2006 Jeep Commander SUV 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Review

When I start my 2006 Jeep Commander and put it into drive or reverse and step on the gas its always hit or miss if the car is going to move. The engine will usually rev for a second and then finally go. Once it has starting moving in drive, every time it shifts from first to second there is a loud clicking noise. Took it to the dealership and they told me it has to get worse before they fix it. That doesn't sound right to me.

2006 Jeep Commander SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have wanted this car for 2 yrs and, two days after buying, rear ended another car. I feel confident in saying that I feel, if we were still driving my tiny cobalt, my daughter and i would have had several injuries. The gas mileage isn't beautiful, but the peace of mind knowing I am in a safe car outweighs this. The interior and exterior design are awesome. Even when this commander plays out on me, I will be shopping for another!


Best Features

2nd row skylights, heated seats, park assist, radio and speakers are awesome!


Worst Features

gas mileage.

Review

Put it this way,the brakes are the originals at 52,000 miles! Never had an alignment either. Normal maintenance based on schedule B (longer intervals) in the owner's manual. Average fuel economy is 16 mpg with a lift and 32 inch tires. I use this vehicle really hard during the summer with camping,towing and 4 wheeling. Drives and rides like new! I would highly recommend if your expectations are not unreasonable.


Best Features

4.7 V8,Tiptronic Style Tranny, Park Assist, Interior Comfort, Handling On and Off Road, Ruggedly Built


Worst Features

None. No kidding.
