Hello all and thanks!

Good evening! Thanks for adding me to the forum. I've read a bunch of posts and topics already and I think I'm ready to take the plunge! There's a fully loaded '07 commander limited in black and a 4.7V8 for sale near me which I'm really interested in and I would really value your opinions on it. As stated...an 07, 4.7, 91000 on the clock. I'd be the 3rd owner. It was sold new and used at the same dealer near me with a pretty good reputation. The Jeep has new tires in May, brakes and oil change. I'd like to do a coolant flush and t-stat and also a tranny flush like 3x to get as much new fluid in it.
My question is...do you think it'll be worth 7200-7500? The asking price is 8995 and the current owner was offered 7700 on a trade at the very same dealer. Private owner has owned it for about 7 years. Thanks very much in advance and looking to contribute as much as I can!

On Manheim (auto auction house), a 2007 Commander 4.7 Limited with 91k miles has a MMR value of $6,900. That's the wholesale price, what dealers are willing to pay before reconditioning.

They are averaging $5,150 with 124k miles.

I think $7500 is a good price.

If it was me, I'd search for a 2008 V8. It has an updated interior, a much more powerful 4.7, closer to the 5.7 numbers. I think you can find a 2008 for around $8k if you look really hard. Might have a bit over 100k miles, but that's ok.

Thanks Pokermunkee for the advice! I think I'll take this one...our market in Pa is pretty grim and I need to get a vehicle asap. Overall reliability is good? Gotta haul a wife, 2 toddlers and a baby in it so the budget will be tight for a while

See this one in Pitts?

https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invent...ting=215617325

That's a good deal, maybe you can get for $8k. Also has the HEMI, so 100hp and 90lb-ft more than the 2007 4.7. It will also have power rear lift gate, remote start, backup camera, and a few other cool things the 2007 probably doesn't have. It's missing the rear wiper. But has a K&N air intake, rear DVD, and the factory tow package. I'd jump all over that guy.

If all the recalls and campaigns are completed, it has a clean CARFAX report and you can get a complete maintenance history from the seller it's worth that much in my opinion.

I'd also take a thorough look underneath it for any rust and impact damage; while in Neutral, shift into & out of 4-LOW and make sure you can do so without receiving the dreaded Service 4WD System message in the EVIC and also put it in reverse and make sure the back-up camera display on the head unit is working.

To Anybody who is Looking to buy a Commander;

You can check to see if all of the factory recalls & campaigns have been completed for the Commander you're looking at (or for the Commander you have already bought) by clicking on the hyperlink below & plugging in the VIN; If you are still looking and have not bought your Commander yet, I strongly recommend you do this BEFORE you buy it;

https://www.mopar.com/en-us/my-vehic...ls/search.html

To get the factory build sheet for the Commander you are looking at, or for the Commander you have already bought, click on the link below and navigate to "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.

Dodge - Contact Us

Alternate Link: https://jeep.custhelp.com/app/jeep/eqlisting_detail/

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.

Additionally if you buy a Commander, and it didn't come with an owner's manual, you can download and print a factory owner's manual from this website; here is the link - and again, this is from the same website I listed above, just navigate to the point where you select "year" and "model" of the vehicle you want the owner's manual for:
