About Chrysler PT Cruiser

The 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Classic continues as one of the most stylish compact wagons on the market. While some may argue its retro look has grown tiresome, sales remain strong enough to justify the car's continued production, as does the demand for aftermarket parts and accessories. Beyond its flamboyant "look at me" exterior, the PT Cruiser provides a roomy and highly flexible interior as adept at hauling kids and cargo as it is serving tailgate, or, rather, liftgate-party duty. Like many cars in this segment, Chrysler offers PT buyers a simple set up consisting of one engine and transmission choice bundled together in a nicely equipped package that starts around $19,000.

"This car is comfortable to drive, although it's not very fast, and it's easy to get in and out of. That makes it very useful for my purposes. I've driven it on long distances and it's a fun ride."

Pros: "styling"

Cons: "pretty much every thing else"

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

"At somewhere around 100k miles, the car just starts falling apart. I should have realized that when a $1600 timing belt replacement is recommended before 100k miles. That includes a boat load of labor and replacement of motor mounts which are already expected to break (mine did). I also have a non functioning A/C and a bad drive axle. My tail lights also fill up with water and burn a bulb every 2 months. I actually did buy this from a little old lady that only drove it to church and the store. She is my mom. Didn't matter. The car is junk after 100k unless you just love it and want to pump a bunch of money into it to keep looking cool, i would stay away."

"car handles cornering very well for its height. Rear seats remove easily and install the same. Has not needed any problems other than brake lining and tire replacement due to normal wear."
