Looking to buy my 1st Commander
Iíve owned about 10 Jeeps. CJ-5, 7, TJ, several Cherokees, and most recently an 89 Wagoneer. Iím now hunting for a Commander. Even though thereís talk of bringing the Wagoneer back as a luxury SUV, I think these Commanders kind of embody the true spirit of the old Waggyís.
Just looked at a 2006 Ltd. w/116k. 4.7. When I drove it, it felt good. But there was a loud roaring noise. I checked the tires, and they were Goodyears, and in good shape. When I looked under the vehicle, the rear diff is leaking badly at the yoke seal. I'm thinking this is probably causing the roar. The truck is kinda rough. Interior is ok from the front seats forward. Interior door handles are broke, but all the gadgets (except the DVD) work. All of the rear seats, and the headliner are dirty. The carpet in the rear is stained. The front grill is broke. The lift gate is damaged, and it might need an exhaust from the muffler back.
Aside from that, it's pretty. Gold with grey interior. Power everything, NAV, etc.
Is $3k a fair price?
