So my battery died and couldn't start it so checked the battery and it was bad. I bought a new one, replaced it and started it. I put it in drive stepped on gas peddle and it didn't go. Put it in park and tried to rev the engine and nothing. I replaced the peddle and same problem. I replaced the throttle body and tried to relearn the computer and nothing... So $400 latr and not being able to return the parts because they are electric parts I'm out of ideas. Any have any ideas... I'm tempted to tow it to the dealer and spend what they are gonna charge me to put it on the comPuter.

People who aren't having issues don't tend to post. Overall reliability has been pretty good for the '06 - '08 models, according to Identifix.

I've had no issues with my 2010 Commander Sport. No visits to the dealer for any quality issues. We love it!

Enjoy! Mine has been happy ever since I replaced every component possible. I would suggest a third party extended warranty when factory's ends. Just in case.

2006 3.7, purchased new and only has 35K on it ( I really don't drive much which is probably a good thing). Sorry to hear about your troubles. I am way past leaking windshield, cracked windshield (3 times), whistling windshield, bad blow motor, won't start, will start, won't start, panel lights that come on for no reason (no reason according to the stealership), abismally stained seat coverings, windows that go up and down by themselves, exterior paint that scratches with a fingernail, disappearing antifreeze. I am now up to a transmission that is leaking onto the driveway. Yay for me.

I have a 2006 Jeep Commander 4.7L. bought it at Peel Chrysler (Mississauga, Canada). Had tire indicator problem for one tire.... would not indicate tire pressure, took it to dealership and they replaced/recalibrated the sensor $$$.
As of today I'm having intermittent starting problems...... All the dashboard lights and blower motor turn on when the key is in the ON position but the vehicle just wont start!!! The past few times this has happened, all I would have to do is to wait 24-36 hours and the vehicle would start with no problem??? Although when it does start the blower motor will sporadically turn on and off.... Cant wait for the cold weather to begin. OH yes, almost forgot to mention that since the first month that I've owned the vehicle (3 years) I have had transmission problems...... It seems to take a freakashly long period of time to switch from first to second gear. At times I wonder if my transmission is about to explode?! But when it finally does shift into second, the following gear shifts are effortless??? Brought it back to the dealership twice for this same problem and each time they so called "fixed" the problem it would reoccur a few weeks later. They revised the software the first time and replaced the filter the second time (not covered under warranty). This went on until my extended warranty expired and I dont want to have to use my hard earned money to pay for them to fix and not repair my problem!!! So to this day I truly believe that the only way to resolve my problems is to get rid of the CRAPPY COMMANDER and NEVER, EVER PURCHASE another CHRYSLER VEHICLE EVER AGAIN!!!
Good Luck to all the Commander owners out there.

Love your sense of humour!!! I guess if you cant drive it, you might as well laugh about ( at ) it.
