IT'S a BOX!

Remember, It's Still A Jeep! — Great SUV! BUT IT'S STILL A JEEP! This luxury SUV offers a smooth ride until you hit a bump and then.. it transforms itself into a JEEP! All Jeep characteristics are retained in this vehicle! I was in Montreal and drove back to Andover, MA in an ice storm and was one of the few vehicles that didn't slide! Ice was 2" thick on the vehicle and I drove at posted speeds, no slip at all!

Loaded Suv — Love the luxury feeling of the SUV mid size. 3rd seating always came in handy along with that all the rear seats can lay down. Always had enough power plugs to charge cell phones and other devices. Gas mileage is good for an SUV.

Nice Ride Overall — This is the Cadillac of jeeps with a great interior, good handling, wonderful sound system, 3rd row seating, DVD, and so many other great features. It's not your typical Jeep but it has the capability of taking off road if need be.

If You Haven't Driven A Commander, You're Missing Out. — Great acceleration for a Big SUV with a V6. The 3.7L in Jeeps has really impressed me. I have the 3rd Row with 3 Sunroofs and rear Air Control and I have to say I love the space and design. The theatre seating is great when traveling with friends. Its great for water-fording, off-roading and occasionally jumping a curb without ever harming the undercarriage.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Quality Car With Good Size And Power To Handle All Types Of Roads And In All Conditions — I like the size and comfort in the SUV, with it's 7 passenger seating for room and comfort for everyone. It has good power and drive to handle all conditions. It handles well on the road, although a little stiff, you can feel the bumps. It is not great on gas, but is fair for its size.

Looks Cool Bad Angles To See. Lots Of Blind Spots — It looks like a really cool car, but the engineers did not think about the driver or passenger. It is uncomfy and hard to drive. No t a fun car to drive. rather drive a corvette or another sports car. Lots of blind spots.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
