#3 of 69 2006 Jeep Commander water in floor board
Oct 20, 2009 (2:54 pm)
I have taken my Jeep in for the windshield whistling and for the water on the floor board on the driver side. They have attempted twice to repair the water problem with no luck. I myself took apart the side panel over the hood release lever to find a blue tube running from the drainage system up top down through the floor board. I found that the tube was too short which explains why the water was not draining properly because it wasn't shoved into the floor outlet far enough. I have to go find a tube or hose that will extended it so that it will drain properly. Of course the car is out of warranty but I don't think it would have mattered.

I also had a water problem with Jeep. First have you found the problem? On my situation the dealer checked the drainage hoses but had found nothing wrong. yet when it rained, water still leaked in. Then I noticed that water came in from the weatherstriping. So I took off the plastic molding off the doorway by the seat and stuffed a small towel. Sure enough when it rained the towel got wet. The weatherstriping spilts on the bottom part of the door frame. I started to pull off the weatherstriping from the bottom of the door frame upwards. To my surprise between the door frame and the striping there is water. I followed the striping all the way up and there was the problem... buckling. I actually see the water going in when I poured water and once again the towel got wet. The weatherstrip was buckled from where the frame bent downward allowing the water thats on the roof of the truck to leak in. Actually that weathestriping is surposed to have some sought of tape or glue to prevent it from peeling off but I guess it was poor installation. How funny this is cause not even the dealer took notice. Well the dealer replaced it and I checked all the weatherstriping on all the door frames. Best of luck and hope you find the problem like I have.

Just recently, my jeep leaks water on the passenger floorboard when it rains. When i looked underneath the head liner, i noticed one of the rear drains on the sunroof was missing the blue drain hose (this was a defect from the manufacture). I took it to the local dealer and they confirmed it. The local dealer said they would have to pull out the rear AC and try to determine a way to install the new drain hose down the C pillar and the job would be based on time & material (probably around $500).
I called chrysler customer service to explain my case, the next day they called back and denied my claim because my jeep is out of warranty. I told them that i am not asking to replace a bad part, but asking to install a part that i originally paid for. After about 10 minutes of going round and round, they were still not willing to do anything.
I'm not sure what my rights are here, but it does not seem fair.

I own a 2007 Jeep Commander and have discovered water in the floorboard when it rains and have been investigating this issue and found it to be dripping from the hold bar inside the car when it rains. I didn't understand it and didn't seem to have this problem until my windshield was replaced by Safelite Auto Glass Repair. If anyone has gotten any relief or knows why this is happening please let us know.

I have a 2006 Commander. This is also a repeat problem for me. We have had heavy rains the past two days. I had about an inch of water on the drivers side floor boards also. This is the third time this has happen, very upset. Taking it to the dealer on Friday. I am not a happy Jeep owner.
My first leak was from the hold bar also. Jeep told me that the sun roof drains were clogged? Maybe I should have boght a commander without the sunroof....
The smell in my Commander is getting really bad. My Jeep has the funk.

I have had this problem for years. However, the last time I took it in the warranty had expired. I called Jeep and put in a formal complaint. I had to take the car in for an official diagnosis. I was told that the drains were clogged. This is the same thing I was told every time I took it in. I raised hell. I asked for a different vendor to look at the problem (it had always been the same one). So again, I was told the same thing. So I called Jeep back and told them I was pissed and they said they would check into it. Anyway, this new vendor did "fix it" and Jeep was going to pay for it. But, I lost my temper and told them I was not happy and would not consider this issue closed.
Well it has been six months with no water, so I will keep my fingers crossed.
One thing I notice was it would only get water on my dash and floor when I was parked in my driveway face down the hill. Of course I would hear the water over my head until I drove the car and the water would managed to escape.
When I spoke to Jeep, they said that they have never heard of this complaint before. I to am not a happy Jeep owner. I had a sunroof in my Cherokee and never had a problem in the 10 years I owned it. So for now this will be my last Jeep.

i just bought a 2006 jeep commander and i have a water leak on the driver side. it is coming in up to somewhere and i cant find it. the head liner is wet at the corner of the A post and below the push light. i sealed the factory trim under weather striping on driver side front and back door, cleaned out the sunroof drains, and ran water for an half hour and nothing woke up the morning and the headliner was wet again. its driving me nuts. the jeep is in my driveway facing up on a little incline. anyone have this problem or no how to fix it .going to remove the headline but the certain air bags everywhere
