I bought my 2001 PT Cruiser in 2003 with 36K miles. I love the sunroof and the shelf in the back. It was always fun to drive and while Chrysler was not known for reliability, I didn't think I had a lot of problems because I am attentive to maintenance. I have had my car for 13 years and gone from 36k miles to 172k and STILL love it.

Tremendous interior room and cargo hauling. High seating possition. Easy to drive. Love the styling. Nothing like it on the market. I have reluctantly sold the Cruiser after 16 years and 160,000 miles. Its replacement, Elantra GT, is just not the same. I still get heart throbs when I see a Cruiser on the road.

The design is poor, not a good snow car

My ex got this car used, at about 100k miles, for around $4k. From the beginning, I noticed that it seemed to have very poor suspension, and within a short time period the control rod and the tie rod ends started to fail on it. The car is now at 143k miles, and while the engine in it is still excellent and in good shape, the real Achilles heel of this car was its design. It was made for looks, and for mild climates; it's not made to last. The giant rear end on it seems to have proved too much for the frame design. The control rods went out twice over the 43k miles we had it: the suspension and ride were terrible, like a crackerbox really, and now that I'm dispensing with the car, the ball joints have failed, the tie rod ends (again), the CV joints have failed, all in the back of the car. Once it gets older, a bumpy road can cause steering to be tricky. The steering often pulled to one side, and the electrical system was also glitchy, failing several times in the rain, along with dead brake lights from time to time. I really don't recommend this for snowy climates. It's very bad in the snow; there isn't much clearance under the front bumper and it had a tendency to get stuck pretty easily. The high profile didn't handle wind well. As others have mentioned, the rims had a constant tendency to peel, and the tires lost air constantly. On the upside, it had good gas mileage and it never did break down completely on me. It was a dogged car, a good engine in a poorly made body, and if you're a car type in a warm climate who has the time and inclination to fix its little foibles I'm sure it might even be a good deal. The engine is still just cherry in it, it goes at a nice clip once it gets going. I don't hate this car, but it's been very expensive and troublesome mostly due to the frame, electrical and tire issues.

Work full-time and in school so money is tight. Had a 2000 4 runner over 185K. Only thing that car needed was an oil change, new tires and brakes. Bought a 2002 PT cruiser with 50K miles for 2500, thought it was a deal. Car is a nightmare. I've spent over 5K on that car: new radiator fan, tuneup, front suspension, missfire on a cylinder, oil pressure gauge and it still overheats. That car has been a nightmare. I will never buy an american car again. I'm currently looking for a new car and last car I will ever buy is a Chrysler or American made car.

Lovely, Lovely!

I bought my 2001 5-speed PT Cruiser on February 19, 2014, and it has been nothing but perfect so far! I only paid $2,500 for it, 85,000 mi, and numerous people commented on what good condition it was in (I had test drove another PT at a different dealer; it was higher priced and was in bad condition). I learned to drive stick in this car; it is particularly more easy to stall in this car than in other stick shifts. It's not very good in the snow, so it's best to wait until the roads are plowed and salted to take it out. I have a lot of tall friends (around 6 ft), and for being a small car it has a lot of leg/head room! It is also a dream to parallel park and is very spacious on the inside!

I have always wanted a car with a back-hatch (due to always owning large dogs). I purchased this car in 2011 with 132k from my mechanic. He combed through it with a fine tooth comb, so i knew it would be reliable. My car has leather seats, power everything and a sunroof. I enjoy the leather seats, being a dog groomer means lots of dog hair, but the leather is easy to clean. My only complaints are that the ride is a little noisy and rough (but i think it needs new shocks, being a 12 year old car), and i have had issues with the alloy wheels. the rims have slightly corroded (nothing visible to naked eye) but it was causing my tires to lose air regularly. bead seal was quick inexpensive fix.

Chrysler is #3 for a reason!

