2014 Jeep Patriot Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Jeep tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Patriot's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Jeep Patriot’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Jeep, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
