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.

Commander

  • 77,000 miles
The "prnd" gears lit up with boxes around them - the "service parking assist brake" came on as well.... I could not accelerate at all after the light turned green - had to turn on hazard lights and turn vehicle off and back on - worked fine for 10 minutes or so and then the check engine light came on, it has been on ever since. Called the dealership about this they asked me to bring it in for diagnosing, but hesitant because of all the same kind of stories that I have read on this issue. Going to have to give in though, this is a major safety concern of mine now... have not seen a recall for this even though someone can certainly have a devastating accident, not willing to take that chance... love my vehicle, but now I hate the aggravation that this is causing.. with all the horror stories with the same sort of issue you would think that Jeep would take care of this, I guess that this is why they discontinued the Commander?

Over the past few weeks while driving the vehicle will flash a warning saying service park assist system. When this happens the gear display on the dash prnd will all 4 get circled and flash and then as you are accelerating you can feel the vehicle lose speed. You can no longer accelerate the vehicle and have to coast off the road. Once you stop and shift to park then back to drive it will reset and then allow you to accelerate. I was going 65 on the freeway when this happened last and this is a major safety issue. For about the past 30,000-40,000 K miles we have had issues with it shifting properly and every time we took it to the dealer they can never re create the issue. Now we are receiving this warning and it actually stops accelerating on its own. It is happening more and more. We took it to the dealer since this warning now came on and they said they have never heard of it, they couldn't re create it, that it has nothing to do with the shifting and to turn off our park assist system so it doesn't happen. We are attempting a different dealer today but first thing they said is they never hear of this either. So comforting!

The vehicle stalled while being driven the first time the same month it was purchased. Took it to the dealer I bought it from who said they couldn't find a code and sent it back to me. It has stalled numerous other times in the 5 months my wife and I have been driving it including on interstate highways, mountain roads and in our neighborhood. Just suddenly stops running. Have to bring the vehicle to a stop. Turn key to off position and restart. No problems re-starting. Have taken it back to the dealer two more times with the same result (no code; no work; sent home). Called Chrysler who also said they couldn't help.

Commander

  • 46,000 miles
Purchased this vehicle used about a year ago and has been having issues for about 5 months on about 20 different occasions, and seems to be worse in stop and go traffic or at a complete stop. While driving it will stall and act as if it is going to die. It seems to be worse at a complete stop but has been gradually doing more while driving. It has completely shut down three different times. Usually, the check engine light comes on. Has started doing it now at accelerated speeds. Replaced spark plugs with no change. Took to auto zone and read nothing on their computer. It seems others are having this same issue and I cant believe there has not been a recall for this since it would cause a safety issue. It does not seem that the problem has been diagnosed correctly yet from reading the other complaints and Jeep should have to be made to look into this.

My boyfriend and I were driving home from dinner and about half way home the car suddenly stopped accelerating and the speed dropped from 70 mph to 40 and kept slowing down. We had to pull over and turn the car off and then back on. The car has done this several times since and a light comes on that says "service park assist". I have read up on this year, make and model and have found that this is a very common issue that has not been dealt with! this is also a very dangerous issue. I also found that it has nothing to do with the "park assist" but rather the transmission in the truck and that many have failed well before 50,000 miles but shortly after Jeep's 35,000 mile warranty. Jeep did not cover my car because I bought it used which terminated the warranty because I was not the original owner. I am very disappointed - this is my first Jeep - and I have wanted a Jeep for years. The car still decelerates at times - I can be in traffic or pulling off from a stop or turning a corner and all of a sudden it is not shifting or accelerating. I can't afford a new car right now but am concerned about my family's safety. Please read up on the many articles and comments from people about this problem and save lives!!! with so many complaints and close-call accidents I would think that since it is 2011 something would have been done by now!

While driving at slow speed such as slowing to stop or taking off from a dead stop the truck stalls and has to be put in park and restarted. This happens quite frequently, and when driving on interstates when trying to accelerate the truck also stalls or has a power failure where it almost feels like it its a governed speed and the engine won't let you speed up. The computer now is having issues saying that the engine coolant is too cold, thought the thermostat is working fine as well as the gauges inside the truck. The computer is also giving a code of an error with the barometric pressure.

Commander

  • 52,000 miles
The contact owned a 2007 Jeep Commander. The contact was driving approximately 35 mph on a curved road when the engine stalled without warning. The contact was able to restart the vehicle after several attempts. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop where an oil change was performed and the contact was advised to have the vehicle inspected by a dealer. The failure recurred and the vehicle was towed to the dealer where an engine module was replaced. The failure persisted and the vehicle was towed back to the dealer where several unknown repairs were made but to no avail. The vehicle was towed back to the dealer where the contact was awaiting a full diagnosis. The manufacturer was contacted and advised that because they were unaware if the independent mechanic made any repairs to the vehicle, they were unable to assist. The contact stated that the failure occurred before the vehicle was taken to the independent mechanic. The vehicle was not further repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 52,000.
