#1499 of 1538 NAV INFO HELP!
Oct 16, 2009 (4:49 pm)
I have a deposit on a 2008 with 5000 miles on it. I was wondering if the nav unit is available or of any use. does it look the same as the original radio. I put a deposit over the phone but didn't actually see the car in person but did see pictures. Maybe it has the Nav. It does have the cd 6 speaker AM FM data upgrade. Any help would be great! Ron

The NAV is displayed on the face of the radio. You can tell right away by looking at the radio if you have Nav. If you do NOT have it, there will be a blank blacked out button in the middle of the row of buttons that run along the top of the radio (among those marked "AM", "FM", "CD", etc). The Nav discs are a few years old and there were/are no plans to update them so any new locations are not on them. I wouldn't go out of my way to find a Crossfire with NAV. It's not worth the extra money,mine just happened to have it. At least it knows where my house is. I might not be able to find where I am going, but I guess if I get lost I can find my way home!

I had the same problem, reported it to my insurance company and they attempted to get it resealed (didn't work) and then had a new top made for it. They paid all but the deductable.
#1502 of 1538 Oil and Filter Change
Oct 22, 2009 (11:29 pm)
I had my first oil change on a 2005 crossfire I recently bought, with 40,000 miles. I had it done at a Firestone dealer, and they used 8 quarts of "full synthetic oil," and changed the filter. But, they didn't specificy that they used Mobil, or a particular brand of fuel filter. Should I be nervous about this? Thanks very much. Ronlaw777

I would be finding out which brand of oil they used and which weight. I highly doubt
that a Firestone dealer would carry Mobil 1 , let alone 0W-40. I would also ask about the oil filter. You want a fleece filter. And most Crossfires take at least 8 1/2 quarts oil, sometimes 9. Definitely check the oil level - and look at the quality of oil on the dipstick.
I would be concerned if they even changed the filter at all - you might want to look at that as well.
Next time buy an oil extractor and do it yourself. Everything you need to get to is
on top of the engine. Super easy.

Just buy 8 quarts of Mobil 1 0W-40 and a NAPA 7078 filter and do it yourself. Fun to do !

Good Afternoon Chariot,
I too have an unheated garage that I store my 07 roadster in during the winter. I am sure there are many methods but I shall share my approach, so feel free to use/discard what you wish.
1#. I had an OLF completed
2#. Filled the tank with gas and added fuel stabilizer
3#. Parked the car placing the wheels upon 1/4 inch plywood to keep them off the cement
4#. Installed a trickle charger/battery tender – pulled electrical cord up toward windsheild
5#. Stuffed the tail pipes with rags and scented fabric softener sheets to deter mice
6#. Unscrewed the antenna and put in trunk (also put in a couple of fabric softener sheets)
7#. Placed an indoor denim cover (I was gifted this lovely cover – thanks Harold!!!)
8#. Placed fabric softener sheets on top of the cover and around the car on the floor
9#. Distributed mice bait along outside walls of garage (inside the garage)
10#. Placed moth balls along foundation of garage (on the outside)
I hope you find this response useful and I wish you continued enjoyment of your Crossfire – I know I sure love mine!!!

I bought a used (2005) Crossfire, but it has no spare tire. What does one do here? Are there small (temporary) spare tires available like other cars? Thanks. Ron
