My parents bought a Jeep Patriot.
Beyond that as a terrible decision, my step-dad thought he could tow very large pontoon boat with it, and get it in and out of the lake.
Before he could test this theory I pointed out that the boat alone, minus trailer and motor, exceeded the towing capacity of the Patriot by roughly 1000lb.
“But it’s a Jeep!” he said.
“It’s really not.”
Now he buys the neighbor a case of beer when he needs to borrow his pickup for boat duty.
