Consumer Reports Most and Least Reliable Small Crossovers
Third-Least Reliable Small Crossover: Jeep Patriot
MSRP: $16,395 to $26,395
Invoice: $16,252 to $25,388
Fuel Economy: 23 City / 30 Highway
And now we come to the poor performers, according to readers of Consumer Reports.
The third least-reliable small SUV or crossover sold in America in 2014 is the Jeep Patriot. Although the Patriot is better in 2014 than it has ever been before with the addition of a smooth new six-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the unloved CVT used in earlier models, its reliability apparently took a hit.
