Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Drain tubes leak into vehicle thru upper hand grab and under dash due to routing of tubes... they clog very easy and vehicle owners cannot see them or have knowledge of them until a heavy rain leaves the car flooded. Most likely eroding wires under dash and causing mold in carpet.

The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Commander. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the vehicle suddenly stalled without warning. The contact was able to restart by turning the key back and starting the engine. The failure occurred on an intermittent basis. The vehicle was inspected by an independent mechanic who informed the contact that they were unable to diagnose the failure. The manufacturer was contacted who offered no assistance. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 102,000. The consumer also stated the driver's seat tilts backward on its own. The remote unlock and lock buttons only worked on occasion and finally water would enter the vehicle when it rained. Updated 03/09/11 updated 06/16/11 updated 06/23/11

I have owned my 2007 Jeep Commander for about ten months now. The problem I have is when my knee bumps the bottom of the ignition key (turning it to the left, & shutting the vehicle off) which is unusually located at the bottom portion of the console (I guess this vehicle wasn't meant for tall people). When this happens the vehicle immediately shuts off, causing the power steering to shut off as well. This has happened four times now. The last time it happened was Thursday, June 12, 2008 around 11:15 am. I was driving my 1 year old son to the babysitters house. My knee bumped the key as I was approaching a turn, shutting off the vehicle/power steering, so I kept going straight, and nearly crashed. Luckily, I slammed the brakes and stopped just in time. After this incident I realized how serious the problem really is. Although I have to drive it at the moment (backwards, so I can't afford to trade it in), I have become leery and uncomfortable with my Commander because of what could happen to my child, me, or someone else if (or rather when) this happens again. I am now constantly trying to stay aware of where my right knee is at all times. Instead of reporting this to my dealership (I know they can't do anything about design flaws). I have decided to go straight to the NHTSA. Please help!
