#194 of 350 2006 Jeep Commander Cabin Air Filter
Feb 22, 2009 (2:18 pm)
Our jeep was recently at a animal farm, it was a dirt/dusty parking area and ever since then when we turn on the air conditioning we get this fresh from the farm odor that is not so pleasant, I don't think it ever goes away just gets more bearable.
I understand there is is cabin air filter. Is this the source of the recurring odor? and I can't find a repair manual showing the location of this item.
Does anyone have a diagram showing the location.
#195 of 350 Engine stall
Mar 11, 2009 (10:30 pm)
I actually had this same problem i was on a hill one day and my Commander just cut off. It really caught me by surprise i couldnt figure out what happened so i drove straight to the dealership and told them that i was at the light and it just cut off and they asked me if i hit the key with my knee we asked him if he was joking but he wasnt my keys never touch my knee. They claimed a lot of people hit their keys and this causes the problem.
#196 of 350 Never notified of Recall causing tranmission to go out
Apr 17, 2009 (6:19 pm)
I have a 2006 4.7ltr commander.. The problem started as stalling, And eventually led into transmission issues. I never recieved notice of a possible recall and now I am having to pay for a new tranmission at 40,000 miles. My warrenty was up at 36,000. Im just wondering if any one else never recieved recall info? This is crazy. Is this because my warranty was up? And they were looking to make a few bucks? Im looking into my options, Any comments would be great! Lisa
#198 of 350 Jeep Commander, Stall and No Start (2times)
Apr 27, 2009 (4:15 pm)
Read, and then haven't been able to recover, a posting that reiterates my experience, i.e., my Commander, twice now, has just refused to start. It takes about 3 attemps and then the engine starts. And, these two times are separated by months, different weather conditions, etc. the only common denominator is that i went to a different gas station than usual, called Mercury. Some people have suggested that poor gas may have been the problem.
I also noticed that when driving it in town (Westport, CT,i.e., slow going here because everyone takes great pride in driving no more than 30mph when they're not driving 25) it feels like it needs me (I'm a game theorist/international relations and not an engineer so i apologize with errors in vernacular) to put more pressure on the gas pedal, once i do that it runs more smoothly.
I spoke with local dealer where it was purchased and their mechanic who has been there for one year said that he's never seen this problem; but, now i see that there's an entire forum on the issue.
Has anyone had experiene of receiving the remedying diagnosis for this? Because it happens so infrequently, I don't want to drop off at dealer (they'll say that they can't replicate it).

I'm having the same problem. I own a 2007 and have had trasmission problem and know when I try to start my car nothing. I have had to turn the key up to thirty times to get the engine started. I have know Idea what is wrong with it. My warranty is up I have 44,000 miles. I'm not every happy with this car. When I did have a warrranty the dealer never could find what was wrong. I don't know what to do.
#200 of 350 2008 Jeep Commander U-connect
Aug 31, 2009 (12:26 pm)
Just bought a 2008 jeep commander. No problems yet. However, the blue tooth buttons above the radio, for U-Connect, says "U-connect" unavailable when pushed. What do I have to buy/install to activate my hands free device? I have bluetooth for my cell in my other vehicle which is great. This one is for my wife and she really needs blue tooth as much as she talks?

Georgetown Jeep in Westport, CT and even Chrysler headquarters when they went through list of recalls - go figure - didn't find the one that pertained to my car!
I am looking forward to my refund and towards the car being repaired finally...
so thankful to you and so sick of Chrysler and Georgetown Jeep...i never thought that i would say this but unless they admit their error and apologize, this will be the last Jeep I purchase.
