105K - major maintenance & a few repairs done

Got about 105k miles on my '06 4.7L. Noticed some ATF on the transmission cooling lines a few months back when I changed out my sway bar bushings and end links. Took it into the dealer over the weekend and they confirmed the hoses were leaking - I was overdue for all the fluids anyway, so I bit the bullet and had them do the new lines, transmission flush, transfer case fluid, and front/rear diff oil change. During the inspection, they also found that one of my front differential bushings was actually gone and the other two were in poor shape. I had been noticing the clunk when put in Drive or Reverse. $1500 later all this is now fixed - can't complain - the Commander is still in great shape and drives nicely, and has been relatively trouble-free. Looking forward to another 100K miles!

Good to hear that you had a good dealer experience. $1500 is definitely worth it to keep the XK running well.

yeah, it was a little bit of sticker shock at first, but it really has been a good vehicle and (knock on wood) has no other issues, so I'm hoping it buys more a few more good years at least.

Those bushings are all labor so thata what cost you so much I'm sure. Good maintenance is required for any vehicle to last a long time money well spent.
