I have had my 2007 commander for going on 3 years now and just recently started having the leak, about 2 inches of water on the passenger side floorboards. I have noticed drips of water coming from what I believe is the screw cover near the handle near the windshield on the passenger side. If you are bringing a class action lawsuit, please include me as I take meticulous care of my commander, now the inside, for several days after drying out, stinks like mold and mildew...

Ok, so I think I might have easily fixed my problem. I took the advice from and early post and removed the plastic trim on the door sill, it easily snapped on and off with zero tools. Took the inside plastic, near the passengers right foot, and it too popped off with zero tools. I pulled back the carpet and immediately saw the blue tube the previous post referenced. The tube was still in place though and had not pulled out of the floor. So I looked in the sunroof and there was standing water on the passenger side. So as a fix, I pulled the house out of the floor and blew through it with simply lung power. I heard bubbles from above and then all the water came pouring out of the tube. I placed it back into the hole, it seems to be held in by the ribs on the hose itself, then replaced all items just by snapping them back into place. We are expecting a big storm later this evening and I will update this post if there is more flooding.

I own a 2007 Jeep Commander. I actually took apart the inside of my car and poured water over the top of it. I can assure you it has nothing to do with the sunroof drain tube. It's a bad seal oround the windshield on the top right hand corner. Ours stays parked under a carport and does not get driven much, but now we are having trouble with whole idleing issue, the seat warmers stopped working, and it died on my wife on the way to Vacation Bible School yesterday with a car load of kids in the middle of the highway and came to a screeching halt. If there's gonna be a class action, I want in.

I've just emailed you. I just found this post out of searching in dire frustration over my Commander that has been leaking since I've had it (5 years now) but it's just become so unmanageable. The carpets, air ducts, speakers, electrical - all ruined and mold and mildew growing - major health hazard not to mention the slipping while the carpets are wet and I'm trying to drive in the rain. Jeep has transferred my case 3 times to different people within corporate and no help. The dealer won't help either because it's not the original dealership. I need help in the worst way. I'd just trade the damn thing but it isn't worth what I still owe with all this damage. I'll jump at a lawsuit this instant!

Bought mine from CarMax 4 months ago and noticed the floorboard on the driver's side was damp. Didn't think too much of it until I came across this site. It only happens after it rains and I thought I had a hole under the car. I wash it regularly and didn't notice a problem. Just last week though, I did experience the dashboard lighting up like a christmas tree. Went away after a few minutes. I'm in Texas by the way. Do you have a link to this lawsuit? Has it been started or filed yet? This is really concerning and answers my question to why Chrysler discontinued the Commander. It's a shame because I really like mine.

I have the same problem with my 2006 commander. The water is over welling at this point. I don't know what to do. I've had the jeep for three years. I would like to join in. Please let me know what to do. Thanks.
