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.

2006 Jeep Commander Owner Comments

Commander 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I own a Jeep Commander and it has died on me for now reason now more than 7 times. I was at a stop light, sometimes on the freeway the car just stops. I step on the gas and the car doesn't move the engine shuts off and the steering wheel hardens and doesn't steer. I took it into the Jeep dealer where I leased it from and they found nothing wrong with it. They told me that there are other complaints with other Commander owners but they have no fix to it. They even told me that when they find what's wrong with someone else's Commander they would call me so I guess they still don't know what's wrong this had been happening now a lot lately. I am going to take it back again to the dealer ship and see what they say. The passenger air bag light comes on also every now and then it comes on and stays on for like 5 to 10 minutes then goes off.