After owning a PT for 100,000 miles, I can only say it is an ok car. GM's 4cyls get better gas mileage and have more power. Ford's are more reliable. The turning radius is too big. The seats are hard, with only one arm rest for the driver and none in the back. Paint has lasted very well, it still shines. There are better options on the market that you should consider. I found out by my mechanic that this engine will be broken if the timing belt breaks

At first I loved my car it was everything I had been looking for! Drove it a little over and I have had to change the brakes ever 2 months. It started overheating about 3 hours away from home. Replace temperature gauge and water pump, A month later had to do it all again! This car is SOLD! Never again will I have a PT. Too many problems has about 50,000 miles. NOT reliable at all.

Bought in 12/2001. Now has 98K. Replaced suspension & exhaust w/better quality aftermarket. Car has no lean into curves like other PT's. Replaced 16x6 wheels w/17x7. Replaced air cleaner w/cold air box for more power & better sound. Sunroof glass shattered, brake caliper bent, bad LED light but no other probs. Always synthetic oil. Never a prob w/inspection. Disabled & it fits my needs perfectly. Cargo area will gobble up anything you want to put in it. Fits 4 tall adults w/no complaints. Can't really fit 5 because of load limit not because there's not enough space. 3 recalls all important. One of the best designed cars I've ever seen. Daimler cheapened subsequent years so avoid them.

A quote from the guy who sold it to me in 2002. I second it. At 227,000 miles, the trans failed, so it's time. It breaks my heart to send it away. Rest of the car is still like new. I've read the negatives, and maybe I was lucky. I did take care to maintain it. I just shopped around for new, and not car comes close to the interior design of the PT.

I purchased my Cruiser when they were first introduced and waited 9 months for it. It has been a very reliable car - I now have 169,000 miles on it and am running into issues. I need to replace the wheels due to corrosion of the wheels and shocks, struts, etc.. Considering how long I have had this vehicle and how many miles, I have had very little trouble with it. The paint has held up beautifully. I would definitely recommend the cruiser to others

Bought this one owner Limited Cruiser with 45,000 mi. on it and every option available incl. sunroof. It has 16" alloy wheels with Goodyear Eagle GT 205R55/16 tires on it and I am afraid to hit any potholes as it makes a loud clunking sound. The dealer told me that is normal for this type with sport suspension on it. No good for those who like a nice smooth ride.

Bought 2001 PT Cruiser in 2003 with 34,000 miles on it. At 86,000 overheating caused head gasket to blow. Went ahead and replaced water pump, oil pump, timing belt, all accessory belts while engine was torn down hoping to save some labor later on down the road. Cost to repair 1,792. 2 yrs. later started to lose oil.The bracket that holds water pump in place broke and moved forward into oil pump and timing mechanism. Had to replace water pump, oil pump, head gasket, timing belt, accessory belts etc AGAIN. $2,200 for repairs. 13 months later overheating AGAIN. Needs cooling fan. Cost $720. Sunroof motor $750. Rim corrosion. Cheapest found 350.00. REPAIR HOG!

I bought my PT pre-owned and loved it from the first second I drove it. The only problem I had with it was it dumped water in the back seats because of a/c but was covered by dealer. It holds up well in wrecks my daughter flipped it over going 60!!! That was the end for my favorite car but I had it 7 years and was planning on buying a new car anyways. It was a 5 speed manual, sun roof and loaded. It was great to drive everyday and I miss it.

I had to have this car when I bought it, and haven't regretted the purchase since. It's the biggest little car I've ever had (bought my first car in 1961). It's great in town - fits into small parking spots. And it handles well on the parkways and highways. The fact that it doesn't have the power of my previous 8-cylinder cars was a consideration when I bought it, but, for a 4-cylinder it does well, even at high speeds. It also handles snow and ice like a dream. Powers me through all kinds of winter weather.

