    Jeep Commander — It's quite agile for such a heavy car. I really like the solid feel. My only complaint is the visibility out of the back windows. This could easily have been sorted if the rear headrests could fold down or be removed. Other than that it handles well has superb grip.

    Pros: Its very powerful and quick for a 4X4

    Cons: rear visibility.

    06 Commander Limited — Performance - The HEMI is awesome!! Braking, handling and steering are all really good. All the options like NAV and ESP are really handy too. Build Quality - The Jeep is just over 2 years old. From new the supspension rattles like the front end is going to fall out of the vehicle in cold weather, the tail gate had a rust spot and now has two more around the liftgate handle to go with it. The DVD player rattles. The Jeep has also been in the shop every couple months for everything like the navigation quitting to the windows not rolling up, rattles, squeaks, power seats not working , air bag malfuntions, ESP malfunctions, tire pressure monitors failing, no starts, and heater/ac malfunctions. Not too impressive and a huge pain in the butt. It will be getting returned after the lease is up! Thank God! Cost of Ownership - Fuel economy is not that bad considering the amount of power the HEMI has, pretty much all of the repairs so far have been covered under warranty. Overall pretty good but I wouldn't want to own the Jeep with out warranty it could be really expensive. Also a drive train service is about 365 bucks so that is not too good especially when you add another 300 bucks for atune up. The 700 dollar touch after tax is too too expensive in my mind.

    Pros: Pro's  - Power, visibility, handling on all types of road conditions and terrain is awesome with the quadra trac 4.

    Cons: Con's - too many problems with everything, for the price I could have bought a Mercedes M class or BMW X series and I don't think I would have had all the reliability issues, and rattles, and rust, etc.

    Commander Quality — Performance - great as far as off road, SUV, people holder Build quality - no problems so far Appearance - what I like in an SUV - 1) not big and bulky 2) Handles like a car 3) Off road capable Cost of ownership - gas mileage is mid range - it's not the 60 mph like the Harley, but it's ok. Fun factor - 10 of 10.

    Pros: It's American and it's a Jeep

    Cons: Nothing

    Myjeep Commander — I love that it can seat up to 7 people even though I am the only one driving it...lol. People seem to get out of your way when you are coming at them at 80 miles per hour. Tree huggers, please note I don't drive much since work from home so blame ozone problem on someone else. =p)

    Pros: When tire pressure is off even a little it tells me.

    Cons: The 15 miles per gallon is probably a negative given gas prices, but love driving it.

    Love My Jeep — This car has been flawless... Zero defects and fast, holds 6 comfortably, hemi power for pulling and acceleration, 3 sunroof, luggage rack, privacy tinting, love the one - off design too. Tremendous service, comfort, bluetooth, GPS, Heated and Cooled everything, and it can trailer my bike, or the Ferrari. Love this beast

    Pros: Strong, luxo-SUV, understated

    Cons: Others presume it is not a good car? Ask if it a problem car - well NO!

    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.

    Pros: Nice and big, plenty of room for 7 passengers if you want.

    Cons: Not great mileage, occasional performance issues

    Very Powerful — great performance, handles well, likes to drink though. it is on the thirsty side especially with my lead foot.

    Pros: different, nice accesories, problem free,

    Cons: on the thirsty side, lots of interior plastic.

    Awesome! — This is pretty much my first car and I love it! Unlike most SUVs this thing has tight steering and doesn't handle like a boat. There's a nice selection of aftermarket products which I have installed on my Commander (off-road lights, roof rack, and grille guard). Overall the vehicle looks awesome and I love driving it, hopefully I'll be able to off-road it during the summer.

    Pros: Awesome aftermarket products (I have the MOPAR roof racks, grille guard, and off-roading lights).

    Cons: The engine takes a while to get the car to accelerate quickly, there's a small time gap between when you push the pedal to speed up and when the car speeds up.

    A Man's Vehicle — This is an awesome vehicle. Solid, powerful (hemi) and one of the most stylist vehicles on the road (Limited Edition)

    Pros: Solid, powerful, stylist

    Cons: I wish I had the new touch screen Navigation System (2007) Mine is the older in-dash
