Notes: Whenever a new product is introduced, there's bound to be some problems. And man oh man, does the 2006 Commander have some problems.

It's the plight of the 1st-generation adopter: you get the newest and shiniest in exchange for a handful of issues that get ironed out in future versions. But what happens when that handful of issues becomes a bucketload? The 2006 Commander has quality control issues like the door handles breaking off and the sunroof leaking. But what's truly worrisome is the electrical problems like the vehicle shutting down unexpectedly, gauges going crazy or the cruise control having a mind of its own.

Bottom line: if you want a Jeep Commander, you're better off looking at a later model year.

When making hard turns my 2006 Jeep Commander will occasionally try to stall. Pressing the gas pedal down slowly, the engine acts like it is trying to stall, and speed does not increase. My example & definition of a hard turn: You're a car or two from a red light. Light turns green, you accelerate 20 feet or so and make a 90 degree turn. Happens on average at least once a month. Dealer says they "are aware of problems, but have no fix from Jeep". have heard this for a year.
