Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED THE 2007 JEEP COMMANDER WITH THE 5.7 HEMI IN SPRING 2013 AND A FEW MONTHS LATER COMING TO A STOP IT JUST SHUT OFF. AT FIRST I THOUGHT MAYBE SOME WATER HAD GOTTEN INTO THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT SINCE IT WAS RAINING AND SHORTED SOMETHING. STARTED BACK UP AND THOUGHT ALL WAS FINE. WELL RECENTLY IT HAS BEEN HAPPENING MORE OFTEN, WHETHER IT IS WET OR DRY OUT AND AT ANY SPEED OR WHETHER THE CRUISE CONTROL IS ON OR OFF. IT ALSO SEEMS TO TRY TO SHUT DOWN WHILE FEATHERING THE GAS PEDAL AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS FROM ACCELERATING TO COAST. ON ONE OCCASION THIS SUMMER AT HIGHWAY SPEED PULLING OUR CAMPER IT SHUT DOWN AND I HAD TO COAST TO A STOP ALONG THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY TO RESTART. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE. I HAVE CHILDREN, AS I AM SURE MANY HERE WITH THE SAME COMPLAINT DO. *TR

Summary of Complaint

Heat shield on the muffler system. I was towing a boat up north and started to smell a burning smell. At first I thought it was an electrical issue, but couldn't identify anything. So I drove another 3 to 4 miles and the back floor boards was smoking filling the car with smoke. I pulled over and the carpet was melting from the heat of the muffler/exhaust under the back seat. When it was inspected the heat shield was not over the area that almost caught fire. This is an issue that Jeep is more than aware of and it's an issue that only happens when these vehicles are towing. They run extremely hot towing and the heat shield is defective. Their are other's that have had this happen and there's no recall! My car is equipped with tow package too and it was turned on before it's even a question. I got a call about a year ago about a family friend was towing a pop up camper and their commander caught on fire and was a total loss! Thank God no one was injured. There needs to be an investigation with people who have commander's.

Summary of Complaint

My car will act like it's out of gas/convulsions, dies suddenly, and acts like it's going to die when driving. Check engine light has come on sometimes. I have only had the vehicle around one year and have had it worked on 4 times for the issue. Still isn't fully resolved. It's was the obvious issue from the start so probably an issue before I bought the vehicle. I was referred to the dealership and they quoted me 600 just for the inspection. I just paid 3000 dollars to have it fixed. Still not fixes.

Summary of Complaint

I have a jeep commander 2007 limited. According to your recall dates my VIN number doesn’t fall within those dates for my car to have the recall. Although my jeep is completely stallling out while driving 69 mph, I mean loss of all electrical inside my jeep. Power steering fails, engine shuts off, I am lucky enough that my brakes still work but who is to say that won’t happen again. So when looking my VIN number up seeing that this is ONE of the recalls, my VIN number ISNT part of the vehicles that was affected by the recall but I’m still encountering the SAME issue as the recall. I’ve taken it to my mechanic he cannot seem to find the problem. I need help I just bought this car! It’s our family car so it’s not only affecting me it’s my entire family. My husband, my two year older and my elderly parents.

Summary of Complaint

INTERMITTENT STARTING ISSUE. THIS IS MY ONLY VEHICLE, I HAVE 2 KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND NEED TO GET TO IMPORTANT APPOINTMENTS. I START MY 2007 JEEP COMMANDER, I GET TO WHERE I AM GOING, WHEN I GO TO RESTART MY VEHICLE IT SOMETIMES DOESN'T WANT TO START. IT WILL CRANK OVER JUST REFUSES TO START. I HAVE HAD MULTIPLE MECHANICS LOOK AT MY JEEP AND NO ONE CAN FIGURE OUT REASONING TO THIS INTERMITTENT STARTING ISSUE. I HAVE PUT SO MUCH MONEY AND WORK INTO MY JEEP FOR IT TO KEEP DOING THE SAME PROBLEM. THE LAST MECHANIC I TOOK IT TOO SEEN CODE ERROR IN THE DISPLAY WINDOW ON DASH 'TRANSMISSION OVER TEMP' WHEN HE HAD TRIED TO START IT. IT DOES NOT DO THIS EVERY TIME THE WILL BE DAYS IT CONTINUOUSLY STARTS EVERY TIME THEN THERE ARE DAYS THAT IT'S INTERMITTENT, AND DAYS IT WILL NOT START AT ALL. THE MECHANIC STARTING LOOKIN ON JEEP FORUMS ABOUT THIS ISSUE THERE ARE TONS OF REPORTS OF THE SAME ISSUE BUT NO SOLUTION. MY MECHANIC SAID JEEP IS AWARE OF THE ISSUE BUT THERE IS NO RECALLS ON THIS ISSUE. HE SAID HE BELIEVES IT IS A PROGRAMMING ISSUE THE CAR THINKS THE TRANSMISSION IS OVER TEMP SO IT SENDS SIGNAL TO THE ENGINE THAT IT'S TOO HOT AND THE ENGINE SENDS SIGNAL TO THE FUEL PUMP THAT THERE IS A TEMPERATURE ISSUE DO NOT TURN ON. WHEN IT CRANKS OVER IT ACTS AS IF IT ISN'T GETTING ANY FUEL AT ALL. I HAVE PURCHASED A NEW FUEL PUMP AND SOME OTHER PARTS THE ISSUE IS HAPPENING. I BOUGHT THE JEEP IN APRIL OF 2020 OFF OF ANOTHER OWNER, THE ISSUE DIDN'T START WITH ME UNTIL JANUARY OF 2021, THE PREVIOUS OWNER MENTIONED ANYTHING ABOUT THIS HAPPENING TO THEM WHEN I ASKED THEM. CAN SOMETHING PLEASE BE DONE ABOUT THIS ISSUE SO MYSELF AND THOUSANDS OF OTHER 2007 JEEP COMMANDER OWNERS CAN GET BACK TO ENJOYING OUR VEHICLES???? THANK YOU FOR TAKING YOUR TIME AND READING THIS COMPLAINT.

