    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

    Mine — I have a lot of mods. It puts 280 hp to the wheels. I have broken 2 sets of half shafts. It is a rare getrag 5 speed. Same engine as a srt-4. Many people say it is the best looking crusier they have seen

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: turbo

    Cons: hard to work on under the hood there is not much room

    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.

    The Cruiser — I can throw the seats down and haul my Kayak to the lake!Gets around in the snow pretty good...hasn't needed any major repairs. The glove box and part of dash board matches the color of the car. It's semi-classy. Mileage is better then a truck. And the auto-window controls are in the middle above the radio.

    Pros: Bright Blue

    Cons: It's a Chrysler

    Pt Cruiser — Performance - A word that this car was not built to understand. Imagine driving a world war 2 tank with a Chevy sprint engine....Although, once you finally got up to speed it did handle really well. I still attribute that to the german tank weight Build Quality - Unlike the average Dodge/Chrysler I didn't find that this thing rattled right away. It seemed respectable Appearance - Grew on me quickly from pictures I saw...then we bought one.....not such a pretty thing up close Cost of Ownership - Didn't cost us a nickel other than gas. But it did like to use a fair bit of that....thinking back I would guess it ran low to mid 20's for us.....aweful Fun Factor - Ok once again once you could take acceleration out of the equation and just rip around corners it was alot of fun. It stuck to the road like my kids hands stick to his fork at supper. That really was my only positive memory of this car

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Everything else

    Good Car For The Money, I'm Keeping It When We Buy A New Car Soon. — Other than ripping 1 transmision out this car has held up better than the dozen new cars I bought befor it. It looks good in a old person sort of way, rides good seats dont make my back hurt (thats amazing for a cheap car) oh yea and there cheap.

    Pros: comfortable, small outside, lots of room inside, good gas mileage

    Cons: transmision locked up but was replaced free

    The P.t Cruizer. It Really Is Personal Transportation! — I love the room in this car as well as the versatility. Its a small vehicle but has the features of a mini van and small SUV all rolled into one. It may be a "Cruizer: but the turbo engine makes this thing go like stink and takes the corners with ease. It may be 5 years old but people think its new. The body has held up well and it runs like new. I love the leather interior and the heated seats in winter. The gas mileage is not bad for a vehicle this size and weight and It is easy to get in and out of for any one of any age. Although the ride can be similar to a truck this vehicle is fun to drive.

    Pros: I love this vehicle and would buy it all over again.

    Cons: You don't know how awesome this vehicle is unitl you get in one!
