A fluid leak may be noted from the front struts and/or the vehicle may handle "rough" Our technicians tell us that replacing the leaking struts and installing a revised jounce bumper and dust shield should correct these concerns.Google+

Jeep Patriot Problem
Average Mileage: 70,200 mi (48,000 mi - 96,000 mi)
LOUD and ROUGH!!!!!!!!!! Replaced Front Wheel Bearing, Ball joint and Rear Hub assembly.
Visitor, 2008 Jeep Patriot, 48,000 mi
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.
