PT Cruisers are all flash and no substance. Do NOT purchase this car. It is trouble, like most Chrysler / Dodge vehicles. In the list of the best cars, Chrysler is consistently at the bottom and zero percent are recommended by leading consumer magazines. And they're predicted reliability is not good. Finally, can you name any Chrysler/Dodge car that's been sold and on the market for the last 20 years consistently? They have to keep changing the names of cars that become problem vehicles. So, you've been warned.
