  2. Thunking / Knocking on acceleration

    Problems / Dealer Service
    Searched what I could in the forums but couldn't find anything that sounded similar. When I accelerate I hear a thunk, thunk, thunk that gets faster until I reach 30ish mph when the thunking gets fast enough it is more of a vibration. I can not hear it outside the vehicle and it does not do it...
  3. Commander 3.7l V6 - Gearbox 'clang' changing from 1st to 2nd

    Problems / Dealer Service
    I have an intermittent (although regular) noise from the gearbox when it shifts from 1st to second. It only happens after being in park, and usually when cold, although not always. As the transmission shifts up the first time since being parked it smoothly shifts but there is another noise - a...

    Problems / Dealer Service
    Hey guys, I have an ongoing issue that I still haven't resolved. My engine makes a noise that the dealership can't diagnose. They replaced my lifters (6.1 lifters) and also exhaust manifolds and gaskets.

    Problems / Dealer Service
    I luv my Commander. It drives well and the Hemi is great, but I wanted to know if anyone else with a hemi is getting their feet burned up by the heat put out from the engine? Also it makes a loud clunking noise sometimes when I turn the wheel, not always though. The dealership said it was a...
  7. Front Suspension Noise

    Problems / Dealer Service
    Fairly new here..just got a used 2007 4.7L Commander with about 39K on it. I've had some issues with the front driver's side suspension making loud noises (esp when cold) when going over speed bumps, stopping, and hitting small bumps in the road. I still have the truck on a 100% paid 30 day...
  8. Name that broken part?

    Suspension / Lifts
    For the last few weeks I've noticed a groaning noise from the front driver-side tire. At first I thought it was low on air and I was getting some side tread road noise, but that wasn't it... The noise is totally gone when going around a left turn (weight is on the passenger side), and amplified...

I am the second owner of the vehicle. When driving around 70-75 mph, there is a faint roar that seems to be coming from the front of the...
  10. Sunroof Rattle Question??

    Problems / Dealer Service
    About 3 months ago, my sunroof was leaking, so I brought it into the dealership and after $500 they fixed the problem.
