Pros: "Fun to drive"

Cons: "Ignition's a little hinky- front bumper too low"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"I didn't think I'd like this car but I do. My first impression of the retro-style was not favorable. The seat height is comfortable and driving feels safe and solid. There's ample room in the back when the seats are folded down-I always keep 'em that way:great for spontaneously loading a 'curb find' or for moving. Gas mileage is decent. The ignition is a bit hinky and the key sticks sometimes when I try remove it. The front bumper on the PT Cruiser is way too low and fragile! Even with care, it does not fair well in steep driveway inclines or in the Ohio snow."

Pros: "Power, comfort and convenience."

Cons: "Turning radius."

"If this model (with turbo) were still manufactured, I'd buy a new one. It's just so flexible, only car I've seen with ability to flip the front passenger seat down to easily carry an 8-ft ladder. With the turbo it has power of a six- cylinder. Only negative is high turning radius."

Pros: "Steers well, great seating position"

Cons: "engine mounts break easily"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"We got our PT two years ago, used. It has given us so many issues. This car is known to have it's engine mounts break. The primary engine mount is made of CAST IRON! So, if it breaks, it can't be welded back. We had to replace the entire engine. We took this car in every three months for an oil change (like you are supposed to), and we started getting into the habit of bringing a few hundred dollars everytime. Something else was always wrong. The mechanic seemed to always be saying "this model is known for this issue". Whenever we did the safety and emission checks, the brakes always needed to be tightened, and at least one of the three engine mounts needed to be fixed. I will never buy a PT again, in fact, I am staying away from Chrysler. I tell everyone I meet not to buy them. Ever."