I bought my first base model PT 4/15/00. It was the first privately owned PT in Fargo and only 1 of 2 in town for about 6 months. GREAT car! Traded in a 300ZX and sold an Explorer to get it. Sparks went out early, did have to do the radiator replacement at about 100k. Timing belt made it to 173k (OOPS). Replaced alternator at about 169k. Now the head gasket is out at 174k and time to get into a new car. Lo and behold I found "Silver Stud Deuce" PT but this is the 2001 Limited Edition with only 23,200 miles on it! What a gem! Somebody along the way didn't take the hood stand off b4 trying to shut it but that's the only blemish. Show room quality and even smells new!

If you want a car with one of the most awesome designs ever, in and out, and have alot of money to feed it gas, this is the car. Actually, the mileage is still better than a pickup truck but at 17 city and 22 highway, the V6 Mazda 6 and Buick LeSabre's I had later had way better mileage and more power. Chrysler always knew how to make cool looking cars and put crappy engines and cheap plastics in them, even in 2008. Reliability was pretty good though, outside of a broken vent knob (plastic!), cupped tires, and even after a "fix", the alignment was still off. This car never left me for dead though and it went on a 4000+ mile trip to the west three times. It was the perfect road car too.

My Dad owns a 2001 PT Cruiser Touring. I really like it and it's pretty comfortable and looks nice. I've heard for a such a small engine it has better power than expected. I do have some complaints though. First of all the gas mileage on the PT Cruiser is a joke. It is a Chrysler so it has a plastic cheap looking dashboard but it doesn't look too bad. It has no front center console or rear folding center console for rear seat passengers. The back seats are uncomfortable because they are very straight and not reclined back. The rear power window buttons are basically on the ground so anything on the ground can roll the window down without you knowing. Other than those its very nice.

Was love at 1st sight, I order it and waited months. Have loved driving it every since. At 199,000 miles she still starts like the day I bought her. I got the stick. The clutch held out until 165,000 mi. Had to replace the fan motor at about 100,00 and replace timing belt as general maintenance. If you take proper care and maintenance it goes for ever. It is fun to drive and handles very well on the curves. Took it to Ohio (3500 mi) and back when it had about 185,000 mi on it with no problems and that was with it filled from floor to roof and back hatch to front seats with boxes of my mother-in-laws belongings.

I've had my PT (Tom––Tom Cruiser) since the get go and can't say enough good things about it. Although it's been an accident magnet, it has survived several minor crashes and a major clash with wildlife and has done very well. My only complaint is that I keep my cars a long time (10 to 12 years, over 150,000 miles) and my little PT isn't holding up to age like I'd hoped. The wheels are a chronic problem for mine and several others I know. They corrode from the inside out and lead to slow leaks in the tires. The chrome peels away if the wheel is fixed. Radiators also seem to be a common problem. Body trim is popping off. So while I love my PT, Tom just isn't aging as well as I'd hoped.

I absolutely LOVED my PT Cruiser until I had a little accident. Apparently, they are very hard to work on due to the arrangement of everything inside. I hit a fire hydrant on the front right side and my insurance company wants to total the car even though it is fixable. The problem is the cost of the labor since it's so hard to work on. Other than that, I love the car! It's great for hauling large items since it's got removable back seats and it's always been really reliable. It was even pretty good on the ice in the winter time out here in Colorado! I would rather have my PT Cruiser fixed than have to try and find a car as good as this one!

I got my Cruiser almost 2 years ago. I fell in love with it's appearance. It is comfortable and great for traveling. I also loved that the seats can fold down or be taken out completely. One time wed went on a trip and were able to fit my 2 Dobermans, 2 mountain bikes, and 4 suitcases very comfortably in the back! I love the way the interior looks and I like that the passengers in the backseat have access to the window controls. It is a 2001 model, but I am getting a new car because in the 2 years that I have owned it there have been several problems, such as: replacing the head gasket, air conditioning went out twice, and now my dimmer lights turn on by themselves and run the battery dead.

