Chrysler Crossfire



  • Once you driving it with the top down, I drove it at 120 miles per hours and it is solid as a rock. It is fun to drive and I can not agree more that the style, and the design will put these Crossfire in a collectors item once all the Crossfire Limited are dry up in the market. Again, these cars have a limited production and the numbers are low. So, for those that own these Crossfire’s, enjoy it, they are much more fun to drive than Porsche Boxer, Mazda Miata, Ferrari Elise, and Honda S2000.
  • hey, i'm new and hope i'm posting in the right place. could someone please tell me how to change the passenger sidelow beam headlight? thank for any help. david :)
  • The Roadsters were introduced in 2005 and there are no 2004 Roadsters. There are a little over 60,000 Roadsters built thus far, my build number is 32195 (last 5 numbers of your VIN).
  • Hi all had a 2004 in 2004 and picked up a 2004 coupe for 13K was to good to not buy, loved the car then and more now...........awesome price :)
  • I prefer the coupe loses something with the ragtop.....dont like the line on anything but the coupe

    I also have wear problems, but at 12,000 noticed cracks in the sidewalls of the ContTacIII's.. Dealer had nothing on this. i also checked the tire date, they sent me to STS which is contintal dealer... the break was 560.00 for all 4 tires at that time. As I store my car for the winter I was willing to wait for spring. I now have 20,000 miles on them and it goes away this week. but my other problem is the fan blower, it is very irradic and uncontrolable. On low it will blow high adjusting the speed does not help and there is a funky smell and squealing behind the dash.. Do you have this problem. Dealer told me it was due to road debris in clogging the fan, but sounds like BS to me. never had this problem with any other car.. They want 200.00 to check this.. Its not covered??? anybody else having this issue and how was it resolved.

    I have a xfire 05 roadster, love my baby,however, baby is in the shop right now. Fan blower is crazy.. Blows full blast on low, can't adjust it when this happens you have to turn it off. Last week it started to smell funky, and squealing at times and again the fan would blast intermittently even on low. So I took it to the dealer.

    Here is the line I got... Lady, you have road debris caught in your blower, under the dashboard between the motor and the fan this is what is causing the intermittent surges as it is causing a blockage. To fix this, 200.00, for labor to take off the front grill and clean it... (Sounds like BS). I called back to confirm and again was told due to road debris. Makes no sense to me, I vacuum it when I wash, but how is the debris getting up there,under the car?

    Anyone else ever heard of this and how was it resolved.

  • Sue05.........This is true to a certain extent, debris can enter the cooling vents they get in through the plastic vent cover located under the hood near the firewall. Also its more than likely time to change the cabin filter that is where the "funky" smell is coming from. There have however been reports of AC blower fan issues.

    Here are 2 posts from a different forum:

    1) I also had leaves trapped which made a rattling noise everytime I turned the fan on. I ended up pulling the fan motor out...not that big of a job. If you open the hood, the plastic cover over the vent intake at the ends are fluted. That's how leaves and especially pined needles in my case were able to work themselves into the fan compartment.

    2) The Cabin filter is after the blower motor on the Xfire. It is easy to remove the Blower. Remove the access panel under the Glove box. 2 screws. Then you will see a square panel on the right with a couple of white or yellow latches. Unplug the wire connector next to this panel and slide these latches and the panel will come loose. The fan is directly above this panel and there are 3 or 4 screws that hold the fan in place. Remove the fan and use a shop vac or similar to vacuum out the debris. I would also change the cabin filter which is to the left under a rectangular panel with 2 white or yellow slide latches.
  • My Crossfire was in the shop for five days for a problem like the one you are
    Having. Another symptom is the fan will not shut off and some times slow down.

    They replace a resistor in the blower motor circuit. That seamed to fix the problem.

  • Hi I'm a newby here, but browsed to see if anyone was suffering problems with their heater fans. My problem seems similar to these here but is actually that the fan it self sometimes refuses to come on - mainly when you need it of course - but if you leave the switch on at some stage during the journey it will kick in. I thought disfuntional switch or short in the electrics but would be interested if anyone has any idea's. With Christmas coming I could do without expensive shop investigative charges!!!

    Bought an 07 Limited 6-speed manual on 12/05/07 new, < $23K....out the about the bargain of a lifetime!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I just got a second key from my local dealer a few weeks ago for $50.

    Did you ever get an answer to the 2 posts on the bulkhead? I am curious about those too.
    Also, what about that 5" wide strap that snaps down to the back of the passenger seat headrest? Anyone know what that is about?

