A follow up on the piece of junk:
After the ignition switch was fixed, it shortly after wouldn't start.
Had the delicate little tank towed to a mechanics, on the way , via the tow,
the "sheep" or jeep, got stuck in gear.
Literally, was in neutral towed onto flatbed, when we took it off, it was stuck in gear, even in neutral, it was locked up. So we still put a new starter on, thinking, this might be an electrical thing, once we start the engine, maybe the electrical system would kick the gear back down.
Now the transmission ( rear differential) is locked up!!
GARBAGE VEHICLE,COME TAKE IT, I WILL GLADLY DEFAULT ON THE LOAN!
Its an unsafe vehicle to drive!!

Just wanted to update. After a year of no one being able to figure out the on and off light problem. I called Jeep direct. So through them I had to make another appt. THIS time I got the problem on Video! yay me! Then it hit me and I can't believe I am that stupid I didn't figure it out before, THEN how can the mechanics not figure it out and they are supposedly knowing what they are doing. I thought it HAD to be the light switch. The service manager said that since the dash and headlights and parking lights were going out that they aren't connected anywhere for one thing to be causing it....well DUH they are all connected in the switch. Well at least after having Jeep contact them, I was top priority. When they were done and called, the guy said good news! And I said...it was the SWITCH and you replaced it right? And he said how did you know?? lol YEahhhhhh took them a YEAR to figure out that one! So no other problems as of yet with my 06' Commander. Corporate was actually very nice and followed up with me and the dealer repeatedly. I have noticed in the past, the engine would rev funny or seem to not going into gear at the right time. Been awhile since it did it. We are driving from Alaska to Seattle area in July...hopefully the Jeep keeps on ticking!
Hope this helped someone that had the same problem I did!
#634 of 640 Rear axle seal
Apr 19, 2011 (10:36 am)
I just had to replace the right rear axle seal in my 07 Commander. Mine is high mileage, so other Commander owners might not have experienced this yet, but I was told "all" Jeeps eventually have this problem. Can anyone shed light on that? Also how much it cost?

Ive owned a 2006 keep commander for a bit over a year now bought with one previous owner very very low mileage, I've put on a bit of miles but let me tell you the cost to get thing going!!! So far I have replaced transmission sensor replaced 1000 dollars, wheel bearings twice bad sensors 800 dollars, two batteries 250 dollars, now the starter is gone seriously JEEP!!! You should be standing behind the vehicles you make not dumping lemons onto people this vehicle should be recalled listen to your consumers!!! These vehicles have been nothing but problems on your customers take back your junk! Make better commanders or stop making them all together of they can't be made to last more than 30 seconds!!!!!!! Time jeep should have to pay for their poor make of a vehicle take your lemons back!!!

so they have done one thing right so far by stopping the manufacturing of these... However that does not fix the problems for the dopes like me who bought the ones already made!

Yeah it seems like a lot of people had some pretty significant issues with their Commanders. I have a 2010 Commander Sport that I purchased new in January 2011 with the 3.7 V6 and no sunroof. I've put 40k on it in 18 months and it has been flawless. It delivers 17 mpg in town and 20-22 mpg highway. It's no powerhouse for sure and it's a base model with no fancy technology but I think that's a good thing. But the 3.7 is a pretty reliable motor and it has a Mercedes transmission different from the V8 models.
#640 of 640 Radio/navigation System
Aug 24, 2012 (2:12 pm)
I just bought this used 2006 Commander and when I left the dealer the radio/navigation was on and I thought it was working, this morning the GPS is completely black, canít change any radio stations, stuck on AM, no one of buttons seems to do anything, no GPS, CDs or DVD, any thoughts?
