2010 4wd 5 speed manual trans. Over the last two and a half years have spent thousands on this thing. Didn't have a noticeable issue during the summer but then winter hit. Any and I mean any amount of covering on the road and the jeep was not drivable. Back end of the jeep was trying to pass up the front sliding uncontrollably side to side. Took it into my jeep dealer and they wouldn't allow it back on the road until the rear alignment was fixed. After spending a arm and a leg had new OEM upper control arms installed and alignment checked and a new set of tires was back on the road. Fast forward one year and noticed the back tires leaning in on the tops and the steel belts of my new tires sticking out on the insides of the tires. Back to the shop again and to no surprise the alignment was out of specks again. Now they had a new adjustable upper control arm, factory arms are fixed. After spending another arm and leg had both uppers replaced and rear alignment done again. At full adjustment the driver's side was within 5deg and passenger was dead on. Fast forward 6 months and again noticed driving issues with the rear of the jeep. Take it back into the shop and they now make an adjustable toe arm for the rear suspension as the factory are fixed. Working on saving up money for the latest fix I noticed that the tire was leaning in again and low and behold the steel belts hanging out of the inside of my new tires. Take it in today to have the adjustable tow arms installed and get a call that the lower control arms are shot causing the camber adjustment issues and extreme tire ware. Spending another arm and leg for parts and alignment and now waiting on yet another set of new tires. According to my shop he is now seeing numerous jeep Patriots with the rear alignments so far out of specks they are death traps rolling down the road add any amount of snow or slush and you can kiss your tail goodbye. Seems like after the rear suspensions wear and settle it throws the rear alignment severely out of specks and the factory suspension parts are all fixed and non adjustable. Spending thousands to replace the factory rear suspension with after market adjustable parts. I can't understand how there hasn't been a recall on this vehicle when the alignment gets so far out from normal suspension ware this vehicle becomes a death trap.
