2005 Chrysler Crossfire 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

For the pice this has been a dependable Gunnar to drive. Nothing ever goes wrong with it. It is very peppy, handles well and gets folks to look at you when you drive by. Oil changes are a little high, but you only need to get one or two per year.
I would recommend this car to any that are looking for a reasonably priced "fun" car that will cost little in maintenance


Best Features

Reliable, speedy, fun, cool looking


Worst Features

More comfortable seats.

2005 Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl S/C 5A)


Review

I'm retired Military and currently own 3 vehicles including an H2 Hummer.
I was a pilot so I am used to acceleration. I have also owned a Jag XKE Roadster, Camaro Convertible, Corvette 454 Big Block, Satellite Hemi, etc over the years. This is the best of them all. With power to throw your head back into the head rest from 0 mph or 30 mph or 60 mph, it literally jumps up on all fours from any speed and leaves everyone in the rear view mirror. Mine's Black Clear Coat with Alcantara seats, 5 speed slap shift, Infinity w/Nav, stability control etc., etc.
if you want a soon to be Classic, BMW, Audi! Camaro, corvette, mustang EATER, this is your Boy. It won't let you down.


Best Features

Power on demand from any speed. Holds curves like it's stuck on flypaper, sound system and Nav., head turning design, exclusivity of owning one of only 2000 SRT's made and sold in the USA. My guess is you won't find another in your hometown or w/In a 500 mile radius.


Worst Features

Cup holder. That is all.

2005 Chrysler Crossfire Limited 2dr Convertible (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Basically an affordable variation on the Mercedes SLK.
Fun to drive with top down on a nice summer day.
Six speed manual is smooth, but could be geared a little better for fuel (gear 6 in the manual is actually lower than gear 5 in the auto for some sad reason).
Fuel economy in my experience is 28-34 mpg.

Just beware that most "Chrysler" parts in this vehicle are just Mercedes parts with a Chrysler sticker and a massive markup.
Remember the Crossfire was a lovechild of Daimler/Chrysler and is no longer made.
If you buy one, be sure to join the Crossfire owner club/forum for help since most dealers don't remember what to do for Crossfire service besides take your money.


Best Features

Sleek profile. Nice lines. Every spring when I break out the Crossfire after driving a truck all winter, I feel like I'm sitting on the road - feels fast. During spring/fall, the heated seats are a nice touch - when they work. Sounds decent, and has been mechanically very reliable. I like the fog lights (or deer lights as I call them) because they illuminate the ditches of back roads where deer may be waiting to cross you. I pull up to events and people think James Bond just arrived. It has great appeal.


Worst Features

There are a few well-known failure points that the forums are aware of: Heated seats are bound to fail, and a dealer may charge you $1,000 for a fix that will eventually fail again. This problem is also widespread in the Mercedes models. There are aftermarket kits for $100 that work better than MB/Chrysler parts. Ignitions have a terrible design and will fail eventually leaving you unable to turn your key and start the car. The problem is mechanical and minor and I suggest anyone who buys a XF immediately apply the permanent fix if it hasn't already been done. It's free and quick. Otherwise dealers will charge you $800 for a replacement ignition that will eventually fail again.
