We were somewhat leery of buying a Chrysler product but were swayed by the Jeep's price, styling, and the standard third row seat in a mid-size SUV. GREAT vehicle - runs and looks like new with 72,000 miles. Both the wife and I agree this is the best car we've ever owned - and we're on our 10th.

Since we've been married 7 years, we have owned 3 Jeeps-2 Cherokee's and now our Commander. Jeep is absolutely one of the most reliable SUV's on the market, and the only SUV we'll drive. We traded our first Cherokee for a newer model, and then when needed extra seating, we upgraded to the '06 Commander. We love it...nothing bad to say whatsoever! We did have a couple small issues, the biggest being the starter needed replacing, as we found out alot of the 2006 models had problems with them, so we replaced it and haven't had a problem since! Had it 2 years now, and couldn't be happier, except with gas prices being so high and this thing is a gas guzzler. It does GREAT on the snow, mud...as SD winters make for awful driving conditions, I am so glad to have this to keep us safe. It drives like a dream, and we love the 2 extra seats in the way back for little ones. We have moon and sun roofs, and everyone loves it. Five stars for this Commander. Just wish they hadn't stopped making them. What a disappointment because we would have kept buying them...love the 7 seat option.

I bought this Commander to replace my aging 1999 Cherokee. This vehicle is everything I wanted-good ride, luxury ammenities, V8 power, and Jeep off road capability. The only shortcoming of this vehicle is storage space.

Most Reliable Car I've Owned

I have driven and owned jeeps for 29 years. I bought my first one as an extra car and it had 120 miles on it and drove like a champ. I then went to the Limited with the woody siding, but this reallly was a good looking truck. Loved the car but it had service issues and even through that, I traded that one in and bought another. Since that time, I have owned 8 jeeps which included every model Jeep made. I now drive a Commander and it is a long way from the Woody Grand Limited. I have 73,000 miles and that car has been impecable, totally reliable and I just put my first set of tires on the car and have only had very 2 small issues - like a motor fan for the air and a steering sensor go bad. The car is extremely comforable, drives great and is flexible as to whether I'm moving kids around or major home depot items. The fact that all the seats can go down at any one time really gives the car flexibility. I do agree that the windshield is prone to dings but the body seems to stand the test of time and looks great. It is one of the best looking and most reliable cars jeep has made and you really feel safe in it.

This vehicle performed extremely well in the recent Philadelphia Pa. double snow storms.I was the only driver on my block to NOT have to dig out of my parking space. I just wiped the snow off and just simply pulled out of the space.There must have been at least 25 inches on the ground. Did not have to put the vehicle in low range. All other drivers spent half the day digging their vehicles out. Not this vehicle!!

We were expecting our 3rd child and to sell my BMW. Got the Limited Hemi Commander and I love it! has all the room we need, to go grocery shopping I have to put down one of the the 3rd row seats so i guess that would be the only withdraw. I love the power,so easy to handle,stadium seating,soft leather. wouldn't trade it for another.

We test drove a lot of Suv's before settling for the 06 Commander. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the 4Runner but it was out of our budget and well there wasn't alot of room for 2 carseats. I love the comfort of the vehicle and there is plenty of room for me to pop to the back when they get fussy. My husband talked me into getting it because he liked the looks of it. Well done!
