Greetings. My friends call me Knottyguy or Knotty. Some call me Craig. I live on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
We are purchasing a Commandeer this week. She will be our first Jeep. I will be a contributing member of the community. I am trying to learn as much as possible prior to the purchase.
I am sure I will get to know many of you as time passes.
Welcome to the forum;
I would recommend you get the VIN number of the Commander you are buying and do the following before
you buy it;
Go to the website URL below and plug in the VIN of the Commander you are looking at to see if all the factory re-calls & Campaigns have been completed:
Safety Recall Information | MOPAR
The difference between a safety recall and a campaign is this; a safety recall pertains to a vehicle problem that is a safety concern; a campaign is a vehicle problem that is not a safety concern, but, pertains to customer satisfaction.
You can go the website URL below to get the factory build sheet; You can also order an owner's manuals from this same website if your vehicle didn't come with a factory owner's manual.
Dodge - Contact Us
To get the factory build sheet for the Commander you are looking at, or for the Commander you have already bought, click on "Your Vehicle" click on "Equipment Listing" and then enter your VIN number in the box that says "VIN" and hit "Search". The factory build sheet will list all of the factory options & optional preferred equipment packages that your vehicle had installed from the factory when it was built.
Here is a secondary link to get a factory build sheet - either link will get you the same factory build sheet:
Also read the following thread in it's entirety - lots of good Commander Information in here for a new owner - or a potential new owner;
Best of luck with your search.
