I've been waiting almost two years to buy a new Patriot! Now, the time is almost here! We're just waiting for our house re-fi to close. Hopefully, we'll hear on that this week.
Looking at a FWD Latitude in Blue or Copperhead. The copper would be my preference. Also thinking seriously about buying a manual, which I haven't driven in some time, but I've gotten the bug for a manual again since I've been driving my Civic. Bought an EX-L which is not available with a manual, but I wish it had one. Thus, the bug. I've read good things about the Jeep manual tranny. However, finding one here in the state of Michigan has been a bit of a task (just to try it to see if I will indeed like it). Finding one with the EQ I want on it has been even harder. Will have to drive up to Gaylord or over to Ionia or Brighton just to try it.
Anyway, I'm hoping we hear good news soon with a quick closing date, then I can go get serious with the dealer.
