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.

There is a dangerous electrical short located within the dash board area of my Crossfire. The electrical short could lead to a hot spot in the wiring harness, which could lead to a fire in the passenger side dashboard area. If this fire should happen while the automobile is being stored inside my home garage, the results would be catastrophic. As illustrated by the video I uploaded to the following url link for your viewing photos.imageevent.com/firebase/videos/Crossfire%20tapping%20in%20dash%20sound.wmv, you can clearly see the electrical short occurring, and hear the audible clicking, as the short is opening and closing. Please note I furnished to daimler Chrysler's district manager a copy of the same video, by way of a ups delivery. He made the claim people doctor videos. Therefore, he refused to review the video. At this time a hard copy of the video, and the above referenced link, are being forwarded to the attorney generals office of Consumer Affairs in Alabama, for their evaluation.
