2015 Jeep Patriot Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
The Patriot, lightly updated for 2011, remained a mediocre vehicle overall. Handling is unimpressive and even the up-level engine that comes with all-wheel-drive versions feels sluggish and sounds noisy. The seats are second-rate and it's hard to find a good driving position. To its credit, the Patriot has an absorbent ride, well-suppressed road noise and mostly simple controls.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again.

Anonymous, MI (2015 Jeep Patriot)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
