    Fun, Classic Looking Sports Car — The car is fun to drive. It's quick, fast and handles great. I love the look of the car, especially from the rear. The manual transmission is a bit choppy though, sometimes it resists going into gear. The interior is nice, no electronic gadgets to muddle it up - Radio, analog gauges, shift knob and the normal AC, and window controls...nice and clean.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles great, quick, classic looks

    Cons: Tires cost an arm and a leg!  Cup holder is useless.

    I Love This Car — It is such a pleasure to drive this car certainly if you are interested in high performance cars and I like the suspension on the car to be tight. It takes turns like a car with racing suspension. I bought a Chrysler and got the Mercedes engineering modeled from their SLK 320. It makes you silly and smile when you got on a curvy road and could really accelerate into the curves. The cons were few. This is not a Truck or SUV or a car for the snow in any way shape or form. If the roads aren't plowed and there are a few inches on the ground, you're not going anywhere. Not with low profile tires on your car. The car rides more like a race car and this isn't all that comfortable in cities with bad roads. It’s designed for the smooth roads. Another improvement would be an better defrost for the front window, and a better cup holder -it was terrible inadequate, popped up all the time and didn't hold drinks well One thing about this car is it has a very quiet engine. Sure it's small inside and like being in a cockpit instead of a car, but it was the best driving experience in a car I've ever have had. That is why I can say I love this car.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Power and stability.  It takes turns like a car with racing suspension

    Cons: Defrost for the front window, and a better cup holder - it was terrible inadequate

    It's A Keeper For Sure! — Just recently purchased a preowned 2005 Chrysler Crossfire Limited. So far I'm enjoying it. It's the first time I ever own a convertible. When I found out this was 90%+ Mercedez I liked it even more. This car should last me a long time. Maintaining it is always been a top priority for me.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty car looks awesome and price.

    Cons: Even though luggage compartment is small, but still manageable

    Looker! — I bought this car mostly for summer use. But with all of the small problems that are starting to arise, I do not feel I can rely on it. Even with low mileage, it is not holding up very good.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: sleek stylish look.  Great to drive in warm climate with the top down.  Has great handling on open road.  

    Cons: Road noise when top is up.  Problems are starting to happen, even at low mileage.  Had to have new convertible top replaced due to faulty rear window.  Now having ignition problems.  Headlight lenses have clouded up so visibility is not good at night.  New ones are very expensive.

    I Can Only Drive It 4-5 Months Out Of The Year — its fun to drive...there's more room than one would think there is...lots of leg room for taller people and roomy hatch area...handles great.. almost too good.. benz technology...22-25 mpg around town up to 30 on trips...snappy for v-6...sharp looking 2 seater and very comfy

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: i wish i could drive year round...

    Cons: need premium fuel but dealer can reprogram for regular(you will lose performance)

    If You Can’t Afford A Mercedes, This Is A Good Option. — Responsive and outstanding performance. Quality acceptable, but displeased with headlight alignment. Hoping to resolve soon. Appearance is everything, second to performance, I’m pleased. Cost reasonable, mileage 25m/g mixed locally/highway. Maintenance costly, well worth the money. My semi-retirement toy. Need I say more?

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: Maintenance/repairs

    If You Get A Chance, Get One, You'll Love It — Performance for the normally inspired V6 is very good, not excellent, but good. The quality has been fine, no issue accept with the alarm system. I love the look, people ask me if it's a prototype, yeah, a 5 year old prototype! Oil changes are expensive $112. I love the car, it's fun, fun, fun....it hold the road like glue with the Sumotoyo HTR tires, I get thumbs up everywhere I go, someone is always trying to prove their car is faster (who cares) not what I got it for. Found the 3 pc luggage set on Ebay for $100, good price. Would I want something else, well, maybe a Alpha Romeo C8....a beautiful Italian!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Some good buys out there on this summer roadster...

    Cons: none, it's a very good car.

    It's A Car To Buy When You Can Afford To Have It! — I LOVE this car!! It handles excellent and has plenty of power for me. Maintenance is quite high but if you don't put alot of km's on in a year it works out. Need a good high car Mechanic to work on it as the Chrysler dealerships don't seem to work on them enough to know what they are doing. It has been my dream car and I look forward to spring/summer/fall driving even though it can be driven it the winter, we park it.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Sooooo much fun!!!

    Cons: Service= costly and hard to find a qualified mechanic

    I'm Not Cross At My Crossfire — It sits and goes well, even though the ride can be a tad harsh, Very little roll and hard to make let loose. Steering is not as direct as I would like and entry into turns a bit savage. As a daily ride for 140m/day, it has had no issues, gives 28mpg, and oil changes are 10,000 miles apart

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Style, top down driving, uniquenessness

    Cons: Steering,

    I Miss My Crossfire — I LOVED this car. The only reason I had to part with it was due to the birth of my daughter. We had 2 2-seater sports cars, and it was the wake up call of our impending daughter's birth that prompted the sale of Crossfire. It was great to own, drive, and the ownership costs where not that bad.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, Gas Mileage, Look, Top Speed, Rock Solid Performance

    Cons: Cupholder
