2008 jeep commander limited edition great buy.

I own a silver 2008 jeep commander limited edition with towing package including. I bought it brand new off the sales floor at the dealership in 2009. I absolutely love my vehicle. It is able to fit up to seven passengers. It is has stadium style seating so everyone can see over the row in front of them. The interior is jet black, that includes the cloth seating, the floor carpeting and floor mats, and the trim. The console area and gear shift area are a mix of black and silver. I have had no problems with my vehicle in the last ten years. It is been very dependable, reliable, comfortable, and still looks great inside and out. There's been two recalls that were minor, one to reset the airbag and the second to change the key sensor, they were both same day fixes. Originally when I went to the dealership I had it in my mind that I was going to buy a minivan. I have five children plus my husband so we needed a seven passenger. When I walked into the sales floor, I saw the jeep and couldn't help but look at all it is features, the ac control in the rear seating area, the ability to fully lay down all the back seats, the rear glass window opener if needed instead of opening the full tailgate, the driver power seat, cruise control, mp3 connector, the second row in seat pull out drink holder, and spacious leg room for backseat passengers. I was able to get this vehicle at a steal of a price because it was an 08 and it was already 09, so they wanted it gone. This was the best but of a vehicle ever. I currently have over 150,000 miles on it and it drives beautifully.

Wonderful jeep with lots of space!

The jeep commander really runs smoothly and surprisingly has a quiet engine. The acceleration and braking system is very easy and is not too sensitive or need too much force. There is a lot of space in the back of the vehicle and the back row of seats lays down easily to make even more space. It is quite large, but is not difficult to maneuver on the road, in parking lots, or into the average size garage. The back lining is a hard plastic which makes it easy to clean and less likely to damage (in comparison to some jeep models that have a fabric back lining). Our large dog is very comfortable in the back and has enough space to look out the windows and walk around. The key for the vehicle is not a typical key and is quite expensive to replace or get duplicates of. It also has a DVD player so the back seats can watch movies. Due to the DVD player there are not many lights on the interior and can seem quite dark when entering the vehicle in an area that has limited lighting.

Jeep should not have discontinued the Commander

The performance and reliability of this vehicle has been great. However the mileage on this 4.6L engine has only been about 15.5 mpg... according to the on board computer. I also wish the driver side foot room was a little larger. Jeep replaced the hood, at no cost to me, due to finish flaws. Passengers seem to really enjoy the raised Vista seating. I really like the straight sides in the cargo area. It makes the appearance a little more boxy, which I like anyway, but adds to the cargo capacity. The extended warranty on the drive train gives a peace of mind.
