looking at a 2006

Gentlemen:

Looking at a 2006 Commander 4x4 with the 4.7. I noticed in the carfax it stated 6 months after purchase the "Engine/powertrain computer/module reprogrammed" was "reprogrammed"
Is this a basic service item on these vehicles? I have done alittle research and noticed a stalling problem on some vehicles. Is the stalling issue related to the module reprogramming? Is it something i should be concerned about?
Any worries about a Commander with 110,000 miles. Seems to be in nice shape. Its a one owner so it can't be all bad.
Thanks for any info you'd care to share.

Northstar

Try to find an 08. Higher output engine and enter performance when you install a chip. I have an 07 and I'm plagued with the lack of power forever. Also I think it was a recall if I'm not mistaking.

I wouldn't be concerned about the reprogramming as there were some TSBs for reprogramming to correct or improve performance.

I got my 2006 in the early summer this year. There were a bunch of recalls on it. They were all related to software flashing and "reprogramming".

Definitely nothing to be concerned about. The only ones who can do a "reprogramming" of the vehicles computers are authorized jeep dealers as far as I know, so I wouldnt worry about it at all... Good luck.
