Patriot owners need some input please..

Hello all my mother is looking at trading her new Escape (lemon) in for a new Patriot and asked me what I knew about Patriots, which is nothing !!! Just curious your overall thoughts good and bad or anything a potential owner needs to look out for....She is 67 and just needs something to run errands with, it needs to be good in the snow as well...

Thanks, Mike..

I'm a recent convert to the Patriot club. Been driving Jeeps for over 30 years starting with a CJ-5 and have owned just about every model.

My mother needed a new vehicle and I bought her a loaded 2007 Ltd. Patriot last week. The safety features and foul-weather ability is what drew me to it. Anyway, after spending a week with her Patriot and getting into all the reviews and input on it (including this site), I decided to get one for my family to use as a general all-around-town kind of vehicle.

My wife likes her Grand Cherokee better - which is fine by me. She likes more power than the Patriot can offer up.

Of course she does. I traded my 5.2L V8 Grand Cherokee for the Patriot. The torque definatly makes it feel like a cooler car but the Patriot is fully loaded for a lot less so I'm quite happy with my decision until I start making more (I'm 23 so I have plenty of time...)

We have 2 and love them. My husband bought his in December and already has almost 10K on it. Not a single issue.
Best bang for the buck-would recommend it to anyone.
