A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I am writing to express my concern regarding an engine problem with my 2007 Jeep Commander, that causes the engine to stall, and all power to shut down and the engine to completely shut off. While at first this problem was simply an inconvenience, I soon learned how dangerous this problem actually is. I was on a highway and I went to pass another car, mid-pass my engine stalled and I lost all power with another car coming at me head-on. Thankfully the other car was able to stop and we avoided a head-on collision at highway speed, but the outcome could have been very different. The stalling has been an ongoing issue with my Jeep now for at least two years, with no resolution to the problem in sight. I have followed all suggestions like not having a key chain and only using he key in my ignition with no change in the frequency of the stalling. It seems a bit ridiculous that there has been no solution to this very dangerous problem. A case was opened by Chrysler in January regarding my 2007 Jeep Commander stalling without warning. The stalling continues to be a very dangerous and unpredictable problem for me. In my last communication I was assured that my Jeep would be fixed when the part became available, I have heard nothing since January. Not only am I concerned about the safety of myself and others when I drive my car, I am also concerned about the additional stress this flaw in manufacturing is putting on the engine of my car. It's extremely fortunate that no one has been seriously injured due to the stalling problem to date, but I fear it is just a matter of time until someone's car stalls at the wrong moment and they are unable to avoid tragedy. I'm hoping someone can help we get resolution to this dangerous issue as Chrysler has done nothing so far.
