Making the move... buy now?
After 41 years of driving cars, I'm about to move over to the "truck" side! We've had SUV's before, my wife's card, Dodge Durango, GMC Yukon XL and my wife's brand new Ford Expedition EL Limited so I know something about the non-car life.
After my two Maxima's I think I'm ready for the versatility of the SUV format, but I didn't want "my wife's car"! I looked at the new Dodge Durango, but again, its one I could see my wife in. I did not like the column shift on the Durango. Then I stumbled onto the Jeep Commander! Wow, what a great look and the cockpit fits me like a glove. I like the size, the styling and the equipment and sophistication of the Limited.
Like others, I've been doing extensive research and have been a little alarmed at what I've read about the Jeep. Consumer Reports and Edmunds are kind of scathing about the Jeep. Its as if they are offended its not just a 7 seat clone of the crossovers or the behemoths like the Suburban, Yukon XL, or Expedition XL. The Jeep appeals to other than the "normal" crowd.
1. So, would you buy your Commander again?
2. Is this be best time to buy? (Four limiteds in my area still available and NO movement for over 3 weeks)
3. What should I pay (how much below MSRP, or below invoice)
I look forward to driving my own Commander in the next few weeks!
Thanks for everyone who shares on this board. I've learned a lot already.
