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.

Car stalls when driving down the road. The drnp dash lights all light up at the same time and the car shuts down for a couple seconds, then it resumes. It has happened several times randomly in the past. Today, it stalled 3 times on the highway on my home from work. I had to pull over and restart the car. The check engine light finally came on today. The seatbelts also have broken several times. I've replaced 2 separate seatbelt cases (the outer cover) in the past year. The middle, second row seatbelt is locked up and currently unusable. When I bought the car, the first time I put up the 3rd row seat, the seatbelt was crushed by the seat and broken. And, the back seatbelt is currently broken again (which I have only used the 3rd row seats twice since owning the car), I plan to have them repair it again when I take the car in to get the check engine light checked :(

Commander 6-cyl

I have had my 07 Jeep Commander (3.6 V6) since January 2008. I have notice numerous times while driving from a complete stop, that my vehicle will lose power and start to sputter when I try to apply the gas and the car moves very slow as in less than 20mph. This has happened to me numerous times and makes me very uncomfortable driving knowing that my car can stop and leave me vulnerable to being rear-ended at intersections or common stops. I notice when this happens that my vehicle cluster displays "service park assist" and the service park assist light comes on uncontrollably and at the same time my dash/ cluster also displays ( [P][R][N][D] ) all at once as if the vehicle does not know what gear it is in. This is not acceptable for a vehicle that is supposed to provide a safe driving experience. I also find it very disappointing that numerous people all over the United States and internet/ forums all have this problem and Chrysler tries to narrow it down to a select year. Model. And engine. My vehicle has the same issues as the previous recall for the 2007 4.7 V8 engines, yet Chrysler ignores the community of Jeep Commander owners with the 3.6 V6 engine that have the same problem. There is also a tsb (18-004-09 rev. A) that describes the clunking and hesitation you feel when trying to get up to speed. This is not something a customer should have to pay for. My vehicle is a 2007 with less than 40,000 miles on it and I should be able to enjoy my vehicle safely during this time period. Another problem is that the vehicle does this at random so you can't just take it to the dealership and show them the problem. I'm sure they would gladly take my money and let me spend 1000+ dollars for new parts, but I have an 8yr/80,000 mile warranty purchased from Chrysler and will not pay for diagnostic after diagnostic to try and replicate a problem that is clearly there...

Was driving to work going about 60 mph and motor just shuts off. Had to pull off to the side of the road and turn off the key and tried to restart engine. It didn't start on the first try had to turn key off and tried again it started. It did the same thing when I was going home that morning had to do the same thing as above to get it started again. This is very dangerous I didn't have power steering or brakes luckily I wasn't on the freeway.

This has happened to me. I am a mother, wife, daughter. The bad thing of this situation is that I had this replaced once before I had 31,505 miles on it and the ems electric transmission shift module had to be replaced. 4 yrs later mileage at 82,000 miles the same part has to be replaced. I have contacted Chrysler and all they can say we are sorry there is nothing I can do for you. This part is no longer under warranty and informed that the part (68021352) was not included in a recall. This malfunctions has caused me to no longer feel safe in my car. I don't want to drive my car with my daughter in it. With out warning this has happened one to many times. This part should be recalled when I had the vehicle serviced back in 2008 I paid $100 now today when I had it repaired it cost $1000. Funny isn't it that over 4 yrs this part has doubled in price. And the mechanic at Chrysler says to me oh yeah I've seen this alot on this model.

My wife was driving to church with my daughter and the vehicle stalled without warning for the 7th or 8th time since we bought the vehicle. There was heavy traffic at 6pm and it scared her and my 9 yr old daughter to tears. This vehicle is a real danger to my family and the lives of others. It does not start at this point.

Slowing down at a traffic light and the vehicle stalled. Again coming close to causing a major accident because of so much traffic., the vehicle would not start again for about 30 minutes cause grid lock and chaos. All I could here was a clicking sound when trying to start it. This happened multiple times after that and the last time I ended up having to steer into a steep ditch to avoid rear ending an 18 wheeler. I had my kids with me at the time. I contacted the dealer and got no help.

  • 92,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Commander. The contact stated that while driving 70 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was restarted and driven 25 more miles as the failure recurred three additional times. The vehicle was taken to a dealer for diagnosis who stated that the failure was possibly caused by a spark plug malfunction. The repair was performed and fifteen minutes later, the failure recurred. The dealer then advised that a coil could have been defective but they were unsure, as they could not replicate the failure. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnosis and after five weeks of research, the mechanic was unable to locate or diagnose the malfunction. The manufacturer was notified but offered no assistance. The failure mileage was 92,000 and the current mileage was 93,000.

As of June 8th 2011 I bought my Jeep used with approximately 42000 miles on it soon after it started having filling issues then for a while the issue ceased now about a month before date of stall listed above it started with the same filling issues except worse now causing it to not want to shift into gears as normal car would, kinda jerking in between shifts from different speeds and RPM increase and decrease. It has stalled on me twice now. The first time on the interstate at 70 mph with my 3 kids and pregnant wife in the car causing all power functions to be lost and we almost got ran over by a transfer truck trying to get to the shoulder of the road. I had it look at and the throttle body and intake cleaned of carbon deposited and now today June 12th 2012 it stalled again getting off the interstate heading to my work. Still filling high and low and stalling and jerking between the natural shifting of the transmission.
