We thought it worth while letting you know of a potential issue related to our cars. You may have read in the national press about a Crossfire that set on fire shortly after the owner purchased it. Coincidentally one of our committee members had spotted an issue with the fuel line on his car. We are passing on this information from Karl Edmondson.

Given the fact a Crossfire suddenly caught fire due to a fuel problem it may be worth checking your cars. All you need to do is jack up the rear offside wheel, take off the wheel then you can check the lines all around the fuel pump and filter. Don’t just look at the lines feel the lines for signs of any wear.

With the Chrysler Crossfire going out of production the question of the availability of spare parts was bound to come into question. Indeed, body panels, trim, interior parts and mechanical components were never easily obtainable from dealers when the cars were still in the showroom. We now hear of instances where Crossfires are being written off due parts shortages and the exorbitant cost of any items having to be obtained abroad. As the Chrysler Dealerships lost interest in the car, stocks of new spares has dwindled; over the last few years much has been disposed of through eBay etc; some bargains were found for anyone wanting to store parts for possible future use.
