    Eh. — Oh, it was decent, practical, had good storage in the back. Dependable. Ours had a rare 5-speed which was fun. It had a long shifter with a plastic ball on the end. It felt like an old fashioned stick shift. It did not get as good of gas mileage as we had hoped. Suprisingly.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Roomy for a car its size.  

    Cons: Boring, does not get as good of gas mileage as one would think.

    Very Practical, Looks Good & Fun To Drive! — I like the looks, I like the roominess. I do not like the turning radius,or the fuel mileage. The performance could be better, my wife's "o2 Camery has way more power & better fuel economy. I would say the reliability is better than average. It is a fun car to drive& I like how i fit into the car

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good car, Great looks, Very practical,,,

    Cons: could get better MPG

    Great To Have As A Starter Car. Dont Buy One New! They Dont Hold Value — Underpowered. Built good aside from crappy Chrysler rims. Looks nice. Costs nothing; uses standard gas and does not require any special oil are other maintenance. Doesn't get that great of gas mileage. Rides real quiet and smooth. Would recommend buying a used one.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great bang for buck

    Cons: Don't get for a gas saver

    Me And My Pt — There is not one thing I don't love about my PTC! If any improvement could be made it would be to add flames. This is a fun car to drive. Later models they screwed up the interior. The last perfect PTC models were made in 2002.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: It has a little dent.

    Alot Good, Alot Not So Good. But I Like It And Wish They Would Go Beyond 2009 — I like the styling and the handling. I wasn't expecting the handling performance. Nice suprise. No guts to this engine. I didn't get the turbo. Had to upgrade the coil, plugs, and wires to get about another gallon and a half per mile. Only about 25 mpg tops. Disapointing for a small car

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun and Style

    Cons: Poor gas milage and engine performance

    Best Retro Auto Design Ever — Break away from the ordinary! Styling separates this car from all other sedans. Surprisingly roomy with a very flexible cargo area. Fit and finish is quite good, except for early failure of chrome on wheels. Interior is retro but not luxo. A pleasure to drive, even on 2,000 mile solo trips.

    Pros: Solid acceleration and handling; great brakes

    Cons: 20 MPG City, 25 MPG Highway

    Pt (personal Transport) Cruiser — I love my PT Cruiser Limited Woody. The ride is smooth, untill the tires get out of balance. Gas mileage is decent at 19/21. It accelerates a little slow, but holds speed well. I give this car an 8 out of 10.

    Pros: smooth ride, good gas mileage, decent performance, sturdy, fits well in tight spaces, roomy

    Cons: slow to accelerate

    Fry Cruiser — Build Quality I don't think they have built a better car since for the price Fun Factor just like a BMW with a lot more cargo space Performance I can keep up with that BMW if I wanted to. Cost Of ownership Ive had minor problems but over all the car is very good.

    Pros: With a few Mods like suspension and K&N + a better Muffler this cruiser really dose cruise!!

    Cons: They stopped production of the cruiser
