Hi, we have just agreed to a 2.4 2008 Patriot 4wd sport from our local dealer. We love the drive and amont of space in the boot. We do have a few questions though.

We tow a caravan (1200kg fulky loaded), I wanted to confirm the towing weight would be 1500kg?

Also we want to upgrade the factory fitted radio to one with bluetooth/phone connectivity, but I'm getting very confused with the 'single din' and 'double din'. Can anyone enlighten us on the difference.

Cheers guys

Welcome! I think your Caravan is way to heavy for a Patriot, even with the tow package. Presuming you have the CVT transmission, the CVT is something of a weak spot, particularly if you're going to stress it with that kind of weight. If you have the manual tranny, get used to using the lower gears.

We have the petrol in the manual gearbox. We have checked on a few towing sites and on parkers.co.uk and they confirm the braked tow weight of 1500kg
