While driving down interstate 95 the left rear quarter window separated from my car. I very thankful another car was not following closing. That would have been ugly. Chrysler had a previous recall on this problem but they said my VIN was not included in the recall. Reference: NHTSA identification number 07V-149.

While driving yesterday, the left rear quarter window fell out. Chrysler had a recall no. G01 for this problem, and I was told by the Chrysler rep that the windows on this vehicle had been replaced under the recall and they could do nothing for me. The repair was not done properly or the window would have not separated from the vehicle, as vehicles should not have windows falling out of them driving down the road. I feel that Chrysler did not properly address this safety issue. Note: I am an agent for the vehicle owner, she is an elderly person residing in assisted living. Her name is [xxx]. information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

The problem I have been having with the air bag light of my 2005 pt convertible cruiser has been going on for 7 years and 6 attempts to fix it. Chrysler customer care service has authorized the napleton dealership in lake park, Florida, to fix the problem with the air bag light twice: Once in September 2012, and most recently in May 2014. The service department performs the same replacement of the harness buckle apparatus each time, but that is clearly not the underlying reason that the air bag light comes on after every attempt to fix it. After the fourth attempt to fix it failed by a different dealership in tallahassee, Florida, it was suggested that the underlying problem was probably with the entire wiring system of the car, but during the 5th and 6th attempts to repair the air bag light, the dealership did not seem willing to look into this and ended doing the exact same repair that has been attempted for 7 years. Meanwhile I have been told that the car is not safe to drive when the air bag light is on.

I was driving on the highway 75 mph, at some point the side rear window blew out, I heard the sound of a open window but could not figure out where it was coming from, I pulled over and noticed the window was gone. If there had been a motor cycle or another vehicle it could have caused an accident.
