Default Helpful Info for those looking to purchase a Crossfire

We have seen the question asked several times here before:
"I'm buying a Crossfire - What should I know about ? "

These are some threads that discuss info for those of you who are interested in purchasing a Crossfire for the first time.
We try to explain the differences in the different models and model years and discuss some of the common maintenance and technical issues that have been discovered over the years by those of us who have owned them and currently own them.

Please help me decide on the Crossfire..

Picking up '05 Roadster next week -- anything to look for at dealer?

Considering an '04 what should I look for?

Now go buy a Crossfire!
Your support group here at the forum will help you with any issues that pop up!


Thanks to "tighed1" for these helpful links

Also here is a very good video explaining the Crossfire to anyone who is interested in buying one of these fine cars

The later years came out with the Roadsters, SRTs ('05 only), Base, and Special Editions ('05 only) .
On the Base models, you don't get the big amp for the stereo, Black paint only, no window surround (silver part on the others), no silver side strakes, cloth seats (no heat), and maybe a few other minor things ( someone else may help me on this.
The '05 Special Editions are all (I beleive) Inferno Red or Blaze Red (not sure which), silver surround, silver strakes, and SRT wheels, and maybe a few other minor cosmetics.
And last, but surely, not least, the SRT6s. What can I say, hand built, supercharged, AMG V6 with 320 HP motor!!! WOW!! I beleive they beefed up the suspension on these a bit. And a few minor cosmetics on the cabin interior.
Best thing is to look for the color you want and milage you can afford, stick or auto (SRTs are auto only).
Hope this helps...

Just would mention that "big and tall" people should try on a Crossfire and make sure you can get comfortable. There is slightly more range to a coupe than a roadster and the potential for modification of a coupe is greater but may require surgery to the seat (in case of hip issues) and the rear bulkhead (non-structural) for the tall.

I thought the roadster had a bit more headroom and all other dimensions were the same.
So I checked and I am correct.
