2009 Jeep Patriot North 4wd 2.4 from North America
At 7000 km, water leak from rear dome light.
At 20000 km, rear caliper stuck, caliper, brake pads.
At 35000 km, rear caliper stuck, caliper, pads and rotor.
At 45000 km, bad noise from the transmission.
At 69000 km, ball joints, lateral arms, struts all gone.
At 85000 km, bad noise from the rear end.
Worst car I ever owned; the tranny started to make noise within 1 week of ownership, and the dealer refused to service it. Then the water leak lasted for 3 months until they could find the problem, refusing to pay for a new dome light and the headliner that was damaged.
Noise from rear end started at around 50000km; had to change rear struts, rear upper lateral arms, both toe links, had ball joint and lower control arms replaced in front. And it's not finished, it's still make noise. So far I have had about 70% of the suspension parts replaced; this is a real joke! Currently looking to get rid of it in a tradeoff!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