    Lastly, I see there is an optional adjustable cargo framework that fits down in the 'trunk'. Dealer says it's about $100 but the photo isn't real clear. Does anyone have experience with these? Are they good quality?
  • Did you ever get an answer to this question about the luggage cover? I have never seen one of these but I am very interested in this possibility.

    If you go to the Chrysler can build an '08 Crossfire now??????? I don't think you could a few days ago??????

  • I'm taken by the Crossfire in many ways. I live near Toronto , Canada and have been searching Ebay for a low milage , very clean , alabaster white, 05 Roadster. This car is new to me but I love what I see. Life is just too short to do without a special toy !!! Does anyone know of any dealers that may have what I'm searching for ? The best deals are in the USA and I'm ready to go wherever, if it's the right car . I find this forum very informative and I look forward to the day that I will be able to share some owner insight with others.
  • ">Does anyone know why the crossfire roadster has such a poor resale value . I have a 2005 Roadster with 18000 miles never seen snow . I went to a car dealer to purchase a Charger and they would only offer me 13000 $ for it . I paid alot more than that . I was told that is all they are getting at the Whole seller .

    Is this a dealer scam or does these Crossfire's loose exsessive bucks after we bought them . :confuse: <img src="
  • If the police officer has an instant on and off switch , then no detector will work
  • Does any one know if the Crossfire is still made
  • Does anyone know why the Crossfire has losty so much on it's value . I looked at trading my Raodster in , 18000 miles 05 and I was told that the whole sale price was 13000 dollars . The trade in is 20,000 .
  • The crossfire tanks in 04 new the minute they were released, they were 45K
    withen a month the were 32K, I had a new one had 6K miles and sold it 6 months later for 22K, they tank bad, I bought my current on for 13K, just put a new engine in under let it tank now:)
  • My XFire Coupe started to tick, Not the normal benz sound, but a tick, they pulled my engine apart and changed the lifters put it all back together and the tick was still there, Now waiting for a new engine,,,, 34 days later car is still in the shop, hoping to come back next week,Lucky my Powertran warranty picked up the new engine....please be aware of this as a few others have the same thing">
  • It is very can buy a new '07 roadster for around $24,000. Another factor is supply and demand. Dealers have probably sold more new '06 and '07 Crossfires over the last few months than were sold in the previous two years. The market is saturated. BUT that car a few more years and it may be worth more than it is today.

    Depsite it's amazing quality and performance- it's still a Chrysler, thats why it has depreciated so much. There is not much demand for the vehicle either.
  • Hello, I have a chance to purchase a new '06 untilted red crossfire with 40miles from a dealer in western pa. The msrp is $35,455.00 2 options tires and red paint. Kelley Blue Book says this 06 manual limited crossfire used is worth 21,000.00 Do you all think this is a good deal I really like the car red with silver detailing, gray leather 6- speed manual trans. My price $21,400.00 tax and plate and full tank of gas . Can I lose ten thousand in five years?
  • the Xfire drops like a rock in price this is a base or lmt model????
    Ihave a 04 ltd and bought for 13K, yes it will drop like a rock
  • I bought what sounds like an identical car last April for $25,000. I've put 8,000 miles on the car and enjoyed every one of them. I do not regret my purchase at all even though I might be able to beat the deal now. I could have waited and saved money but would have lost 8 months of fun. Buy it...enjoy it, and worry about what it's worth when you get tired of it. Some decisions go beyond financial considerations. I used to drive really fun cars, but I have been practical for years. This is the first car that when I park it, I walk away and usually turn around to take one more look before I go in.
  • Good to know that I wasn't the only one that would park my Crossfire and turn back to look at it as I walked away.

    It's a great feeling, isn't it?
  • smogdungsmogdung Posts: 349
    Keep in mind that the '07s have that "Lifetime" warranty on the powertrain...the '06 doesn't.....for one or two K more......I'd suggest you get an '07 if you plan on keeping it a long time......bought my 6 speed last week & plan on keeping it a LONG time!!!! Love it!!! It's been icy & snowy here since I bought it....haven't spun a tire yet????Guess the DSC/Traction Control/ & Anti Lock Brakes work great....last rear drive I owned (78 Corvette new)...would have been doing 360s all over the place.
  • smogdungsmogdung Posts: 349
    One reason they are dropping (I think) is that Chrysler is kicking back $10K to the dealers (I think that's what I've heard) if a dealer sells one to you for $'s just like them selling them for $32K. I think it's just a combination of factors all coming together at the same time....Daimler & Chrysler parting company & lots of good sports cars on the market from many manufacturers. + The credit problems in the world.......if you're in the market as a's hog heaven !!!!! Buy-ENJOY!!
