"The Commander is a great vehicle. We used this jeep for everything! We live in an area that get lots of snow and the jeep went through everything the New England weather had to offer. We ski every weekend and had no problem doing a 2 hour+ drive during a blizzard. Have recently revitalized the vehicle and expect the Commander to last 2 more years before I retire it."
"My Commander is a 07 limited with the 5.7 Hemi. I use it for winter travel and towing. Over the years I have owned a number of 4 X 4 SUVs starting with Scouts in the 60's. This is my first Jeep and it has been a joy to own. It has required nothing but basic maintenance. At Christmas we took a 4,000mi trip from Oregon to Michigan. We had plenty of bad weather and bad roads but the Commander handled it all without a whimper. Our gas mileage ranged from a high of twenty mpg to a low of 16. It is very quiet and comfortable even when driving as many as 14 hours a day. It tows my car trailer much better than my Ford F150 did and gets better mileage doing it. I wish they still made the Commander. I haven’t seen any SUV 4X4 that I would rather have."
"My 2007 Jeep Commander Limited with the Hemi has 81,000 mi of trouble free driving. It is comfortable, quiet, and a great tow rig. I use it to tow autos on an 18 foot car hauler and it handles it great. I just took a 4500 mi trip with it from Oregon to Michigan over Christmas and it performed flawlessly. I averaged 17mpg going east and 16.5 going west back to Oregon. We drove the speed limit which in several states was 80mph and were heavily loaded. We drove long days 14 t0 15 hours and it was very comfortable. More comfortable than many cars I have driven. It has great power for passing and the mountain passes. We used the four wheel drive several times and it has amazing traction in snow and on ice. I have owned several 4X4 Suv’s beginning in the 60’s with Scouts and it is amazing how far they have come. The Commander has every luxury feature you could want and many more features then luxury cars of just a few years ago. This Commander has been an outstanding vehicle."
"I have owned my 2009 JEEP COMMANDER for over a year now. I did not purchase this vehicle new but it was new to me. I love the way it drives and the space is more than I need for our family. I feel we are safe in this vehicle. It is a little frustrating having to bend down to see the traffic lights, however having that extra space between myself and the windshield is well worth it. I havent had any issues other than the usual maitenance. I will hold on to the my COMMANDER in hopes that they come out with another addition. By far my favorite vehicle. I have been reading all the negative comments and am truly surprised."
