Adhesive holding rear window in place began to separate from convertible top. Other Crossfire owners have reported total failure. This is a significant safety issue if/when the rear window completely separates and detaches from the vehicle and poses a hazard to others I.e., pedestrian, motorcycle riders, etc. All the tops were produced by the same manufacturer (karmann) although Chrysler is only willing to replace certain 2005 models based on the state they were originally sold. This makes no sense, Chrysler and the NHTSA should recall all tops produced and replace them with a top with the rear window attached with some type of improved adhesive so the risk to others is eliminated.

Crossfire 6-cyl

  • 69,000 miles
I purchased this car new in 2007 from a Chrysler dealer. Having heard after I purchased it, that there were concerns about the installation of the rear window coming loose. Armed with that knowledge, I purposely did not stress the top or window area, in fact, never had the top down as that would stress the taughtness of the window. Now, 2014 the window is coming loose. I took it to the purchasing dealer and they said there was no recourse or repair and a new replacement top would be needed but that it would probably do the same thing in time because the construction method was the same as before. This defect is well known to Crossfire owners and many of these tops have been repaired or replaced by some Chrysler dealers.

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.

As the case with many other people...my back window is just falling out as well. The only remaining adhesive is on the bottom of the glass. After some research I found this was a common problem and figured Chrysler surely would be taking care of this only to find that they will only fix the 2005's"??? why not the rest of us" the vehicle only has 30K miles so it's not normal wear and tear. This is 100% a factory defect. If you have a 2006 Chrysler Crossfire it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when the back window will fall out. But do not expect the manufacturer to do anything about it. Buyer beware.
