2008 Jeep Commander Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased used w/ 12k on the odo. So far, it's been great. The 4x4 works great and has already gotten me out of a bind. The interior is very comfortable and usable. The 3rd row does not get used much, but it's good to have just in case. I got a flat, and while changing the tire was straight forward, the steel wheel spare is way too heavy. I'm a big guy that works out 2-3 times a week, and had a hard time lifting it up on the studs. Can't find many other faults. Throttle response is on the slow side, need brighter headlights. Gas door needs to lock when car is locked. Better gas mileage, but it is the V8 and 4wd, so 15-16mpg overall is ok I guess.
4.7l v8 & 4wd. (despite the mpg) Comfortable leather seating Remote start. E85 capability if gas goes to $4 again. Jeep green color & towing package. - Reverse warning sensors.
Lighter spare tire. Lockable gas door (not the gas cap) The manual has an E85 warning of hesitation if temp is over 90deg. What's the point in central Texas in summer! Everyday is over 100.. - Hard to blow the horn, need to find the right spot on the steering wheel. Hood floppy? at highway speed.
