Was driving through town with no problem. Road turns into highway and speed limit is 65 mph. Tried to increase speed from 35 mph (town speed limit) and vehicle started slowing down and bucking and hesitating. Pulled off road and turned engine off for a few minutes. Could not increase speed to more than 25 mph. Towed home. Left alone for an hour and retried. Still have same problem. Tried this morning, still same problem. Will need to tow it to a garage. Check engine light also came on.

Commander 4WD 8-cyl

  • 10,000 miles
Approximately 3 months after purchasing my Jeep Commander, it stalled with no warning. All the trucks lights lit up and the power steering would not work. I was able to start it back up and drive. I took it to the dealer and they were unable to help me as they could not recreate the issue. Since then it has happened an additional 2-3 times with the dealership still unable to help me. All times the truck has stalled out and I have been able to restart and drive away. The last time being in September of 2012 while driving on a freeway at approximately 65 mph.