I have loved this car from day 1, although it is not a gas saver as a lot of people would like to think. these cars lack power and get about 22 on the highway. I installed a cold air intake and I now get 24 to 25 mpg and a little extra oomph, only drawback is on heavy pedal it is loud (Air being drawn into intake) also had problem with trans at 48k miles and dealer would not help with cost, pump went out.

I ordered my PT Cruiser in 2000 and waited around 8 mo for it to arrive. It didn't disappoint. I still love my PT Cruiser seven years and 100,000 miles later. It only broke down once, just after the 30K warranty ended. The torque converter went. After writing to Chrysler, they agreed to pay 75% of the repair and towing bills. I purchased this car primarily for its comfort. I have a very bad back and can't do bucket seats. This car is extremely comfortable. This car has served me and my family very well. I'm not looking forward to purchasing a new car. Whenever I bring up the subject, my children are nearly moved to tears.

Bought car used with 77,000 miles on it. Over 4 yrs. Later love it even more. 153k and runs like the day I bought it. Replaced rear wiper motor ($43 reman) very easy fix and some suspension parts, expected. Hauled 25 cu. ft. Fridge while doing 60 on expressway, no problem. By far the most stylish, dependable, versatile vehicle I have ever owned. Decided to shoot for 200k+ so I did a little customizing. Plenty of options with this one

I purchased my PT cruiser when it was 2 years old. I had always wanted one. Thankfully an extended warranty was purchased because the transmission went on it two times and the radiator had to be replaced soon after I purchased the vehicle. Other than that, the car was perfect. I love and miss my PT cruiser. I was rear ended. My two children were in the back and did not have a scratch. My seatbelt did not hold me and my face went into the steering wheel. The car that hit us was totaled. All in all i loved my pt cruiser, even with its flaws... I am looking to purchase a pacifica

After 107,000 miles I still am very fond of this car. Like the cargo capability. Have had many approving comments from total strangers on the car and the color. (Aqua Marine) Will willing cruise at 80mph all day if you ask that of it. With the Touring Suspension it corners very nicely. Great little car. Wish Chrysler would freshen the styling a little.

I've had great experience with this car, now nearing its end. The car has always run well and trouble-free, except for a cat converter replacement at about 110,000 miles. It drives well for a tall car, and with a stick shift it is fast enough. Loads of room to haul stuff. (I can get a couple of mopeds in the back.) I think it has been much underrated for practicality and utility. People think only of style when they think PT's, but that is hardly the whole story.

I have owned my PT Cruiser for over 5 years, which is the longest I have ever owned a car. I can't find anything on the market that I like any better. I have spent less than $1,000 in repairs over 5 years and it is going strong. I'm sure when I buy a new car one of my kids will be driving it for another 10 years.

I was driving PT cruiser since they first appeared in 2001. I loved this car. Utility, fun to drive, look, everything is good. Except reliability. After 3 year and 15,000 miles I replaced rack and pinion. At 30,000 replaced computer, engine harness and other details. If you want this car, you must buy extended warranty, or better yet, keep it for only 3 years. I paid too much for not having extended warranty and Chrysler corp does not care. Finally got rid of it and no more Chryslers for me. Only imports.

Because the seats sit higher, you are able to enjoy an overall better view of the road. However, I wouldn't recommend anyone to purchase a PT Cruiser. The workmanship on the car is poor. The parts are of poor quality and break quickly. The price to fix the vehicle is outrageous due to its design. It is a completely unreliable car. I have owned the car for 3 years. It has brokendown and needed towed 4 times. Each time I was told that the part with the problem 'wears quickly' and 'it is not unusual to have it replaced'.

