Both front struts and rear shocks are leaking and need to be replaced. Never once took my Patriot off road or hauled anything. My wife drives this Jeep back and forth to work only, all highway route, very disappointed.
LOUD and ROUGH!!!!!!!!!! Replaced Front Wheel Bearing, Ball joint and Rear Hub assembly.
