    Very ergonomically constructed interior - I am 6’4” and it was in no way cramped or uncomfortable. Got our first one in September 2000, had to wait six months for it. Still driving our second 2005 GT Turbo - the turbo makes the car lots of fun to drive.

    I cant speak about this 2005 PT Cruiser. However I can tell you about the 2010 PT that I bought new. It has had only one repair in my 10 years of use; A fan motor in the air conditioner system. I can only say good things about this vehicle. Other than wear items like tires and one battery, nothing else repaired except the fan motor. I like the PT so much that i am looking for a Convertible model to use on warm, sunny days which is nearly 24/7/365 here in Florida. Good luck to all.

    Milk Truck, Cool Looking Car But Wouldn't Purchase Again — The performance was average and had problems with the transmission and shifter cable easily detaching, it drove well and the engine was solid. The seating space was reasonable, the rear hatch back was easy to use and the fold down seats a plus for cargo space. Engine quality was good, not so sure about the transmission though.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The ease of getting in and out, for the engine size it had great pick up and seating was good for total of 4 adults

    Cons: Had continuous problem with shifter (the cable would easily detach and I had it repaired twice) It was an automatic

    So Far Ok — I like the look of the car and it's very economical . Is a little engine noisy from inside the car not outside . Don't know if that's normal with these cars as I just bought it a few weeks ago . Drives great though .

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Economical

    Cons: Just bought it so to early to tell

    Great Little Car For Indivisual Or A Small Family — With a 0-60 of 7 second and a power top that only takes 10 seconds to put down, this is a very fun and roomy compact convertible. i do wish Chrysler had splurged a little more for the center dash, but with heated leather seats, it is overall an enjoyable car. wish it got better fuel economy though, i only average about 20 mpg

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty, well built, fun, cute, good trunk space for a convertible

    Cons: Torque Steer, cheap interior,

    Fun To Drive And A Geat Family Vehicle! — Very versatile vehicle, the back seats remove completely for more cargo storage. You can even move a couple of big screen T.V.s in the back or pick up a few things at Home Depot. Very functional and usable space. The limited Edition Turbo Wagon has the leather and suade interior which is awesome especially with the heated seats in the winter time. The Turbo loves the cold weather and cool air into the Turbo. Gas mileage is amazing I get about 27-28 on the Hiway and about 25 in mixed driving. The trick is you have to use 91 Octane gas. I also really like the interior space and ease of use of everything. Great car for the money! On a nice day you can open the Sunroof and hear the Turbo!!! Fun and Exciting car I would strongly recommend it!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The Limited Turbo Wagon is powerful and fun to drive and gets great gas mileage.  The heated seats are also nice.  Overall great car for the money and very reliable and dependable.

    Cons: Oveall very good car not a lot of cons to this vehicle.  Especially if you get the Limited Edition Turbo.

    Love This Car Just Need Something Larger — We have had this car since 2005. We bought it new and it has been a great car. The folding rear seats are great for camping. We would probably keep it if our family would fit. Looking to get a camper and need something larger.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Cute.

    Cons: Back seat gets very hot.
