2010 Jeep Patriot Limited 4x4

Jeep recently unveiled the nicely revised 2011 Patriot, so this is our last go-round in the outgoing 2010 model, which has harder armrests, an old steering wheel, a stale exterior appearance, and ride and handling quality that are better suited to a Jeep Wrangler than a Jeep that's more on-road biased. I have high hopes for the '11 model, so at least this late experience in a '10 model will give me a better frame of reference for my first drive in that vehicle. In the meantime, I'm with Evan: I'd take a Kia Sportage over this Patriot any day of the week.

I don't see the point of testing the 2010. The 2011s are already out there. You seriously had space to fill didn't you?
Horrible reliability, garbage gas mileage, 0 resale value, set it on fire & crush it.
Shoot it before it breeds.
