The Jeep commander is an all around vehicle. Get groceries, vacation or off-road.
This is the first Jeep I have owned. I am very happy with it because it is beyond dependable. I have only had one major repair issue in 177, 000 miles. That was the water pump and I replaced it myself in an afternoon. It was the easiest repair on any vehicle I have ever worked on. I had to replace shocks and struts recently. It was a difficult job but not impossible. It has third row seating which was a requirement for my wife. It is a very comfortable vehicle for short trips to the store or for long vacations. The seats offer plenty of room for seven passengers. You can also fold the last row of seats flat for extra storage. My model has the 5. 7L Hemi so gas mileage in town is not very good but highway mpg is average and acceptable. This is to be expected out of a four wheel drive vehicle. The four wheel drive system is very strong. I have never been stuck even though I have been in situations where I would have been. It is the limited version so it has chrome everywhere exterior and interior. It has leather seats with warmers and adjustments in every direction. It has the tow package and tows any trailer like a dream. It has a luggage rack on the roof for extra storage. It drives and rides more like a sedan rather than the classic bump you around Jeep. I have worked on many other brands of vehicles but have found the Jeep to be easiest to work on. I will find it difficult to consider any other manufacturer in the future.
