    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.

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

    Pros: Fast, sleek & stylish....eye catching!

    Cons: cup holder is useless

    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!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sharp looking, powerful

    Cons: No lumbar support, very little head room (if you are tall, forget it), blindspots and low visibility

    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.

    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.

    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
