Illustration for article titled Anyone Familiar with Jeep Commanders?

Some friends of mine have had a Commander for a couple years. It’s been having starter problems.


About a year ago the starter went out. Typical symptoms. They had it replaced.

A few months later it happened again. Everyone assumed they’d just gotten a did and so they had it replaced under warranty.


Then the second replacement failed a couple months later. Mechanic said it was probably just bad luck and replaced it under warranty.

That was about six months ago. Today the starter failed again and I had to go rescue them.


They’re ready to replace the truck, but I want to know if there’s anything y’all might know about possible fixes before they just ditch the thing. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
