Jeep Commander Problem Report

Jeep Commander Broken interior doors at the handles.

(40 reports)
I have the same problem with my driver-side door handle being broke, but there was no way I was going to pay that much money to get it fixed. So I did some research online and found a web site www.denlorstools.com where I can order replacement door handles. There's a video that shows how to replace the handles in DIY fashion. No reason to pay a dealer $1000 just to replace some door handles! http://www.denlorstools.com/autoblog/2012/05/jeep-commander-interior-broken-door-handle-solved/ -
I have an 06 Jeep Commander 5.7 Hemi with chrome handles. The handles began breaking apart shortly after 60,000 miles. I got replacement handles on ebay for about $45 each. 90,000 miles later they are still looking like new, and did not have to pay $600+ for each door panel. It is very easy to install, just a little hassle to take the panel out, but well worth it. Just search in ebay for "2006 jeep commander door handle". Make sure you select the correct one for each door. (eg. FR, FL, RR, RL). -
The plastic surround around the door handle became fractured and slowly piece by piece began to break off and fall into the inner door. As of now have not had it fixed viewing the costs some of you have cited. -

I contacted Chrysler shortly after the purchase of my commander and reported this problem. They denied any knowledge of this situTion. This issue was denied any wrong doing by Chrysler and they tried to blame this on abuse by me and my family however I advised them I purchased a jeep for the well known durability and fact that it was American vehicle but was completely dissatisfied by the cheap plastic door handles provided on a 100 year vehicle company with notoriety in the service industry & off road durability. Chrysler did agree to replace all four of my panels as they were all broken at no charge to me. I did have this completed but have since had another issue of the exact same kind. I am glad to see that some one now has a repair kit at a much less expensive cost to fix this reoccurring defect in this design. Although I'm overly disatisfied with the fact I again have to repair this problem, my commander is a great running truck that has served me very well for the past 9 years. Very littl maintenance and she runs like a champ. For those like me who have had this problem, thank you for the repair kit to save $300-400 per door for the entire panel to replace as the handle is a major issue and a necessity to have working properly. -
