2006 Jeep Commander: 12 years later

We purchased this 2006 Jeep Commander 65th Anniversary Edition in April 2018 to use as a primary travel vehicle for our family. It's age means that most of the issues besides mechanical problems are worked out of it, and so far we have had no issues mechanically, though we anticipate a few over the winter. It is very reliable. The cabin is roomy enough, though as with many 3rd row SUVs, the second row loses some leg room to make accomodation for the third row's needs. The driver and passenger seats are great for long drives over several hours, and the second row is great for kids, thought it would become uncomfortable for an adult for any trip over 30 minutes. The third row is tight but works for occasional use or for small children, which is all we needed it for. The headrests are not adjustable in the second and third rows, meaning that they must be removed to accommodate car seats. The sunroof and skylights are fun features but definitely not necessary. The rear hatch door has a window that pops open, typical of a Jeep hatch window. Full time AWD and easy shifting for terrain needs make this a breeze to drive in inclement weather or rough terrain. The Commander is too large to take offroad like many Jeep models are made for but it is great for mountain snow and passenger hauling and I love it. The primary things MOPAR neglected to add to this, that put it decidedly behind the times even in 2006, were an auxiliary jack for the stereo and map pockets on the front seats. I also feel that the interior finish is low-grade.

2006 Jeep Commander is not the car to buy

My car is very durable, and is in great condition for how old it is. Although I do enjoy this car I would not recommend it. The reason I would not recommended this car is because it gets horrible gas mileage. This car gets 12 miles to the gallon and only about 250 miles when completely full. My job is a half an hour away commute and that leaves me filling up my tank more than once a week. This costs a huge amount of money and is not worth it when there are so many fuel efficient cars in the market. Another reason I would not get this car is because the air conditioning is not reliable. In the time I have had this car the air conditioning has broken and needed to be completely replaced four times which is very costly.

Awesome mountain vehicle: our jeep commander is the go-to for co mountains.

Our jeep commander is a great car for mountain driving, 4-wheeling and rough terrain. However, it is not great for in town 'daily driving' due to the bad gas mileage. Gas mileage averages 15 mpg. The car is reliable and comfortable. It has stadium seating which is great for large families. It fits 7 people pretty comfortably, however, if you have 7 people in the car there is very limited room for 'stuff'. The back seats fold down so you can load a lot of stuff inside for groceries, furniture, etc and even use it to camp out in. We have a custom trim and decals which is really classy and ads a fun creative touch. One negative is how boxy the exterior is. It is hard to see around when you are driving behind it.
