Where to begin...? Bought My 2001 PT Cruiser Limited Edition (bright silver metallic) used in 2004 with 26,000 miles on the odometer. Fully loaded with all Limited level equipment (leather, full power, tilt, cruise, AC, moonroof, alloys and more!), the heated front seats, auto trans, "ultimate" stereo and optional painted alloy wheels. Have made MANY mods over the years - adding performace options (cold air/cone filter, higher performance wheels & tires and more) - adding visual "styling" aids (woodie kit, chrome trim, portholes, LEDs and strobes).... One of the great things about the PT Cruiser is the built in community of owners and enthusiasts.
Performance is good - a bit slow at times - and the gas mileage isn't great - especially for a small car. But at over 3200 pounds (yes, the weight of a mini-van), what can you expect.
No trouble with the car - AT ALL - and now have over 86K miles! Only maintenance work done! That's over 60K miles of TROUBLE FREE driving!!!
Brakes tend to wear quickly - again, 3200 lbs of car - but not horribly. A bit slow off the line - high-rev powerband and heavy weight - make the performance only mediocre. But the looks we get!!!
OH, and you can personalize the car to almost no end - chrome, wood, flames, stripes, wheels, trim - you name it! Retro to modern sportster... GO FOR IT!
PS - we've got 3 in the family - 2 01 PTs and an 02 PT - all are great!!!
