- car parts used in a Jeep
Purchased As New
Bought this new in 07, every option except gps, even got the last of the life time drive train warranties, so I thought i will keep this vehicle for ever, Yeah the cvt transmission is noisy, not alot of power, but gas mileage is ok, unless you plan on pulling something, then the cvt shifts its ratio's down for power and you are driving around at 6m rpms, and your gas mileage is below 15mpg's, I could live with those limitations, but at 40M miles the Dodge Caliper underpinnings that this jeep is made of started to give out, since they were never desinged to be used in an SUV, First to go where the tie rod ends, then the the ball joints, then the bushings in the rear suspention assemby, then, and this is when i traded it in on a new Grand Cherokee overland, the contstant velocity joints where making noise, and where terminal. All of this added up to the reality that yes the engine and trasmission are quite bullet proof and from reasearch they expect both to go for 160m miles or more so they could afford to warranty the drive train for ever, but the cheap compact car parts in the steering and suspension systems were not nearly as durable. My patriot was bleeding money at 50M miles to the tune of $800 every 4-6 months on items which on any other suv would last at least 100M miles. So dont get one if you plan on keeping it, and sell or trade yours before 50M miles if you have one.
I have owned many jeeps in my lifetime and infact still do with my new GCH . Jeep makes awsome vehicles but this and the smaller such suv type jeeps are not one of them.
