2009 Jeep Commander Sport 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


Drove this car for one week during west coast trip.
Cannot recall that a car that was so unenjoyable to drive.

First ,
the acceleration of the base V6 engine is
very poor.
Merges on the crowded California highways are just downright scary with a car that accelerates like an overloaded tractor trailer.
200 horsepower is inadequate for such a big SUV.

Second, the car was not designed with visibility in mind.
Without passengers,
there are some large blind spots on both sides that make lane changes a harrowing experience.
With passengers,
you can forget about even being able to check if there are oncoming cars when you are looking to change lanes.

Best Features

There are some positives: Backup sensors; Third row seating

Worst Features

Improve visibility; Better engine / acceleration
