  • Just called Lee's Summit and was told by New Sales MGR discouunt for 07 Crossfires is $15,000.00 off MSRP, but when he quoted the total, he added back in 925.00 destination fee and 249.00 for some other fee. Bottom line it was not $15,000.00 off MSRP. :mad:

    OK,, so it's $13,826 off...... when I bought mine.....they made me borrow at least $10K....otherwise they were going to tack on another $1K also........so my final deal was $10 Cash + $10K loan + 2003 Alero strippo (ecotec 5spd..not even power windows / about 80K miles / bondo job where I opened it up like a tin can with zero radius lawn mower / dent in trunk (axe), dent in roof (fell off latter in garage / broke rib).....I doubt I could have sold it for $3K......so I figure it cost me $23K......sticker was just shy of $36K......Sales tax etc was separate issue back in my own state of Kansas. I thought it was the deal of the century??????

    So, you thinking about buying one from Lee's Summit? I think the remaining stock there are all automatics......If so, tell Kim....Chris L. sent ya.
  • Sapphire Silver Blue with dark grey slate leather. The window sticker has 3yrs/36K miles for warranty. Not aware of the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. Sounds great! What's that about?

    Thanks for the tip on UK Crossfire Forum. I'll check it out.

    If you are the original owner & you bought it after 7/26/07....every new Chrysler has a lifetime powertrain warranty (excludes anything with SRT in the name). Should count even if it was a 2006 or '05. The only stipulations....it's your lifetime (or Chrysler's) ....it's not transferable. To keep it in effect....within 60 days of each 5th-10th-15th (etc.) date....you must take it in for a free powertrain inspection.

    Correct, but does not apply to the 2005 models. Only 2006 and newer.
  • Steve White Motors in Hickory, NC has 40 on the ground to move - 25 new 2007's and 15 new 06's.

    I just made a deal on a 2007 LTD Coupe - auto/nav/asp tires/ 2-tone interior for $13,825.00 off MSRP. Could not get them to discount anymore, but they also dropped prices in eBAY as of yesterday on a few of the models listed.

    Lee's Summit Chrysler advertises 15,000.00 off msrp but adds destination charges back in.

    Spring CDJ in Spring,Texas; Landers in Bossier City, LA and Helfman's in Houston also are discounting in $13,000.00 +/- range

    Hope this helps any perspective buyers willing to travel to get the best price.

    Did you get Steve White Motors to go below their ebay price?

    I just bought a 2007 Crossfire @ same dealership. List for $38,000+, supposedly bought for about $24,000 with a few fees slipped in. Drove it 200 miles, got a wild hair and asked dealership what they'd give me on trade for a 2007 Jeep Extreme and was quoted $16,000. Had it 4 days, 200 miles, $16,000....great investment.

    Will keep car, it seems to be fine, special, fun, fast, good looking, etc. Had three F150's, three mini-vans, kids gone, and we want a fun car while we can still get in and out of it.

    I wish it was more clear exactly what maintenance has to be preformed for warranty and when etc and if only a Chrysler dealer can do it to reset the electronic maintenace reminder gadget. Ambiguity seems to be the standard in dealing with big Corporations.

    Just bought a new oyster 2007 Crossfire Coupe less than two weeks ago from a local Chrysler Dealer which listed $38,000 plus. It has less than 1000 miles on it. Automatic, two tone interior, navigation, continental tires as far as I know every option.

    Truth is, I'm 57, wife thinks it's too small and shouldnt have bought it.

    I'd sell it for $24,000 and chalk it up to experience if anyone wants it.

    Located close to KCMO.

    You should have got a 6 speed.....you wouldn't ever be willing to let it go.....real sports cars have sticks!!!

    Local dealer offering $12,000 off MSRP on all 2008 Crossfires in stock. Is this a good deal? Has anyone seen better?
  • smogdungsmogdung Posts: 349
    Lee's Summit, Mo. (near Kansas City).....$14K off sticker....+ destination & fees ( +$1,200). So it's really about $12,800 off sticker. But those are 2007s not 8s.
  • Where can I go to find aftermarket parts for my 05' SRT-6?
  • Hi turbokobe. I suspect that you will have better luck finding an answer to your question about aftermarket parts for the Crossfire over in the "Chrysler Crossfire" discussion.

  • Here's the deal - a brand new 2007 base coupe with sticker price near 31000 for just 17000. I test drove the car today, but I thought the interior was kind of cheap looking. There didn't seem to be a cupholder in sight. My first sports car was a 1974 Triumph Spitfire, and that didn't have a cupholder, but now - I think I need one. Otherwise, the car handled like my old Spitfire, and moved quite a bit quicker! Does the 3 year 36000 mile warranty include loaner car? Should I buy it for 17000, or wait for the Pontiac Solstice coupe? Thanks for all your help!

