Default Chrysler to Replace '05 Convertible Tops Under X31 - YAHOO!!


Under a Service Bulletin issued yesterday (09/08/11) Chrysler is replacing tops of 2005 roadsters due to window adhesive failure. Extended the full replacement warranty up to 10 years or 100,000 miles!

Also note the tops are a new part number and are available immediately. No back order! See your local stealership for details.

YAHOO!!

Do you happen to have the bulletin number ?

And do think there would be ANY chance that a MB dealer could do the work ?

There are no Chrysler Crossfire trained personnel anywhere close to me.

I get this from the Chrysler recall site ( Chrysler - Contact Us )

And, of course, it is not retroactive. Right?

Thanks to all those who did make this happen for the XFers with future top issues.

Will this apply to ALL 05's regardless of mileage and change of ownership?

Gentlemen,

This is all the real deal, but includes model year 2005, only (why? ... I don't know) but it is inclusive of all 2005's up to 100,000 miles regardless of ownership history. Installation would be performed a local qualified rag-top installer.


And it gets better.


If you have already replaced or even repaired your top due to adhesive failure, you can request reimbursement of your costs with adequate proof of payment. Send all of your original receipts, VIN and letter of request to:

Chrysler Customer Assistance Center
P.O. Box 21-8007
Auburn Hills, MI 49321-8007
Attention: Reimbursement

Contact your stealership for further 411, or call 1-800-247-8007

YAHOO!!

My local dealership is a Arse. I will need the actual bulletin and I will probably need to speak to someone at Chrysler to get my dealer to do any work. I had the problem before my extended warranty expiried. I put a little 3M seal on it to get by and they rejected my claim because they said I tried to fix it myself. I told them it was just a temporary fix so water wouldn't get in and so it would't fall out - endangering other vehicles. They told me they would not pay. The Gahh top is the best - www.gahh.com. I hope they replace it with something like this.

So does your back window have to be failing already or can you do this as a preemptive thing?

Excellent Kane. Only and sadly the '05

Now, what about the folding defect for the rest of us?

Nope.

Even the parts manager had to go "up stairs" to check it out and make sure it was legit. My new top is ordered and will be here next Tuesday. And since this is a 'new' part number, it would seem that Chrysler has been planning this rollout for some time.

Once I see the thing, I'll report back as to quality and workmanship.




PS: You can thank the many people responding under the "Convertible Top Problem Solved" thread. Apparently so many people have been bltching to Chrysler that Chrysler finally conceded the problem and essentially made it a defective product recall.

Are you kidding me? Just "preemptively" do something to your window.

By the way, have you also heard that Chrysler is coming out model year 2013 with a retractable hard top for the Crossfire?

Good enough for me. Keep us in the loop as I know you will. I would assume many of us, that Chrysler can track down, should be getting correspondence in the mail, at some point, concerning this.

KimPossible, if it is an '05, you should be able to get reimbursed for the cost. See post #6.
