2006 Chrysler Crossfire Owner Comments

problem #17

Jun 122016


  • 82,000 miles


I own a 2006 Chrysler Crossfire. My back window is falling out and it seems that Chrysler does not want to take ownership of the faulty adhesive and faulty workmanship of the convertible top. I cannot drive my car because the glass will come out and result in hitting another vehicle, pedestrian or other object. This problem has left thousands of Crossfire owners in a bad situation. Chrysler did issue a recall on the 2005's under tsb 23-035-11reva but not for any other model years. State farm insurance informed me the same top/manufacturer/adhesive is used on all Crossfire model years therefore it is not covered under an insurance claim. I've driven my car 3 times since noticing the window and the problem continues to get worse; becoming more and more of a safety issue. I want to know when Chrysler will be held responsible for the replacement of all of the faulty equipment they marketed and sold to trusting consumer. I am asking the NHTSA to force the recall on all Crossfire convertible tops, no matter what year they were manufactured or where they shipped. Faulty equipment is faulty equipment and the problem needs to rectified by the manufacturer. I am asking for the help from the NHTSA - there are many complaints - this is obviously not an isolated case. Until then, my car is not able to be driven.

The rear window of the convertible top is falling out. This is a very common problem with this vehicle. My vehicle was built in October 2005, but is considered a 2006 model. Chrysler tsb 23-035-11 rev a covers the problem for 2005 models. This common problem effects more than 2005 vehicles. On 9-11-2015 Chrysler was contacted (case # 27856344). They denied responsibility. Claimed (1) tsa only applied to vehicles in southern states (I provided them with a repair order from westbury Chrysler in westbury, New York that applied the tsb & provided no charge replacement top. New York is not a southern state); (2) tsa only applied to 2005 vehicles (I provided them information where tsb had been applied to a 2008 vehicle). This vehicle is garaged most days and has only 34,590 miles. This safety problem is due to a manufacturing problem that manufacture is trying to avoid. Vehicle is in St. Louis,

Rear glass window adhesive failed and wndow is falling out. Glass window on convertable roof is separating from vinal. The window will eventially fall out completely causing unsafe conditions. Called Chrysler and was told no warranty or recall and that whole convertable top would need to be replaced for approx $2000. The car is always in a garage and has very few miles. This is obviously a poor design. Window could fall out and cause severe damage or accident.

While driving my car with the top up my rear window became detached. I took the car into the dealership and they informed me that even though the 2005 Crossfire roadster was covered for the same problem they were not covering the 2006. I contacted Chrysler directly in July of 2014 they told me the same thing. I then had to make a temporary repair for $ 150 and in September 2014 had to replace the top for $ $2,457.62 at a shop recommended by the Chrysler dealership. So I am out of pocket $ 2,607. I contacted Chrysler again last week 5 23 2015 and they replied that since my vehicle was not built in 2005 they were still not covering it. This is a very dangerous problem experienced by numerous drivers. If this window were to come out while driving it could seriously injure or kill a pedestrian or other driver. Chrysler has covered the 2005 for this problem but not later models. You will see over 20 complaints on the safecar.gov site from other drivers with the same complaint same model and year. There are numerous complaints all over the web about the same problem. I guess Chrysler and the government wants to wait until people are killed before acting.

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.

Crossfire 6-cyl

  • 50,000 miles
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.

Crossfire 6-cyl

  • 37,400 miles
As I was driving home from work, the rear convertible window dislodged from the canvas by 80%.I slowly drove the vehicle to two local authorized Chrysler dealerships for inspections. Both dealerships stated that the 1/2' of adhesive that glued the window to the canvas had deteriorated and caused the window to come loose. The second authorized dealer took photos as well as I did documenting the damage. This car is rated by daimler-Benz of speeds up to 154 mph. If the window would have completely dislodged it would have seriously injured or killed anyone traveling behind me. I was appalled by the cheap quality construction and workmanship of the install of this window. I have photos documenting the quality (or lack of) the design. I have read some articles on the internet where owners claim that they (Chrysler-daimler-Benz) have replaced roofs because of this defect. I believe in the interest of safety, that these vehicles should be mandatory recalled and forced to repair these serious defects.

I have a 2006 Chrysler Crossfire and the I notice the rear window started detaching from the top, contacted dealer, with no help, contacted the Chrysler Corp. No resolution, they informed me that my VIN number did not warrant, me getting my back window fixed, although the 2005 had a recall on the rear window, I informed them that the car was created in that same year but sold as a 06, they cared less about my problem. Thanks Chrysler for your great concern, about your customers not!

At 28,000 miles I noticed the back window is coming loose. Three sides completely separated. Went to an upholsterer who advised the entire top needs replacing. Manufacturer defect causes the fabric to shrink in warm temperatures pushing out back window. It has been re-glued. They did a fine job and advised it would not hold and they were right, it is now flopping around with only one side holding it in place. This is dangerous. The 2005 was recalled for this same problem. Same problem, same car, same manufacturing defect. It is more than time.

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.

The rear window is falling out of the convertible top on my 2006 Chrysler Crossfire. The factory and dealership refuse to make I good, saying it is "normal wear" and that the top needs to be replaced! the original rear window in my uncle's 1958 Impala is as secure as the day it was installed, so I reject Chrysler's claim of "normal wear"! there are thousands of similar complaints on the internet: Why does the government not require Chrysler to fix this valid and persistent safety issue?
