Good question! Your 2008 Jeep Patriot will need synthetic oil.
More specifically, it needs SAE 5W-20 full synthetic motor oil. This is a very common type of car oil and can be found at most auto retailers or mechanics. Synthetic oil is specially made to enhance your engine’s performance and to last longer than traditional oil.
