Crossfire Conv. LTD 2.0L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 32,000 miles

This car is babied and a kept car (mostly in a air cond. garage) with the low mileage (30,000 Mi.) I thought it would last for years then this, (back glass falling out!) With Mercedes behind it when it was built, and Chrysler selling it, nobody seems to care about the car like it was a BIG MISTAKE on their part. Along with all the people who bought it and had this problem, which was a lot from what I researched and found out on the internet. I was going to look into a Benz Conv. but have lost my interest in it.

Years ago I owned a Sebring Conv. and it also had issues with the top but it was the hydraulic system which even after the warranty ran out Chrysler helped in the cost of repairs. Now no one wants to take care of a poorly designed "RAG TOP". I think about the quality of how customer service treatment of these cars when shopping for my next car.

I haven't bought or even looked at a Cadillac car since the problems weren't resolved by GM Cadillac Div. back in 2001. Maybe caring about customer service and quality car care is dead in this industry now! Better off buying used and looking for the problems the people have had or having with these cars, then looking for another unit...SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RE-CALLON THE 2006 CROSSFIRE cars!!!

The rear window is only glued onto the roof. We have been told that the only fix is to replace the entire roof. The roof is in great condition and should not have to be replaced. We have heard that Chrysler will replace the 2005 Crossfire roof for this problem but not the 2006 Crossfire convertible.

Crossfire Roadster V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 90,000 miles

My dealer in FL went out of business the same year I had the problem. I reported this issue to two other dealers and they wouldn't cover it, even with the "GOODWILL" warranty. I called Chrysler and they said only the 2005 were covered. It is ridiculous to have to pay $1200 for a new cover and $1000 to have it installed. Chrysler should at least pay for the new cover....

  • Manual transmission
  • 38,000 miles

So, Chrysler extended the warranty on the 2005 model where the back window fell out, but I just got off the phone with a Chrysler rep and she said "there have been no reports" for the 2006 model so I have to pay for the repair out of my pocket and "keep good receipts" in case Chrysler decides to take ownership of it's manufacturing defect in the 2006 model.

My biggest question: I see many people complaining that the 2006 model has the same problem with the rear window falling out so why am I the only complaint on record with Chrysler???

I'm thinking of calling 10 On Your Side and get the news people involved or something. This is a safety issue not a cosmetic problem. Why wouldn't Chrysler want their vehicles to be safe?

I was also told on the phone that there are some things that are maintenance issues that are the responsibility of the owner. I never thought in a million years that I it would be MY responsibility to ensure all the WINDOWS stayed on the car!!!!

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles

I have a garage kept 2006 Chrysler Crossfire Convertible. Very well maintained, has 52.000 miles & on a hot day the back glass just comes unglued & falls out. Now thankfully my car was parked at the time however if I had been driving this could have cause a serious wreck. I have called Chrysler Corp. & been told this is common w/ these cars, however they are only warrantying cars sent to certain states & S.C. is not one of them.

All shops tell me I have to replace the entire top even tho it is in perfect condition. This is CLEARLY a Chrysler problem as all these cars are made in the same place using the same type of glue/sealant? It doesn't hold up under heat. I have saw numerous post about this same issue & I am at a loss as to what to do?? All suggestions are welcomed.

Add me to the list ! I just found this site and now have a few clues on how to fix. I feel it can be re-glued if I have the right glue and come up with a way to put pressure on it while it sets up.

The next thing I'm doing is filling a complaint. I'm disappointed in Chrysler--Clearly a design failure.

Crossfire Limited Edition V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles

When arriving home from vacation we wanted to take the car out for a ride. Upon putting the top down the back window fell in. Thinking the car had been vandalized we called the police. The police stated it was a result of bad weather. Called insurance company, they sent adjuster, he went on-line and low and behold 21 other complaints of the same thing.

Went to a glass shop and two upholsters and they stated the tops are cotton, when they get wet and the sun hits them they shrink, thus pulling the canvas from the window. Appears Chrysler manufactured these cars with defective tops. Called BBB, no luck. Called Chrysler, they told me to take it to a dealership and get their opinion. Called dealership to make appointment, they told me that it has been a big issue and that Chrysler offered a 10 year, 100,000 mile extended warranty to 2005 owners. Took my car to dealership, technician stated it was manufactured in Jan of 2006 and that is was indeed one of the defective tops. Now Chrysler wants me to pay a copay to have my top replaced.

I have contacted a local TV station that does Investigative Consumer Reports, explained the situation to them and they are interested in covering the complaint. It's a shame that the state the economy is in, a company like Chrysler won't stand behind their automobiles. Once this issue is rectified and I decide to purchase another automobile, I won't have to think twice about checking a Chrysler product off my list.

I had purchased the extended warranty so that I would not have unexpected expenses.

The dealers are telling me this is not covered , searching around I have found that this is not an uncommon occurrence. I do not see why the Chrysler will not own up to the flaw and be responsible. My area window shops will not fix this and tell me I need to replace the whole top. I just can not believe there is no other solution.
