Name the Odd / Funny things you have found on your Commander!!

I'll start!!!

1. The factory IPOD hookup cable in the glove box.
2. Both the passenger and driver side coil pack have a harness loom clipped to the coil packs, but only the passenger side has a harness.
3. The oil filter has a neat molded plastic drip tray that routes the dripping oil down a chute....Right onto the power steering hoses...
4. the muffler is the largest i have ever seen on any roadgoing vehicle.
5. the exhaust sytem is basically a serpentine of goofy bends and turns
6. the airbox resonator was enormous

anyone else?

I have 2 rear view mirrors - and it seems that both were installed by the factory.

One is with all of the on-star buttons if you want to subscribe to Onstar (which I have not) and is mounted to the windshield and has some wiring going to it.

It works - I've pressed the power button before and it tells me if I want to subscribe to Onstar dial 1 800 whatever the number is.

The other rear view mirror is the generic factory rear view mirror which is mounted to the forward part of the overhead console.

It's pretty obvious looking at them that both were installed by the factory but nobody can tell me why.

There is no easy way to get either one of them off either.

This is the only photo I have where you can almost see them both - the on-star mirror (the one on the windshield) is hard to see because the awwwww-crap grab handle is blocking the view somewhat;



EDIT: Found one more old photo where you can see them a little better:

I know Chrysler does a lot of weird things. But putting two mirrors on a windshield is going to be pretty far-fetched.
Did you buy that vehicle brand new from the dealership?
If you did not. It probably is an OnStar FMV mirror.
I would get rid of one of them. It looks ridiculous.

mine only has the forward mounted mirror, with the bottons and stuff. I think the GPS antenna is in front of that.

I can't believe the engineers thought climbing over the 2nd row would be the best way to access the 3rd row. I know it's really only for kids but still, why not find a way to make the whole thing flip forward or something?
