I had a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited first and when I finally had to start looking for a new car I chose the Jeep Commander. I have had it since April 2010 and have had not one problem with it. I drive all over the country in it, Long Island, NY to Orlando, FL etc. We are a Military family, so its my Husband and I, 2 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats when we move (which is a lot!) and it fits us comfortably. It's a smooth ride, performs AMAZING in the snow and on the beach and I feel safe having my family in it. I am upset they stopped production on these. I love it.
Drove this car for one week during west coast trip.
Cannot recall that a car that was so unenjoyable to drive.
the acceleration of the base V6 engine is
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.
there are some large blind spots on both sides that make lane changes a harrowing experience.
you can forget about even being able to check if there are oncoming cars when you are looking to change lanes.
Jeep rides very smoothly as if you were in a luxury vehicle. The front seats are comfortable and the back seats are not comfortable on long trips. Your legs in the backs seat tends to hurt because the seats are up too high. I like the theater seats for view but not for comfort. My brand new jeep broke down on me: 1st the cover underneath the front end of my jeep that covers the oil fell down, 2nd my water pump went out, 3rd my tensioner belt went out that is to only name a few. I had to take my vehicle back several times to the dealer. I am not satisfied, because I take long trips and I am afraid that my jeep may brake down. The positive side of my jeep it runs through the snow perfect.
