car   Wiper problem 1
Failure Date: 07/16/2017

Whilst driving on the freeway my rear driver's side visibility window flew off of my car and nearly hit the vehicle driving in the fast lane to my immediate left at 65mph. They had to swerve to avoid a collision with it. I stopped on the side of the road and picked it up.

car   Wiper problem 2
Failure Date: 03/15/2016

While driving I noticed rattling noises coming from the rear of the vehicle and excessive road noise in the passenger compartment coming from the back. After a rainy day I observed puddles of water behind the rear seats. Upon investigating I found that the fixed rear quarter windows were no longer properly attached to the body of the vehicle. I learned that a recall was performed on this vehicle back in 2007 (NHTSA campaign number: 07v149000) I called Chrysler and they verified that the recall had been performed on this vehicle in may of 2007. It would appear that the fix is not effective, and frankly I am not surprised. Expecting plastic to maintain integrity long term under tension is foolish. It should be possible to use a more permanent, flexible adhesive (e. G. Rtv) to seal the window to the body of the vehicle and eliminate the possibility of the window mounting bolt failure causing the windows to detach from the vehicle.

Driving 70 mph on freeway. Rear quarter window detached from vehicle. There is an existing recall but only covers the model year before (2005). This is obviously an issue with the 2006 version as well.

Failure Date: 05/01/2013

My rear wiper blade does not work. I purchased the vehicle in the summer months and didn't think about checking the rear wiper. Well now it is fall and raining all the time, and guess what it doesn't work. .

car   Wiper problem 8
Failure Date: 02/05/2013

My front windshild wipers stopped working. I took it into the Chrysler Dodge dealership, jackson mi and found the tipm, totally integrated power module was defective and needed to be replaced at cost of $906. I found on the internet this is a common problem on Chryslers. It is at the dealer getting repaired. I feel a recall of this is needed. If you are out driving and the wipers go out you are in big trouble. Just lucky we were in town and not on the expressway.

Rear window wiper failed to operate. Owners manual does not identify fuse location. Power trace shows power to unit, suspect software problem when over 75 degrees f. Clutch pedal goes to the floor and very hard to shift, when below 60 degrees f shifts like glass on glass (very smooth) hyd cyl. Throw varies with temperature.

car   Wiper problem 11
Failure Date: 12/21/2011

Wife left house at 4:45pm (near dusk) during rain. She got 2 1/2 miles away, phoned and said wipers on 2006 Pt Cruiser had stopped working. Went to meet her on side of road and drove car back to house, her in front of me with our flashers on, while the rain had slacked, but not completely stopped. The wipers will come on very slowly and eventually stop, if I jiggle the wiper control and turn signal at the same time. I've checked the internet and it seems like this is a common problem for this vehicle. I do believe this warrants a recall, as this could lead to a very serious or deadly accident. I don't know how many compaints it takes before something is done, but it needs to be done soon. I haven't taken this car to a mechanic yet as we have our old Ford pickup to drive on rainy days, thank god!!!!!.

Failure Date: 02/01/2011

Over the past three weeks the front wipers have been working intermittently, this morning they stopped completely. They froze in the on/up position blocking my view while driving. They did creep their way down and are currently stopped about 1/4 of the way up on the windshield. I am concerned that they won't work on one of our many rainy days in oregon, luckily today is a dry day.

car   Wiper problem 16
Failure Date: 07/20/2009

Please recall,the windshield wiper it's constantly having problem. Took to the deal and reset computer modular and it works fine. Six months later, it did it again and this time extended warranty ran out because it's a used car so I get 3 months or 3000 miles whatever comes first. So, the dealer charge me $100. 00 for the same service. A few more months it did again. Bottom line Pt Cruiser windshield wipers have serious problem and it will cause an accident someday due faultiness. Also, ac needs a recall because of the so many issue with working properly.

I have an 2006 chry Pt Cruiser. The front wiper power module has gone out on the front windshield wipers. So when it rains I cannot use my front windshield wipers at all when I drive cause they do not work and it is very hard and dangerous for me to try and drive without them.
