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!
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;
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.

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:
