2008 Jeep Commander Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Bought 2008 Commander Limited 4.7 as a "executive use" car never titled with 15,000 miles in Dec 08. Right away the mygig went dead, took two trips to fix, then sat antenna wiring fried and had to have headliner removed to repair. First trip on the highway noticed vibration at 70+ mph. Back to the dealership 3 times, finally had torque converter replaced, vibration not as bad but still there. Now dealership is closed due to Jeep's financial woes. If it is raining, don't let down the the front windows because water will flood in and forget trying to see a traffic signal with the near vertical front window. On the plus side, front seats are comfy and roomy, sound system is excellent.

Best Features

DVD system, rear air, sound systems, excellent brakes, solid feel to steering, great hazardous weather driving manners. Kids like theater seat and two mini-sunroofs in back. Remote start and tailgate features are nice adds. Backup warning saved me a dented bumper once already.

Worst Features

Fix the front driveline vibrations (there are a LOT of posts online with the same problem), fix the problem with water pouring in thru windows from rain puddling on roof. Improve mygig reliability. Auto-dimming headlights blind oncoming drivers before dimming so I don't even use them.
