2007 Jeep Commander Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Excellent interior design with a very comfortable ride. It quickly and easily converts from 5 to 7 passenger seating. The 4.7L V8 flex-fuel has plenty of power, and having the flex fuel option can help your pocketbook at the gas station. The only negatives to the vehicle are that the gas mileage drops about 25% (not just a mile or two per gallon but the highway mileage drops from 20 to 15!) and one annoying design flaw is that it is easy to strike the key with your knee which actually turns the vehicle off. On a recent trip I actually did this twice. The jeep is as good off road as any Jeep I've owned and the Quadratrac II works beautifully.
Our kids preferred this vehicle over the Trailblazer and Explorer because of the stadium seating. They still love it.
Reposition the key on the dash so that it can't be struck by your knee.
