Bought new. Very dependable little car. Lost the transmission with 155K showing. The timing belt replacement was a lot, but for a "throw away" car, it's been fantastic. So much that we're looking a Chevy Trax because it reminds us so much of the Cruiser, BUT, the Cruiser is here to stay. Still looks and drives pretty good (a good "ten footer" now). Wish we had gotten the turbo. Will make a great spare now.

I purchased my 2004 PT Cruiser GT a year ago after an auto accident had totaled my 2001 Ford Escort (no great loss). I had driven one previously as a rental in Florida and fell in love with it. When I bought it a year ago, it was fully loaded, all chrome, leather interior, great sound system, automatic seats, sun roof, spoiler, etc. It was a one owner vehicle and had around 55,000 miles on it; I paid about $6,000 for it.

Wife owns one of these, so I get a chance to drive occasionally. Not overly impressed with this car, but don't hate it. Acceleration is average, but the engine seems under-powered for the weight of the vehicle. The turbo version is better. Wife's car is auto-perhaps the 5 speed is better suited for the engine. Working on vehicle is difficult for many tasks given that engine is tightly wedged in compartment-changing timing belt and water pump is a real nightmare-I let the dealer do that job :) Styling is ok-wife likes it better than I do. That being said, it is pretty roomy on the inside-can easily fit 5 adults and cargo. Fuel economy suffers due to weight of vehicle.

K, so i bought this inferno red 2004 pt cruiser gt with a premium sound system a year ago for my gf when someone totaled her focus, then we broke up and i kept the car because i was making the payments. Well ive but a crap load of asome bumper stickers on it, these awsome momo TEN-S black wheels on it, had the windows tinted, and every friday night me and my frreinds pile up into it and we go out cruisin and clubbing, i <3 this thing, we crank up the radio and roll all the windows down, its so much fun, i call it a chrysler party cruiser, i even actually have vynl stickers tht say party cruiser, and the way i take turns and sometimes DRIFT youd think the body was gonna fly off the chasis.

Chrysler transmissions are fine they require proper service that means use the mopar fluid and change it when recommended. If you are not a mechanic don't mess with it. My pt has 70,000 mi. With no serious problems. The downstream o2sensor went out simple fix. A/c needs one can of Freon a year no big deal. Mileage isn't great but it's adequate I get 17 city and 24 hwy remember it's a wagon and it's heavy.

I bought my PT GT used with about 37k miles. After the dealer performed a realignment the handling became quite good. I have been in a few low-speed front impact accidents, and the car has protected me quite well and been repairable. In a region of weather extremes (-20 to 105 degrees), I have never once been unable to start my car, outside of my effort to stretch more time out of my battery (college student). I commute to school, about 800 miles a week the last year, and the PT GT is quite an able speeder; it merges quickly and confidently on the highway and can hold 80 mph at a mere 2500 rpm. Much of the car is rock-simple, but the vitals (engine, drivetrain) are rock solid as well.

I bought this car with 13K miles on it, back when Consumer Reports actually recommended the Cruiser. The first two years were OK, but then disaster struck. The whole shock system went down, struts, bushings, brakes, and everything else had to be replaced at around 50K. The next summer, my transmission went KAPUT. Luckily, the car was still under warranty. Now, I've discovered that all the struts, bushings, axles, and rotors need to be replaced again. This car has caused me to have nightmares about driving it down hills, and then going totally out of control and careening around corners.

I had a 2001 Hyundai Elantra before this car and never had as many issues as I've had with the PT Cruiser. Granted I purchased it used, but within two days of purchasing it the mechanical issues began. I've had to replace the torque converter, battery, PVC hose, a torn CV joint and front left axle. It makes a grinding noise between 45-60mph, vibrates during idle and starting first thing in the morning, and this morning it almost stalled on me while driving 75mph. It's also very uncomfortable. I feel like I am sitting on a bag of rocks. This is the only car I've driven where you have to push up for the wipers, not down and the window controls are in the center of the vehicle.A true lemon

Bought my car used w/low miles. The brakes have always squeaked, had checked twice for the same thing. They say they just squeak. Oil pressure light has come on several times for no apparent reason. Check engine light comes and goes. Couldn't find out why. A/C went out the end of last summer, I live in TX and need air. Now my ignition will not turn either way, so I can't drive the car. Mileage is the same as I got in my Grand Cherokee Laredo, maybe not as good.

for a small car with a short nose one of the worst cars to make a u turn with,needs a city block!!! I had engine mounts replaced at 38,00 now at 60,000 find out they are gone again. $400.00. Had some leaks in my d/w took it to the dealer found out leaking from rack and pinon which had to be replaced and solenoid which had to be replaced. I had the extended warranty as my car only came with 3/36. Cost me 300.00 with deductive,front end alignment and power steering flush. Trouble with the a/c 2x the warranty covered less deductible. The car had 6,000 miles on it and had never been titled used as a demo? Cheated out of 1 year warranty backdated

I like my cruiser, but I feel leery of the reliability. I've replaced the control arm bushings at 50K miles(known problem) and now the transmission went at 65K miles. Luckily the tranny was covered under the 7/70K warranty for a $100 deductable. Just an FYI for anybody buying a used one, Chrysler will let you register the car for warranty coverage even if you are not the original purchaser(I’m technically #4). I registered mine right after I bought it in 12/08. Just call them and say you want to register. Might just be the 7/70 warranty (2003-2004), so check. I'm not sure I would buy another one, especially when I drive about 20K miles a year.

