Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The Chrysler Crossfire has a nasty habit of having the back window fall out. While there are reports of this happening to every model year (2004-08), the 2005 has it worst. Naturally this problem tends to happen beyond the standard 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty leaving owners to pick up the tab along with the shattered pieces of glass.

2005 Chrysler crossfire limited convertible - rear window glass came unattached falling onto area behind front seats. Top still slightly attached, thus preventing glass from falling onto driver/passenger area headrests. Car is garaged, outside only during driving. Chrysler refuses to accept responsibility for an apparent manufacturer's defect occurring in many of these cars (note numerous reports of this on several websites).

Add me to the list as many others have a problem with the 2005 Chrysler Crossfire convertible rear glass falling out of the car because of poor workmanship. It was glued in with no other support and the glass just came loose sitting in the carport. This seems to be a major problem with this model car. I have been in touch with Chrysler service department and they refuse to do anything about this problem. It presents a safety hazard and I am registering a formal complaint to at least have this investigated for its potential danger.

I purchased a 2005 Chrysler crossfire convertible on 5/9/11 from an individual. After purchasing the vehicle, I decided to search the internet to see if there was a forum for crossfire owners. I did find a great site and started perusing. I came across a thread of other owners of the 2005 crossfire convertible who were having problems with the glass window separating from the canvas. The problem typically occurred in the "high heat" states I.e., Florida and Texas and typically surfaced after the 36 K mileage mark. Since I live in Florida, and this was a Florida car, I immediately went to my garage and took a close look at the back window. Upon casual observation, it wasn't obvious, but once I ran my finger along the edge of the glass and the canvas, lo and behold, it was separating!!! I was shocked that this was happening!!! long story short, after taking it to my local dealer, I was told that there was not a repair that could be done and the top would need to be replaced at a cost of $ $2,200. The technician said that he would contact Chrysler to see if they would be willing to offer any "goodwill" towards the replacement. Well, no "goodwill" offered by Chrysler :( bottom line, I need a safe vehicle so I am having the top replaced at my cost. My local dealership is fantastic and they have offered to discount the replacement by 15% which I thought showed good faith on their part. It seems to me, with so many owners having this problem, an investigation into why this is happening needs to happen. This is a safety issue as well as an integrity issue of this particular vehicle. Someone needs to step up and represent the owners of these 2005 Chrysler convertible and say "yes, this is a defect and Chrysler will need to compensate fairly for the replacement of these tops!!" the car I purchased was always garaged and the top is in like new condition ~ the glass delamination is a defect, not caused by wear & tear. Chrysler needs to step up to the plate!

I own a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire convertible. The rear window fell out for no apparent reason. This is a major safety issue and should be recalled by Chrysler. If window came out during a crash, the glass window could seriously injure the driver or passenger. A flying sheet of glass. Chrysler should be held accountable to fix this defect. There are numerous complaints on line about this. The other thing is the cost of repair. This can only be fixed by replacing the entire top for $2,000. This is ridiculous. There should be a class action suit on this issue. I guess Chrysler will wait for someone to lose their life before taking action. Buy american, what a joke!!!

We have a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire, my wife was driving down the road when the back glass came apart from the convertible top and hit her, it didn't break the glass but almost caused her to hit an oncoming truck, we contacted the Chrysler dealership where we had purchased it and they offered no help, only that we would have to buy a complete new top, I asked the woman how do I know this wont happen again and cause a wreck this time and her reply was, I don't know ! we have called everyone we can find to do something about this and no one knows what to do? the car still remains undriveable right now.
