There's been a lot of talk about unintended acceleration over the past few months, but what about "unintended movement?" This new phrase, coined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, applies to recent Chrysler products affected by a problem where drivers might be able to remove the key from the ignition before the vehicle is shifted into park, which could cause the vehicle to run away on its own. (We don't know why anyone would take the key out before putting the vehicle in park
Chrysler has just announced its newest wave of incentives. Those looking to snap up anything from the company's four brands can look forward to zero-percent financing courtesy of GMAC on most of its products. Chrysler models can be had at the low APR for 60 months or 1.9 percent for 72 months. If that doesn't float your boat, the company is also dishing out $3,000 in consumer cash.
The Office of Defects Investigation of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced the recall of some 24,177 late-model Chrysler Group vehicles over potentially faulty brakes. The problem effects the MY2010 Chrysler Sebring, Jeep Commander, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Liberty, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Nitro, and the 2009-2010 Dodge Ram.
Chrysler is recalling over 47,000 models, including the 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Commander, and Wrangler four-door that may have reversed wiring on the driver's airbag controller, a defect that may inhibit the airbag's deployment. Additionally, the 2002 and 2003 Jeep Libertys sold in New England and much of the Midwest are susceptible to a loss of lubrication in their front ball joints due to salt. The remedy for both recalls is a trip to the dealer, who will inspect and make any necessary repa
According to Bloomberg, the demise of the Jeep Commander is but a year away. Anonymous sources inside Chrysler told the news service that with a 43-percent decline this year, which follows declines every year since its first full year on the market, the Commander is surrendering its command.
Those of you rolling in a new 2007 or 2008 Jeep Commander or Grand Cherokee, take note. Chrysler is recalling 28,755 vehicles due to front-brake calipers made out of gray iron, instead of ductile iron, which could cause the clamper to fracture and cease halting forward progress.
The guys and gals at DaimlerChrysler haven't made an announcement yet, but according to sources within the United Auto Workers (UAW) and industry analysts, the size-16 shoebox on wheels from Jeep is on its way out.
The .38 caliber lenses of KGP have shot another vehicle wide out in the open, and this time the 2008 Jeep Liberty has found itself in the photog's sights. Caught without any camoflauge, we can clearly see the next Jeep Liberty is going to take its styling cues from the Commander, with very tall, vertical headlights up front flanking that familiar six-bar grille. We can also see that the Liberty embraces the Commander's boxy shape, giving the entire vehicle a more upright posture and likely incre
Anything you can do, I can do better... so sang Bingo and so says DaimlerChrysler to Ford. In the battle for customers, Ford had extended its 0% financing deal to sub-prime candidates for the first time last month. Now Chrysler is doing the same for those clamoring for a Commander. Zero-percent financing options are now available for up to 72 months on the 2006 Jeep Commander and Grand Cherokee, the Dodge Durango SUVs and Chrysler's family of minivans. Chrysler is also offering 1.9% for 60 month
The U.K. publication, 4x4 Magazine, has voted the Jeep Commander "4x4 Of The Year 2007". Apparently they've dropped the swimsuit competition. Seriously though, this is one ugly truck, but ugly can work for certain market segments and this is one of them. And who says a vehicle needs to look good to work right? Sure we'd prefer CX-7 styling, but when your truck is being flogged about the British byways and bogs, form takes a backseat to function and this new Commander apparently impressed.