My problem is that I have had multiple front end and suspension problems. In four years I have had multiple wheel bearing, three sets of lower control arms and numerous trips to the dealship complaining about the rattle in the front of my car. Now I have more suspension problems, a broken motor mount and a blow head gasket. It is a shame because I really love my car just hate the poor design.

This was the best car I've ever owned. 61,000 miles on the odometer and not a single problem with it, not even a light bulb. The high output turbo matched to the 5 speed Getrag transmission would put an ear to ear smile across my face every time my right foot headed for the floor. Towing my two waverunners or my fishing boat was a breeze and the temperature gauge never budged from midpoint. When it was tire change time, I upgraded to a 215/50R17 size Conti Contact and the vehicle just got even better. The start of my review stated "was" the best. After getting tangled up with a Porsche on the highway, I slid sideways off the pavement at 65 plus mph and ended up rolling the car.

I couldn't wait to get a PT after the bad taste my previous dodge had left...however, this car is just as bad if not worse. In 2006 extensive engine work had to be done and in 2009 extensive work had to be done to the engine again.........the car only has 55k miles and the oil is changed as it is supposed to be.......wish I knew what the lemon laws were......this will be my last Dodge/Chrysler auto!

Have manual transmission, & has been the best MPG of any 4 cylinder vehicle I have owned - 33 mpg is top, but consistently get 30 mpg. (Keep records at every purchase.) Removed the back seats (takes a minute) & gas mileage went up by aprox. 3 mpg. Actually feels better on road without back seats. Hauled a washer, dishwasher & 8 ft 2x4's in it with no problems (hatch closed). Has more cargo room than Jeeps & Chevy Trackers. No repairs (normal maintenance) or problems. Do my own oil change, & love the access to oil filter and plug. Wish all vehicles were that accessible. Plugs: only use standard, not platinum: these will cause running problems. Love it and want to get 2nd!

I bought this car because of high gas prices and my Explorer was a gas hog. This car is a blast to drive with the turbo. Nice interior with chrome accents and leather and suede seats. Platinum silver exterior paint looks real nice with chrome wheels. Was surprised with fuel mileage, only gets 21 city. Should do better. Brakes squeak when you first start out but stop after a few stops. Checked brakes and they have no wear, a mystery. But overall a great car for price. Only $9000 with 32,000 miles and loaded.

My wife and I bought this car brand new, but it has had problems ever since and Chrysler refuses to cover them. Wheel bearings and control arm bushings went out at 36,700 miles, BEFORE the tires. It also has a stalling problem, that nobody seems to be able to figure out. I will not buy another Chrysler. That's for sure..

We purchased our 2004 PT (new) in Feb 2005. We are currently at 64K miles & are not happy campers. We have had 4 service calls for engine jerking when starting the car. Dealership did a tune up and changed spark plugs the first time. Back to the dealership 21 days later (same problem), changed the spark plug wires (warranty). Back again 45 days later because of defect with the new spark plug wires (warranty). Now we are back again, but we are out of warranty. We had to replace the tires at 30K miles. We were told (by the Goodyear location) that the back end is out of alignment (from the factory) and cannot be fixed. We have 2 Hyundais with +160K and have never had service issues!

The car starts well runs well accelerates well. Short wheel base makes the ride on poorly maintained roads is somewhat rigid. Winter driving is good. Trips to northern Michigan are pleasurful,gas mileage 28 to 30. City short drives with air on in is as low as 17mpg. Only poor features , Horn that belongs on a childs peddle car and recessed speedometer shadows does not make reading easy. Would Irecommend the car to others? Yes .

A good car, strong and reliable. Great around town, and fine on the freeway. The only problem we've had is with the idle when the AC is on, but if you turn the AC off it's fine, and we didn't notice this when we first had the car so maybe it's the AC.

Purchased the car new in 2003. The HO turbo makes it a blast to drive. The Auto-Stick is useful for holding a gear while descending hills. The car still exhibits good NVH, no squeaks, rattles, nor wind noise. The car was taken back to the dealer only once under warranty for a blown audio speaker.

I just bought the car a few weeks ago with 40,000 miles. Thank god I bought an extended warranty because it is already going to the shop. My wife noticed a hesitation in the acceleration while driving down the highway, the new brakes make a lot of noise, and the engine makes a squealing noise at cold start-up until engine is warm. I hope that this isn't the beginning of endless problems.

We just purchase a 04 PT Cruiser Platinum Turbo. Car listed for over $26k, and we purchased it for 1/2 price with only 20k miles. This car is still a 'Head Turner' and the dark gray platinum paint with all the chrome accents make a great package. The car has great acceleration, and still gives adequate gas mileage. This is the swiss army knife of autos with all the different configurations.

