Pros

Reliable, solid car in all weather, for transporting kids, dogs, and things.  Rides great, lots of room, and with towing package and luggage rack, can take 6 people on long trips very comfortable.

Cons

Gas Mileage.

Solid, Clean And All Purpose Vehicle. — This Commander has been a great vehicle for our family of 4 for everything from short trips to the school, to vacations, to tailgating and for work purposes. It has been kept up very well, and is in good condition.

Pros

Great off road or in heavy snow.

Cons

Gas mileage isn't bad but not great either

8.5 Out Of 10 Stars — Build quality on the interior trim is a little cheesy. 4.7 v-8could use more bottom end torque. Only had one problem with the electrical connection for the transfer case shift motor. Fixed it myself thanks to some excellent over-the-phone coaching from my favorite Jeep delaer

Pros

I love the look of this Jeep! It performs so well in the Midwest winter season and has made many successful ski trips with my family! The rack on top is great for a Thule rocket box and looks very sporty! Goes down the highway smoothly and rear heat and air is a great add on! The third row of seats comes in handy for extra riders.

Cons

I would drive my Jeep forever if it wasn't for the poor gas mileage. I have the V8 so performance is great but the tradeoff is big bucks at the gas station. The back seating is not ideal for long legs, and with the head rests up, visibility is poor.

Looks And Performance Are Great, Gas Mileage Is A Dissappointment. — Jeep Commander is a sporty looking vehicle with unique features and lots of power in the V8. Tradeoff is poor gas mileage and less than ideal leg room in the back seat. The third row is realistically only going to be comfortable for younger children.

Cons

Not great mileage, occasional performance issues

Love My Jeep — I LOVE my Commander, and love being a Jeep Girl. The commander is a big truck, so be prepared to really "climb in" - or "climb up" to be more specific. This does mean you're sitting pretty on the highway though, with a very good view of the road and the traffic around you. My one issue with performance is an occasional lack in quick pickup - its very finicky about where your foot is on the pedal when you stomp on the pedal. If you're not positioned in the middle of the pedal, you'll have a delay in engine performance. This is with the six cyl. engine, not the hemi.

Great Value — We like the fact that this has all the bells and whistles one would want in a rugged SUV type vehicle. It has a very comfortable ride, but you pay for it in gas mileage around town. On the highway, it gets close to 19 mpg.

Pros

Plenty of space for the family. The convenience of third row seating. Has been reliable and has not cost me a lot of money to maintain the vehicle.

Cons

Virtually no cargo space when the third row of seats are in use, which is a big problem if traveling far distances. Fuel economy not so great. 16 mpg city/17 mpg highway.

Decent Family Car — I have the basic Jeep Commander, with rear wheel drive only, not 4WD. I think this has actually been a good thing, and the vehicle handles very nicely in the snow. I have 115K miles on it & have had virtually no repairs done to the vehicle. However there are some future things that will need to be done. I've been told the rims need to be replaced & my a/c needs repair. Other than that this car has been very reliable. No issues, no breaking down, no major repairs & has been a nice ride for the 5 years I've had it.

Incredible power and classic jeep styling, fun to drive especially in the mountains.

Hemi engine requires more fuel than your average car, however not seeing too much difference in fuel economy from my Audi Q7.

Jeep 4 Life — Love everything about this jeep - 4th jeep and by far my favorite. Fun to drive, always ready for any occasion, very versatile - you can haul/tow/carpool etc. just as much a family car as it is a working car. zero issues, only fun.

Awesome! — Great SUV. Great On or Off road. When the weather is bad... you can count on this SUV to get you where you are going. Awesome Jeep. Best of the best. Wish Jeep would bring them back with another foot or so of cargo space.

It handles very well in the winter.

Cons

Would be nice if it had a little better gas mileage but the handling and drive ability makes up for that.

One Of The Nicer Suv's That I Have Owned. — Very nice vehicle to drive and winter driving makes you feel like you can go through anything. It handles very well and it feels like it has a larger stance than it actually does. The rear seating is easy to move around and transform into a flat surface to haul larger items.
