History
Replaced right ball joint/right lower arm twice!! Left ball joint/left lower arm once. Manual transmission shot after 125K, life time power train covered it (whew), and now I have leaking rear axle which is covered under power train warranty. I love my Riot. I just wished the parts were stronger. It doesn't make sense to have to replace the ball bearing/control arm twice in my Patriot, we're talking JEEP here!! I don't go off road. I do, however, use my 4x4 on gravel roads (some back roads are like that in WI) or in snow.

My Riot was ordered by my dealership when I shopped for a Patriot, they knew what I wanted - just the basic package with manual transmission. If I hadn't bought it, they would have tried to sell it on the lot. They should have asked me what color I wanted, but they didn't. ;) I was supposed to get a 2007 Patriot Sport (which the dealership placed an order for), but production stopped making 2007 at the time and we got 2008 which came with A/C as part of the basic package. Nice. Price was the same.