My cruiser is very dependable, it had a little over 10,000 miles when I bought it and 15 months later it has almost 50,000! I like driving it, but the seats have to be the most uncomfortable seats I've ever experienced. Like a park bench. And it has no guts at all, none. The fuel economy is very poor. Much worse that the sticker said. The fun part of the car is all the extras that you can get. Unfortunately, the resale value is a joke. If you purchase from a dealer, after the 1st year, your upside down & it won't be worth even close to what you owe on it.

After test driving a number of vehicles, I ended up purchasing the GT Turbo. The GT turbo has all the attributes that you find in a more expensive car, but most of all it provides for great flexibility. You can configure the interior to haul five adults and or items. It is extremely roomy in side, allowing entery into the vehicle ,with out whacking your head into the roof line, which is unlike other Chysler products. Contrary to other writers, I have obtained 20 miles to the gallon in the city, which I think is acceptable, for a 215 horsepowered vehicle.

This car was very reliable and I never had a problem with it, but is horribly underpowered. The gas mileage is awful as well. I was actually scared a few times getting on the freeway because I couldn't accelerate fast enough. I will never buy another PT Cruiser. To top it all off, the resale value is a joke. The car was not even worth half what I paid for it just 2 years earlier. I just bought a Toyota Camry and what a difference. It gets great gas mileage and can actually accelerate up a hill. I hope the next PT Cruiser has some power, and better resale value, because I really do like the styling.

Unfortunately my experience has not been great. Although everything that has been wrong with it is somehow related to the wheels so this could just be a Friday car. Even at the dealership they couldn't understand why the wheel bearings were falling out or the brakes wore prematurely (there was a notch worn through them). I love the style and I love the versatility. Gas mileage isn't great for me average 19-20.

This has been an awesome car for us. Reliable and safe. Fits all of us nicely. Even I love to take it out without the wife, and have a little fun in town. It is definately a very underestimated performer. I have shocked more than a fair share of Mustangs and import tuners. I'm 6'2" and 235 lbs and I don't feel cramped in the drivers seat. We bought used with 2000 miles on it. It was a lemon law car from Pennsylvania. It was supposed to be some random electrical problem, but none was ever found. This car hasn't so much as hiccuped in the year we have had it. Will buy another Dream Cruiser this year or the next.

My Electric Blue PT is just a terrific car value. At just under $15,000 this "BASE" auto has Air Conditioning, Power Windows..Power Brakes, A CD player with 6 speakers, a spoiler, deep tinted windows and alloy wheels. I really wanted a 5 speed manual for the fuel economy and the dealer was happy to sell it because most people today want the automatic transmission. (I think this car had been sitting for quite a while just because it was a "standard" transmission) Even with the 5 speed..fuel economy is not too good. Some owners I hear average less than 20mpg with the automatic. The fit & finish on these Mexican made cars are just outstanding! The interior is full of top grade materials too!

A small car I can fit my 6'3" frame in comfortably! Great room, lots of power with the stage I upgrade. Fun car to drive and just Cruise in. Well built car still really solid after 24,000 miles. Gas mileage is better than I expected based on the weight of the car and what I'd heard.

Our Dream 3 Cruiser is the best car I've ever owned, that's number one out of 62 cars !! This two-tone, turbo, leather interior is quite a car. 25K miles and not one problem of any kind. Mileage in the 26/27 mpg range consistently. And more power than most could appreciate. Perfect car to 'dress' up and is always getting attention whereever we go. Changed tires from the factory originals and what a difference it maeks - now even quieter and faster ! This car is just simply hard to beat regardless !!! Just hope Chrysler doesn't mess it up in it's next generation . What a car !!!!!!!!

Comfortable and roomy. Seating is excellent, seats fold and remove for more space although they are very heavy. Mechanically sound except for an occasional miss in the engine too infrequent to worry about. Back brakes squeal, took it into the dealer and $30.00 later I was told there is no problem with them and they continue to squeal. Gas mileage is lousy and acceleration is poor. I knew these problems before I purchased it and its pretty much the same across the board, ( gas mileage and acceleration) but am happy with the car, would recommend it to other people, and would probably buy another one.

The PT is one of the best vehicles for the money that I have owned. Road noise is minimal, with no vibrations, rattles, etc. The interior comfort is adequate, with lots of headroom and leg room. I am 6ft/260 lbs. and am very comfortable in the driver's seat. The only problem I have had was a "skip" in the engine - the dealer replaced the plugs and plug wires (free) and that took care of the problem. Gas mileage averages 28-30 highway and 19-20 city. The best feature is the versatility of the cargo space. I do clowning/magic shows, and the storage space allows me to carry all of my props with easy access. Distinctive body style also appealed to me. This has been a wonderful car!

Awesome Ride!

