Hello from France !!!!
I live in south of France near Nice...for those who know ...
Until last week i was the happy owner of a 2009 stone white Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 3.8 Rubicon...but i decided to sell it for different reasons, not least because of its fuel consumption, comfort, lack of space and a motorization that I thought lacked a bit of energy ... especially with this gearbox wrong appropriate for this vehicle.
However, I already regret the look of the Wrangler, its playful side and incredible crossing skills!
I really loved this car ... that's why I decided to post it as a profile picture ...
Now it's time to move on and as I fell in love with the Jeep universe for a long time, I decided to buy a Jeep Commander for its out-of-the-ordinary look, comfort, its huge interior space and its off-road capabilities and reliability ... whatever the motorization ...
For me here in France, it will be a 3.0 CRD (Mercedes Benz engine) because of its incredible reputation in terms of reliability and also because here in France, the 3.6, 4.7 and 5.7 engines were not widespread especially because of the cost of fuel.
So it will be a Black 3.0 CRD Limited, 170000 km (105633 miles...i think), i'm going to pick it up on Wednesday in the north of France after a thorough inspection, follow-up and maintenance check and an on-road and off-road test!
I'll back to you soon with some pics !
Oh ! I was going to forget ! You have to wonder why a little frenchy comes to register on a forum in the United States ??? Well simply because the French Jeep Commander community is almost non-existent since this vehicle did not have much success here in France ... so not very common, and therefore very little mentioned in the French Jeep forums!
So as you can imagine...I rely a lot on the forum jeep Commander.com to find useful information for my project.
I already read a lot of post ... very interesting!
Please do not hesitate to send me your advice for my purchase coming on wednesday ... check points on the vehicle before the purchase, good questions to ask the seller, etc ...
thank you in advance
