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.

2005 Chrysler Crossfire Owner Comments

Jan 122013

Crossfire 6-cyl

  • 15,000 miles


Bought a 2005 Crossfire convertible in 2006. Was "new" but dealership put 3,000 miles on it. Security system never worked properly (car not responding to panic button, siren did not work). Was told by dealer service security disables the ignition, and panic button not working just weak battery in remote (which I did not believe). January 2013, car in garage,15,000 miles and locks would not respond to remote. Unlocked car with key. Car would not start, and was disabled. Had car towed to dealer. Had $900 repair for new electronic entry part under dashboard. End of September 2014, car 17,000 miles, locks did not respond to remote. Opened door with key. Siren went on, and ignition was disabled. Car would not start. Had it towed to dealership October 7, 2014. Car still at dealership. They believe it is electronic part in trunk, cannot open trunk. Will cost $350 to disassemble enough to get into trunk to confirm that is the faulty part. Also, told me there was water in the dash board, and other Crossfire convertible's leak water into dash and into trunk causing electronic failures. Car was towed yesterday and was in dealers lot last night stranded for several hours last night. I have kept the car in garage since I bought it, and only drove it in nice weather. I do not know what the final cost will be, but problem of electrical failure seems common with 2005 crossfires from what I have read. I no longer trust the car. I never know where or when it will strand me. I paid a lot of money for this car. I have taken good care of the car. It is a poor design leading to these costly repairs and safety concerns (car can lock you out and strand you at any time and place). This can leave one at risk in many areas and situations. There should be a recall or class action lawsuit. The owners paid a lot of money in good faith and deserve to have a reliable product in return. The consumer stated the skreem module was replaced three times, and the central timing module was replaced. Also, when the consumer went to open the door, the door handle sliced open his finger.
