Criticisms[edit | edit source]

Many drivers criticize the Crossfire for it's cramped cabin and lack of rear visibility. Also many folks purchased the Crossfire for the wrong reasons, expecting it to behave like a front wheel drive sub-compact car. They complained that it was hard to drive in the snow and that it was difficult to get in and out of. Those folks are likely the ones that flooded the market with the low mileage used Crossfires when they traded them in for an SUV. Another criticism of the Crossfire was the manufacturer's choice of wheel sizes and tires. If purchased from a dealer, replacement tires can cost a fortune. There are a few lower cost alternatives available, but most dealers won't send you elsewhere to get them.

Design quirks and oddities[edit | edit source]

The design queues of the Crossfire are nothing short of attention grabbing. But it always seems to amaze other drivers when a Crossfire's rear wing deploys as it passes.

Another quirk of the car is the cup holder. It is widely viewed as useless and over-engineered, and has become a joke among owners. Many owners opted to enchange their cup holder for a small storage pocket that can replace it.

Awards[edit | edit source]

List out notable awards that the model has recieved while in production. Boldface the company or orgainization that gives out the award, and Italicize the name of the award.
