rear defogger inoperable. the wiring through the car to the back window has detached itself. this is the second time that this has happened. the first time the car was still under warranty. however, the second time the car was out of warranty. when i asked the dealer if there were any recalls for this item, i was told no and that it would be a very expensive item to replace. i don't feel that i should have to remit any monies for the replacement. it's obviously defective and should be corrected through the expense of the manufacturer.

when opening and closing the top, often times the sides of the top fold underneath the rear window. this causes a crease which makes it more likely to occur again. when folded under the top often leaks in the rain. when manually pulled out into it's rightful place, the portion of the top pulled out becomes ruffled and unsightly. damages were caused to the rear window defroster. on one side, the wire connected to the electronic defroster was broken off. also, the top has torn loose from the bottom window over halfway across the window. the top has already been replaced once under warranty for the same problem, and the same problem has now recurred.*ak

during normal use of the car, the rear-window defroster stops working. the defroster stops working because a power wire comes disconnected as the tab attached to the glass detaches. the car is a convertible with limited vision to the rear, when the defroster doesn't work the driver's vision is limited even further. this makes driving dangerous. the tab was re-attached at the dealer. *jb
