    A Great Vlaue — I bought it used in 2002 and have had to replace the brake pads and change out the battery a couple of times - that's it. The ride is harsh on bad roads, but otherwise it is a wonderful, practical car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: Harsh ride at times

    Good Little Disposable Car, Holds Lots, Hauls Lots, And Decent Mileage, While Being Reliable — Interior looks well made and put together Has never left me stranded Peppy with the standard and non turbo Cheap to buy used, and cheap on parts Its a reliable car that has space for 5, or fold the rear seats down and get a lot of storage room, or take the seats out, all while getting 26-33MPG

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Relaible

    Cons: Poor turning radius, expencive engine work on labour portion

    Love It Or Hate It — I love the acceleration....it takes 13 sec from 0 to 100 km/hr....but because is AT so it takes a little...but the version MT is so fast.....The quality of brakes is incredible.... Appearance, it only takes two different ways...love it or hate it.... the build need repairs once in a while, but it´s because of the road..... Gas mileage...for the kind of motor it consumes to much xD

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

    Pros: Appearance and Performance

    Cons: Gas mileage!!!

    Car Needs Some More Ponies. — I like the fact that my car stands out in a crowd. The only thing that I can't stand about it is that it is so weak in the engine. I wish that they had produced a 6-cylinder at least. The 4-banger is a descent one that does have some good pick up, just not enough for me.

    Pros: Car looks very distinctive and is extremely comfortable inside.

    Cons: POWER, POWER, and guess what...MORE POWER!

    I Love Mine, But Your Results May Vary... If It Fits Your Personality Then Its A Great Car... — Handling is incredible, interior size is great, small on the outside, big on the inside. Kinda likea minivan except cool. Not a speed demon, but good top end and great looks. If the car fits your personality, then you'll love it, but this is one you need to drive to see if its for you. I love my PT Cruiser, your results may vary.

    Pros: The handling, cornering etc...

    Cons: Not a speed demon, but a respectable 4 cyl.

    Megan's Pt — I love the way it looks. But on bumpy roads it does not do well at high speeds. And we all know how much I like speed. I also don't like that there isn't a lot of space in the back seat. So my next car will hopefully be a Charger. More speed and more stability and more space. But it has to be black.

    Pros: Cute, small, and speedy.

    Cons: Small

    Cons: nothing

    Decent First Car — The good: it's a quick little car; not quite what most people would expect. Love the leather seats. Sound system was MADE to be upgraded, and I've done some upgrading myself. Easy to perform routine maintenance. Solid suspension. The bad: Automatic transmission. Power door lock problem. Poor fuel mileage. Blind spots. No arm-rest for passenger seat. (Leaves passengers sprawling around looking for something to anchor themselves to when taking turns quickly) Not many options for improving performance.. pretty much all you can do is add a cold air intake, exhaust, and if you have a few grand, a turbo/supercharger setup. NEVER, EVER, EVER take this car to a Chrysler dealership.. they will find EVERYTHING wrong with the car, and even after explicit instructions NOT to repair anything without consent, will 'repair' all said 'problems', deeming them 'necessary', and YOU get to cover the charges.. Just a warning.

    Pros: Read review

    Cons: Read review

    Finally Got A Pt! — It's a love it or hate it car. I'm on the love it side of the fence and have been since they came out. It's a fun car, next one will be a turbo convertible! It's difficult not to smile while I'm driving this car. I hope they make this car for a few more years.

    Pros: Cool looking, good mileage, 5 speed.

    Cons: Underpowered