Our PT Cruiser was purchased new in 2002 and has been a blast to own as a daily driver. My parents even bought a PT Turbo. The design and build quality are first rate. People still stop me today and complement how attractive it is. The interior has loads of room and due to the multi-configurations of the seating can haul larger loads than expected. It is a mini, fuel efficient, SUV. The back seat height makes it comfortable for rear passengers to the extent that it is the preferred lunch transport for colleagues - and they are driving BMW 5 Series. I would recommend it to anyone seeking a well built, stylish, fun to drive alternative to the boring econoboxes (Civic, Scion, VW).

I've put 85,000 miles on this vehicle and it still drives well. It's been serviced for brake shoes, new tires, and the driver's side power window. I had to replace the radio at about 50,000. That's all. Not bad. Feels bigger than it is. Cruises well on the freeway at 80 mph. Still feels solid. Handles well for a FWD car. The build quality is more like a Honda than a US maker. Still no rattles.

Reliable, fun, safe, it's mechanically reliable until the 1st timing belt change,at 128k miles, and then the upgraded belt was installed, the door locks malfunction. Otherwise, the car is the best I've had since my driving experience. I started driving in 1971 and have owned many a Dodge,Ford,& Chevy, and one foreign, Suzuki. Especially, in the snow. It handles better than most SUV's of todays times,and most 4 X 4's. I'm looking forward to my next PT, in a year or so, a 5 or 6 speed, 250hp. My finances will hopefully get better and I won't have to finance, this is whats holding me back. Economically the best overall drive I've ever experienced. I'm sold.

So far I am absolutely thrilled with my new PT. What does PT really stand for anyways? Oh well, I've been wanting one since the year they came out with them...whenever that was? Seems like a long time ago. I bought another vehicle and was totally displeased...we won't go there. So far the PT is everything I'd hoped it would be and more, despite my families feelings against it. They rented one while on vacation and said they didn't like it. Said it was uncomfortable, they didn't like the window buttons locations...etc. Compared to what I was driving, a 1985 Honda Accord, the PT is like a slice of heaven. I'm taking it on a trip to Ga. from S.C. this weekend...we'll see how it does...

I bought my PT Cruiser after I had rented one and survived a night of terrible storms (tornado ratings) in the midwest. We were blasted by baseball sized hail and winds that rocked street signs, trees, and cars around us. I put the car in park turned off the engine and we rode the storm with no difficulty. I felt safe as I could have been in a home. I took my car half way cross country and never had a problem all the way. Thanks Chrysler for a great vehicle.

I work at a rental car agency and have the opportunity to drive many different new make and model vehicles. To date I have not driven one that give me as much pleasure as my PT Cruiser. This vehicle is comfortable, drives well, is great to look at and still turns heads. I have a 2001 model that I purchased used in 2002 with approximatel 8500 miles on the odometer. I now have a little over 40000 miles on it and I have not had any problems with the vehicle. The utility of the vehicle is exceptional, you can really load the back with bulky items such as a large 36in TV, by simply dropping the seats. All the people that have ridden in the car have been impressed by the ease of entry and comfort.

I adored this concept. Enjoyed driving it and was able to pack it with so much! I never took out the seats, but carried hot water heaters out of Home Depot with no problem. Only put 2 seats down.Clearly one of the most dependable autos I've owned. Seats are comfortable and keep you erect for long trips. Noise is average for me. I never expected a Cadillac/Mercedes. I bought this for trasporting small loads around and for basic transportation. A/C was OK. Never a problem, but in summer in FL, I sometimes felt warm in the start up process. Brakes rear seem to get a grind once you begin your day, but that goes away-rear brakes after you depress brakes once or twice.

I fell in love with the styling, read all the automotive magazine reviews and found an early model for sale in Florida while visiting my dad. I bought the car without a test drive, and was actually worried that maybe I wouldn't like it as much as the reviewers did. No fear, I love this car, for its versatility, driving ease, and comfort. Had it now 5 years and no problems - none. Still tight and solid feeling. Poor gas milage (22mpg average) is my only complaint. I hope that I can keep it another 5 years, but worry a bit about long term reliability issues of most American cars. It is not a German car but certainly better than I expected.