I had this car only 3 days before it had to go to the shop. Over a six month period it was in the shop 7 times for check engine light. The first 6 months I owned it I had to have a rental car a total of 2 weeks. These cars are very poorly built (in Mexico). Also, there is a lot of road noise. The stereo is barely audible on the highway. I will never buy another Chrysler.

The car has been a huge disappointment for us.The gas mileage is much worse than our ford escape.The seats are like sitting on a rock and they are very uncomfortable.The icing on the cake was when the windshield suddenly cracked while my wife was driving. There were no vehicles on the highway at the time. We took the car to a glass place and were told there were no stone chips and they suggested we take the car to our dealer as chrysler may cover the cost of a $900 windshield.They felt it was a stress crack. The dealer told us the warranty for glass is 20,000 kilometers and we were over that so were out of luck.We have contacted chrysler and are waiting for a response.

this is one fast car. engine feels like a v6 rather than a I4. lots of pep for tackling hills and overtaking with stock ECU. stock HP and torque numbers are impressive enough (220HP / 245 ft-lbs.) but i installed the stage 1 upgrade. the 17" rims with 50 series tires inspires confidence when taking corners. impressive cargo space. gotta love that versatility. turning radius is too wide for this vehicle but that's the tradeoff for having larger rims. the stock goodyears breakaway immediately on rain-soaked roads.

I've always driven larger vehicles and after looking at several PT's I decided on a Platinum series. I was suprised by the pep the turbo adds and the 'roomy' interior. I've driven the car about three months/2000 miles now. People constantly look and ask qestions. The car handles well. The headlights are bright, unlike our Caravan. The local gas mileage is at 18. Highway, well I've travelled across state once and the mileage wasn't much better. Probably due to the fact I couldn't contain myself. The car is a pleasure to drive. The mid-range acceleration is so smooth and quick. Yikes!!! Maybe the next road trip I'll set the cruise. Until then . . . .

Versatility is great. Can be used to haul larger items with fold down or removable rear seats. Head room is fantastic! I would categorize it as in between a SUV and Mid size. I can put 4 large adults in this car very comfortably! Great stereo! Easy to use cruise control. Economical for every day use!!! Quiet ride - no rattles or shakes! Corners extremely well. Handles excellent in snow with Front wheel drive. Long distance milage 30 MPG. Accelerates strong. No problems to fix!

I bought this GT June 2004 the sticker was well over $26K absurd for this car! While paying far less it was still way overpriced for a econobox. Resale value is abysmal! I decided to sell the car after 3 months of liking it and the next 6 realizing it was a poor choice. Those who claim not to have engine noise must have the stereo turned up. On the highway Chrysler's poor insulation with elevated DB levels and wind noise. Shut the doors tin can sound. Besides the Leather seats interior trim materials are cheap. Engine warning light turned out be a wire upgrade with plugs no factory notice. My suggestion get a Subaru WRX if you want performance and quality in a small car.

I remember this cars info commercial. I really liked it then. Then the WRX came out and I forgot about the PT. Now that I'm married with a child the PT looked like a good choice. But, my wife did not want a hatchback. So, we were looking at small cars like Hyundai Sonata or Dodge Stratus. Loved the Sonata but out of my price range. (broke college student) When an old friend at a dealership pointed it out I thought my wife would shoot it down. Instead the willy old carsales man gets her into a Turbo Touring and she fell in love. We could not afford that one without braking the bank. They did have a certified used Non-turbo Touring. we bought it for less than $12,000. we love it.

My wife and I both loved the styling of the PT Cruiser, but during test drives and renting one on a Florida vacation decided that we'd buy one if Chrysler ever put a real engine in it. Well, they finally did it!! In 2004, Chrysler put in a 220 horsepower turbocharged 2.4 liter four banger and followed it with a Getrag 5 speed tranny and limited slip differential. Who woulda thunk that my wife parked her chic car Cabrio and won't let me get the keys to the PT-GT. She comes home with reports of blowing the doors off Mustangs and the like. Good thing it has traction control!! Like the car you ask ?? No, we absolutely LOVE this car!! It tows our 2 jet-skis or our 16 foot jet boat with ease.

This car is fun to own. Performance is very good although it needs a 5th gear in the auto box. There is almost no road or engine noise at any speed. Reliability so far has been perfect (7500 miles). It rides and handles well and is comfortable inside. Mileage is good for performance - 22 around town and 27 on the Interstate.

This is my 2nd buy of a PT Cruiser. My first one I loved (2002 Silver Ltd with Manual Transmission). I traded it in after 53,000 miles. After one test drive of the 2004 GT (Auto Stick/Turbo) I was sold on it. The Horse Power boost is incredible & a usable range for everyday driving. Autostick feature allows almost complete clutchless control on wet or snow surfaces or is fun to use when you really want to drive.

This is a fun car to drive and with the turbo it will really get going. Two major gripes that I have is one, the blind spots are insane on this vehical and two, the cup holders will only hold a standard size can or bottle. If you drink fountain drinks that have cups that are larger than average like a big gulp you are out of luck. Other than that the car runs and drives great in my opinion. One other thing, if you smoke don't forget to bring your own ash tray, because it is not equipped with one.

