Car loves the Jeep Patriot

1 post in this topic

Two observations:

British magazines are by far the most critical, pithy, scathing of all automotive magazines.

Lots of people seem to hate new Sebring, Avenger, Patriot, Compass, etc etc

Following on the footsteps of decent reviews of the Sebring and Compass in Australian publications, CAR online has posted a very fair review (without the usual anti-American car sentiments usually dug up: see Clarkson, Jeremy) of the '07 Patriot.

It can be viewed here: http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/first_drive.p...=828&page=1

However, whilst flipping through some British magazines at Borders the other day, I noticed some fair, non-biased reviews of the new Avenger. Its handling disappoints and the VW-sourced diesel is too unrefined. The Avenger also doesn't offer a low enough sticker price, and its American charm is watered down by odd proportions and a lack of power.

I think, though, that the most pressing things for Cerberus to achieve are:

-the development of new engines that rival or best those of competitors

-a bigger focus on interior quality

The Avenger/Sebring may seem half-baked, but I'm sure they will be honed over time and eventually be replaced by far superior models once this is financially achievable.
