I just bought my first Jeep. It's a 2010 with 30,000 miles that was owned by a service technician and has been really taken care of. It's White. With a 8 Cyl HEMI. It has leather, navigatation, back up camera, 4X4 crome front, with really nice brown leather seating. It's really fun to drive. It's trail rated. I am embarassed to say, I don't know anything about it, but want to learn. I was at a Volvo dealer looking at the V60 small luxury SUV. When I saw even the used were a bit out of my price point, they pulled the Commander up which was traded in by the service advisor who worked for Volvo and he traded it in.
1. Can you take this off road. It has kind of wimpy 16 inch tires and seems like it's really meant for just snow. Not off road. But it does day trail rated. I will like to take it off road, If i thought the truck could handle it.
2. I am concerned about the maintenance. I have heard Jeep's are not reliable. But I guess if a car has been taken care of, you should be ok if you take care of it.
3. I paid 24,500. Which I think was a bit much. I wonder if they will keep the resell value. I figue the V-8 might since they really don't make these anymore. I Plan to keep it for at least 3 or 4 years and enjoy driving it.
