I'm leaving too, I bought a minivan.
LOL yeah right.
You're one of those idots that bought a 5,000 pound box and complains about gas mileage.
I wonder what's the shortest post Mongos ever made?
Wow that's a bit harsh don't you think. Becuase I am leaving I did not feel the need to elaborate as to all the problems my Commander has suffered but I will now; I bought it used in 08 (4.7L) as a CPO and owned it 3 years after owning a 4Runner for many years and a Trooper prior to that, so I am no stranger to larger SUV's and the fuel usage associated with their ownership. Although th realy tried to love teh Commadnder and in certain respects did, its problems and horid fuel consumption were too much. I was lucky to get 11mpg in town, where I do most of my driving. I kept it very well serviced and tunned. Tire pressure correct, used good fuel, clean filters and everything I could do.
Other than that, it suffered the trans line leaks, water pump failure @ 40K miles, every damn bulb on the truck would blow out constantly, both front and read headlight assemblies took on condensation (about $350.00 per ligh to fix btw). Various plastic bits constantly falling off the truck, seat skirts, shift knob, een the damn wheel well lining came loose. I was just at the end. My Toyota and Isuzu were great, drove them, mileage was acceptable, and had little to no trouble. I was simply spending too much money to maintain this truck. The dealer was great btw and tried to work with me when they could.
I have always liked wagons and Volvos so when I saw a great deal on a lightly used CPO V50 with 20K miles I traded in the Jeep. Got a fair price for it. The Volvo dealer i bought it from is also ownes a Jeep dealership so that worked out well. I am happy with the Volvo thus far. Have only owend it for a few weeks so we shall see.
