2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser continues as one of the most stylish and fun-to-own compact
wagons on the market. While some may argue its retro look has grown tiresome, sales remain strong, 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. Unlike most cars in this segment, Chrysler offers PT buyers a choice of fuel-efficient engines, one of which is turbocharged. Best of all, the PT Cruiser's price tag starts around $15,000, making it a vehicle just about anyone can afford.
The PT's trim levels have been reduced to one well-equipped version with a long options list. New standard features include front-seat side-impact airbags, a power driver's seat with manual lumbar support and a tire-pressure monitoring system.
