Jeep Commander Problems

3.7 V6 and 4.7 V8 engines may develop exhaust leaks due to broken exhaust manifold bolts. Exhaust manifold gaskets and bolts should be replaced as necessary.

A water leak from the sunroof and/or headliner is often caused by clogged or misrouted sunroof drain tubes. Inspecting the sunroof drain tubes should be the first step in checking for the cause of these type of water leaks.

The service 4WD system light may illuminate with no fault codes stored in the final drive control module (FDCM). Our technicians tell us a software update for the FDCM is available to correct this concern.

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.

Chrysler is recalling 2010 Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, Charger, Jeep Commander, Grand Cherokee, and Dodge Ram vehicles due to a problem with the wireless ignition node (Win) module, which can exhibit a binding condition of the solenoid latch. It's possible that the key can be removed from the ignition switch prior to placing the shifter in "Park," which can cause unintended vehicle movement. Dealers will inspect and replace the Win module free of charge.

Chrysler is recalling 2010 Jeep Commander and Grand Cherokee vehicles because the rear track bar may have been manufactured improperly.

I have the Limited with the Hemi and towing package. It tows great! I have issues however, with the electrical side of this car since the day I bought it and no one will fix it. It now turns off and on randomly while driving down the interstate at 70 miles an hour or on a side street at 40 mph.

It is a major source of frustration. I had to replace the rear brake pads at forty thousand miles and now again at seventy five thousand. This is the first vehicle I have owned that wears the rea...

I bought my 2007 Jeep Commander July 2010 and I love this vehicle. I didn't do any work on this vehicle, other than regular maintenance like oil changes, filter replacements, and tire rotations, until about a month ago. I have replaced my thermostat and literally, today purchased a new set of brakes and 2 new tires for the front of the Jeep. I have heard horror stories about Jeeps and I have...
