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.

Rear glass in convertible top has separated from the fabric. Vehicle has less than 30,000 miles and is garage kept. Vehicle is not abused and top has only been retracted a total of approximately 15 times so it can not even be attributed to "normal wear and tear". this seems to me to be a manufacturing defect.

Rear glass window falling out of 2006 Chrysler crossfire convertable. The corners of the rear window started to separate from the roof material. After putting the top down and putting it back up, most of the top and corners of the rear window were loose from the roof fabric, I called the Chrysler dealership to find out how it could be repaired. They told me that a new convertible top would be needed. It could not be repaired. Chrysler dealer quoted $1,650 for the top and $1,000 for labor

It appears Chrysler has extended their warranty on 2005 models for this very same problem. What ever fix they think they made for later models didn't work. They need to cover this safety issue.

Chrysler extended the warranty on the 2005 model and acknowledged that the back window on the convertibles tend to come unglued and fall out. I own a 2006 model and I just got off the phone with a Chrysler rep and she said "there have been no reports" for the 2006 back window coming unglued on the convertibles so I have to pay for the repair out of my pocket and "keep good receipts" in case Chrysler decides to take ownership of it's manufacturing defect in the 2006 model. I don't understand how the same manufacturing defect can be recognized for one year and not the next. What can Chrysler produce to show that they fixed the problem with the 2006 convertibles" also, I see many people complaining that the 2006 model has the same problem with the rear window falling out so why am I the only complaint on record with Chrysler??? this is a safety issue not a cosmetic problem. Why wouldn't Chrysler want their vehicles to be safe" I was also told on the phone that there are some things that are maintenance issues that are the responsibility of the owner. I never thought in a million years that I it would be my responsibility to ensure all the windows stayed on the car!!!!

Rear window is coming apart from the top. Glue joint is failing, window falling out for no reason that I can see. Chrysler does not want to own the problem, in all of the years, 2004 thru 2008 for the crossfire conv. This is a problem with the crossfire conv.

The rear glass window on my convertible top became detached from the surrounding material. Apparently the glue holding the window on failed. I pulled over and secured it before it flew off and potentially hit another car or pedestrian. This is a previously know problem with this model for the 2004 and 2005 model years. Chrysler has issued a recall for cars with this problem in certain southern states of which I live in one Texas. I contacted Chrysler today and they indicated my area was covered but not my model year. I have seen numerous complaints online about this occurring in other 2006 models. This could potentially be an extreme hazard to other autos and pedestrians.

At 70 mph driving on the highway, the rear window separated from the convertible top. Scared me to death and not knowing what happened I pushed the brake pedal to stop and almost got rear ended by the car behind me. After a short online research I found the service bulletin tsb 23-035-11 that extends the warranty on the convertible tops to 10 years/100,000 miles to some states mostly southern. However, after contacting Chrysler and talking to [xxx] id [xxx] I was told that there was nothing that Chrysler would do about it because the bulletin refers to 2005 models. I told her to escalate the complaint and later I've got a call from a [xxx] pretending she was a supervisor and told me that she never heard of any rear windows separating from the cloth convertible top. I explained to her that this is a factory defect and there are hundreds if not thousands of people with the same issue, complaining all over the internet about it, but she refused to do anything about it. After suggesting to her to look up the bulletin no tsb 23-035-11 she said there is no such thing. This is a serious issue and Chrysler has to do something about it before someone dies as a result of these windows separating from the convertible top.

The convertible top rear glass window fell out of the top, I have been told it is not covered under my Chrysler 8 year 80000 mile warranty but they have a recall for the 2005 Crossfire's and only in certain states. If this window blows out running 70 mph down the freeway someone could be injured or killed. They sent me to a repair shop to have it re-glued at my expense. I called and tried to get Chrysler to fix this the right way but was refused any satisfaction.

Overnight the rear window has detached from the convertible top causing a safety issue. Some 2005 models have been recalled for the same issue, but not 2006 modes. I find online that others have had and are currently experiencing the same issues.
