New attitude every day!

This is the first new car I've ever owned. I've never had any problems and it handles like a dream. I bought it while I was on vacation, while "killing time". I had no intention of buying one, but after driving it and letting the wind blow through my hair, I was hooked. I've had mine for over 5 years now and it still looks hot and makes me feel like a teenager. The only thing I'm not fond of however, is when the top is up, it has a bad blind spot. You have to really watch yourself and adjust your mirrors to avoid others. If I have a chance to buy another, I won't hesitate. (My family is already fighting over my car just in case something happens to me. haha)

A fun car to drive

Overall I really like this car. First I will list my DOWNSIDES: 1) Oil changes are very expensive. 2.) OK it's a real sports car, but I wish it had a spare tire, hard to do since it has different size wheels on the back 19 inch and 18 inch on the front, Oh well I can live with it. 3.) It has a joke for a cup holder, I would not have put one in if it had to be the one it's got. 4.) You really have to be aware of what is on the back sides of you because the visualibility is pretty poor out the back window with the convertable top up, but again it is a true sports roadster. 5.) You have to put premium gas in it. NOW the UPSIDES: 1.) Very fun to drive. 2.) The exterior style is execptional. 2.) It is a head turner. 3.) Fast out of the gate. 4.) I love the way the drop top works. 5.) The small roll bars behind each seat are very stylish. 5.) The Tires and wheels are cool along with the 19 inch in the back and 18 inch in the front. 6.) Did I say it is fun to drive? yes I did in my first point. 7.) I love it and I am very happy to own it.

I bought this 2005 Chrysler Crossfire in April with 40,000 miles and I couldn't be more pleased with the overall quality of this car. I have the six speed convertible,what a head turner!! I really think that Chrysler should bring it back,they stop production in '08. I'm the second owner of this car and the original paperwork was in the glovebox, at $38,000 plus, I couldn't afford new but I found several great deals across the midwest.This is a true sportcar with great power and handling. DRIVE THIS CAR!!!

Art Deco on the move!

by from St. Louis, Mo. on August 30, 2008

From the hood strakes to the dragon tail, this car screams for attention and gets it. It handles like it's on rails and gets 21 mpg on the highway (but not at 130 mph). Even the cupholder is a engineering work of art, to be looked at and admired but never used! The only thing I don't like is the cost of oil changes for the 3.2 L Mercedes engine @ $135.00. Very solid build (Karmann makes the car in Germany) and nice sounding 240 watt stereo. I think most people will like, no, will love this car!

I bought this Crossfire SRT6 in March, so I can't attest to reliability yet, but since it is built by Karmann, who also builds the M-B SLK, I would expect it to be pretty good. Although there are a few little quirks, overall, the car is very fast, with excellent handling. The best thing is the brakes, just phenomenal. Definitely an attention getter, probably because it is rare, only about 3,000 SRT6's built. Fairly well thought out interior, but I wasn't crazy about the silver dash panel, I purchased an aftermarket wood grain kit. I probably devalued the car a bit by doing this, but everyone likes it better, including me. Performance equal to or better than SLK of same era, and goes for 1/2 the price of used SLK, so I feel like this is a great deal. if you can find a clean used SRT6 with low mileage, go for it, you will not be disappointed.

Probably the best car I have ever owned, better than a mustang, vette or eclipse which I have also owned. Exceleration is incredible (str6) and will leave you with a HUGE grin. Very reliable the only thing that is not outstanding is the cupholder. Some one's idea of a retro joke? Not funny. Great Car!

Crossfire SRT-6 a Collectable

I also own a 2005 Crossfire convertible, Limited and was so impressed with it I wanted to own the supercharged version i.e. the SRT-6. Upside with the SRT-6 is of course the acceleration. With SRT-6 you are going from 215 HP to 330 HP. Downside, is a much stiffer ride when compared to the normally aspirated convertible. Upside only about 2,900 SRT-6's were produced during 2005-2006. Has an AMG engine hand built in Germany along with the rest of the vehicle. Downside, with coupe is the restricted view to the rear, but that is where most of your competition will be. Upside, in my opinion, is it's classical exterior lines. I have been the recipient of many compliments and questions regarding both vehicles. Will it become a collectable is anyone's guess.

I bought the SRT-6 used it's a fun car to drive . I have the roadster model the top is fast and neat ,there is still enough room in trunk for weeekend bagage for two with the top down . Gas mileage is pretty good if you can keep your foot from flooring it (hard to do because fun factor ) car is great value used because new sticker price was 52,500.00 .Got mine for under 10,000.00 So for car runs great !

Nice style and it's an eye catcher. Difficult to change flat without spare....provide you with a jack....seriously Chrysler that defeat the purpose. Did I forget to mention the tires has to be order! They're not the usual tires to be purchase daily. Right car wrong time do to gas inflation $$$! It's my toy car and for the valuable price it beats Mercedes original prices any day. Might have a Chrysler body but I got a Mercedes engine.....ZOOM ZOOM!
