"I wanted a "basic" car and this is what I got. Great reliability. In the ten years I have owned this vehicle, I have put less than $16,000 into the car, including purchase price and tires but not gas and oil. An Audi, it ain't, but it does have a bit of charm and I have the $30,000 difference in my pocket."

Pros: "comfortable, reliable, still stylish"

Cons: "Unfortunately, it's old"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"After the general blandness of the 1990s, the PT was an emphatic style statement. It looks even better when compared to the explosion-in-a-protractor-drawer mishmash of wedges and randomly applied pointless curves that dominates in 21st century car-styling. Two years old when purchased, this PT has been a comfortable daily driver for 12 years. Though these cars are not generally reputed to provide above average reliability, the only non-routine things done for this particular vehicle were replacement of a leaking radiator and of a perforated power steering fluid line."

"This is our second PT Cruiser. As this 2008 only has 49600 miles on it, it has been completely dependable and fun to drive. Granted it is small inside and you get the "small car ride" and it gets terrible gas mileage for a small 2.4L engine, probably because Chrysler paired it with a 4 speed transmission. After 8-1/2 years, we are now ready to trade it for a larger crossover."

"This car is not the most comfortable to ride in, drive and not very good gas milage... averages 17 mpg. Too many repairs of under $200.00 nickle and dimes you !!! I would never buy another one."
