#41 of 91 Jeep Commander Water Leak
Apr 05, 2012 (8:53 am)
I seem to have the same problem as many of you. Bought a new JC 2007 and had no problems until last fall in 2011. Found standing water on the passenger side footwell. Heard water slushing around inside the cab. Noticed water dripping from the driver and passenger side hand rails mounted on the door frame near the windshield. Took it to a body shop who said it was a plugged drain from the sunroof. Things were ok for several months. Then again after a major rain storm with the JC sitting for several days outside (I was on vacation) I found an inch or more of standing water on the passenger side again. I have removed quarts of water from the footwell this time and I am looking for solutions. I have an appointment at a jeep repair center tomorrow. We'll see what they say.

I just had this conversation with the independent Jeep repair shop that I started going to when I discovered that the Jeep Chrysler dealer I purchased from in Norwalk-Georgetown CT had failed to file my warranty paperwork; I have exactly the same problem, i.e., had sunroof drains air hosed last year, the leaks stopped for several months, but then clogged again. However, this time the air hose didn't help; in fact, it may have dislocated the drains. That said, the Jeep Chrysler Solution to this problem is going to cost me anywhere from $600 - 1200 to repair; while, The independent service station that I go to explained that they believe that they will be able to repair the problem for less than $400. When I pick it up tomorrow for what will bring repairs to just over $10k (it only has 65k miles on it), I'll know if they were able to repair it. What's nice about the independent repair shop is that if they aren't able to repair it, they won't charge me for their time; the Jeep Chrysler Dealer will charge $175 just to look at it and maybe/maybe not repair it.

You have to wonder how Chrysler can get away with building a car that
leaks and causes many other problems. Thanks for the response and
maybe we can get lucky to get some support to have the problems
fixed. In the mean time we have to drive these pieces of junk.
#45 of 91 leaking problems

my jeep filled the floor boards with water for a year heard every excuse in the world from jeep they will tell you drain plugs are clogged or the sun roof pan has a crack in it but i found out the real problem from a old country shop that replaced the headliner. if youve tried these other fixes and it didnt work the problem is above the the doors. when they prefabricated the doors some of them have a little wave in the metal so the door is not sealing well. you can actually see the waive if you look. Apply a little silcone and that will seal it and stop the leak.

I thought I was reading my post I wrote several months ago. I am surprised that Jeep is trying to get away with this. I thought there
was hope when I first found this site. I think it's going to be an uphill
battle to get any response from Chrysler.
#48 of 91 Another 2006 Commander story...
May 22, 2012 (7:03 am)
I just hit 110k on our 2006 Commander. This morning, water all over the passenger side floor. Radio and Nav are completely fried. I am all for filing a class action. My name is Mike Kaplan and I can be found at www.NorthJerseyPads.com . I am willing to work toward filing a class action. If anyone is game, please contact me to work together. This is unacceptable.

I have a 2006 Commander and have been fighting this water problem for years. Of course it is now out of warranty and I have electrical problems. Front windows, side view mirrors and dome lights do not work. I am sure the problem is in the left roof post where there is probably a wiring harness that is close to the drain pipe for the sun roof....which really sounds like a dumb way to move the water from the sun roof...
I am sure that i am looking at a couple thousand dollar repair bill to track down an electrical short!
Please include me in any class action suit...there has got to be a lawyer with a Commander and similar problems...

The problem with my 2006 Jeep Commander is getting worse...I love The Windy City but I hate it when it rains...because when it does all I see is water on the driver's side floor...the CD's are stuck...the dashboard blinks, the truck jerks when I drive.....So I'm all in and for a CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT!!!!!
