Hey all! I’m buying a used 2014 Jeep Patriot from a buddy of my dads in December. I’m very excited to become a member of the Jeep Patriot community! I’ve been reading up a lot on some of these forums but I was wondering if there’s any general knowledge/advice for care and maintenance on ‘em that is good to know.

Welcome!

Keep watch for sub-frame/cross-member rust; if you see any you might want to use fluid film or some type of rust prevention.

And be sure to keep up on transmission fluid and filter (if applicable) changes whether you have the CVT, 5 speed manual, or the 6 speed AT.

Sandstone pretty well cued you in on the weak points. Keep an eye on your tires, too. Some owners complain of premature front-end problems, but mine have been fine. I hope you enjoy your Patriot.

"If" you come across a problem fix it or get it fix asap/stay up on the fluids/ rotate-balance tires every 5000 miles/ everything they mention above with tranny

Great luck
