2006 Jeep Commander 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


We bought this for my wife to haul our new baby around. We were quite happy for the first year, but then it started needing more and more repairs. The frequency and severity of the repairs has increased over time, and the warranty is about to run out. We no longer trust the vehicle, and are nervous about what happens after the warranty expires. Sadly we feel we have no choice but to dump it. issues: 4WD system solenoid failure, dead battery after 1 year, brake rotors warped at 25K, stalling issues, glitchy climate control, tranny doesn't shift correctly when cold, transmission seal leak, numerous tire leaks, AC no longer gets cold, door latch fell off, etc, etc....

Best Features

Overall this is a nice preforming vehicle when not considering reliability. The safety features saved us when we hit a patch of black ice going down hill on the third day of ownership. The 4WD system worked beautifully through unplowed roads with 1 ft of snow.

Worst Features

reliability! reliability! reliability! A crappy reliable car is better than a stellar performing unreliable car. Design car seats so rear head rests don't block child seats. Ditch third row and add cargo room Hate the stadium seating. We get Ill when riding in the back and cant's see
