Very Pleased. — Fun driver, quick for a 150 HP car, handles well, cost effective, excellent storage, good room in he cockpit area. Increasing the tire size to 225 has improved the handling characteristics. Well worth the money, maintenance cost quite reasonable. A wider foot print wood be great.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good Value

Cons: I have only been able to achieve 27-30 MPG, I would like to have more MPG.

One Of Chryslers Best — The PT was unique in looks and styling. It had all the modern upgrades of todays cars, but it had the look of the older unique cars of the forties. It was fun to drive, handled well in all kinds of weather and on all kinds of road surfaces.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Sharp looking. All ways turned heads.

Cons: Could have used a V-6

Our Pet Vehicle — Just turn the key and go. Very low maintenance vehicle. Relatively easy to work on. Only wish it had a bit more power. A small vehicle which can transport a lot of "stuff". Even moved a full size kitchen range with rear seat out.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Easy car to drive

Cons: Turning radius

The Purple Pt Cruiser — The seats are great. You sit upright, more like a chair than a car. Back seats are very comfortable. With the seats down in the back I can fit my bike and lots of stuff inside. Good gas milage. Yea, for the sunroof!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I can always find it in a parking lot!

Cons: Good or bad, it is unforgettable.

A Fun Car And A Good Car! — The PT Cruiser was one of the best cars from the Chrysler family. It changed a lot over the years, but the basics were still the same. Performance wise, there's an OK amount of power with the non-turbo model, and more than enough when you get the turbo engine. Handling is pretty good and the solid (and weighty) car really holds the road. Handles easy and stops very well. It is always a blast to drive the car, and I get a lot of looks with all of the modifications done to make the PT Cruiser into PT Bear*Num, an award winning "Woodie" PT Cruiser.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great driving car, great looking, easy to work on, great modifications abound.

Cons: Gas mileage is only so-so.

Nice Commuter Vehicle — We are approaching 200k miles on the vehicle and haven't had any major issues with it. We are the 2nd owners of the car. It's gone back and forth to Virginia, Maryland, Boston, and New York with no problem at all.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable little car.  Very roomy on the inside.

Cons: Maintenance costs are augmented by the fact that the front end of the car has everything condensed into a small space.  The labor costs add up when the mechanic has to take other things off to get to problems.

Great, Vintage Look For A Fun, Get-around-town Car. — Have loved everything about this car except the gas mileage. It looks great, handles fun, comfortable inside, and excellent cargo space for a small car. The Limited trim package is tasteful and not overdone. For Chrysler's first year making this car, excellent product!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cargo space is superb for small hatchback.  Back seats fold down to create lots of interior hauling space.  

Cons: The 5-speed manual really needs to be a 6-speed.  MPG is disappointing for the 4-cylinder engine.
