her (Ltd. 4x4) I spent a lot of time with her vehicle learning everything. In the process, I discovered what a great vehicle the Patriot is - and ended up buying one for my family a week later.
