Q: Switch is locked up. What do I do? on 2005 Chrysler Crossfire

I bought this 2005 Crossfire Roadster limited when they first came out. Now what am I to do? Put a key in the switch and can't drive this car. The car was over 40, Thousand new and I only have 7500 hundred miles on this car. It has been garage kept and is my baby. Why should we be made to pay to have this flaw fixed in this car? Who do we contact to take this further? Thank You....Janet

An attorney, sorry to say. Chrysler went broke and is now owned by Fiat after Mercedes got out. If the problem occurs 3 or more times after the dealership has attempted to repair it, then you have a lemon law case. A 2005 is out of warranty, so possibly there are some other Crossfire owners with the same problem, for a potential class action? These Domestic car companies went broke because they skimped way too much on the quality. Bob Lutz, former vice-chairman of GM from 2001-2010 wrote a book about how the 'bean counters' kept scaling back on quality until the GM products became so unreliable that they went under.
