Decent Car, But Chrysler's Quality Or Lack Of Shines Through — We've owned this car for just over 5 years, it has been pretty dependable. It had a few issues that were fixed under warranty but the service departments at the two dealers made me wonder if they knew what they were doing. While I can't speak for every dealer the 2 I've dealt with weren't very helpful. I had better luck doing it myself.

Pros: It drives pretty good, interior styling is kinda cool with the two tone black and red leather and color matched dash.

Cons: Under powered, tight engine bay which makes it hard to work on. Dealers service departments not very helpful.

Project Car — It still needs some improvements and upgrades. I just sold my Mitsubishi Eclipse GT and this bug is my new project. I hope to make a little monster out of it. The clutch just gave out, but I thinks the previous owner did not really know how to drive the manual transmission. I plan to lower the car and improve its stability by installing stability bars (sway bars). Then I want to install a Magnaflow exhaust system and improved downpipe and cat. The electrical system also requires a serious stabilization. I have a voltage stabilizer from my Eclipse. I will install it soon when I receive additional ground wires. I already installed new rotors and new ceramic pads. All in all, it should be a nice ride when I am done with it.

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

Pros: Size, US made, Turbo

Cons: Stability

Umm It's Awesome — I love this car, saw it on the lot and decided not to test drive and just buy and I was not let down. AWESOME!!!!!! It has it all performance, appearance (black, sleek, and sexy with the perfect flames of coarse). Turbo, don't want anything less than that. gas mileage is great. And it very fast.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything is awesome about my car

Cons: I cannot think of anything that sucks about my car.

Good Daily Driver — Acceleration is lacking. brakes are good and the car handles well. Repairs have been limited to regular maintenance and one accident. Due to my heavy foot, fuel economy isn't great. the leather seats are cold in the winter. Interior could use higher quality materials.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: roomy interior and affodable

Cons: poor acceleration, lack of heated seats

If You Don't Mind Everyone Questioning Why You Have A Pt Cruiser, Get It! — Its got a really nice interior. It's quite roomy. I really like how it handles too. Its overall just a great car. I have a few minor mechanical problems from time to time, but nothing I can't fix myself. Another thing is that it really stands out from the crowd, and for me, that is a good thing. It also drifts really nice too.

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

Pros: Its a really stand out car, and it performs great.

Cons: It apparently is supposed to have alot of mechanical issues but I have noticed none. It's also and old woman car!

My Old Car — Overall I really liked my PT, but with a little over 100,000 miles there was sure to be some problems. The check engine light came on and I took it to the shop four times and reset the system but the light kept coming on. Therefore, that was very annoying. Also, the performance tires that I had on the car looked great but had a LOT of road noise. But other then that the turbo charged engine was very fun to drive.

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

Pros: Turbo charged engine, sunroof, 6 disc CD changer

Cons: Road noise, handling

Terrible Car — I hated this car for many reasons. The transmission busted near the end but before that it was air conditioning issues. It just was not a well built car. Look up forums on it and you'll see I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Pros: The removable seats were a nice feature

Cons: Air conditioning, transmission, brake noises, etc.
