  1. Interior
    Hi all. This is my very first post here. Actually my very first post on any car related forum. Anyway, I have a one month old 2016 Jeep Patriot and found something very disturbing under the dash this morning as I looked for where the OBD port was. I found what seems to be fairly substantial...
  2. Exterior
    Hi, I noticed above my passenger side rear wheel well the red paint was bubbling... Now a bubble has been chipped off ( the paint came off ) and there is a little spot of rust. There is more bubbling along the wheel well too that is cracked.. How much would it cost to get this fixed? Not only...

  8. Suspension and Tires
    I was one of the first to join here back in '07 when I got my new Patriot. I loved it, but the years haven't been so good to her, even though well cared for.... This week I had over $1200.00 in front end work... Suspension, ball joints, etc. I was told they see a lot of this on Patriots. Never...

    Anybody has rusting issues so far? Mine doesn't, it is only 3 months old but it is one of my main worry considering having my Patriot for as long as possible. What do you guys think about the Patriot rusting?
