Pros: "reliable, sit up higher, economical, unique!"

Cons: "It's a cruiser, not a bruiser"

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

"Why did they stop making them? They don't look like every other vehicle on the road - they're unique. And maintenance has been a breeze; no surprises. A reliable vehicle that's fun to drive!"

"I bought this brand new. I have had to replace the controller arms 7 times and the tie rods 6 times (there were other parts in that area that had to be replaced more than once but cant remember their names). I am a very careful driver and with only 126,000 on the car that is ridiculous. I had problems from the start and I could not get the dealership (which is out of business) or Chrysler to do anything about it. After four years of having the car the electrical started failing. Lost car alarm only two windows would open. Then the interior lights started failing and the speakers. I have had to replace the radiator and a few other major parts. Heated seats failed after five years."

Pros: "comfortable, roomy, dependable"

Cons: "under-powered, poor gas mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"The roomy PT Cruiser is terrific for comfort. Road trips over a thousand miles are no problem in this sturdy car. Back doors open wide for ease of access, even for large dogs! Under-powered for the hills of PA, especially with 4 adults. Power OK for flatter terrain or fewer people. Gas mileage is disappointing, about 18/23."

Pros: "Fun to drive, love its versatility."

Cons: "Won't win many races."

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

"An absolutely fun car to drive and very comfortable on road trips. Very good gas mileage for a vehicle that can be used for everything including moving large or long items with the rear seats down or removed. Always liked the retro styling and learned to love the minimal maintenance on a car with no real problems mechanically. After ten years this car still gets second looks and people are always saying, "when you are ready to sell let me know." My neighbor summed it up best when he said the day I sell it, is the day I will regret not having it to enjoy anymore. I knew it wasn't a muscle car when I bought it, and the turning radius falls short of superb...small negatives in the scheme of a wonderfully built automobile."