This car is great when it comes to comfort. The gas mileage matches my 2002 manual transmission Ford Ranger. The cruise control could be in a better position. Transmission is a little jerky between 0-20. Front wheel drives are usually like that with 4 cylinders wound tight. When matched to a manual transmission, they will do that. Great room for passengers and storage. Smooth and quiet ride. Great handling on 15 inch rims. Factory sound system stinks.

My "gal," and yes, she has a name, that is tradition, you understand, is my "retirement" vehicle, and the first brand new car I have ever owned. I have driven her in all kinds of environments----mountains, desert, city driving, freeway trips, and she has done a grand job for me. On a road trip I got 26 mpg overall, not real impressive, but had a huge variety of types of roads, etc. including some real mountain climbs, so felt she did herself proud. My "gal" has no turbo, just really a rather Plain Jane, but is just a dream to drive. Would make the same choice again. I love my "gal."

With more than 150,000 miles, and two grandkids, my wife’s ’95 Lincoln Town Car was showing it’s age in the form of repair bills. Its replacement would have to offer good mileage (something the Town Car didn’t), versatility with regard to storage (the Town Car has one heck of a trunk), comfort (a Town Car signature trait), and style. It had to fit in with a stable of “Retro Vehicles”, which includes a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500, a 2003 Jaguar XJ8, and the venerable ’95 Town Car. The black, 2004, turbo, Touring Edition, with the chrome package fit the bill perfectly. My wife’s only question is: “Should I drive the black Jag, or the black PT?”

I love this car! It's fast, fun, and comfortable. Plus, it's really practical for hauling stuff (that's the story I told my wife, and I'm sticking to it). Almost no turbo lag (pulls hard from about 2000 rpm), nice handling with a little body lean in curves, but it's a tall vehicle, so I expected that. I also drove the Limited turbo, but liked the seats in the GT much better. I've had lots of compliments on how nice and how comfortable the interior is. If this car is as reliable as PTs seem to be, it will be my favorite car ever.

I loved that car for a number of reasons, but the fact that I survived such a horrible crash (crushed between two trucks at the front and back) with only some muscles aches... have I mentioned that I loved that car? After I cleaned out my old Cruiser, I went to the dealership and bought another one. I've owned my new Cruiser for about two hours now!

The gas milage could be a little better, but we figure when it breaks in a little bit, that will improve. The handling is very responsive. The design and fuctionality of the vehicle is top notch! So far we are very impressed with everything about the car!

Switched from my very reliable and fun 2002 base PT Cruiser to a 2004 turbo. Car is almost identical which means great looking, extremely practical. The Cruiser must be one of the greatest examples of a cool looking car that is also fun, fairly economical, comfortable, handy in traffic and to park because it is so short, and up to whatever task I throw at it. After mediocre experiences with earlier Chryslers, my 2002 was extremely well built (never had a single problem) and the new 2004 GT seems at the same level.

I just bought my PT and it was the best purchase that I have ever made. The only thing wrong to the poor gas mileage for a small car. I recommend the PT to anyone who wants to buy one.

Perfect car for me!

I am a traveling saleman. This car is the perfect size to get me through traffic and is very comfortable for a long haul. The turbo make it easy to merge onto the highway and the gas mileage is good. If you need a traveling office, this is the perfect car. It's a car or truck when you need it.

Great, fun car!

I've gotten LOTS of compliments on my PT's looks, but the car gets high marks for utility and drivability too. It's really fun to drive...engine is smooooth, and the 150 horsepower is PLENTY for me. I have no problem cruising on the freeway at 70 mph.

What I like most about this vehicle is that it's setup is perfect for a sales professional like me who is driving from appointment to appointment all day long. I arrive refreshed and when I need to use it as an office, I have the passinger seat that folds down as a desk plus the shelf at the rear door as well when I have to work outside. Also, it has the pep of a 6 cylinder because of the turbo, but the gas mileage of a 4 cylinder. The styling is refreshing and doesn't look like any other vehicle on the road.

The only thing I have found wrong with the GT model is the front end gets out of alignment real easily. I've asked the dealer and the alignment people what is wrong and they just say that "you must be hitting some railroad tracks or holes in the road" which, obviously, exist on almost ALL roads. I purchased a lifetime front end alignment package for $125.00 which should take care of the cost from now on. I still would recommend the GT model.

I have been interested in the PTs since they first came out but felt that the visibility would not be good. When we finally were in need of a new car, we decided to give them a look since they were in our price range. We are very happy with our new purchase and thoroughly enjoy it, whether it be just around town or out on the road. There is plenty of room and the versatility is unbelievable!!

Fast, versatile little car. Great for city driving, no worries merging into highway traffic with this car. The turbo is fast and quick to respond. The leather seats are comfy and sit high in the vehicle for good road visibility. The car accomodates tall people very well, both in front and back seats, in fact the back seat has tons of leg room. The suspension handles road 'variations' and pot holes well. Tons of storage and cargo space.

