Chrysler Crossfire questions and answers

Q: Chrysler Crossfire?

I’m looking into purchasing a Convertible Chrysler Crossfire, can anyone tell me if they have had any problems with it. Or what is your overall rating of the vehicle?

A: X2 on the picky owners and small complaints. its all mercedes under the chrysler badging. so if you like the benz you will love it. i actually think the crossfire is a sexy car, better than the benz but thats just my .02. only drawbacks is that there will usually be a delay on parts. my dealership rarely works on them, and we have sold a few. but we never keep parts in stock (higher cost of parts)

Q: What to do Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Chrysler crossfire?

I own a 05 jeep grand cherokee I like it but I don’t like the amount it costs to fill it. My husband found a really good deal on a chrysler crossfire its an 04 and is loaded with low miles. I am considering trading it.

Anyone have a crossfire or know anything about them. I know its not a good winter car but thats ok we have a 4wd vehicle.

A: If I were you, I would look into a Toyota Solara, Honda Accord coupe or Altima Coupe. The reason I say this is because they don’t cost a lot of money, they last a long time, and resale value is excellent. The Crossfire has dismal resale value and will be nowhere near as reliable.

Check for reviews on cars in that class and you’ll see what I am talking about.

Q: 2004 chrysler crossfire, how do i make the lights inside the car come on automatically at night?

i just bought a 04 chrysler crossfire and at night when i get in my car/open the door (the key is not in the ignition) the lights DONT come on inside the car and i cant see anything. is there anyway i can make the lights automatically come on?

A: Check your instrument panel light dimmer switch. Yours is probably all the way down low, which cuts off your interior lights as well. If you turn it up one notch, your interior lights shold work.

Q: Is the Chrysler Crossfire for older people?

I am a 19 year old college student and I found a great deal on a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire Roadster Limited but i’m not sure if it is a car for older people. I know that it is basically a mercedes with a chrysler bagde, but is it reliable and would you recommend it?

A: No, it’s a car for people that don’t care how terrible it is. They are not good cars. They have poor performance for a sports car, they’re small, they’re unreliable, they have very expensive parts from the old R170 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class roadster and they were very overpriced.

That’s why they discontinued making them.

Q: what is that clicking sound when using my chrysler crossfire roadster?

I just purchased a 2006 crossfire roadster convertible it rides great but there has been this clicking sound for the last two weeks they think its the radio because the radio will stop playing so they are replacing the whole console under warranty but it clicks even if I dont uses the radio? Has anyone experienced this?

A: fuel pump should click as soon as you turn the key on.

Q: How will a Chrysler Crossfire drive in the snow?

im looking at buying a crossfire but i live in northwest ohio and i am nervous about getting it around in the winter

A: As well as any rear-wheel drive vehicle will. If you know how to drive in the snow, it isn’t a big deal. Slowly accelerate, drive slower, brake sooner and you’ll get where you need to go.

As mentioned, tires are important, you need at least an all season tire for any vehicle to get around in the snow.

Q: How bad is the Chrysler Crossfire?

I work with a guy that says the Crossfire is a suck-y car. Car anyone (who owns one) tell me if he is a liar. What are the Bad points of this vehicle?

A: I don’t really think the car is bad – it’s basically an older Mercedes SLK. The SRT-6 model is really nice if you like performance. However, it’s no secret that Mercedes reliability isn’t what it used to be and Chrysler has never been a star in that area. Resale values are horrible – buy one used if you really want one. You should be able to get a really good deal on one.

My buddy who works for Daimler-Chrysler said that DC has about 50,000 Chryslers parked around Detroit in what they call their Sales Bank. He told me that about 6,000 of these are 2005 model Crossfires. DC was planning on getting rid of a lot of these by offering some pretty cheap employee leases.

I don’t know how successful this move has been.

Q: chrysler crossfire convertable roof sensors?

Can someone tell me where the convertible roof sensors are located on a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire. I am getting an alarm while driving with the top up. This alarm does not go off when the top is down.

A: There’s actually 5 different sensors on the top, one at each hydraulic cylinder, and one at the pump. Look at the sensors and make sure the wires are all plugged in and none are cut or broken off. These sensors are not cheap (about $400 each for the cylinder sensors and $275 for the pump sensor), so best thing is going to be take it to the dealer and have them figure out what is causing it if you can’t figure it out yourself.

Q: What is a good tire for a 2004 Chrysler Crossfire that will cut down on road noise?

I bought it used and on the front I have Kuhmos and the back has Continentals. Every time I have had anything done to it, the mechanics have said I needed to switch tires. I expect some road noise because of how low it sits, but I think this is excessive.

A: The Yokohama Advan S4 have the best ratings for low tread noise, and ride comfort while still giving some snow traction. The Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 have a similar rating for comfort and noise, but have a slightly higher wet and dry traction rating. However, they’re a summer only tire, which means they weren’t intended to be used in cold weather driving with even minimal snow, they’re rated slightly lower for treadwear, plus they’re going to be about $250 more for the set than the Yokohamas.

I would go with the Yokohamas even though I don’t have to worry about snow simply due to the cost difference.

Q: How do you turn on the fog lights of a chrysler crossfire?

Chrysler Crossfire

I have tried all the positions of the light knob and the two settings to the left of the off setting dont turn on any light. Could you tell me what all the settings do?

A: If I remember correctly, you turn the knob for the lights to the normal on position and then pull the knob out towards you. Good Luck!

Q: How do I fix this on my 2004 Chrysler Crossfire?

The fabric lining on the roof of my car has peeled off and its now hanging touching my head while im driving lol. How do I fix this without messing it up?

A: Best crossfire site on the webernet. They know everything there.

Q: Do I HAVE to use premium unleaded in my Chrysler Crossfire?

I know it will have the best performance with it, but will it damage my engine if I use regular unleaded? I’m not going to race this car or anything.

A: Considering the money I spent to buy the Crossfire, I am going to do what the manual suggests. It says to use Premium so I am using Premium gas. It says to use Synthetic oil, so I am using that as well.

I don’t think it is worth the risk of messing up the engine to save a few dollars at the pump. Preventive maintenance is cheaper in the long run.

Q: What is a 2007 Chrysler Crossfire front bumper made of?

I have no idea what i’m doing when it comes to body work/materials. It feels like a rubber plastic type, but cant tell. I had a guy brake check me and might have to replace the bumper, would rather have the fiberglass fixed tho.

A: It is most likely urethane. thats what Chrysler/Ford/Lincoln all use for their stock front bumpers

Q: Can I manually reset my check engine light on my 2004 Chrysler Crossfire?

I ran out of gas yesterday (idiot). Car started shaking, check engine light came on, then my car stalled out. I put 2 gallons of gas in, drove to the gas station, filled up my tank. This morning there were no shakes and it drove smooth again, except the check engine light is still on.

Please help.

A: The ligth may have come on because it was misfiring when running out of gas. IN THEORY the light will go out on its own when the computer sees no problems after 2 drive cycles’ for the reason the light is on. A drive cycle consists of a predetermined sequence of engine and vehicle speeds.

Just wait a week or so before you do anything.

Q: How do you work the navigation control on a Chrysler Crossfire?

A: put in the nav cd it came with. east coast or west depending on where ur at and where u want to go, then hit the NAV button on the dash and program the address and ur good to go..
