The Crossfire was created during the now-terminated merger between German giant Daimler AG and the Chrysler Corporation. The car's stunning exterior quickly went from paper to concept to production vehicle, where it is currently available as both a
convertible. Using the previous-generation Mercedes-Benz SLK's underpinnings, the Crossfire inherited much of that car's admirable performance and handling, but it also inherited such shortcomings as a cramped cockpit and lofty price tag. Now in its last year of production the Crossfire still stands out in crowd, and it can still turn heads -- as well as accelerate from zero to 60 mph in less than seven seconds.
"An SRT6 "roadster" for sale is dang near impossible to find. The coupes/hatchbacks you can find all day. All these cars are future collectibles but the roadsters will pull the most money and be collectable first. KBB dealer's values these at about half of what you can pull for one on the open market.People are not selling the roadsters so their data is dated."
"I bought my Crossfire new in 2004. I now have over 70k miles on it and I still love it. It has never broken down, it is simple to service-I love the extended oil change intervals and still looks great. My wife was in a rear end collision and the car came through beautifully. The other cars front end was ruined. The only complaint is the one small cup holder which likes to open when I lean my arm on the console. But it looks great so I can live with that. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a fun, stylish, fuel efficient, reliable car at an affordable price."
Cons: "A BIT OF A HARD RIDE, but nothing annoying."

"I'M RETIRED, AND WHILE OTHERS ENJOY MOTORCYCLES AS THEIR TOY, MY "TOY' IS MY ROADSTER. IT EMOTIONALLY TAKES ME WHERE I WANT TO GO. NO MATTER THE WEATHER. IT'S FAST, IT HOLDS THE ROAD, IT'S STILL ONE OF THE MOST STYLISH ROADSTERS ON THE ROAD TODAY. THE HANDLING IS TIGHT.PEOPLE'S HEADS TURN WHEN I DRIVE BY THEM, OR STOPPED AT LIGHT. SO MANY ASK WHERE THEY CAN GET ONE!!! AND THEY ARE IN AWE THAT IT'S A MERCEDES SLK IN A CHRYSLER BODY. WAS GOING TO ENJOY FOR THE SUMMER (2014) THEN SELL, BUT.....................OH NO, THIS TOY IS MY 'BABY"."
