2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser

The potent turbocharged engine has been retired, as has the manual transmission. Chrysler has simplified the lineup to a single vehicle, now called the PT Cruiser Classic, which has a single engine and transmission choice and only a handful of options.

About Chrysler PT Cruiser

People who drive convertibles often like their cars to stand out, a fact most manufacturers and designers take into account. If unmistakable styling is the hallmark of a great convertible, then the 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible should win top honors. Based on the popular PT Cruiser Wagon, the convertible sheds its top (as well as its two rear doors and flip-up hatch) to create an open-air cockpit large enough to accommodate four adults. When outfitted with the optional turbocharged engine the PT Cruiser Convertible can be quite the barnburner and, with its top in place, the PT takes on the look of a nifty chop-top '40s cruiser.

"When it first came out I wanted it badly, I am glad I waited to purchase this car, The first thing they had to replace was the Smog stuff that was under warranty, Then 3 months later I had to replace Air Conditioning metal hoses - A really bad design. cost over $600 to fix It still to this day keeps acting up. 2 years from purchasing and less than 100,000 miles the Transmission went out that was a $3600 charge and on top of that the Motor mounts broke $400 and since then I have replace a Cam sensor $100, Ignition sensor $100, Water pump Timing Belt $600.00, Air fan $150.00, Motor Fan assembly $650.00 - Totaling over $6200.00 in 4 years - I purchased for $5500 + traded my 1998 Dodge Caravan for it. Nice looking Car.. But A major LEMON when I bought it!!! They should use the body and put on a Toyota Prius drive train. I still own this car only because I have to much into it. and at least I know it's gonna work for a while. It should last me at least 100,000 mile.. The Transmission is under warranty."

"Great little car. Performance and economy are great for its size and class. Easy to get in and out of, even for adults in the rear seating area. Needed only maintance items, tires, brakes, ect..."

"I bought this car as I needed a vehicle that could carry a lot but I didn't want a mini van or even larger vehicle. This really, really did the job. It surprised me tremendously on a regular basis as to what it could swallow. From days and days worth of computer parts (I used to do onsite repairs of computer/printers) to 6 foot plus rear seat passengers. My wife had three kids from a previous marriage. When given the choice between a Ford Taurus and the lil' PT Cruiser for a long trip, they chose Cruiser emphatically and without hesitation. (Two of her boys are OVER 6 foot!) We've lugged 11 foot Christmas trees on top, trees for our yard inside, concrete bags, yard and garden supplies, pets... you name it. The seating can be configured in multiple formats or even removed entirely. The front passenger seat fold flat and you can place a laptop on the back of the seat. If you drive conservatively you can see 30 MPG as I did in freeway driving when I had a long commute from home to work. I had one transmission repair at the very beginning covered under warranty but other than that the car has never left us stranded until after we had passed 100K. Terrific car, inside and out!!"
