#250 of 253 2005 Crossfire Roadster Limited - discontinued
Nov 05, 2007 (11:56 am)
At the end of '05, I leased a new 2005 Crossfire Roadster Limited. I still LOVE MY CAR. My lease will be expiring soon, and I need some advice. Now that Chrysler has announced the Crossfire will be discontinued, is this a good car to hold onto because so few were made (more collectible), or should I turn it in at the end of the lease because maintenance for a discontinued car will be very difficult and expensive in the long run. Maintenance already is very expensive, and I'm concerned about outrageous costs and limited replacement parts in the future.

I don't think the Crossfire is ever going to become a true collectible.. Parts could get expensive, eventually, just because a lot of them are sourced from Mercedes..
What you really need to find out, is the actual value of your car vs. the residual value that Chrysler Financial will charge you to buy it.
For more input on that, try posting in the general Chrysler Crossfire discussion..

Chrysler Financial is offering me a $6000 reduction to my lease buy out if i decide to purchase the lease to my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I would suggest you contact C.F. and see what they offer you on your crossfire.
