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.

I understand that the rear window is falling out of many of these vehicles and Chrysler is doing nothing.

Crossfire

  • 85,000 miles
Went out to my car and found the rear window glass had fallen out. Bonding adhesive failure. Chrysler had an illogical and arbitrary tsb set up to replace the convertible tops with rear window adhesive failure but it only covered 2005 model year roadsters and a very limited number of cars that were originally delivered to dealers in a nine selected states. The reality is that all Chrysler crossfire roadsters from 2005 to 2008 model years will eventually have their rear window glass fall out due to the failure of the bonding adhesive. Chrysler's "band aide" fix was woefully inadequate and inexplicably limited.

The glass rear window in my low mileage pampered Chrysler crossfire roadster simply fell out. The bonding adhesive used to seal the window in place failed without advance symptoms or warning.

My rear window is separating from the convertible canvas top. I contacted Chrysler as there is an extended warranty of 10 years or 100,000 miles: NHTSA sb 23035-11 rev a. I was told the NHTSA was for vehicles delivered only in certain states. What does the state have to do with a faulty adhesion problem? after a number of emails and phone calls Chrysler has turned down the request. Concerned there is a danger if the window comes out on the highway.

I purchased this vehicle and not long after, the rear window of the convertible top came loose. I contacted Chrysler about the issue. I've been verbally told that there was a replacement note that affected Chrysler crossfires for 9 states. The vehicle had to be originally sold in one of these 9 states. I can't remember the 9 specifically but...my vehicle was originally sold in Kansas (which is not part of the 9 states replacement clause), I live in mo which is covered by the replacement clause. The lady that I spoke to said that it was a humidity issue that would cause the window to unglue.... so, I argued that my vehicle is now registered in a state that they claimed has the level of humidity that would cause the known issue, but, she stayed firm on the fact that my vehicle was originally sold in Kansas and that state is not part of the replacement deal../ what are my right as a consumer? I have water getting in my trunk which caused multiple electrical issues. And now, I'm stuck with the bill or keeping the vehicle as is. Thank you Chrysler.

The back window separated from the top. My understanding is that Chrysler extended the warranty for this problem to 10 years 100000 miles but not on all of them. My car is not covered. Makes no sense that some are and some are not.

Convertible rear window detaching from fabric top. Seems to be manufacturers defect. No option for repair except to replace entire top at cost of $3000 - $4000 for parts & labor.
