Just ordered my Commander!

..And in 6-8 weeks, I shall officially join the ranks!

This will be my third Jeep, replacing a 1997 GC, which replaced a 1987 Cherokee.

So far, I'm happy with my decision and fortunately have a fantastic dealer here that helped quite a bit and was patient as I agonized over options.

I finally went with:

Limited, Black ext, Saddle interior.

Hemi (so 4x4 with Quadra-drive)

uConnect, Nav, off-road and tow groups (yes, I know Florida is flat as a board and zero inches of snow annually...)


So far what I do NOT like: No way to get XM on the stock radio. I've had XM for 2 years now and don't want to replace it. I am going to run them side by side, however, and make a final determination then.


The wife likes the XK as well, and considers it a worthy adjunct to her 2004 Sienna as it can carry both kids and the same amount of junk if required. So, it satisfies both her safety/practical concerns and my Tim Allen-like grunt factor.

Re: Just ordered my Commander!

Congrats, Joe! I considered ordering as well, but couldn't deal with the wait so my dealer located a jeep with the options I wanted in another state and did a swap.

Re: Just ordered my Commander!

Mine was not to be found anywhere.. Unfortunately. This will be the longest 6-8 weeks of my life. I also just missed the new incentive (durnit!) of 0% financing for 5 years.. I have the option of taking the incentives in effect when the vehicle arrives, but I suspect it can't get much better than 0%!

Re: Just ordered my Commander!

you may get lucky and recieve the commander before the incentives end. I just ordered mine a week ago. The dealer called me yesterday and told me the commander I ordered should be finished on the 8th. It will be about 2 weeks after that to get it shiped over. I should as long as all goes well get mine in less then 4 weeks from the time I ordered it. I can't wait

Re: Just ordered my Commander!

I can only hope.. Going from the 4.9% to 0% should save me 4 grand or so over the loan period, and result in lower payments, even though I'd lose $1000 in incentives.

Less than a 4 week wait would obviously be nice too!!!

Re: Just ordered my Commander!

OK... Got a call from the dealer. It will be in +- 5 days from March 6th - of course, I miss out on the 0% financing. ARGH! Hopefully they will have a nice incentive for March.

Re: Just ordered my Commander!

Joe, When I was considering ordering from the factory, the dealer said that I would get whatever deal was running at the time I placed the order. Then if there was another (better) deal when the jeep arrived, I could switch to whatever the new incentive would be. Maybe they were just blowing smoke to get a sale (I didn't get it in writing), but you may want to push the issue a little more and see if you can get the incentive that was advertised at the time you placed the order.
