Not As Cool As It Seems... — My husband bought this car before we met and it had problems from the start. It went through brakes like crazy, had all sorts of engine problems, it was hard to work on, and the body squeeks were annoying.

Pros: Comfy, roomy. We moved to Florida from Michigan with everything we owned in the back with the seats out.

Cons: Squeeky, top-heavy, went through brakes/tires like water, overheating issues, discolored bumpers, hard to work on.

Dependable Utility With Character. — If you like the look, don't need to win every red-light race and want something affordable, buy affordable, buy one. If you're worried about quality, don't. I put 70,000 miles on it before anything major needed working on.

Pros: Great utility, reliability. Quiet ride. Adequate acceleration. Great for hauling
kids, especially in a baby seat. Lots of leg and head room in front and back.

Cons: Ride can be a bit choppy at times with the Touring suspension. Eats brakes
pretty bad. Fuel economy could be better for the size of car.

Love My Car — i really enjoy my 2002 dream cruiser.i have had no problems in the 3 years i have owned it.i did make one mistake i bought new tires for and i didn't mention i wanted the same kind of tires that were on the car which were low profile tires,so they put regular tires on it.but i will return to the low profiles next time,they just help make the look of the car.i really hate to see chrysler drop the cruiser,but it will make the car worth more in later years,if you manage to keep one in great condition.as far as the copycat chevy's hhr,not even close.

Good Dependable Car, Low Maintenance, Fun To Drive, Has Terrific Cargo Space For This Size Vehilce — We bought the care new, almost on a whim in Sept 2001. Since then we've put 60,000+ on it, including several long trips. The car has a good ride, is very nimble (expcept for the poor turning radius) and has been trouble free. We replaced the lower cotnrol arms as they had worn out and the fornt brakes/ rotors.

Pros: Economical, handy cargo, good looking

Cons: poor turning radius

Woody Cruiser With Style, Form And Function. — The PT Cruiser was a phenomenon even before it came out. With retro styling and "Tall Car" 4 dr., hatchback practicality and rear seats that can fold up or be taken out completely, it filled many needs... a 5 passenger people hauler or cavernous mini-van. The sculpted, flared wheel wells sets it apart from any other shortish "Tall Car." There are many PT Cruiser Clubs around the country and parts are easy to come by since so many PT Cruisers are still on the road. The Limited comes with heated leather seats, a moon roof, tinted windows, roof rack. Gas milage comes in at 20 mpg. It has a 15 gallon tank that will ask to be filled every 280 miles. Only a handful of times have I push past 300 miles before refueling. In twelve years it's never left me stranded except for a dead battery... highly dependable :-)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Looks, especially with the Woody Package.  LImited Edition has leather and heated seats. Front passenger seat back folds down on itself allowing for an 8 ft. ladder / surfboard.  Rear seats fold up or come out completely for mini-van cargo hauling.  Solid feeling car.  Roof rack.  Factory tinted windows and moon roof are great features too!

Cons: Turning radius / gas milage

Sorry I Decided On Purchacing This Car. Never Again. — The only reason I got this car is because I thought it would be a good family car, and it was a GT (had some good options). The turbo laged, it did haul butt, braking was ok, and it handled like crap. The turning radius in better in a F-350 truck. This is a cheaply made car despite leather seats and deluxe options. I liked the sportier model, and would have liked to do some cosmetic mods, but just wasn't worth it. Gas sucked and I had to put premium grade into it so it wouldn't knock. It hauled balls, but it was still a crappy car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: GT model has horepower, and I like the styling.

Cons: Cheaply made, poor handling, unimpressed all around

Its a great care except for the battery drain, a mysterious problem read up in Car Guru and the problem fix is to buy a battery kill switch or sale and buy new car! Thats what I will do!
