#33 of 43 2006 Commander Too Much Trouble
Aug 19, 2008 (5:32 am)
I have brought my vehicle in at least a dozen tmes for wind noise and numerous other issues. The dealer in Panama City, Florida claim it is caused by the mirrors. This time, I was advised the service adviser drove it and it was normal. The miles on my vehicle were less than 1 mile total. How could anyone have possibly test drove the vehicle.
I also drove through 8 inches of standing water after street flooded this past spring. The vehicle sucked up water and ended up needed a new motor, $6000.00. This is a SUV and a Jeep right? My neighbor in their small Toyota went through the same water, and drove in and out no problem.
My sun roof leaks, my transmission "clunks" at 35-40 mph when you remove your foot from the gas. Numerous sensors have been replaced. I have always been pro American cars...now I see why Japan is taking over. My dealer could care less, then they send me an email asking how my service experience was? I cannot trade it in, the trade in value is 14,000 and resell is 19,000 who would want it after they run the car fax?
Jeep is losing customers, what are they doing? I agree call and email Jeep- class action anyone?

yes there is a way to fix it. my dealership put sealer on the trim on top of the windshield. there is a black strip that is not sealed right. It work for me until i had my windshield replace. So now i will have to go buy the sealer myself and do the samething. I took my jeep somewhere else to put the windshield in they told me the dealer should not have done that but i see it this way it stop the whistling and the loud music i have to turn up so i cant hear it anymore.

i was wondering if any one had a problem with the driver side door opening toooo much. as in if any door was easily forced open to cause the door to come apart from the frame of the jeep. Could there be a recall on the doors? I purchased it like it is and didnt realize it until a few weeks later. i thought the whistling sound came from a seal but it wasnt, its coming from the gap in the door. the history came up clean no accidents/ damages so someone had to cover it up. i bought it used its an 08 commander. it appears the door was pushed so far opened the mirror hit the side of the jeep, the dents match. any one have any suggestions?

I had the same problem. The wonderful whistling windshield. The windshield whistling disappeared only after a rock hit my windshield and I had the windshield replaced.

I just bought an 06 commander a few months ago, after reading these posts i finally found out why my car likes to whistle. its really really annoying. But where or how did you get these seals or trims or what ever you wanna call them? do you get them at the dealer and have them put it on or what? or is it done by getting your windshield replaced?

My 2006 Jeep Commander was also whistling on the highway. What I did was adjust the roof rack. I spaced the front and rear bars further away from eachother, my car hasn't whistled since. It's been 2 years. Thank you Greg

i know you posted this quite a while ago but because i also had windshield replaced which has since resulted in intermittent water leaks into the front passenger side i'm wondering what you did to finally stop that leaking.
last year leaking stopped (after ruining a $1500 bag) after i had the sunroof drains cleaned out. now i have the leak and cleaning out the sunroof drains has not helped.
I have the technical service bulletions jeep published on this and those TSBs blame the door seals; repairs will total anywhere from $700-1,200. tomorrow it goes to a windshield repair shop to see if it is indeed a windshield seal issue or the door seals as the technical service bulletion states.
so, if you have had good results stopping the leak simply by repairing the windshield seals, please let me know.

yes, my drivers door swings open too much. and given the commanders other problems i am afraid that it too will fall off. please let me know if you were able to find a safety recall, TSB or just a solution to this problem.
