    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Hey everyone. First post here. I'm VERY seriously considering buying a 2011 Patriot. It's the 4x4 NORTH edition. It's a manual. I repeat, it is NOT a CVT. The transmission has no hard shifts and doesn't grind. It doesn't whine at 60mph (100 km/h.) It's fully loaded with the touchscreen and...