At first I loved this car, I 've had it for 2 years and I stay on top of it's maintenance. My biggest complaint is a common one; fuel economy (20-) and performance. Another major factor is its complete inability to drive in the snow (Connecticut). The power to weight ratio just doesn't work. It strains at highway speeds, especially uphill. It's a good looking vehicle with lots of functional space but I wouldn't buy it again without some design changes.

Rock-solid reliable: I owned the car for three years, and had no problems at all with it. It took a while to get used to the limited rear visibility, but that was no problem after a week or so. It's underpowered - even with a 5 speed manual. Handling is *terrible* in adverse conditions - especially snow. Strange masking tape marks appeared on the corners of the rear bumper. All that being said, I'd buy this car again in a second if I needed something that was both stylish and had the room to pack stuff in.

We have a 2001 PT Cruiser. While it's fun to look at it is seriously underpowered and has lots of issues. Despite that we have a "bumper to bumper" extended warranty, it never seems to cover any of the issues and each service is several hundred dollars a time and at least $100 to diagnose. The car has a VERY dangerous blind spot so you must adjust the mirrors exactly and take your eyes off the road to look behind you in both directions to change lanes. The car is so underpowered that it cannot make more than 60 mph up a hill with 2 people in it. The gas mileage is on its best day 20 mpg highway so don't buy this for fuel economy. If all you want is styling, this is the car for you.

The brakes have sounded horrible since I bought it and even when checked, am told no problem. I am going to replace the brakes shortly and put on better tires for winter.

Don't get me wrong, I loved my Cruiser. I really did. The body, the interior, the functionality and versatility ... they were top-notch! The problem lied in long-term reliability. I drive around A LOT -- full time job, 3 kids, family living far away. I spend a lot of time in the car and on the road. It couldn't keep up with me. After 78,000 miles, I was burning oil like gas, the shocks went, there was an electrical problem causing 1/2 the car to go dark, the transmission slipped going into 2nd gear and she creaked worse than my grandmother did! I had already spent over $500 replacing the radiator, and decided to let her go.

We liked the looks of the Cruiser but have found it hard to drive. It has large blind spots at the rear quarter panels and is grossly underpowered. We often have trouble getting up hills at highway speed. Also the fuel economy is not great, 20mph at best. Had we known these items we would not have bought the car.

This car has great body lines, turns a lot of heads, and at times can be fun to drive. My PT is 3 years old and is worth only $2000 more than what I sold my 1997 Neon for. It does not hold its value and all Chrysler dealerships are EXTREMELY UNPLEASANT to work with when dealing with problems (I've been to 3 different ones and had to embarass the manager in front of other customers to get the car fixed - and it was a SAFETY ISSUE). This is the last chrysler product I will ever buy and wouldn't recommend their products to any one...EVER.

The editors say that the interior is not very good. Have they seen inside a limited PT? Chrysler uses the same materials in my PT that they use in the Mercedes C-class! The only thing that is disappointing (especially now) is the fuel economy. I have after-market rims and my fuel economy has dropped to about 16-17 MPG

Not one minor thing has gone wrong with this car in the 4 years I have owned it. It is now one year out of warranty and I have paid $.00 for repairs. Superb for driving around the city; very easy to maneuver in traffic and park. Good on highway. Handles and corners like a sports car. Brilliant interior design - very flexible and spacious. Fit and finish better than my former Mercedes Benz 300E. It is still fun to own and gets much favorable attention. Very easy to enter and exit; good seating position for people with back problems.

I have purchased this vehicle and I will NEVER buy any Chrysler again!!! It was my second Chrysler and now I learned my lesson!!! This car gave me in less than 2 months apart $2500 worth of repairs. I took it to Chrysler Service and I felt "ripped off". First time in service was about $1000, and the second was about $1480. I had 60k mile warranty on this car, and as soon as it turned 61208 it started with problems. As if it had some computerized mechanism to do so. Go figure!!!

