Ask TCC: What's With the Seats in My 2007 Jeep Commander?

March 8, 2010

The 2007 Jeep Commander can be one luxurious, well-equipped, and comfortable SUV. In our review of the current 2010 Commander, we praise its front seats for support and space.

At least one owner we know is having problems with their Commander. TheCarConnection reader Bob Schumann wrote to Ask TCC, wondering if it's it possible to get a vehicle with two different front seats. Or has there been a mistake?"We purchased a 2007 Jeep Commander and the two front seats are not aligned. The driver's seat is several inches above the passenger's seat. It is uncomfortable for my wife to sit so low. Would it be possible to raise the passenger seat even with the driver seat? If a new seat or automatic seat is needed we would be happy to pay for it."

In this case, it's not difficult to see why the seats in this Commander are low. Chrysler's public relations team tracked down a product specialist in the Jeep brand for the answer:

"This customer must have a base Commander. That model has a power driver seat only. Both the [2007] Limited and Overland had driver eight-way/passenger four-way power seats. The driver seat also has memory feature on these models.

"I'm not aware of any way to retrofit the four-way power passenger seat to a base 2007 Commander, as there is no wiring present for the power seat track."

Each week at TheCarConnection, we get dozens of emails from readers looking for answers to their car questions. "Is this normal?" "Did I pay too much?" "What's the best car for me?" While we can answer some of those through our full reviews, TrueCar pricing, and comparisons, we're also looking for questions directly from you. If you need to know something about your current car or your next new vehicle, email us here at feedback (at) thecarconnection [dot] com. If we're able to help, you'll see your question posted here.
