Impressive Review of 2009 Patriot

|Scott Burgess from The Detroit News is singing the praises of the 2009 Jeep Patriot in a review published this morning:|
The 2009 compact SUV, which is really a crossover built on the same platform as the Jeep Compass and Dodge Caliber, has been upgraded throughout. This wasn't a mid-cycle refresh, it was an apology.
Little details make a design, and the previous Patriot was still a first draft.
Now, it's vastly improved. Chrome accents are now around the dash vents, softer armrests are on the overhauled door panel and illuminated cup holders make the trip a little more bearable.
Really, you don't know what you're missing inside a Patriot until you park a 2008 model next to a 2009. Then when you look inside, you say things like, "wow, the '08 really bites."
Check out the entire review and let me know if you think he's laying it on a little thick or if the Patriot might be all that Mr. Burgess is claiming.