    What dealer?

    As of today, some dealers are offering a flat 18k off of MSRP on any 2008 NEW Crossfire. The remaining units are scheduled to go to auction, and this is the last year they'll be sold.

    I was offered an auto w/leather but w/out nav for $16,900 plus TTL earlier today on a new one from a Texas dealer (I had them send me the written, signed paperwork on it).

    Bad cars for winter driving, and choppy ride, though. Also, fuel mileage is bad.
  • Well, after haggling a few more days, the dealer came down to 15,857.00 plus tax and license. I walked out of Larry Reid's Bloomington Chrysler with a brand new 2007 base Crossfire coupe in black for 17,334.00. The MSRP was 30,745.00. I've been driving this car around for about 2 weeks now, and I like it more every day. It reminds me of my 1974 Triumph Spitfire, only with alot more power. There's not much room in the interior, and no cupholder. The radio has a bothersome lag, but all that is forgiven when you hit the curves - or hit the GO pedal! By the way, my first tank of fuel brought 23.4 miles per gallon. I'm not complaining.

    I just kept super accurate #s over 1000 miles of routine driving (3 weeks)....much getting on it too.....25.4 mpg 6 speed.

    Mine reminds me of a cross between the 78 vette I had & the 73 Triump GT6 MKIII I had. Only much higher quality than either & faster & quicker than both & better mpg!!

    That is an amazing deal.

    You said it was a base - does that mean manual?

    Either way, that's less than a Honda Civic.
  • Yes, my new 2007 Crossfire is a manual transmission model. The color is black. I noticed that some of the Crossfires I see have a brushed aluminum border around the windsheild. Is that for a Limited? Is it for certain years. The reason I'm asking, is that my border is black, but it looks like it's not metal. Can I wax that part? It kind of retains fingerprints - almost looks anodized. Would it hurt to wax it? Thanks for all your help with a Crossfire "newbie"!
  • Yes, you are correct. Except for the 2004 model year, the aluminum border is for the Limited models. The engines are the same, you just get some other appointments like faux chrome around areas of the interior like the door handles, speakers, etc. I believe the leather seats are standard in the limited as well. It's just cosmetic really. Will not affect performance or your looks on the exterior (other than the aluminum around the window and the fake vents next to the front tire wells), those being the most important of aspects anyway ;)

    Wow, that's the bargain of a lifetime!! Keep the revs UP & don't let off the gas between shifts = smoothest shifting. The alignment is warranted for only 12 months/12K miles.....any sign of uneven treadwear....take it back before then.

    Congratulations!!!
  • I followed winstonscifi's lead and called a local dealer that had about 18 Crossfires still in stock.

    They faxed me an offer to sell a manual coupe (only two left with stick shifts) for $16,080 plus TTL, or an automatic coupe w/out nav for $17,400 plus TTL.

    The salesman was very honest and told me that they were planning on sending any cars that didn't sell to auction by the end of the month, and that he honestly didn't know what they would fetch at auction.

    I am torn because the two seat only config with limited trunk space could be very inconvenient at times, though the price is appealing.

    For the manual, I'd be OTD for $17,224 for a new '08 with 12 miles on it.
  • smogdungsmogdung Posts: 349
    Wow, are Bases or Limiteds?
  • zq8zq8 Posts: 82
    Is this in Grapevine, Texas?
  • Grapevine, yes.

    I passed on the car. Even after the dealer offered to throw in some extras. My s/o and I have been looking for a car for a year or so, but two seats just don't work, and I think the economy is going to get much worse and deals will be better on even now hot selling cars.

    Cheers,

    Don

    These cars are all 2008 Limited Coupes.
  • I am looking for a convertable. Found a new 08 with an MSRP of $42,810 that includes automatic, 2 tone interior, navigation and upgraded tires that I can buy for $26,300. I found out that if you are over 50 and a member of AARP you qualify for employee pricing. Is this a good deal?
  • smogdungsmogdung Posts: 349
    That's $16.5K off sticker......best I've ever heard someone claim was $18,750 off ...but those were 6 speed Limited '08 Coupes I think......& were headed to auction soon. Considering that many people paid at or over sticker when they first came out......sounds like a great deal to me........a year ago I paid $23K for a new 6 speed coupe '07 ...sticker was $36K. Good luck & get it aligned within 12M/12Kmiles if tires aren't wearing evenly. I love mine!
  • zq8zq8 Posts: 82
    I just bought a NEW 2008 Limited Coupe, Aero Blue, Auto, Nav, A/S tires with 16 (sixteen) miles on it. The window sticker MSRP is $38,165. I paid a flat $17,000 and I think now that the dealer would have taken much less. That is $21,165 OFF MSRP !
