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. 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.

The Chrysler Crossfire convertible back windows on some cars lose their adhesive bond and the windows come fall partly apart. This allow rain water to enter under the window, where the roof latch is. There is a way for water to enter the trunk there. This water finds its way to two trunk cavities on the bottom, and the water has no place to exit. On the right side is the security module that can be saturated that the foam insulation, actually can store this water as a sponge. And the water can then cause a problem in the security area. Module. Lights coming on flashing and sirens blaring ay all kind of times.. that the battery can actually be discharged leaving one stranded. Had the problem happen, had to take the truck apart to bail out water, quite a lot, there is no exit hole for the water to leave that it builds up around the security module and the foam around it, soaks up water. That while the module looks good, I seen a burned area and smelled a electrical problem. There was so much water in the foam that it weight was real heavy. Solution have a drain hole in the bottom of both trunk pits, below the jack. That a material that does not absorb water be used. Place a cover over the module to weatherize it.. what should have been done that a soft rubber seal should have sealed around the roof latch hole inside that the outside is okay until the window seal lets water in.

Headlight lenses cloudy and crazing. Dealer refused to replace under warranty. District manager refused to replace under warranty. Later directed dealer to polish lenses. Made them worse. Later offered 50-50 cost share. A. my cost would be in excess of $500 and B. car is still under warranty and is apparently a manufacture defect. Numerous other owners have had their lights replaced by dealers, appears to be no hard and fast rule. District manager is trying bullying tactics. He has never seen the car, even though I tried on several occasions to meet with him. He is unapproachable and incommunicado to anyone outside of the dealer. I have photos. I gave a photo to service manager to attempt to get this resolved. District manager has not replied.

The "clear" cover over the projection headlights assembly and yellow signal light has become severely clouded/faded particularly on the upper half of the cover. The signal light is becoming obscured behind the cloudiness. The car has very little mileage and the defect is not the result of road debris damage (rocks/sand). No repair was made because the dealer blames the manufacturer for denying claim, and the manufacturer says it is up to the dealer to perform the work and place a claim. I believe it to be a defective product because I have compared the lens on my car to other vehicles of the same make and model (some of which were older and had much more mileage) and yet are in better condition than the one on my car.
