Hello!!
I do the jeep wave to every jeep I pass, no matter if I'm in the patriot or the grand... I get a wave back about 30% of the time. And it's usually from guys in wranglers. Girls never wave back..

Welcome Aboard!

As for that wave, some on here tried to get it started a few years ago, but it doesn't seem to be catching on. Since we own 2 red Patriots I at least try to wave at others in Jeep Patriots. Doesn't seem to be catching on either.

I think people buy Wranglers and Patriots for different reasons. Wrangler buyers buy Jeeps for toys -- the urban cowboy types. Its a statement, an identity, and they notice others seeking that same shared identity. Patriot buyers buy Jeeps for a purpose, whether it be as a grocery-getter, commuter car, snow-car, or for work and cargo space. There isn't really an identity that goes with it.

When I drive the Wrangler, women usually wave back, but less often than men. I'm thinking women are less apt to initiate the wave. I wonder if its related to women fearing that men are coming on to them. In a passing vehicle? Just a guess.

The general consensus outside this forum is that the Patriot is a tall wagon with a Jeep badge. The only people I end up waving at in Patriots are middle-aged women, who all give me weird looks of "I don't know you, why are you waving at me?"

Pride-of-ownership for our little toaster doesn't go far beyond the folks who frequent this forum.