I now own two, a 2002 and my new one. Im aware of the recall, and I admire Chrysler for recalling a half million cars with only 9 reported cases of the problem! How many would Ford/GM wait for? anyway, drove to Texas on cruise 75-85 all the way, good ride, good gas, about 21 mpg on hwy. I dont need a turbo, cars plenty responsive. Its a luxury car for a fair price

For a car this size,the way it handles, & comfort, Iam surprised that its cost is so low, but rates with the luxes & even better I treaded in a '99 VW BEETLE, & its the best deal I have ever made. I hardly feel the bumps on the road & when Iam at a stop light, next to someone who likes to blast their radio, I put up my windows, & I do not hear a thing. Thanks to Dick Hannah, I would buy another one from them, if I needed it. Passing other cars on the road, is a breeze. It just seems like you barely touch the gas pedal, & your moving.

I am pleased with this vehicle EXCEPT the gas mileage SUCKS and think that definitely needs to be much better for as small a car as it is. LOVE the hatchback, LOVE the color, LOVE driving it at night as I have poor vision and this car is WONDERFUL! It is overall a great car for an older person as I LOVE the hatchback for groceries, it's easy to park. EVERYBODY loves the interior and the head room that rides in it and are so surprised at all the room INSIDE the Cruiser. Just drive one ~ that made the difference for me.

Only one complain, and want to hear from somebody else with the same problem. the Fuel economy is really bad, not a bit close to the window sticker, 245 miles per tank on highway, isn't that awful??? that is like 16mpg. incredible, I'm planning in take it to the dealer to check on it.

The PT Cruiser is a fun car with a great look inside and out, for an affordable price. I bought the car in the inferno red and the two tone dash and retro looking features inside give it such a classic look. For a smaller car it gives a smoothe ride and the engine has good pick up and go. I test drove the turbo model and really I couldn't tell much of a difference between it and the model I bought but I'm not the type to use the turbo much anyway. But really, it is just a fun car to have, and you can't beat the price for what you get.

I have only had this car 2 months. I love it. It is gorgeous and very peppy. My biggest gripe is the VERY wide turning radius, making it difficult to park. Also, I think the gas mileage could be better. 0-60 is much quicker than I ever thought. It takes some getting used to, to sit so high up in the seats, but the leather seats in this DC3 are very comfortable. I love the hot rod look (low in front) and the chrome trim. Sirius radio is a nice touch too. I guess if I redesigned it, I would want the seats to sit lower, almost like a sports car, but the retro look is what I fell in love with. This car turns heads! Then of course maybe it's me?!

Ever since seeing the first PT Cruisers in 2000, I wanted one. Now, as of June 2003, I have one and I love it! My buying experience was great. I e-mailed the dealership and told the rep what I wanted. They found me an excellent used vehicle with low miles, and added an alarm plus a sunroof. This is the most comfortable car I've ever driven. I love sitting higher and seeing better. I love the convenient interior and dash. I love the hatchback and seats that fold to accommodate large items. This is a well-made auto and so stylish. This is the most fun I've ever had driving!

We made the correct decision.

Only had the car a few months. No problems to report what so ever. GT turbo is awsome. Acceleration is great. Handles like a sports car. Interior controls take awhile to get used to. Gas mileage seems to be around 20 mpg on the highway. High output Turbo requires Premium gas. Gas mileage would be better if lead foot is left at home.

The PT Cruiser drives like a dream. It feels like you are driving and riding in a much more expensive car. There is some road vibration on rough roads but that is the only time the drive and ride are not completely smooth. It drives even smoother than the Sable that I traded in for the PT. As a matter of fact my husband was so jealous of my new PT Cruiser that he went 5 days later and bought him one. Dorothy - Orlando

I've had my little PT from Florida to Maine and up to the mountains of Tennessee a few times... It also came in very handy when 'gutting' my 1928 house, hauling building supplies!! I'm going to buy a convertible in a year or two...love it! :)

I didn't like the PT Cruiser when it first appeared. The Platinum Series changed my mind. The dull black bumper that's standard on most other models is replaced with matching gloss paint. Nice chrome accents, especially the grill. I added the MOPAR Chrome Kit and it looks fantastic. Leather/suede seating surfaces are a nice touch. But the biggest convincer was the Turbo: The 220 HP 4-cylider moves my relatively lightweight PT along very, very nice.

I was interested in the PT Cruiser when it first came out, but decided to wait until the flurry died down a bit. I am glad that I did! Some of the added features make it a very special car. I recently took an extended driving trip, and was pleasantly surprised by the handling, the mileage, and the comfort for the long trip. I am having so much fun driving her, and love the looks I get when I go down the road!

My wife and I have done some fantastic trips in out PT. Crater Lake to the 5 freeway at 7am, I did 40 above the posted speed, 25 above curve speed. My wife never woke up!! We did our "loop" from home thru Big Bear, with her driving. She got so tired of hanging behind other cars that wouldn't use the turnouts that she got it to 105mph to pass! I wish I coulda seen the other driver's faces! One time, we were coming home down 395, the car passes 3- 5 cars (and big rigs) at a time like they were standing still. My wife and I are big people, and this little car fits us well. It has lots of room, a plus for travel, especially with a lot of luggage.

