I'm starting a "My Garage" thread with a copy of my first post after getting my Commander on March 31, 2007.
My Commander was delivered to my door at 7:30AM this past Saturday(3/31/07). I have been a forum member since June 2006 and was looking at Commanders since they began production. Learned all kinds of useful info here and did research in other places as well. I had decided early in 2006 that I wanted a Commander to replace my 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I have been searching the internet ever since to find what I wanted at a price that I was willing to pay. I literally looked at several hundred Commanders. Well, I think I got a good deal. I found a brand new 2006 Limited with every available option for $32,500(MSRP $45,405). It was being sold as used(only 11 miles on it) because it had been repossessed by Chrysler from a dealer that went out of business and it was purchased at a Chrysler auction by the dealer I purchased it from. I found it on the internet at AutoTrader.com. It has everything--Nav w/backup camera, DVD, Tow pkg, Off-Road Group(tow hooks,skid plates), UConnect, remote start and chrome wheels. I had the remote start added. I also asked the dealer to "flip" the tires so that the black sides were out. The only things it doesn't have that an 07 has is the power liftgate, leather covered console lid and 3-blink lane change. I think I will try to get the console lid covered to match the Saddle Brown seats. I paid $1,061 to have it shipped from Kentucky to my house in South Carolina. It was picked up last Fri.(March 30) and it was at my front door at 7:30 AM Sat. the next day! Delivered in perfect condition in a very nice enclosed 3 car trailer--thank you Enclosed Vehicle Transport of Buford, GA. Yeah, that is a plug--these guys are great!
