Smile New Owner! 2006 Commander Sport

Hey Everyone,

New here, I am picking up my 2006 Jeep Commander Sport tomorrow. It's silver with gray interior. I believe it's just the base model (all I need) and it only had 24K miles on it. Drove great on the test drive, no dings or scratches. I got a carfax and there were no issues reported. I paid $13,995. Is that a good deal?

One very stupid question, I didn't buy from a Jeep Dealership so I don't think they would know this answer. What is the frequency of the oil changes? Also, any recalls or TSB's I should know about?

Thanks again

Amy

Welcome Amy, Glad to have you here.

For a full list of TSB's Click Here

As far as oil changes, that is really your preference but I would recommend every 3,000 miles.

Thank you so much! I have no idea how to find out if my Commander had any of these TSB's done. Have you had any major problems with yours? I fell in love with it the second I test drove it. I don't understand the posts that bash the look of this vehicle. Personally, I'm very excited to be driving this manly looking SUV I think it has a great design.

most likely everything needed has been done since you have an '06.

The only issues I have had was a recall on the brakes and the TSB on windows that would go up or down further that you wanted when you pushed the button (automatically go back down).

Some have had more issues but mine has been basically trouble free (hopefully yours too). I would say drive it for 30 days and then see if you have any issues as I would think they have been fixed by the previous owner.

Do you plan on doing any offroading or are you a street driver only?

Well from the Carfax report I found out that the Jeep was delivered to the dealership on 1/16/06 and not sold unitl 10/28/06. The owner had the car for 1 year and 11 months then my dealership bought it from the auction. So I hope that most of the issues have been addressed. Again, I bought it from a used car dealer so I doubt they know the specifics about the vehicle like an actual Jeep Dealership would. My husband and I frequent the woods of Maine every year so this will be a great vehicle to get us there.

Welcome to the forum BostonAmy.

I am a New England boy born and raised.

Your Commander, like mine, may have been a rental in the beginning of it's life. I have had no major problems with mine. Only issue I have ever had was the front passenger window which was fixed under a TSB warrenty and an issue with the shifter but I cannot remember the exact issue with that. I do remember it was fixed under another TSB warrenty though.

Where in Maine do you and your husband go?

I have family in Bangor.

Welcome to the forum. If I remember correctly I think if you call a Chrysler dealer with your vin numbers they can tell you what has been done to your Commander. I am sure if this isn't correct someone else will let you know and how to check on it.

Thank you for all the information. The carfax stated it was a one owner vehicle so I don't believe it was a rental. My husband and I go to Orrington, Maine to Lake Thurston. Very beautiful.

You can also enter your VIN on the Jeep.com web site and the system will check for you, Most likely the dealer did it before they sold it too you.

Gratz on your great vehicle. I would've got the Silver myself if Steel Blue didn't exist.