Fun car to drive. Irritating to have all the minor annoyances. Car came with fan belt squeal that took 4 trips to dealer before they figured out how to shim it. Now have a irritating noise in dash; clock does not keep good time; valve cover needs new seal. Car has 5,000 miles. Really enjoy driving it and using it as a mini SUV. Travels interstates at 75+ comfortably.

I don't know what all the fuss is about the non-turbo being sluggish. Our 5-speed manual will lay rubber off the line. Back seat looked like less leg room than our Neon, but once inside, due to the upright position in which one sits, there is actually plenty of legroom. The upright position also allows for great visability out the front of the car. While waiting for our appointment to have the optional clear coating applied, small scratches have shown up indicating a very thin, non-durable coating of paint. I'm writing this for my wife who has never been in love with a car until this one came along.

I bought my PT Crusier in October of this year as a second car. So far I have 3500 miles on it and have been very satisfied with the comfort and the ride. The gas milage is around 21 miles to the gallon in-town, which is the same as my Chevy Venture. I recently drove it on a 750 mile trip and got about 24 MPG. The PT is a fun car to drive, but no speed demon since I have the non-turbo engine. The problem I have had is that the engine died once at a stop light. It started right back up and I haven't had a problem since. The dealer checked it out and couldn't fine anything wrong either.

And back to the store a month later for electronic problem and the window. Total visit to the "doctor", in 5 months: 4!!! And the front window still needs work, but I gave up!!

When I first say the PT Cruiser, I was sceptical. I wasn't sure if it could bring all of my freinds around, and still have everyone in comfort. But when I finally went out and purchased it, I was proven wrong. This car is large on the inside, and has a great sound system. The moonroof that is included is a freat feature, althogh I did put in the extra for automatic and also for the ABS braking disk on the front. I also got the heated leather / suede seats which I really appreciate on all of those colder nights. I would reccommmed this car to anyone who is looking for a stylish, roomy, and still sporty car.

I was conserned about the space as I had a Town and Country van. But I couldn't be happier with my PT. I can get all the "STUFF" in it. My PT drives very well, it is quick and reliable in traffic and on the Highway!! We live in the mountains. I was also concerned about the snow and the power. I couldn't be happier. It handles like a sports car and does the snow (ice is another subject) the hills, and curves very well.

Replacement for a 1973 Merc Capri v6. Had to replace a classic car with a comparable car. Affordability, quality, and performance were all considerations. Fun to drive, rides great, handles good, not exactly fast (180hp), and several blind spots to get used to. Haven't taken it on a long trip yet, but 22-23 mpg combo city/fwy. Mileage could be better. Smaller turbo packs some punch. Wish it was a v6.

I was compelled to buy a new car because we were involved in an accident which totalled our car. For the interim we needed to rent- a little purple PT Cruiser brought a smile to my face.We drove it for two weeks I was so pleased I decided to buy one. Warnock Chrysler's Sherlene Mullins bent over backwards to find a white Woody and we are thrilled with it and the dealership. The car brings smiles to everyone on the road and is a pleasure to drive and own. The purchasing process was hassle-free. Storage capacity amazing, multi-positional shelf good for bad backs.Car height for people with disabilities is exceptional.

I have had no trouble with the mechanics at all and have spoken to many repeat buyers who say the same. I would recommend this car if you are looking for something fun and sporty to drive, But definitely get the TURBO

The PT Cruiser is the most versatile car I've ever owned. The interior can be configured in so many different ways that the car is useful in many situations that a "normal" car is not. I especially like the fact that the front seat can be folded flat and that the rear seats can fold, tumble forward, or be lifted out altogether giving you the sense that you have a small wagon. I also have never been asked so many questions about a car that I've owned. People are always asking me if I like it. They also comment positively on the Inferno Red color and the retro look. The car has a very tight feel. There are absolutely no squeaks or rattles

My wife drives 200 miles average daily as a retail vendor. She is in Supermarket parking lots all day and is asked several times a week how she likes her PT. Women who are trying to convince their husbands/husbands that want to know that it is safe and what's the mileage like (30 mpg consistently) Complete strangers ask to get in the car to check it out. Everyone thinks it's cute. Only glich was a non- starting problem (software we think) that the Dealers service manager helped with over the phone. Get out of the car, lock it up and start over. I think that I would have ordered the mild turbo had it been available when we bought.

The car is great and fun to drive. I love how the seats sit a little higher up than a regular car. It's roomy and very comfortable.

