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.

Automatic transmission jumps out of gear on downshift. Will not go back into gear until car slows to minimal speed or stops. Situation has left me stranded in the middle of oncoming traffic on several occasions as I have attempted to cross traffic. Beginning third week a Chrysler dealership trying to repair. Multiple electronic and mechanical parts replaced but problem still exists.

I notified daimler-Chrysler (DC) that I had a problem when my dealer tried to fix it 4 times to not avail. DC sent a tech to look at my car and because they could not replicate my problem (happens sporadically), they deemed my car normal. So anyone experiencing the following problem can expect to be told its normal? "lack of power when at a stop, even though you might be mashing in the gas pedal (pedal to the metal)" so if you fear for your life when you're in the middle of an intersection and your car won't move, don't worry because its normal? I believe I have a major safety issue with this car because multiple times I have been stopped on the road and then unable to move because my car does not register that I'm pushing down on the pedal. This past week-end it happened and I had a truck coming at me but the car would not move! thankfully the driver swerved around my car with a lot a honking and such. But because they would not replicate that problem, they say its fine. I'm concerned that this will happen again and I won't be lucky enough to get out of the way!

On this date a second transmission failure was in progress where the transmission would not shift properly into gear. This incident happened on a trip to see a relative in poor health and along with defective wheel bolts that caused the passenger front wheel to become separated from the vehicle, left me stranded. This was not the first time the transmission had been giving me troubles and has failed along with numerous large leaks noted on separate occasions that the dealership has been unable to repair under the oem warranty.
