2008 Jeep Commander Recalls
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.
The front control module may have been manufactured incorrectly. As a result, the windshield wipers could fail or the engine could stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front control module and replace it as necessary. The recall is expected to begin on February 18, 2008. The Chrysler recall number is H03.
