    2008 Jeep Patriot Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Jeep Patriot

    • On-road, the Patriot is gratifyingly nimble, agility that's amplified by light but accurate steering.

      - Car and Driver
    • The Patriot is perhaps unique in offering its level of offroadability in a cute 'ute package and is simply more likeable than the Compass and Dodge Caliber (its other C-segment sibling), with more refined ride and handling and better body control (Chrysler says it's added improvements to those first two C models).

    What reviewers liked least about the Jeep Patriot

    • The steering is Novocain-numb, and we could turn the wheel several degrees off-center without any response.

      - Car and Driver
    • ...like its platform siblings, the Patriot is stuck with the DaimlerChrysler/Hyundai/Mitsubishi "global" 2.4-liter VVT four. It's not a bad engine, but not stellar, and in most versions it's mated to the CVT, which saps its off-the-line punch and sounds like a blender under heavy acceleration, especially when bouncing around an off-road course.

      - Motor Trend

    Best one-liner about the Jeep Patriot

    • ...like the Cherokee, the Patriot's dynamic virtues, all-around usefulness, and solid value make it hard to ignore.
