Warranty

The Patriot comes with Jeep's basic limited three-year/36,000-mile warranty, which includes towing assistance. It also comes with Chrysler's new lifetime powertrain warranty.

Regarding the reliability outlook, A Car Place concludes, "As for durability over decades and abusability, the jury is still out, but other testers have beaten their Patriots pretty hard without finding weak spots."
