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.

2008 Chrysler Crossfire Owner Comments

problem #5

Jul 012014


  • 9,876 miles


Driving down the interstate at 70 mph the rear window detached from the convertible top and crashed into the interior of the vehicle. The dealer claims that the sealant/adhesive failed and the rear window but it could not be re-attached. The Chrysler dealer ordered a new top with window. The dealer stated that there were no recalls or warranties for this repair. The dealer charged $2,605 to replace the convertible top. This is a very dangerous safety issue as the rear window could have injured the occupants.

Rear wind shield starting to separate and fall out of convertible top. Understood there was a tsb for this for 2005, but 2006, 2007, 2008 models have the same affliction.

The rear glass window in the convertible top has become detached. The adhesive used to seal the window to the canvas has failed. Both the glass window and the fabric top are in excellent condition otherwise.

The owner of the vehicle was driving at a rate of speed of approximately 40 mph and detected an unusually loud rattling noise from behind. After approaching and stopping at a traffic light, the owner/driver turned and looked to discover that approximately 1/4th of the entire rear window assembly had detached from the convertible top. The adhesive that attaches the soft-top canvas material to the rear window has failed. The owner is concerned that the remaining adhesive will also fail resulting in the entire window falling out and potentially causing an accident. Owner deems the vehicle as unsafe to drive. A prior complaint of a similar incident (also with the 2008 Chrysler Crossfire roadster) with this same issue was recently filed on May 20th, 2013(NHTSA-id-number: 10412807 & VIN# [xxx]). this prior incident occurred on May 4th, 2013. Chrysler handled this complaint with a full replacement of the convertible top assembly. The May 20th, 2013 complaint report also cites that this appears to be the same problem Chrysler has had with this vehicle since the 2005 model year when large numbers of these failures were reported. Chrysler finally issued a recall in September of 2011 for the 2005 vehicles but limited the recall to only vehicles in just eight states for a reason they did not disclose. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Adhesive on rear window assembly in the convertible top failed causing window assembly to fall out. Incident occurred after parking vehicle in garage - owner watched window assembly fall away as he went to close the garage door...vehicle is low miles, always garaged or covered, always handwashed - not powerwashed. This appears to be same problem Chrysler has had with this vehicle since the 2005 model year when large numbers of these failures were reported. Much fewer are reported for 2006, 2007 or 2008 as many fewer were built and even fewer of those were imported to the us. This 2008 is the only one I have found reports of window assembly failure on to date, but then only 2,000 were built and most of them did not come to the us. Chrysler, after much noise at the consumer level, finally issued a recall in September 2011 for the 2005 vehicles (X31 tsb sb-23035-11reva), but limited the recall, for a reason they did not disclose, to only vehicles sold in just eight states...updated 06/12/13
