2013 Jeep Patriot Limited 2.4 from Australia and New Zealand
Good value crossover SUV
Computer fault on the dashboard after 1 week.
Fantastic all rounder.
Great city SUV with ample space for a dog.
CVT transmission a bit sluggish on the motorway, but lots of power around the city.
Very spacious cabin and extras are worth the money, like heated seats and upgraded Bluetooth stereo.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The Patriot is Daimler's heritage to their ownership of Jeep. Mercedes ML SUVs were equipped with Jeep patented NV247. A first in Jeep's history, known to not to share their designs in traction. The top of the line Daimler serious off-roader, sports solid axle and multi-link suspension derived from the Grand Cherokee. They bought Chrysler, went away with Jeep's heritage, and left us with grocery getters.
The Mercedes G-Wagen was around well before they were in bed with Jeep. It is a more capable vehicle than any Jeep off the showroom floor.
