The Smoothest, Most Stylish Car....... — This Roadster is the most stylish automobile I've owned. The pleasure I've gotten driving it during the warm weather especially lived up to everything a Roadster is to be. Wherever I go, people ask me at red lights, or where I'm parked...What is that? It's a beauty. Young & older, females and males, I've always gotten a "thumbs up" reaction.

Excellent Car — Crossfire is one of the best Sport cars value in the market. It is a MB SLK 320 with a Chrysler Body. Engine, transmission, suspension, brakes, etc all MB. It drives very nice, excellent power and fairly well equipped. The Crossfire is also one of the most reliable vehicles ever made by Chrysler

Pros

Fun to drive and very reliable. I know when I need power all I have to do is push the pedal and WHEEEEE!!! Turns heads everywhere. Plus with the Crossfire International Car Club Inc. and Chrysler Crossfire Owners on Facebook there is a lot of help for the little idiosyncrasy of such a "finicky" car

Cons

Ride is a little noisy and rough. The rough is typical for most small sports cars.

Wheeeeeee!!!!!! — I wanted one in '06 when I bought my Pacifica but went for practicality over fun. When I bought this I joined the Crossfire Club and have been on several adventures and get togethers. They are a very supportive group of people from all walks of life. If you have a Crossfire or intend to purchase one you are always going to need some help and so few mechanics (especially dealers) know how to work on them. This group is always there and can save you thousands as they have me. The car is amazing in the handling and speed areas. It is a little cramped for space (oh well) and light on what we consider technical options. You will tend to forget those little things as you enjoy driving.

Pros

This is a great car, very reliable and very decent power!

Cons

There is no back seat, or very much cargo room. I never used the car for anything like that so it doesn't bother me, but I imagine this is an issue for some people.

Great Car! — I really like everything about the car. I'd say my only change would be for a more updated dash look where the CD Player is. The rest of the dash is great. The car is spot on and have never had any issues with it!

Pros

Drivability is superb, a real head turner. Won it's class in several Car Shows.

Cons

No room for luggage, but I made do. I drove it to Florida from Rhode Island and back. It was comfortable, except the fact that my ex-wife was with me.

A Disguised Mercedes-slk — There wasn't much to dislike, it was gorgeous, nimble and quick, beautiful and well built. All of the Crossfires were built in the Karman Factory in Germany, the very same one that builds the SLK Models. One drawback is the wheels and tires, because they are staggered with 18" in front and 19" in the rear. Very expensive to replace all 4 wheels and tires. But, worth the money.

Lovely Car, But Now Has A Serious Limp! — I absolutely love my car! In the past year, it has been nothing but unreliable. New problems every 2-3 months. Wish Chrysler could get it figured out. Now I know why they stopped making it. Aftermarket parts a really hard to come by. Dealer in Lincoln Nebraska doesn't see enough of this model to really know what to do. Thank God for the Chrysler Customer Care people who won't take "I don't know" for an answer. Also big thank you to websites like this where I can track the problems others have with this model.

Cool Looking Car — the tail on the back of the car raises & comes out when the car reaches a speed of about 65 mph....I love it. Its a fast and sporty car everyone always wants to know what kind of car it is.

Sharp — Smart looking and powerful. Beautifully designed body. Great acceleration, good control. Gas mileage better than reported 22/30 vs. 18/22. Major blind spots on either side when backing up and very low headroom for taller folks. But if you want a sassy, sporty look - this car has it!

Pros

I love my Crossfire as it combines cool chrysler design with mercedes drivetrain, quality, and reliability and built by Karmann in Germany uniqueness. Has a great forum following for info and repairs (www.crossfireforum.org )

Cons

Not a lot of dealer support. Some parts are pretty expensive. Not a great resale value but a good buy at current prices.

The Best Of Chrysler,mercedes And Karmann — It is a beautiful car and even now at 8 years old it still turns heads. It has a very good solid feel and rides pretty good for having 18 and 19" wheels on low profile rubber. Tracks like a go cart. I have had minimal issues with the car and have fixed most of them myself with info from the forum. It goes fast enough for most people but is also available in a SRT6 model with an extra 100+ HP for those who need speed! It is the most fun car I have ever owned and with the top down it just adds to the great feeling of driving it.
