nori I can see a dramatic improvement on the steering wheel already compare to my 95 ZJ... very nice. I love that thickness.

this vehicle looks better than the pictures shown in the advertisement. I really like the shapes of the windows.

Jeep Guy 5 Really cool Patriot Amy. I can't wait to see more of these on the road.

drummajo3 Hey Amy, have you noticed that on your window sticker it says that you have power heated fold away mirrors but your mirrors are not heated? I purchased on on Feb. 21 and the window sticker said power heated fold away mirrors as does the jeep website, but when calling Chrysler to ask about it, they told me that it's not even an option on the Patriot... hence why the manual says nothing about heated mirrors.

josephmartins Welcome to the board Amy.

You only put 100 miles per month on your vehicles? Leases are usually not a good idea to begin with, and at that low a monthly mileage rate it means you're paying through the nose if you look at the $/mile cost of ownership.

Make sure you get your money's worth out of it.

And hopefully the local Jeep dealer isn't a pain in the butt when it comes time for warranty work since you didn't buy it locally from them. Dealerships tend to be territorial.

In any case, enjoy the new Jeep!

JPFreek1 Very nice Patriot, Amy. It's good to see someone so enthused about their new vehicle, and those Patriots sure are purty. Enjoy!

Gramps I had the windows down the other day when we hit 25 degrees! Ya, definitely ready for Spring!

amyinminnesota Great, thanks Gramps!
Sounds like a quick and easy fix to me.
Looking out of the window, I can see we won't be needing to roll the windows down for at least a month yet (damn snow!) but, as soon as the weather starts shaping up, I'll get it in to the local Jeep dealership for a fix.

Thanks again.

Also yes, it's 4x4/4-wheel drive.


It's just the rims...they look like PT Cruiser rims. I'm sorry! LOL

So your window...did you get it fixed? If so, what was wrong with it?
No offense taken, at least it was DC, better than being called an Aztec!

They had to take the door panel off and adjust the track, no big deal. I think that the actual shop time was about an hour. It got in late and had to stay over night. All finished by 8:30 the next morning. It's worked fine ever since.

Same problem with my "Cruiser" look alike.

Almost like it's not completely on track or something? Oh well....it's not the "let's drive with our windows down" season quite yet. If it's still acting up in a couple of months, we'll take it to a Jeep dealership to get looked at and/or fixed.

Other than that, I couldn't be happier with my Patriot!
Rides great, awesome stero, comfortable, great heater, great WARM seats, the list goes on. We got another 10" or so of snow, and it powers right through it. Our driveway was drifted in pretty bad this morning, and my husband was able to drive right through the big drifts (over a foot) with no problems at all.
