    Sporty And Fun! — Peppy 6 speed manual, with big wheels, decent gas mileage, and a cool wing that goes up and down when you drive! It was also reasonably priced, and handles like a dream whether your doing 45 or 120. Assembled in Germany, and the drivetrain and suspension are mercedes products.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The retractable wing.

    Cons: Not made for anyone over 6 ft tall to drive comfortably.

    A Review — Bad location of cup holder. Rear view mirror is limited. Sealed lens covering headlights are not tight they become fogged. Trunk is very small - especailly when top is down. Paint job is thin. The run flat tires are very expensive.

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

    Pros: Fast - good acceleration...

    Cons: Only good for local runs - too small for long trips.

    'o5 Xfire — The vehicle is almost four years old and I still have people come up to me and ask me what type of car it is and comment on how beautiful it looks. It's not the best performing car in the world but I have never felt like it was underpowered. The suspension is stiff which makes the ride a bit harsh but also allows you to turn hard without much body roll. I get an average of 23 mpg using the recommended premium fuel.

    Pros: Looks, built in Germany, Mercedes engine.

    Cons: Cargo room, comfort for larger people.

    Chrysler Crossfire Limited Coupe — I have not had any real problems. Sure there have been a few "know issues" to deal with such as one part of my seat heater had to be replaced, a seal on the transmission drain plug replaced, etc. All were easy and under warranty. Other than that in the near two years I have only had to change the oil three times. No doubt this is a hell of a car for the money. You get a Mercedes-Benz for a very low price. I would highly recommend the car. One thing I always harp on is to beware the tires. Be sure to get a road hazard warranty as soon as possible. I have replaced way too many. Lots of performance. Fun to drive. Exclusivity. The build quality is top notch - no rattles. Great gas milage 19+ in town and 27 to 30 MPG on the highway.

    Pros: Reliable, quick, fun. cheap to own

    Cons: Goofy Becker radio, Poor rear visibility, Delicate tires (however, only pussies need spare tires)

    Just Bought It Used. Love Its Look, Handling, Performance & Gas Mileage. — My first sports car. Great undercover Benz. Excellent performance given it's great fuel economy. Seats hug you and handling begs you to take to the limit. Interior is clean, but a little plasticky. Hope to never have to use tire inflation system. Some road noise & ride harshness for luxury sport.

    Pros: Style, handling, fuel economy

    Cons: Road noise, ride harshness

    Great Little Sports Car — Overall this car is pretty good. The styling of the car is excellent. I constantly get looks driving it no matter where I go. The interior could use some work. It has that cheap feel to it and is very plasticy. The performance is what I'm most impressed with. Under the hood beats the engine of a Mercedes 3.2 Litre V6 good enough for 215 horsepower which is more than enough to get this light little car to get up and go. Handling overall is also great, turns on a dime. My only complaint is that the steering feels numb. It feels like there is no connection between the steering wheel and the road. It also get great gas milage.

    Pros: Gas mileage.
    Exterior styling.
    Mercedes powerplant.

    Cons: Numb feeling steering wheel.
    Small.
    Plasticy interior.

    Smoothest,fastest Ride I've Ever Owned — It gives me that control of the road, the driving confidence of sharp handling, quick/smooth shifting in any road/driver conditions. You want to feel the wind blow through your hair, and the sleek,stylish ride that turns heads? It's a Crossfire, no question about that.

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

    Pros: Stylish,comfortable seats for long rides or City driving.Tight handling/Reaction. Smooth,tight easy to shift.

    Cons: None. It's a Roadster,meant for driving pleasure.

    Increditable Car — A carry-over from 2004, the Crossfire is a two-seat sports coupe that shares many key components with Mercedes Benz, and is built in the legendary Karmen plant in Osnabrueck Germany. Has a 3.2-liter V6 engine that produces 215 horsepower with the five-speed automatic manual transmission.

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

    Pros: A stiff body structure and over sized tires gives this car a crisp handling characteristics.  This car has unbelievable power. Power off the line is tremendous, and faster than most other cars on the road. But on the highway, this car is a madman. At 80 mph on the highway, punch it and you better hold on, and that's no exaggeration.This Crossfire is a delight to drive. Excellent performance and a real head turner.

    Cons: It can get you in trouble if your not careful
