I bought my 2010 Jeep Commander Limited, 5.7 liter hemi V8, 3 weeks ago. It is extremely comfortable, with a silky smooth ride. While the outside is boxy, the interior is sweet. Love all the bells and whistles, too. My only unpleasant shock is the gas mileage. I'm averaging between 10-12 in town and 15-17 on the highway (and that's without towing anything!). (Makes me wonder if I've got it stuck in 2nd gear or on some snow traction setting?) Since the sticker promised 13/19, it's a bit disappointing, especially after trading up from a Grand Cherokee. Of course, maybe the new GC's 5.7 liter hemi is averaging the same. Anyone know?
Discontinued For A Reason!
I have a 2010 Jeep Commander Sport 4x4 5.7l with leather, Nav, sun roofs, backup camera, every option you can get on a Sport. The transmission has had 5 problems with leaks at only 13000 miles. The 4x4 system works good, so good it gives you a false sense of confidence in the snow. You don't have any problem going but stopping is the issue. You don't realize how slick it really is until you have to stop. Power steering system started leaking at 946 miles and after 2 trips to the dealer they seemed to fix it. The HEMI is very powerful and fast. I bought it as a family vehicle to tow our boat but its been broke so many times due to transmission problems we haven't been able to use it. Have contacted and Chrysler and they view seems to be we got your money deal with it. Buy on you may get lucky or we can talk about it in the service dept waiting room since they wont give rental cars.
Got a great buy on the exact Jeep I wanted. Commanders are now discontinued but there are still some new ones out there for big discounts for a first rate off road capable vehicle. Would I like perhaps a slightly larger interior or better gas mileage? Sure, but thats about it as far as "weak" points. So far mine has been reliable.
All time four wheel drive, four wheel disk brakes,leather seating, computerized odometer which can register mileage for two trip, three sunroofs (large one for fronts row seats and two small for 2nd row passengers), second and third row fold down seats, adjustable heated front row seats and mirrors, rear flip open window, six cd disk player, too many features to list. This is a luxury model and well worth the price. It can accommodate my father's wheel chair and groceries for two families. A well kept secret of 4X4's!
