    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.

    Love It, Just Too Small. — If we could fit our family in it, and tow a camper, we'd keep it. Now in the market for SUV or Minivan for our family camping trips. Would absolutely buy another Chrysler though. Anyone have a Town and Country they're parting with for cheap...let me know!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good fuel efficiency. No problems.

    Cons: Small interior for children.

    I Love It! — This is a great fun convertible, the turbo charging makes this car a fast nimble toy. Plenty of room for adults in the rear seat and a surprising amount of trunk space although I would suggest leaving the boot at home if you're filling the trunk with luggage.

    Pros: A cute little Rocket Ship. Fast, fun, yet very comfortable for road trips

    Cons: Blind spot on passenger side can make backing out of angled parking difficult with the top up.

    Stylish Pt — The 2005 PT Cruiser is a great car. Mine is the Touring Convertible Edition with the Turbo Engine. It cleans up beautifully and turns heads when the top is down. Accelerates fast, great on the highway, I couldn't be more happy with this car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Stylish, dependable, an overall great car.

    Cons: You have to bend down, and underneath the trunk lid, to access the trunk.

    Good Car For A Starting Out Family Or Someone Who Wants To Have A Little Fun With Friends. — It has room for 4 adults. It's pretty quick, but it tends to understeer. Average Chrysler quality (lots of plastic, some creaks, goes through o2 sensors like I go through watches. It is pretty cheap to maintain, but it is pretty piss poor on gas (23mpg babying it).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Room for 4 adults, quick, and great sound system (typical of Chrysler products it seems)

    Cons: Love/Hate styling, poor gas mileage, funky trunk design.

    If I Could Find Another One Like It, I Would Buy It And Keep It Forever Too. I Love This Car! — Cute interior and exterior - you can customize. 138000+ miles still like new. Brakes well, handles well, acceleration little slow bit of a rough ride. Hauls BIG things, mileage is about 25 city, 29 hwy. Some squeaks but easy to fix.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Workhorse, can customize to your liking, fun to drive

    Cons: it won't last forever, or will it?