My used '01 PT was purchased a few months ago with high mileage - about 75k - from a dealer. It's a 5-speed, which really helps the 150hp engine with pick-up. The exterior is beautiful and seems so far to be well constructed and road-worthy. The interior is very comfortable, but has some odd control placements, and only the driver's seat has a center arm rest. For such a high mileage car (for it's age) this baby has been a cherry piece. It still drives like the newer model I test drove, and is quite fun to pilot. Gas mileage could be better (I average 23), but it could be worse. All in all, excellent buy. I may well consider another.

It rides well, long road trips great, have to watch the speed, easy to go 80!. Good for 3 people with luggage, 4 not good. Also needs better room for golf clubs!

Zero problems in 80000 miles. Car is as tight now as it was new. Car is as comfortable now as it was new - no noticeable wear on anything except brakes and tires. Car drives as well today as it did new. Paint and interior look as good today as they did new. Spends most of its life outside subjected to the elements (salesman's car). Versatile as a minivan without the bulk. Only service has been recalls and routine maintenance. Liked it so well we bought another only a loaded Limited this time.

Having the first is always a gamble, but this vehicle has been 100% spot on. From delivery to over 30,000 miles: zero defects, zero problems. Change the oil and enjoy. Loaded with everything on it except the roof rack. Everything continues to work perfectly. From cross country trips with 4 adults, to hauling sod, Its been hands down excellent. Could you find a better vehicle? I'm sure you can... for twice the money. The dealer experience has been outstanding. Would I buy another? You bet! But this time with the turbo.

Actually, it is a loaded Touring Edition. I wanted this car for three years and it has lived up to my expectations. What I love most is the design and attitude. Three years after the Cruiser first appeared on the street, it still turns heads. I do not find it disturbingly underpowered, and my two large dogs can walk around the rear with the seats down. If kept clean and shining, this car makes people smile. I'm all for that!

I ordered my PT 6 months before the dealers could sell them (early July- 1999) and I loved it. Now at 61,000 miles and driving from Illinois to West Virginia about 2 times per year I'm not sure I would buy another.... I love the classic style and the "look" you get from someone who thinks your customized cruiser kicks butt, but the overall durability is quite lacking...

This is a fun car to own. Cruiser owners seem to be somehow linked once on the road. It is common to exchange a "thumbs up" when passing a Cruiser. I am disappointed in the performance and the gas mileage to the point of wanting to sell the car although I will be holding on to it.

Love this car!!

I have always wanted a PT Cruiser, and the opportunity finally presented itself, I am thrilled! I own and ride a Harley, and feel the same excitement and anticipation of customizing this car and owning it forever, that I did and do about my bike. I have found myself giggling outloud while driving, hopefully the tinted windows hide my apparent newly aquired insanity :p.

Would be great if it had a real engine.

The PT Cruiser is just too heavy for 150hp and 146ft/lbs of torque. Chrysler also needs to address the drivability issues caused by turning the AC on. A car in this day and age that labors over its AC compressor is just not acceptable. Otherwise, a cool, well-built car.

PT Cruiser, a great little car.

I find the PT Cruiser a very versatile auto. I purchased a new clothes dryer and a new dishwasher and a compound miter saw and transported them home all at once plus my wife and myself. Gas milage is not the best, (around 20 to 24 mpg). The ride is a sporty ride. I recommend this car to anyone who wants to have fun while driving.

In 16 months and over 18,000 miles I've had absolutely no problems. The utility, style and drivability of this car makes it the most fun car I've ever had. It is indeed "too cool to categorize".

