The 2008 model of the Jeep Patriot is an affordable and compact SUV. It is more suitable for its off-road drive than the highway. The biggest plus point is that it can be used as both a daily driving machine and an off-road SUV.
Like a typical Jeep, the 2008 Jeep Patriot has a 5-wheel manual transmission. It comes in two models: Limited and Sports. The base model doesn’t incorporate adjustable seats and memory mirrors, so the prices are lower.
The 2008 Jeep Patriot scores high on the safety standards. It has hydraulic brake assist, anti-lock disc brakes for four-wheels and traction control. The Electronic Stability Program is incorporated to deal with the slippery surfaces.
It is designed in a cage-like structure with knee bolsters, beams on side doors and supplemental air bags on the side. The beams help in transferring the shock from one side to the other in case of accidents.
