I am overall happy with my purchase of the Jeep Commander. My only dislike is their isn't enough cargo room in the very back when the third row seat is up. So if you have a car full of kids, like i do most days, it doesn't leave any room for anything else. I am happy with the looks and the performance of this vehicle. It holds nothing back when it comes to power and i think that is why i like it sooo much :)
My Rocky Mountain Edition of the 2007 Commander has been a very good choice. The fuel mileage has been less than desired for a mid-sized SUV, but expected with the full time four wheel drive.
The ride is exceptional and I believe it to be a better handler than a Ford Explorer. Very quiet interior and high end stereo are big pluses on long drives. There are not many storage spaces and the rear cargo area with the 3rd row seat is minimal. I normally don't use the 3rd row, but if you need 3 rows and baggage area, this isn't a good match. I really like the versatility of the 3rd row and the raised rear seats are a plus for kids. The Commander is more roomy than the Grand Cherokee and rides and handles much the same.
One of my favorite vehicles I have owned.
It has been a good value since it is a nice roomy vehicle with over 110k and I paid under 30k for it. Roomy, spacious, car like ride and handling. I have taken good care of the car (body, interior, mechanically) and has a lot more life left in it. Has 4.7 V8 and wish I would have had the Hemi engine. I have done some heavy towing over he years and recently had to replace engine due to broken connecting rod. Good for another 100k now.
