You would think, for such a compact looking car, that the PT Cruiser would get decent gas mileage. Nope, not at all. This car blows through gas at an incredible rate, even when doing all highway driving. It's hard to justify driving such a small car when you spend so much on gas. The seating is decent on a comfort level, although the head rests seem to be at a slightly bizarre angle. There is plenty of trunk space when you lay down the back seat. If you need to transport strange things like corn stalks, like I did, you won't be disappointed. The interior holds up well. I would recommend cleaning it on a regular basis because it seems to attract dirt like crazy. I haven't had any engine issues. As long as you keep up on the back maintenance, you'll be fine. The car has a lot of pick-up-... (more)
Story
Needed to pick up corn stalks and hay bales to decorate our front yard for Halloween. I packed this car to the gills and you should have seen the weird looks I received when driving home!
Pros
Get up and go No major maintenance required
Cons
Bad gas mileage Gets dirty easily

The PT Cruiser has always had a very distinctive style. It is still a head turning car and fun to drive. I very much love the styling, inside and out. When I needed a new car, however, I was hesitant about it at first due to bad luck friends and family members have had with Chrysler and Dodge cars in the past. When I found this car, it was ten years old but looked nearly brand new. Certainly, it was well cared for and loved by its previous owners. I took it for a drive and found that it had the characteristic random noise that I associated with Chrysler/Dodge vehicles, and one rear window didn't open or close. But, it charmed me, and now it's mine.
Story
I have a friend who has no car of her own, and I have given her rides outside of our city to visit her brother and other friends. The drive in the cool of the day along twisting country roads past stands of forested land and farmer's yards complete with cattle, sheep and horses is both exhilarating and somehow relaxing at the same time. The cool dusk air and driving surefooted around the curve... (more)
Pros
The car has no rust after ten years on the road. The interior was spotless and beautifully designed. I am a large, tall person, and I do not feel cramped. It runs well, and after a change of steering rod bushings, it handles well. (This car has 114,000 miles on it.) The stereo is good, but like most OEM stereos, it is not fantastic. It does have a large range of equalizing to enhance the sound to my taste.
Cons
The car is noisy. The brakes squeak, even after taking it to a garage to have it fixed. They found nothing wrong with the brakes/suspension, and this is a garage I trust from long-time association. The window problem expanded to the driver's side; they are ghosty, and this is apparently a known problem with this car. The windows go down, and sometimes, randomly, don't want to go back up. So far, after leaving it sit for anywhere from a few seconds to an hour or so, they eventually go back up. I suspect it needs a new window switch, which can be found online for about $50. The gas mileage i... (more)