WE HAVE BEEN HAVING ISSUES WITH OUR JEEP JUST SUDDENLY TURNING OFF. VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION SPECIALLY SINCE WE HAVE OUR KIDS IN THE JEEP WITH US WHEN IT HAPPENS. WE COULD BE DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY AND THE JEEP WILL JUST SHUT OFF AND WILL NOT SHOW NO PROBLEM CODES. THIS HAPPENS AT ANY SPEED AND NO SPEED. WE TURN THE JEEP ON A LET IT WARM UP. ABOUT 2 MINUTES LATER IT SHUTS OFF. WE HAVE TO TURN IT BACK ON. THEN WE WOULD BE DRIVING AT SPEED BELOW 30 MPH AND TURNS OFF. AND MOST DANGEROUSLY ON THE FREEWAY WHEN IT JUST TURNS OFF AND WE HAVE TO PULL OVER AND THIS IS HARD SPECIALLY BECAUSE THE STEERING WHEEL IS SO STIFF. HOPEFULLY JEEP/CHRYSLER CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

I BOUGHT THIS JEEP 10-4-19. SINCE I'VE OWNED THE VEHICLE IT HAS STALLED MULTIPLE TIME WHILE GOING DOWN THE ROAD. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPEN WAS WITH MY 18 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER. I FIRST THOUGHT SHE JUST DID SOMETHING WRONG AND DIDN'T THINK MUCH OF THE ISSUE. UNTIL I WAS TAKING MY SON TO A BASEBALL CAMP IN UT KNOXVILLE. IT DIED ON US TWICE WHILE GOING DOWN THE INTERSTATE. LUCKILY, I WAS ABLE TO PULL OFF THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. IT TOOK US ABOUT 5-10 MINUTES AND IT FINALLY WOULD START BACK UP AND RUN NORMAL. ON THE TRIP HOME IT RAN FINE UNTIL WE CROSSED OVER THE GEORGIA STATE LINE AND IT DIED ONE MORE TIME. I HAVE REPLACED THE BATTERY. I READ SOMEWHERE THAT IT WAS A GROUNDING ISSUE SO I PULLED THE GROUND WIRES OFF TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE TOUCHING METAL. THIS HASN'T HELPED AND THE VEHICLE WILL STILL STALL WHILE DRIVING OR AT STOP LIGHTS. I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY KIDS TO DRIVE BUT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE I'VE READ ABOUT. I'M AFRAID TO LET MY KIDS OR WIFE DRIVE THIS CAR. I DON'T HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY ANOTHER VEHICLE. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED CONSIDERING THIS SEEMS TO BE A KNOWN ISSUE. I'VE STARTED DOCUMENTING THE TIMES IT STALLS TO SEE IF THERE IS A PATTERN. 11/7/19 8 PM IN TRAFFIC, 11/12/19 8 AM IN TRAFFIC, 11/20/19 LOWS PARKING LOT, 12/2/19 10:17 PM AT RED LIGHT - THEN AGAIN 10:29 AT ANOTHER RED LIGHT DOWN THE ROAD.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING STRAIGHT IN THE FAST LANE ON THE HIGHWAY AT AROUND 65 MPH, MY VEHICLE SUDDENLY SHUT OFF WITH NO WARNING AND I NOTICED THAT ALL DASHBOARD WARNING LIGHTS CAME ON. FORTUNATELY, THERE WAS A FAST-LANE SHOULDER THAT I WAS ABLE TO STEER IT ON, OR I MIGHT HAVE BEEN KILLED BY ONCOMING TRAFFIC. VEHICLE WOULD NOT RE-START SO I DISCONNECTED THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE, WAITED A FEW MINUTES AND RE-CONNECTED IT AND THEN THE VEHICLE RE-STARTED BUT RAN VERY ROUGH. I PROCEEDED ALONG THE SHOULDER TO TRY AND GET OFF THE HIGHWAY, BUT THE VEHICLE SHUT DOWN AGAIN. I REPEATED THE SAME PROCESS AND IT AGAIN RE-STARTED AND I MANAGED TO DRIVE HOME ON BACK ROADS AT 40 MPH. THIS HAS HAPPENED ON AT LEAST THREE OTHER OCCASIONS, BUT THE INCIDENTS OCCURRED MANY MONTHS APART, WHICH MADE ME THINK IT WAS A ONE-OFF SITUATION. I HAVE SINCE RESEARCHED THIS ISSUE ON THE INTERNET AND HAVE LEARNED THAT MANY OTHER PEOPLE HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO THEM. I THINK THIS IS A TRAGEDY IN THE MAKING IF CHRYSLER DOES NOT ADDRESS THIS DEFICIENCY BY ISSUING AN IMMEDIATE RECALL. I ALSO REQUEST THAT A CHRYSLER DEALERSHIP INSPECT MY VEHICLE AT NO COST TO ME. YOUR PROMPT RESPONSE TO THIS URGENT MATTER WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
