  • At 15,000 off sticker I will fly and buy. Where is this dealer located? Please place name of dealer and city/state on this board!
    Thanx in advance.
  • I'd like to know where I can get a 2005 LTD auto Roadster (in Aero Blue) at $15K off.
    Thanks!!
  • Maroone in Coconut Creek FL, last I looked had SRT Coupes only, at the time they were 46-48K sticker with 15K off.
  • Since this is February, I'd like to know how much less I should pay for a 2005 Crossfire convertible lease? The car I'm looking at is a Limited with an original tag of $40,730 and a current sale tag of $33,315. Could you give me some ballpark figures on this for 39mo./12,000 miles?Also, the dealer is suggesting front and back payments? The dealership is in northern Illinois, but I live in Wisconsin, just over the border. Thanks.

    purchased an red 05 ltd roadster for $30k (the going price in my area) in about 15 minutes time in a dark showroom - signed papers & paid them for it!

    car was dirty when picked up. was literally on my way out, w/keys, heading to the car - when i happened to see a long dark streak on passenger side - upon closer look, dirt was hiding a 2 feet long scratch/chips in passenger side body so deep that underneath the dirt you could see grey metal. upon closer examinatin, dirt was hiding a lot - baked on glue from old stickers, paint chips in front dam underneath mud spots. there was also a huge very visible 3 inch round scratch/stain on inside panel of car.

    was very nice about it. didnt ask for any price reduction. didnt fuss, only asked them to fix the scratch, & clean the car up. they agreed and called a week later to say car was ready.

    upon 2nd pick up, found that they failed to honor their agreement. apparently, they now wanted out of the deal. they stated that they had others interested in it as is and that my choice was to take it or leave it. they got really nasty, beyond the pale (i.e., not worth their time to deal with me anymore, incentives being given b/c it was damaged, it was really an 1 1/2 year old car, cant expect it to be in good condition, all crossfires were badly shipped and had cosmetic problems, that it was really my problem with being too fussy, yayada).

    i asked repeatedly for them to honor their agreement and they refused. manager refused to talk to me & ASKED ME TO LEAVE! no apologies for wasting 2 days of my time - i drove 200 miles each time to pick it up.

    if you buy this car from salermo, get a good price b/c it was damaged; there were numerous cosmetic damage that they will not disclose to you; it should be priced at used car price by their own admission.

    Hope some one can anwser these questions. We have a cloth manual seat, I thought one of the features was that when you move the seat forward, it rocks upwards and gives you 2 to 3 inches up. How does that work, the lever on the left side of the seat moves but doesnt recline. Is this a problem, when you pull the front lever up it just slides the seat back and forth but will not go up as advertised, is this just a defect or is there a reason anyone can figure out. Also when you use the remote, only the lights blink, is there a program to make the horn honk when locking, Its not in the owners manual and people at the chrysler web site cannot help........ Frustrated this is a new Car... Thanks

    Hi, crossfire5..

    Since this is a leasing discussion, you might have better luck getting an answer in the general Chrysler Crossfire discussion.. where more current owners will be hanging out...

    THNX FOR THE RIGHT LINK !!!!!!!!!
  • I have been shopping for a SRT-6 for a couple of weeks. I found coupe in Houston, TX with 700 miles for $26,900. Found a convertible with 3000 miles for $30,000 - for sale by private party in San Diego. Went to a dealership outside of Dallas and for a SRT-6 convertible $38,500 (they were very proud of theirs)...Bought mine off ebay for 34,000 yesterday...SRT-6 Black Convertible with navigation - 5000 miles outta PA. Pricing is all over the place but still some available. I used Capital One Auto Finance online to get the deal done...gave me some bargaining power. You may look into that.
  • wow, that's a pretty shabby experience... Maybe I'm old fashioned, but when spending the best part of a year's wages on a car I expect some pretty damn decent customer service myself. If it's scratched and [non-permissible content removed], you bloody fix it and smile politely. I rented a crossfire convertible for the weekend and fanged it up to hervey bay from the gold coast in (a good 300kms) and I have to say it's a bit on the underpowered side. You get a nice satisfying noise from the tailpipes, but nothing mind blowing happens. I got her up to about 185km/h and she got a bit twitchy too (keep in mind this is a rental so probably been thrashed!) but overall to was great fun! got more than a few admiring looks... that pastel yellow is rather ostentatious - although a bit girly, however the woman was impressed and went a bit weak at the knees when driving it ;) . I'd love to see how the SRT6 goes, but I reckon that they need to make a hemi variant... that car CRAVES a V8 in my most humble opinion!
  • I bought a new SRT6 for 27K from the dealer..... Taxes and title included..

    WHAT AN AWESOME DEAL. I Love my new car!!
  • My husband leased a 2005 crossfire a week before we met. We have a 39 month lease up in may 2008. I really want to turn it in early, but I am afraid if a huge penalty. I want to take on a different chrysler lease, but one that is a 5 seater.(we have a child} I have a close relative in chrysler to get a good deal, but I don't know if it will be enough. Please tell me anything I can do/any options I have. I know how bad the crossfires are doing, thats what worries me the most.

