Hey I have a 2011 Jeep Patriot with about 77,000 miles on it. I’m getting ready to drive back to college in Alabama from Florida . A 636 mile journey to be exact. What do I need to check out before I leave to see if my car can handle the journey ?

Change the oil and check fluids and tire pressure.

If it has a CVT and hasn't had transmission fluid and filters changed yet I'd look into to getting it done.
Ditto Sandstone. Don't just look into getting it done, get it done, and soon. CVTs are a potential weak point if it doesn't get frequent fluid & filter changes (every 50,000 miles). Do that and it will serve you well.(y)

Me, I would also check to see how well the wipers work, maybe need new wiper blades 🤔 check the windshield washer fluid, gonna be some bugs hitting the windshield during your adventure 👍
