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.

The engine has stalled on many occasions while driving on highway and other roads. This has occurred probably 20-30 times over the passed couple of years. Occasionally it will stall for a few seconds and then kick back in, but more often I will have to let the vehicle slow down and coast to a stop in the breakdown lane if there is one. I then put on the flashers, put it in park, turn off the key, wait a few seconds and start the vehicle. This may not happen again for several months or it may happen the next day. This is extremely dangerous and scares my wife and myself half to death. This past weekend while in the passing lane this occurred on the interstate with lots of traffic and we were lucky that it did not result in an accident. Researching online I have found that this is not uncommon with the Jeep Commander. There was a recall for this exact problem. (power train control module software) NHTSA campaign id # 08V203000, NHTSA action # EA07007. I called Chrysler and was basically told that our VIN# is not in the recall and they will not help. This is my wife's car but I usually do the driving.

I purchased this car in March of 07' or at least around that time, in late 07 beginning 08 my car started stalling for no reason I actually thought it was my knee hitting the key (I sit close but not that close) my husband kept thinking it was me as well, after several times of the car stalling we both realized it was the car doing it not my knee and we took straight to the dealer in Jan of 09. I advised the dealer all gears light up and the car will loose power or at least feel like it is and have no gas, I must shut the car off and restart before I am able to pull back on to the road. I was advised by world auto group in tinton falls NJ this was happening to allot of Commanders and the piece that is needed to be replaced is in back order due to this problem, they had my car for about 2 to 3 weeks in Jan of 09. Per the invoice cause is 21010336 shiftier mechanism/shift lever housing, automatic transmission - replace console shift (C) 2013wcdne 1 68004143af prndll bez - gear selector fc: Part # count (will fax invoice tomorrow) about a yr and half later the same problem is back, all gears light up while driving, recently I was coming home from work and was on the NJ turnpike at 5 O'clock (rush hour) all gears lit up and I had to get over as quick as possible before a truck or car hit me from behind since the speed limit is 65 mh. This is not a joke this is a life treating issue.. I called world Jeep as well as Chrysler headquarters right away advising this is a serious problem and needs to be addressed. The dealer and Chrysler can not advise why this life treating issue keeps happening to my car, they just want me to replace the same thing they did 1 1/2 yrs ago..
