I'm a Jeep guy now... Who knew?
May 24, 2018
I had always wanted a Commander since seeing it on 2006. Now that I have the '09 model, it was definitely worth the wait.
I'm not going to give you a super "CAR GUY" review--I'm just not that guy.
I WILL give you a regular "guy that needs a running car" review...
This Jeep is awesome. It's big enough to make you feel mean on the street, but not too big where you start looking like a xxxxxx. I love the design of it. I hate this "sporty" crap car manufacturers are moving towards these days. The inside is weirdly spacious too. As soon as you get in, you feel like you're sitting up high even though the truck isn't extremely tall. The seats are comfortable as heck. The windshield gives you a lot of viewing angles, but the visors can definitely become a nuisance. They're trash. I opted for the sport which doesn't have the third row. Honestly, if you don't have children, there's no need for it. Adults can't fit back there comfortably anyway. That gave me TONS of trunk space. The engine is good enough for me. It's a 3.7L V6. I'm not dragging on the highway so it's a winner in my book. The sound system is great(crisp and clear). If you like Jeeps, buy it. It's that simple. I used to be Ford fan boy.... until mine broke down(Ford Explorer XLT). I never thought I'd actually own a Jeep, and now that I do, my heart belongs to them.
