Crossfire Maintenance and Modification

 

Several months after purchasing the Commander, I spied a nearly-new car sitting in the used lot at the dealer.  I watched it all summer, just sitting there with 5000 miles on it and looking nearly new.  Finally, I stopped to check it out and found that it was well within my means.  I called Maria and picked it up that evening after trading in the Cherokee!

The reasoning was at least partly based on practical concerns.  Although this may sound like a stretch, the fact was, I was taking the Commander every time I drove to DC in good weather because it really made the 400-mile round trip and time in town so much easier.  But two things were problems.  First, it left Maria driving the Cherokee.  Secondly, it was sucking down a gallon of fuel every 12 miles.  That left little of the mileage reimbursement to take care of maintenance. 

On the sheer fun side, the car was a bargain and would provide a more interesting road trip, and for local back and forth to work gives nearly triple the mileage of the Wrangler.  Of course in bad weather I will have to go back to the Jeep but even with another car, that would be my preference.  Bad weather is a different kind of fun with vehicles for me!

Once I got the car I found a few small things that needed attention.  The low beam on the driver's side was poorly aimed and turned out to be un-adjustable.  The dealer is to replace the whole lighting unit.

The stereo amp was randomly failing leaving me with no tunes.  I drove round-trip to Massachusetts (11 hours each way) with a couple hours of music on the way there and nothing on the way back.  Talk about deprivation.  It was all I could do not to resort to acceleration and speed for entertainment...

The car is incredible, both in terms of looks and performance.  It's not going to go 4-Wheeling of course, but it's great on a nice stretch of twisty road!

One universal gripe that I share regards the incredibly useless cup holder that lies on the space between the stick shift and my shoulder.  There is no way it could ever be used for a cup holder unless the car is parked and you don't mind leaving your arm crushed against your side to keep it out of the way of the cup holder.  Maybe I will conceal an ejector seat button under it or something...

Temporary XM Radio and GPS V Install

I installed the GPS V on the dash with semi-permanent double-sided tape, and the XM-Radio from the Cherokee temporarily on the dash.  This turned out to be very temporary...
