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

2006 Jeep Commander Reviews

2006 commander My jeep has been showing transmission over temp off and on. I feel it tugging when driving, we've had the transmission fluid replaced but still showing sign and tugging.

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...