    Was it a Coupe or a Roadster and how many miles were on it?
  • Hi Candice. I am sorry to say that it is usually fairly expensive to get out of leases well before their scheduled end dates. In order to do so, you need to purchase the vehicle that you are currently leasing from the bank that you are leasing it through. It often turns out that it costs more to do so than your vehicle is worth on the open market. Furthermore, many banks expect consumers who end their leases early to still make all, or at least the depreciation portion of their remaining lease payments. As you can see, this can get very expensive.

    You can determine approximately how much it will cost you to get out of your current lease by comparing its purchase price to its value on the open market at this time. You should place a call to the bank that you are leasing your vehicle through to find out its exact price. Once you know exactly how much money it is going to cost you to buy your leased vehicle you need to compare it to its current value on the open market. You can find out approximately what your vehicle is worth by looking up its Edmunds.com True Market Value in the Used Vehicle Pricing section of this site. You also may want to stop by the following discussion: "Real-World Trade-In Values". Don't forget to check to see if you are still on the hook for your remaining lease payments. The difference between your leased vehicle's current value and how much it will cost you to buy it plus any remaining lease payments that you are obligated to pay will equal the cost of getting out of your lease right now. You may find that you are better off waiting until you are closer to the scheduled end of your lease to get another new vehicle. Chrysler is running an early lease termination program for select vehicles right now, but this promotion only waives three payments so you are still going to have to pay a ton to get out of your Crossfire lease early.

  • It was a couple...120 miles on it. I am the 1st owner...
  • I was SRT6 Coupes in my area.....listed at 40,000, including the 5K cash back (2005 model). Is yours a 2005?
  • SRT's were only made in 2005. They weren't available as '04 models.
  • New SRT in Canoga Park $34999 aero Blue Coupe,Nav,330hp,only a few left...great dealer...no hassles

    for a Crossfire Coupe: new or used. Do you think the SRT is worth the price difference? I'm willing to go anywhere in the US for a good price - heck, I can always use/ enjoy a good road trip. Lotsa great prices in TX and Florida... but how do I ensure I don't get a car that's a Karina victim?

    Really excited, since I've been eyeing this car for years and finally ready to move onto the researching and purchasing stage.

    Thanks!

    Just bought a 2006 Crossfire Limited Roadster, only 51 test driven miles on it when I first sat down in its beautiful two-tone leather seats. Love the color....red pearl, literally haven't stopped at a single place while driving it and NOT received a comment on what a hot car it is. I love her!! Best of all, got a great deal (I think) $27,600. They had one other, it was white with grey leather interior. Great experience with salesman at Citrus Chrysler in Dade City Florida.

    Any luck so far? I'm pretty sure that here in Florida, you won't find cars that were Katrina victims. Pretty much, if you go to a reputable dealer, that shouldn't be a concern. I can't speak for Texas since I've been to the Dallas airport all of once for a layover, but it's been pretty good here in FL.

    I think there's a dealer or two with SRT's on the lot. If I find a link to one, I'll post if for ya.

    Hi Cmdr17,
    I'm also looking for a 2006 SRT6 Roadster, new or used. I'm in San Jose, CA and any suggestions would be appreciated. It's a big country with lots of Chrysler dealers and I don't have the inside track.
    Thanks

  • Hello,
    At the end of '05, I leased a new 2005 Crossfire Roadster Limited. I still LOVE MY CAR. My lease will be expiring soon, and I need some advice. Now that Chrysler has announced the Crossfire will be discontinued, is this a good car to hold onto because so few were made (more collectible), or should I turn it in at the end of the lease because maintenance for a discontinued car will be very difficult and expensive in the long run. Maintenance already is very expensive, and I'm concerned about outrageous costs and limited replacement parts in the future.

    Hi, curlytopd1..

    I don't think the Crossfire is ever going to become a true collectible.. Parts could get expensive, eventually, just because a lot of them are sourced from Mercedes..

    What you really need to find out, is the actual value of your car vs. the residual value that Chrysler Financial will charge you to buy it.

    For more input on that, try posting in the general Chrysler Crossfire discussion..

  • Picked up a 04 with 44K miles.....13K :)

    in 04 bought a 04 for 34K.like this much better....
  • smogdungsmogdung Posts: 349
    I got screwed..........in todays newspaper the ad now says $15K off ..last week it was only $14K off..the week before it was $12.5K off .they have 13 left on their website.....all are automatics 3 Roadsters - 10 coupes......I think it's a brand new dealership & they appear desperate to meet a 1st year goal.....cause another dealership in the KC area has 17 in stock & they aren't advertising such a deal????

    I paid < $23K....6 speed. 24 miles on odometer.
  • just purchased a 2004, auto, white with red/black interior 15k miles for just over 16k. there was a mint, red 2005 with 15k miles on it driven by a woman for 12months (she bought an audi t/t) - can be purchased for15k or so. car is in fall river mass - i drove it, a great car.
  • We just bought a new 2006 Crossfire Limited coupe from a dealer in NY over eBay. My wife thought I was nuts until the car arrived. It took three looong weeks to ship from NY to CA, and she loves it. It was kind of fun to check the progress each day, but a little frustrating to see it sit at the same terminal in the middle of the country for days at a time. I clicked Buy-It-Now for $20,384. Window sticker was $37,580. Had to pay $1,271 for shipping from NY to CA, but still a great deal for a new car with 10 miles on the odometer. We're looking for a Crossfire club somewhere near the central California coast. Any ideas where local clubs can be found?
