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.

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!!!!

I own a 2006 Chrysler Crossfire convertible.on August 29,2014 while parked at a store my backglass came unglued from the top.I was told that the entire canvas top has to be replaced.I went online and this was confirmed.I also saw numerous complaints about this issue.they say it comes unglued due to heat.my car is always kept in a garage and other than this in excellent condtion.this is clearly a Chrysler defect as they are not installing the backglass with a seal that holds up under heat.if this had happened while driving there could have been serious consequences.I & others am not sure what to do, so I hope this will be handled urgently.thank you

The glass rear window to the convertible became disengaged on three sides and started flapping inside the car. Took it to the dealer who told me this happens all the time and it cannot be fixed. A new top with a factory installed glass must be purchased and installed. Chrysler and the dealer refuse to except any responsibility, and want $2800 for repair. It appears that this problem has happened routinely with this vehicle and no recall has been ordered. If I drive the car the window will eventually disengage completely and possibly become a missile on the highway. It appears the glue that holds the glass to the canvas top is defective and will not hold. I would welcome contact from Chrysler with some assistance in the repair/replacement cost.

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.

Adhesive holding rear window in place began to separate from convertible top. Other Crossfire owners have reported total failure. This is a significant safety issue if/when the rear window completely separates and detaches from the vehicle and poses a hazard to others I.e., pedestrian, motorcycle riders, etc. All the tops were produced by the same manufacturer (karmann) although Chrysler is only willing to replace certain 2005 models based on the state they were originally sold. This makes no sense, Chrysler and the NHTSA should recall all tops produced and replace them with a top with the rear window attached with some type of improved adhesive so the risk to others is eliminated.

I purchased this car new in 2007 from a Chrysler dealer. Having heard after I purchased it, that there were concerns about the installation of the rear window coming loose. Armed with that knowledge, I purposely did not stress the top or window area, in fact, never had the top down as that would stress the taughtness of the window. Now, 2014 the window is coming loose. I took it to the purchasing dealer and they said there was no recourse or repair and a new replacement top would be needed but that it would probably do the same thing in time because the construction method was the same as before. This defect is well known to Crossfire owners and many of these tops have been repaired or replaced by some Chrysler dealers.

The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler Crossfire. The contact stated that the rear windshield became detached from the convertible top on the driver and passenger's sides as well as the bottom. The windshield was only being held by the top portion. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 27,000.

When I purchased my vehicle in December 2007, I did not had any major problems. Until... on or about the first of June, 2012, I parked my car and noticed that the rear window had come a part from the convertible top. Since I had not been in an accident, I began to research online to see if other consumers had experienced this window issue. Site after site, complaint after complaint was read. With so many people experiencing this problem without a suitable response or solution to its consumer, this has become a serious problem, a defect that must be resolved and the cars should be recalled. The potential to endanger lives far outweighs any other consideration. When someone buys a convertible, one doesn't expect to be driving along and the glass comes flying down and out. It's not safe! the only repair solution is the entire top must be replaced (costing upwards of $2100) due to no negligence of the consumer. If I have read these complaints, I'm certain that Chrysler has as well. Years of this problem has persisted. Still poor production of this same product and no recall by Chrysler. The company hasn't skimped on the sales prices on this vehicle. I don't expect it to take shortcuts when it comes to consumer safety. Why should the consumer suffer loss of safety and welfare? I humbly ask that these vehicles be recalled.
