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.

My window wouldn't go up with the auto up feature. Also, this morning, my highbeams wouldn't stay on, this must be something wrong with the switch

Commander V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,200 miles

The passenger side windows Automatic Window Regulator is faulty. It stops halfway up, sometimes goes backdown on its own. The thing is a hassle, I bought the car out of warranty and don't have the money to fix it. Needless to say I don't use it very often.
