We picked up an '06 Commander last week. I've owned 15 vehicles over the years, but this is my first Chrylser product. I was really surprised to find that there's no trip odometer in it...it's a base 4x4 with the 3.7L V6 and option package 26U...has a couple other things, but no trip odometer - or is it that I just don't know where to look? It also doesn't have daytime running lights (DRLs). I thought they are obligatory (Federal law):confused: Overall, I'm happy with the vehicle and, more importantly, so is my wife. It'll be her daily driver. I drive a Pontiac Bonneville and a GMC 2500HD pickup, but we'll probably use the Jeep on weekends.

Is there a step button below the radio in the row of buttons on the dash?, It Trip odameter and outher messages show up in the message center on speedometer. I have a limited, so no sure if they are the same. You can go between C/T Compass/ Temp. Hoe this helps and enjoy your new ride.

Daytime running lights are NOT mandated in the United States. You find them on many other models (mostly GM) that are built in Canada where I believe it is mandated.

I have the V6 (4x4) and you do have a trip odometer. Use the step button in the dash panel. Enjoy your new Commander...

Thanks, Dabitz. I found it..in fact, there are two. It also shows avg mpg (13 for me right now, with ~275 miles), miles to empty, and something else that escapes me.

Also shows tire pressure if you have that option,
I don't have the tire pressure option, but I did have to add air to all 4 tires. Dealer had 32 PSI in them, door sticker says 35. I usually run 2 psi over door sticker on my vehicles, but I'll go with 35 for now and see how it drives. It's shady, but not unusual, for dealers to deflate a bit....gives a softer ride for those pre-sale test drives.
