Identity crisis
By Crossfireowner on


2008 Chrysler Crossfire Limited 2dr Hatchback (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


This german mutt has lost its identity in exchange for economy and American drivability. All sport car compromises for just some of the fun. PROS: -Grin inducing sticky turns. Almost no body roll. -Styling is great to "tragically unique" -Bulletproof Mercedes parts. -Sporty suspension might be a con to some, a definite pro to me. CONS: -Tire noise from it's $220 (!) huge rear tires is understandable. Wind noise and plastic creaking from its cheap interior is not. -Steering is numb, pedals are squishy. -Impossible in rough weather. -Standard coupe compromises, trunk, leg room, ect. -6.5sec to 60MPH is just okay. -Blind spots are workable, but still there.

Best Features

Bought mine with 30k miles for 15 grand. What else are you going to get at that price? But does that automatically make it a perfect 10/10? Get real.

Worst Features

Fix the numb steering and squishy pedals and we're getting somewhere great. As it stands this is a good car that's great for the price, but definitely not a great car. My advice is to ignore the 10/10 reviews with complaints of cup holders if you're looking for a "drivers car".
