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.

Engine stall while driving at 45mph. I was able to pull into grass and restart. System seemed to reset by turning key off, then back on. Nothing unique about day, sunny and 65 at 3pm est.

While driving our practically new family 2007 Jeep Commander the engine stalled, at highway speed (70 mph +). I pulled to the shoulder; and re-started the Jeep. I drove about 40 miles, and w/O warning the Jeep stalled again. It also stalled a few days later, as I drove at city speed (30 mph). Every thing appeared to be normal during these occurrences -- no warning lights or beeps. When my husband and I returned from the trip, we took the Jeep to the dealer. They kept the Jeep 6 days. The service department rep. Said the engineers were unable to duplicate the problem, that every thing checked out okay. The rep did say that Chrysler is aware of the problem but do not have a fix, however he was advised to release the Jeep to us. We objected to taking the Jeep and the dealer worked out an acceptable deal on another model. We bought the Jeep new, 3 months before the incident.

My husband and I had just bought our first new vehicle a 2007 Jeep Commander. It only had 65 mi. Or so on it when we bought it. I absolutely loved it. Then all of a sudden when I was pulling into a parking spot with my 20 month old little girl my car stalled. I almost hit a Lincoln Navigator! I went to the car dealership and they said they couldn't find a problem. That was at 1400 miles! then at 3700 mi. I was idling at a red light and my car starting shaking really bad! then I accidentally put my car in 4th gear and then it wouldn't go back into drive. It has been an awful experience owning this Commander! the car dealership also told me the seats were stain resistant and they are not by any means I have taken my car up close to 15 times to have apple juice taken out of my "stain proof" cloth seats. I would not recommend this car to anyone!!!!!

We purchased a 2007 Jeep Commander on Feb.10. It has 2,000 miles on it. Last week, the engine "threw a rod" through the side of the engine requiring a new engine to be installed. It was the result of road rainwater being taken into the engine through the air intake. I am having to file a claim with my insurance company to replace the engine. The water on ther road was minimal. I continue to see Jeep advertisements on television showing the Jeep Commander driving thru water... the consumer needs to be aware that the vehicle cannot be driven thru water...
