CarComplaints.com Notes: Whenever a new product is introduced, there's bound to be some problems. And man oh man, does the 2006 Commander have some problems.

It's the plight of the 1st-generation adopter: you get the newest and shiniest in exchange for a handful of issues that get ironed out in future versions. But what happens when that handful of issues becomes a bucketload? The 2006 Commander has quality control issues like the door handles breaking off and the sunroof leaking. But what's truly worrisome is the electrical problems like the vehicle shutting down unexpectedly, gauges going crazy or the cruise control having a mind of its own.

Bottom line: if you want a Jeep Commander, you're better off looking at a later model year.

problem #4

Commander Limited V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


When driving down the road all the dash lights will start flickering on and off. (Headlights will do the same). I bought this limited, leather interior, luxury vehicle with hopes of not having a lot of problems. The vehicle drives nice but cosmetic and electrical problems. NEEDS TO BE RECALLED!

I called about this hoping it had a recall and even though my vehicle has ALL the problems listed under recalls my VIN number does not match their records.

Commander Limited Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 123,000 miles

Auto shop can't seem to diagnose the problem. This has since caused our hvac fan assembly to burn out. There is no rhyme or reason for the problem. It will randomly start flashing the lights, warning signals and all dash lights for no reason. Can we say lemon?
