the rear window separated from the convertible top. this happened 2 months after i came out of a 7yr warranty that i paid a lot for. i called chrysler. they said they are only fixing tops that were originally sent to southern states. so no luck for me--it does get hot in phila. the dealer won't do anything. the chrysler crossfire forum is full of complaints about this defect. this is very discouraging that an american car maker won't stand behind their product. *tr

rear window separated from top. leaks water in rain and is a safety issue at any speed. dealer had me call chrysler for details on warranty code x31. tsb sb-23035-11rev a chrysler indicated even though this vehicle's problem is consistant with all other complaints being addressed by warranty x31 and the vehicle is currently being utilized in the state of tennesee where the "recall" is active the problem is that the vehicle was not originally purchased in one of the covered states and therefoe is not covered. this policy is not fair and consisitant. all 2005 crossfires were built in germany, therefore origination point or us state of initial sale should not be the indicating factor. if the failure occurs during the x31 warranty extension period then the repair should be covered. this is a $3000.00 problem. *tr

was driving down a city street and started hearing banging from the back of the car. pulled over and saw that rear window had disengaged from the convertible rag top. have read hundreds of the same complaints pertaining to the 2005 only. supposedly chrysler has admitted it was a defect. unfortunately my vin # does not quality and i have 137,000 miles on the car. i have been advised that the window cannot be reglued and the only answer is a brand new top costing thousands of dollars. chrysler knew of this defect years ago and did not notify anyone. it seems to happen where the weather is warm. it was close to 100 degrees when this happened. i was getting ready to get on the highway and who knows the damage it would have caused my car and another car driving behind me if the window had come off. if i had been made aware, i would have had it checked. why has there not been a recall? *tr

literally the day after the return period on our 2005 crossfire convertible was up, we found out that this car has a major defect where the back window falls out due to failure of the adhesive. this issue is widespread and is a real safety hazard. apparently the entire top typically needs to be replaced if this happens, not just a re-glue job. the car has less than 17,000 miles and i've driven it probably less than 50 miles since buying, yet now i am faced with a big repair bill to make the car safe. chrysler should cover this top in *any* case where it occurs (not just in the few southern states they have deemed applicable for coverage). i am in va, and that's where the car was originally delivered. anybody who says va doesn't have high heat and humidity is crazy. we are just 75 miles from nc, a covered state. this is terribly unfair and i feel like a schmuck. chrysler should be forced to recall all of these tops, not pick and choose! how can a window falling out of the car not be considered a major violation by chrysler? can the ntsb do anything to help?

2005 chrysler convertible top recall. the car was parked in my driveway. the rear glass window had separated from the convertible top. i could not believe it. i bought this car just two short years ago with only 12,000 miles on it. a neighbor of mine has the same vehicle and the same thing happened. there are hundreds of these i have since found out. chrysler had a recall on this top and they replaced his top for free and gave him a lifetime warranty on it. when i called the chrysler recall department they said my vin# did not qualify for replacement because my car was shipped to virginia and not a southern state. that is pure junk. a defect is a defect no matter where the car was originally shipped to. if i had a birth defect would it matter what state i was born in where the defect originated? no, someone out there would care and not discriminate. give me a break chrysler. give good customer service and do the right thing. i sent a fedex letter to two of chrysler's administrative officers a week ago and have not received a response. i am now going to a local chrysler dealer who is going to replace it with a dealer top for $2500 with a very limited warranty. i can't wait any longer to replace this top. the dealer is being kind and giving me a discount because they know it is wrong that their company is not replacing this defective top. this is so bad. such a beautiful car.

adhesive on rear glass window coming loose, has been for months now. window is now barely held in by top strip of glue & could fall out at any moment. issue is covered under a service bulletin from chrysler but they are denying my claim because the car was purchased in a different state. if the window falls out it could hurt a passenger or even fly out from the car and harm someone else on the road. this issue happens to all 2005 crossfire convertibles due to a defect in manufacturing. *tr
