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.

While driving at 15mph, I heard a rattle and noticed that the rear window had detached on three sides. This is a known safety issue to Chrysler and has been addressed by a tsb. However, this tsb is limited to only certain states. When I purchased my, I was not informed of its origin. My car was originally sold in a state not covered by the extended warranty included in the tsb dated 9/8/11. However, I bought and have driven the car in a state which is included in the extended warranty. I have owned the car for six years and it was one year old when purchased. All of the crossfires made in this year were made in germany. Chrysler has declined to honor the X31 extended warranty included in the 2011 tsb in my case. I do not understand how Chrysler can refuse to correct a known safety issue. I feel Chrysler should be ordered to recall all 2005 crossfire roadsters. I am asking the NHTSA to order such a recall.

I have a 2005 convertible crossfire, the back window is falling out. I took it to a Chrysler dealership and was informed I needed to replace the entire top for $2,200. The dealership referred me to Chrysler and they wanted to pay for half the replacement cost. There is nothing wrong with top and I should not have to replace a top on a 4 year old car. I believe the top should have a recall as I have been reading this seems to be a common problem. If the window came out when the vehicle was driving there could be a safety issue.
