But you weren't the original owner. Did you have an aftermarket warranty? From what I've heard the extended warrant is only for the original owner.I bought a used 2009, FWD, 5 speed and with 114,000 miles . . . The front subframe was replaced due to the rust issue several years but was under warranty.
LOL, I call ours the Jeepster too! But I am a T-Rex fan too, so it's fitting. You have the CV trans?I bought mine because I was recently promoted to manager and was losing my company van. My new salary package came with a vehicle allowance so I wanted something I could buy with that. I wanted a Jeep...could not afford a Wrangler and of course a Gladiator was right out. Came across this beautiful snow white 2011 Latitude 4x4 for a sweet price and grabbed it. Only complaint so far is the whiney gearbox after driving on the freeway and the fact that no cool Jeep parts were ever made for the Patriot...but I'll have the tranny cooler put in when they force the Smittybilt tubular bumper down its throat in a few weeks and life should be good! Put the Curt class III hitch on it so my daughter and I can haul our mountain bikes to the trails, she loves it...we call it the Jeepster lol

Yes it is the CVT. When they put the trans cooler in they will replace all filters and fluid as well...I have no clue when it was last done so now I will. Runs strong though, just a faint whine after a long freeway drive.LOL, I call ours the Jeepster too! But I am a T-Rex fan too, so it's fitting. You have the CV trans?
Welcome! Please visit the newbie threads and introduce yourself to the others. Great gang we've got here!Hi from europe, owned a Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, RRover and merc G-wagen before.
Needed something for dirtroads and my big Dane.
The Patriot is a light car and mileage is good in compearence to the ones I had before.
In my country prices of petrol and road tax are killing.
The Patriot is a 2013 4wd 2,4 cvt and was an educated decision to make.
My son is a car mechanic and I restore cars so I can fix the Jeep myself
