This article can chew glass. If you want a ritzy vehicle then buy one. Most Patriot owners buy their vehicles for value and weather capabilities. My wife and I own two vehicles: a loaded up awd Durango for her/the kids/family trips and my bare bones Patriot. The Durango is much more vehicle, much better fit/finish and we love it. As we should - it cost double the Patriot. Meanwhile, my sport 4x4 Jeep gets me home every night no matter what the road conditions. It serves its purpose, and it serves it well.