Great car that is very roamy and easy to into and out of. High quality interior and exterior. We have had no problems with the car and its ride is very quite and smooth. Trade this car in on a Honda Civic and there is absolutely no comparison in the ride, quality of materials used in the construction, interior room, and handling the two cars. The PT beats it hands down. However, the Civic does get better gas mileage! Thanks, Courtney between

I love my PT Cruiser - first time I saw a car I just had to have. It is fun to drive and very comfortable. I was concerned about pick up...but it is fine for me. I do mostly city driving...but when I need to merge onto turnpikes, etc., it picks up speed much quicker than my last car (also a 4 cyl). You sit higher than the regular car but not quite as high as a van...and the PT cruiser is much easier to get in and out of. I am short and not physically agile so the vans, etc. are a hassle for me. The PT cruiser is just right for me!

Excellent Ride

I have been keeping an eye on the Crusier, since they brought them out waiting for a higher performance engine. After they brought out the Turbo,my husband and I decided to go try one out. I had my eye on a decked out green on with detail and the chrome wheels. We found out it was not turbo, but we tried both to compare and I do not see that much difference in regular driving. Also, the regular ran smoothier and not as rough as the turbo, I was not impressed. We ended up getting the one I had my eye on all along and I am very happy with it. It is a fun vehicle to drive.

We purchased the Cruiser to accommodate our 2 year old and replace my 10 yr old chrysler lebaron convertible. The Cruiser not only offered a huge list of standard features, but it is infinitely flexible and I have yet to have it fail to perform in any task. We've hauled 8 ft ladders in it, furniture, kids stuff, everything. Seats in , seats tilted up, seats out. Tailgated in it, you name it. I even used the rear deck shelf for changing my daughter's diapers. And it is reminiscent of the 40's ford coupes. My husband and I love antique autos, and this is like my "old and new car rolled into one." I cannot say enough GREAT things about it.

WE bought our PT Cruiser in October of 2000. We have 49000 miles on her. She is a very reliable car. We still get the looks, she is the Teal Metallic that was only available the first year. I was very skeptical about buying a Chrysler product, but driving our Cruiser has changed my mind.

This is the best driving and performing car I have ever owned. It is sooooooooo comfortable. My next car in 2 yrs. will be a limited Edition Turbo. Couldn't afford that this time. If you drive this vehicle, you will be hooked.

I bought it for my wife because she thought it was the cutest car she had ever seen. I was reluctant, but the 7 year warranty helped me decide to buy it. We love to drive it and find it very comfortable. The interior design is great! We are in our 60's and appreciate how easy it is to get in and out and how comfortable the ride is.

This is my second PT and I can't find any negative aspects to report. My 'old' 2002 PT Limited Edition was great in all areas but power, it was just too gutless and had to be floored to get out of everyone's way. Hence the upgrade to my new 2004 Turbo Platinum Series. Stunningly sharp looking, chrome everywhere, luscious leather and suede seats, loaded with all the goodies I'd ever want .. and POWER! Chrysler really stepped up to the plate on this series. Bravo!

i love this car and would have another one.. however, i feel there is always room for improvement- the seats could be more comfortable. it could also be more quiet- i think the engine is kind of loud.

COOL CAR!

We also don't know the annual gas milage because we just bought the car today! I'm very happy with how much room it has in it! The car is roomy and the seats aren't so close to the floor like in a car. It drives nicely and I'm excited that it's a Turbo! The Electric Blue is a great color!

I'm in Love!

The PT Cruiser has always been my favorite, I had a 2002 touring edition and now I have the GT turbo. It has always been fun with both models, very comfortable to drive and good handling. Never let me down!!!

I had admired the PT for quite a while, but I was reluctant to get into a high car payment and I always drove Japanese cars in the past, so I was reluctant to change. I decided to go and test drive a PT thinking that I would either love it or hate it, but at least I would know if I really wanted one enough to take on another car payment. Once I sat down in the drivers seat I was sold. We purchased that very PT the same day! I realize that I was maybe a little bit too spontaneous, but after 9 months of driving the PT, I know that it was a good decision. I have no regrets and now I am trying to convince my Mom to buy one!

a great car

Having driven a '74 VW Bug for 29 years, it's clear not many new auto designs were that tempting to me. In other words, it would take a truly outstanding design to induce me to make a change. That's why I love the PT... it's as if my trusty VW had won the lottery and retired in luxury... but with its same, lovable personality intact. The PT Cruiser is surely, as auto reviewers have noted, the new "American Beetle".

When we got the car, I had no idea how much it REALLY had to offer. I know what the ads said, but when it comes to real life, that's a whole new ballgame. It is a great handling car, and although it's not a speed demon, it can handle itself just fine! My dad has been a Mercedes and Cadillac man and he couldn't believe how well it handled, how solid it was and how much interior room it had.

Not only did I want this car before it was out, first time I saw it in a magazine, I wanted to own it for the rest of my life. This car will be here for a long time because the design and stlyling appeals to both young and old. Not to mention very affordable.

I don't know my cars annual gas mileage cause ive onyl had it for like a month. 6000 is an ESTIMATE. I have a 2004 Electric Blue Turbo Cruiser, and I love it! The exterior is so cool, the interior design is a pratical as my wife's 2004 XE Limited Edition Toyota Sienna, which is the most pratical car in teh world, more than a Honda Oddysey, at least. The seats fold and can be taken out, it drives great, etc.
