Jeep Patriot Review – Vehicle Voice

Vehicle Voice reviews the 2007 Jeep Patriot and writes – ‘While Patriot easily beats its segment off-road, on-road it isn’t a star. Interior noise was reasonably low, allowing for conversation amongst four of us with relative ease. We also took a Honda CR-V, available as a competitive comparison, out for a quick spin; the CR-V’s engine and transmission were notably louder and rougher. Patriot’s 172HP is competitive by the numbers, but merely adequate. The engine provides plenty of power for off-road driving, where slow speeds and patience prevail. But the available power on-road and through some elevations is not impressive. On-road, we had a five-speed manual transmission, which allows for more involvement and rewards you with satisfying shift feel.’
