#14 of 83 Water leak from the Black Box Behind Rearview Mirror during heavy rain
Aug 25, 2011 (8:06 am)
I have a Jeep Commander 2007 that I purchased four years ago from the dealership. Last summer during heavy rain water began leaking from the black box located behind the rearview mirror and on the passenger side floor. I took it to the dealership and they said the tubing from the sunroof is clogged and needs replacing. We let them replace it and the leak in the passenger floor stopped but water continues to leak from the black box located behind the rearview mirror. I took it to a different dealership and they said they poured water on the roof and did not see any leakage and I should call Chrysler. I called Chrysler and they said they do not know anything about Commander and I need to talk to the Dealership!
I would like to know if anyone has dealt with a problem like this and if anyone has suggestions on how to deal with this problem and also do you know a mechanic that is familiar with Jeep Commanders?

Wow so many jeeps so many leaks. I bought a used 2006 fully loaded jeep commander with all the bells and whistles and I a sitting ankle deep in water on the passanger side and when I turn I hear all the water inside. It leaks when it rains and its so frusrating because the mold smell is horrible and knats and insects breed in my jeep. I know now why someone traded it in. Its so sad because I live always concerned about the weather. I didnt buy the warrenty (shame on me) and the dealer wants to charge me some astronomical price just to look at it. Help if there is a class action suit I'm in

I know exactly how you feel. I just bought my 2008 six months ago and I am constantly checking the weather out. I had my husband build me a little carport to put the jeep under because I literally get sick to my stomach when the car is out in the rain. The floor is soaked on the driver's side. I could have bought a brand new Jeep Liberty for what I paid for this 3 year old Commander. I really hate to say it. I just may trade it in for the Liberty. I had a Jeep Grand Cherokee and put 300 miles on it before the trans. went. I love Jeeps, but this Commandore should be recalled!!!! If anyone hears of a recall, pls. contact me.

Have you had this problem since your April 2011 posting? This solution worked for me too last spring. I had the puddling/leaking Again these past 2 weeks & had the repair shop duplicate that solution but this time it's not working for me. If you had to go another route after this initial fix please let me know.

I have the same problem w/water and my Commander does not have a sunroof. It's really a shame that Jeep doesn't do a thing about this when there are so many Commander owners who have the same problem!
#20 of 83 Water Leak Problem/Radio
Jan 28, 2012 (7:56 pm)
I had no idea so many other people were having problems with their Jeep Commander water leaks. My wife's car was in the shop and she was driving it and it rained. She got off work and 3 inches of rain was on the driver's side. Now she thinks I'm a fool for keeping this car. My leaks are so bad it got in the speakers and the radio is mute just like another Jeep Commander owner.
I think we should start a group to get the design problems fixed.
Does anyone have the check gas cap warning as well?
I have the following problems:
Check Gas Cap Warning
Driver's Side Leaks
I have seen other people report the same problems. We deserve to get these
problems fixed. The Commander was supposed to have the Jeep quality behind it but the model has numerous problems. Is there any wonder why Jeep discontinued making a Commander.
Thanks for any response and if anyone has any ideas how we can get the problems addressed, let me know.

I second bringing a lawsuit to have the Jeep Commanders recalled to
fix this problem. I think 100% of the Commanders leak. See my
post. I have a few other common problems as well.
I will start contacting people if we get enough support.

Pls.... we do need a lawsuit. It is ridiculous. We had rain two days ago and my car mats are in the house still drying! Apple had a problem w/the cords on the their Macintosh laptops. I was going crazy replacing them; this was going on for years. People were online complaining just like we are about our Commanders. Well, Apple listened and did something. They sent us a postcard and I headed to an Apple store w/three bad power cords. In a few minutes I walked out with three brand new cords that are awesome! I will buy Apple computers forever, but Jeep...shame on you!!! Do something about this problem or those of us who have always have Jeeps will go elsewhere for our vehicles! I actually have a huge tarp that goes over the car anytime I hear it is going to rain. I have gone out at 2 am when I hear rain to cover it. Why... because after it gets wet too many times, the radio and all the electronics are going to go...just wait. So get big tarps before you have big problems!!! JEEPERS, CAN'T YOU FIX THIS PROBLEM and help us out here!!!!

Thanks for posting a message. I can't believe this major leaking problem has not been addressed by Chrysler. My radio is already gone. We have
to find the best two advocates to get this problem addressed and all Jeepers have to contact the advocate. We shouldn't have to keep a
tarp in the car to prevent leaking. Jeep should send us a tarp. They
haven't even admitted to the problem. I have a "Check Gas Cap" problem
as well. This is another common problem.
