^ in regards to the Patriots reliability.. it shared a platform with the Caliber and the old Compass. If you’ll check your facts again you’ll see these three were riddled with a lot of issues and most were manufactured defects with no solution. My friends Caliber gets 18 mpg and sounds like it’s falling apart with only 90,000 miles. At least FCA is trying to be better than Daimler Chrysler and improving their vehicles. From what I’ve seen if the nine speed is truly this terrible why are multiple manufacturers using it? To be fair to the Patriot it was okay all things considered but let’s keep the rose colored glasses off.
