2006 Jeep Commander Recalls

The Engine May Turn Off Unexpectedly

While operating the vehicle the driver may hit the ignition key with their knee, accidentally moving the key out of the run position. If this were to occur the engine would turn off, affecting various safety systems and increasing the risk of a crash and/or personal injury. As of this writing, the remedy for this recall is still under development.

The Transfer Case may Shift into Neutral Unexpectedly

The 4-wheel drive transfer case can direct engine power to the rear wheels only, all four wheels, or in its neutral position, non at all. These vehicles are being recalled because the transfer case can shift into its neutral position without warning. If this were to occur, engine power would not reach any of the drive wheels and the vehicle could not move under its own power. Dealers will reprogram the final drive controller which governs the transfer case to correct this concern.

Bad Programming in Control Module May Cause Engine to Stall

Improper programming in the PCM powertrain control module may case the engine to stall. This could cause a crash. The dealer will reprogram affected units. The Chrysler recall # is H19

Even though, I would tell them it would shut down and lights go off and on and engine would stop on a mountain,on the interstate,etc. Then after charging me a$100 plus for their time or changing a light bulb for$150.00 and the list goes on and on until one da...
My 2006 jeep commander is the worst car I ever bought. I've had several lights come on. The air bag light has been on for 2 years now. Had it service 7 times,by 2 differnt dealers, for this light, and after changing many parts it is still on. The main computer and transmission went out at 75000miles. Replace exhaust manifold bolts 2 times and is ready for a third time. Muffler failed and was on...
