20k miles service and problems (started to worry about the quality)
I just took my Commander from the 20k service, I gave them a list of 7 problems when I submitted it!!! after this service I started to get little worried about the quality of the Commander and what will happen after the warranty ends in 15k miles from now!! What you guys think about this?
Here is the list, and the action done for each point in blue and comment in red
1- Clunk sound and rattling in the steering wheel and shafts while driving on sharp and small pumps and turning to the right by around 90 degrees
They said the steering rack and pinion need to be changed but they don't have it on the shelf, so they placed the order from abroad and will replaced once they receive it)
(I noticed this sine it was new !! is it manufacturing defect?!)
2- Roughness during acceleration
(they changed the front axle isolator mount and the front stabilizer bar bushings, it solved the problem)
(Isn't it too soon for the isolator and bushings to get damaged?!!)
3- Both side mirrors are shaking over 120 kph
(they said the left one needs to be replaced and under order as well)
(the right-hand side was changed too at 10k service, and also started to shake as well!!,,,, will I keep changing it every now and then !!)
4- Audio unit bezel popped off
(they will change the bezel and its under the order as well)
5- C/T button on the dash does not work correctly, get stuck inside.
(they will change the button and its under the order as well)
(its the one which is mostly used ,, but its too early to break after 9 months!!)
6- Rear windows are not functioning correctly, some times stops and don’t move. Left rear window stuck (does not move totally)
(they changed both rear window regulators, its working fine now)
(this is a common problem I know, but I hope it will solve it for long time, otherwise it will be costly to change it)
7- Button on park brake lever popped out.
(they will change the lever and its under the order as well)
(too early too !!)