Performance is normally thought of as being very objective, determined by a stop watch. But performance can also be subjective. The PT Cruiser with four adults on board going up an incline is not going to accelerate much. But the PT will usually end up at the next red light with all the "jack rabbits" it was with at the previous red light

TOO MUCH HYPE

I bought a 2001 PT Cruiser Limited Edition in March 2002. Since it was last year's model and the 2002's were in, I got a good deal. It is very fun to drive and has better acceleration than many V-6 engines I have driven (5-speed). There is plenty of room for tall adults in the front and back and there is plenty of storage space. The look and design on the interior and exterior are great. Though I have put only 6,000 miles on it so far, it has been a reliable car.

MY VERY OWN PT CRUISER

I have had a ton of fun driving my jet black PT.CRUISER. It looks awsome when its cleaned up. Everywhere I go everyone is staring trying to see in, to see whos driving it. Now everyone knows it's mine, I live in a small town so of course evertime they see me they have to ask about it. I was the first to get one here, now there are 4 more in my town, but not like mine. Every time me and my husband decide to go somewhere we always chose my PT. to drive. I will not go anywhere unless I'm in it. To sum it all up its the funnest and greatest vehicle I have ever owned.

It's a Fun Little Car

Although somewhat underpowered, I set the cruise at 75 on the highway and have no problem. The kimited is pretty heavy and therefore rides very confortably - it also really affects the gase mileage.

I LOVE MY CAR!!! That is plain and simple...Just would like a V6, it is a little sluggish but once you get going it is great! Mileage is "average" at best...but I don't even mind that, I just love driving it, looking at it and showing it off!!!

The Best!

The styling of the car rekindled a "need-to-have" feeling that I had not felt since I bought my first 240Z back in the early 70's. I finally found my Patriot Blue Limited in January 2001 (when dealer stock was non-existant and the norm was to price it at up to $5000 over MSRP) but I had to drive over 200 miles away from home to get a reasonable price. Then the fun began ... New Tires (Potenza RE730), Shifter Kit, Headlamps etc. Still get people doing doubletakes when they see the PT go by ... Buy it, Drive it, Love It !!!

Excellent vehicle. Great brakes and yes the 4 cyl. does have enough power unless you continually climb steep mountains. The engine is a little to loud in a buzzy 4 cyl. way for this type of vehicle.

2002 Ltd has 7000+ mls on it. Sure it has a lot of features for the price, but what is with the build quality? Drivers window rattles from day one. About 3000 mls lower dash lights stopped working. At 7000 mls the vehicle rolled backwards in park with key out of the ignition. And most recently I had an accident from brake problems at highway speed. But Chrysler had a special investigator look it over and he said he couldn't find any error codes. So in his opinion there is nothing mechanically wrong with it. Good for him, he can have the car. I will NEVER drive it again. I am trading it in, and it looks like Chrysler is unwilling to help me at all. How very Ford/Firestone of them.

Great Experience

I have never had so much fun owning a car. My wife and I have met so many new friends that own Cruisers. It is a lot of fun to drive, especially when we cruise with other Cruiser owners. It's like we have joined a wonderful new community.

I've owned my PT Cruiser for almost a year and it still makes me smile every morning when I hop in. I still get stares, looks, and waves every time I drive and questions almost everytime I stop to put gas in it. Great value for money unless you expect a street rod.

Had it for a year now. Still an absolute blast to drive. Build quality is exceptional for price paid. Nothing rattles or sqeeks. Seats are comfortable and interior is roomy. Really like how flexabile this car is and, obviously, how cool it looks. We still get stares!

I drove a '96 Jag and my husband was in the market for a new car. One day when the Jag was in the shop (again!) they gave me a PT Cruiser as a loaner. I loved it, told my husband he could drive the Jag and bought one a week later. I've hauled a sheet of Wonderboard, a 9'x 12' carpet, kids, pets, etc. It's like a van but much cuter and sportier! I love this car!!! Mine is Inferno Red to match my cell phone. Great for all my soccer mom type of driving and hauling.

Edmunds and other no-it-all links pan the performance. It is certainly quick enough for us, although a little less thirst at the pump would not be remiss.
