2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 26 reviews
The PT Cruiser Base model is unchanged for 2003. Now in its third year of production, the in-demand PT continues to turn heads. However, as earlier models start to get older, owners have begun to voice complaints about Chrysler'ss well-known build quality and service issues.
The PT is powered by a 2.4 liter DOHC inline four, producing 150 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is included, and a four-speed automatic is optional. Gas mileage is estimated at 21/29 mpg with the manual and 19/25 mpg for the automatic.
The PT's unique chassis offers class-leading cargo space, and the flexible seating arrangements allow drivers to create additional space. Standard features on this model include front airbags, air conditioning, a CD audio system, power windows and mirrors, and intermittent wipers.
This base model offers prospective buyers a reasonably affordable route to PT ownership. Yet, many owners are finding that the true cost of ownership is not what it should be. For a compact car, the mixed driving fuel economy is comparatively low (low 20s), and the cost service for minor but nagging problems can add up quickly.
