Looking at buying 2007 Patriot

Welcome Rod,

I have a WK2 and just came over to the Patriot section with the same concern. My daughter is interested in buying a 2012 Patriot with auto and we have been seeing quite a few CVT complaints as well. I don't have an answer for you but since it's your brother's and he hasn't had any problems you are probably OK. Good luck.

Re: Looking at buying 2007 Patriot

I bought it, not starting out to good. Had to replace front lower ball joints. I did it myself so the expense was not that bad (Moog off Amazon $62 with signing up for their credit card) but it was sort of a challenge. Also having the issue where if you top off the gas tank it will die at idle and cut in and out the first couple of miles. Filled up last night and did not top off and had no problems. Will need to fill up a couple more times before I feel that not topping off will take care of that issue. New brakes also but I guess it was time. CVT seems to hesitate on initial take off but do not notice it after she gets a few miles down the road. Fingers crossed (and a few prayers) on the CVT.
