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.

2009 Jeep Commander Owner Comments

Commander 4WD 8-cyl

  • 65,785 miles


I am the original owner of a 2009 Jeep Commander. In the fall of 2013 I purchased 4 new tires, and was told 2 valve stems were cracked so I had them replaced. On 9/3/14 on the wva turnpike at 70 mph the left rear warning light flashed and then counted down from 40lbs to 5lbs in 10 seconds. I was able to stop on a very narrow berm and called aaa to change the tire. On return home went to the tire store and was told the stem nut (one of the remaining ones) had broken off and the transmitter fell into the tire causing therapid air loss. On inspection on the remaining stem nut it was found to be cracked and split as iit was removed. The crack had corrosion indicating it had been there for some time. I have no doubt it could have broken off at speed. I believe the only reason I was able to keep the car under control was due the failure being a rear wheel. Noted on line other Jeep drivers with similar incidents. Obviously there should have been a safety notification if not an actual recall.
