Hey... I am having a similar problem.. I have a 2008 Jeep Commander.. The water started leaking in the door on the front passenger side... I have tried to get the dealer to fix it.. They have this third party person who charges a set rate of $250.. It just so happens that that is the same amount of the deductible. I have been shopping around because not only is the service at the dealership awful, but I don't understand how the integrity and/or the seals on the cars doors can be compromised this soon after the car left the assembly line. I have contacted an attorney at 1800lemonlaw. In the meantime I have called another dealership for an estimate.. Its no way that Chrysler does not know that these cars are leaking. They need to be held accountable, especially since they got a piece of the bailout monies so that these dealerships could stay up and running..

I just purchased a 2006 Commander with 60K. on it. The floor boards were wet when I purchased it, so I had the dealer sign an agreement that they were responsible to fix this issue or give my money back. Cleaning out the door drains seems to have fixed this issue, but I'm still concerned that the issue will come back. It's only been a few weeks so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I've also heard people say that its taken a new windshield to solve the issue. My research made it clear that this is a big issue and Jeep is not taking responsibility as of yet. If the problem comes back and it doesn't get fixed, I'm contacting a good attorney. If enough Jeep owner do this they will have to do something. I hope?

Hi, was wondering if any of you have had any luck with getting the water leak problem fixed, or contacting an attorney. My sister-in-law and I both have a 2006 Jeep Commander and have been dealing with this problem for quite some time now. Her car completely shut down a couple of days ago with all of the rain we have had.

Sounds like some of you have had the same problem... I have a 2006 Commander that I bought in Jan 2007 and here in the Pacific NW it has been great.
Is there a connection between water leaks and the speakers cutting in and out?
How are they connected?

I have an 06 Commander that developed a water leak that was soaking both the drivers and passengers side floor boards. I don't know if any of you have the sunroof option but I traced my problem back to clogged drains that channel down the door pillars. They were a little tricky to get to but I blew them out with compressed air and have not encountered this problem since.
#8 of 90 2008 Jeep Commander Water Leak
Apr 04, 2011 (12:23 pm)
I just bought a 2008 Commander that just hit 36,000 miles. The front driver's side floor was wet when I got it. Now everytime it rains, the driver's side floor is soaked. I cannot tell where the water is coming in from. I don't think the warranty will cover the repair since I am no on 37,000 miles. The one thing I did notice is that when it is dry out, I roll down the driver's side window and when I roll it back up, there is water on the window. When I do the same to the passenger side's window, it is dry. That got me thinking that the water is coming in from the window some how? Any thoughts on what I can do so that the floor doesn't end up rotting out, etc. At first I thought it was coming in when the roads were wet, but the car had dry floors three days ago, I have not driven it since and today it is raining and the floor is wet. So...the water is coming in while the car is in parked position. Pls help... shouldn't I be able to get this fixed. There must be a recall???

Hello, I also have an 06 Commander and shortly after buying thevehicle we had a water leak in the front left driver floor after a hard rain. im still having the problem but even worse now after the radio went mute . so today i started looking around on the net to see if any other customers were having issues with their commanders and sure enough just about every customer has had the water leak and the exhaust bolts breaking causing the exhaust ticking noise (i have repaired that myselft about a month ago) and just a lot of electrical issues prob. due to a minor water leak that has not been seen yet . anyway i took my panels off inside going to the a-pilar and removed drain from left side of sunroof to find it completely stopped up with trash and looks like some black foam insulation of some sort but clogged causeing water from sunroof not to drain at all but overflow and run down to all four floors now so hopefully that will stop for a while . i saw a post today from someone who said they found out that the drains arent large enough to handle the water flow from a hard rain and thats what someone at the dealer told them . so it appears that jeep has seen a lot if not all of these water leak issues and radio issues due to water leaks and cant understand for the life of me why there is not a recall yet but i do know that if you have it reapaired at a dealer and later jeep comes out with a recall on it then the manufacure will refund all of your money back that was paid on attempting to repair the leak but you need to keep recipt for proof to send in to the manufacture.

Good Luck... my Commander leaks and I do not have a sunroof. The front driver's floor is soaked after it rains. I know carry a tarp in the back of the car and leave it on the roof when I am not driving it and it's raining. It is the only way that I can keep the car from rotting away and having all these electrical problems that I have read about. I washed my car w/a hose the other day and the floor was dry. It doesn't come in that much when I am driving it on a rainy day. If it rains while parked...the floor is soaking wet. I am so sick of it... everyone drives by and wonders why this car always has a bright blue tarp over the front driver's window. I had a Jeep Laredo before and wish I purchased another one. This Commander issue should be have a recall or Jeep will be loosing their customers. So if anyone else has a solution or has been able to fix the problem on a Commander w/no sunroof, please post something for all of us who are miserable and hate rain!!!!!
