I have the same problem with my 06 Commander, after the rain I can hear the water swoooshing around over my head, when I open the driver side door a flow of water runs out. I wish this was the only problem that I have had with this car then it wouldn't be so bad. I've got a popping noise somewhere in the fromt corner that growns whenever I turn right that no one can seem to find. Not to mention the recalls, Nav system constantly on the blink and this ticking noise that I'm told is my timing chain guard?? I've had this thing adjusted three times and it keeps returning. I don't know why everyone's picking on Toyota, whoever put this peice of junk together should have his head on a pike

Dont know if this will help. I have an 06, VERY persistent leak during heavy rains. Chased the sunroof drain prob, but found none. 3rd time was the charm. Windshield's lower was the culprit. Seems Jeep used a heat sensitive adhesive to lap where the two body parts come together just under the windshield. The adhesive had partially released and allowed water (about 2" on the floor board) to accumulate. Pulling the vent trim just under the windshield and applying a GOOD urethane sealant (3m windshield adhesive #08690 or better, depends on your climate) did the trick.

I have a 2007 Jeep Commander and I had a new windshield installed in March. Starting about the first of July water started standing in the floor on the passenger side after a rain. I had the windshield checked and the installer said that it was not leaking. They had no idea what might be wrong. I am taking it to the dealer tomorrow and hope to find out what's going on.

Well, here we are March 2011 and our jeep leak is still unresolved. We bought the vehicle from Carmax and extended the warranty. They have seen the beast five times now. Each time they tell us it is "cleared" or "fixed." The most recent time, they claimed we have some kind of cooling system clog (there was a failure) and that caused a number of backups of fluid. Previous visits they told us it was always the drain tubes clogging. Has anyone found a guid book to clearing these drains? Has anyone talked about a class-action. I am willing to throw up a quick website to log complaints. Please reply.

i have this problem now and went to safelite (i also had this happen after windshield replacement but it was just a coincidence) where they/safelite showed me that it was not the windshield that was leaking but the sunroof drains were clogged. i called jeep dealer who quoted me cost of $270 to clean if only the front drains of the sunroof were clogged, double if the back 2 also needed to be cleaned. Having already been cheated by the dealer who sold me the jeep, I went to an independent autobody shop and they did it for $140.
This commander costs me about - and i was hoping this year it would be just regular maintenance - $1-4k/year in repairs on top of regular maintenance since i purchased it. So far this year i had to get new gas cap, the sunroof drains cleaned and the interior detailed 2x because of sunroof leak-drainage problem, i.e., already repairs are costing $500+ and we are only 3 months into the year.

We are having the same problem with our 2006 Jeep Commander Limited Edition. We lived in AZ for the first 3 years of ownership, which explains why we never got the "puddles!" Now after living in Wisconsin for almost 3 years and it being extremely rainy, it looks like a pond on the driver's side of the car. Chrysler should have informed us. I will be contacting a dealership today and letting them know that I would like the problem fix. A recall definitely should be issued by Chrysler regarding this problem.
