Are Jeep Patriots reliable?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Aug 2018

Among a field of popular, but fairly bland, Japanese options the Jeep Patriot seems like an interesting choice for those who can't afford or fit the Grand Cherokee into their lives. Unfortunately Patriots aren't the most reliable vehicle compared to the sturdy Toyota RAV4 or Volkswagen Tiguan, which are the small SUVs I'd suggest investigating.

How to change oil on a Jeep Patriot?

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Jul 2018

Warm the engine up to operating temperature before parking the Jeep on a flat, stable, level ground. Open the bonnet and loosen the oil filler cap, then position a drain pan under the sump. Remove the sump plug to drain the oil, being extremely careful not to get hot oil on you as it can cause serious burns. Once the oil has fully drained replace the sump plug with a new washer. Remove the oil filter, remembering to be careful of hot oil, and fit a new filter after smearing the rubber o-ring on the new filter with some fresh oil. Hand-tighten the filter a quarter-turn past snug, then fill the engine with fresh oil as per the manufacturer's handbook.

How long do Jeep Patriots last?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Jul 2018

Between 10 minutes and 100 years. This answer depends entirely on how the car was looked after, including how it was used and driven, along with how often it was serviced. If it was babied (and serviced on time) you should expect at least five years or around 200,000km of faithful service from your Patriot, but each car will have led different lives so don't take that as gospel - have any potential purchase checked out by a specialist.

How do you open the hood of a Jeep Patriot?

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Jun 2018

The bonnet release for the Jeep Patriot is situated on the kick panel, near the pedals. Pull the lever marked with a drawing of a car with the bonnet raised, and it opens the first catch on the bonnet. Walk to the front of the car and feel for the second stage release. Pull this and lift the bonnet at the same time to open the bonnet fully.
