The driving is not very smooth but it never brook down it is very solid roomy and turn heads every time. I love my car, thank you Cruisler.
Reliable & Practible
Looking online, you'd think PTs were horrible. They're not. I'm a Service Writer at Chrysler. I've owned 3 of them, all great cars! If you're looking to race, it's not the car you want, but if you're looking for Comfort on a long or short trip, plenty or room for stuff, (I carry my drumset in mine), practically and ease of use, this is your car. Visibity is great, braking is good, the steering is controlled, competent, and predictable. This is Not a rally car. We've taken both our PTs, (One is a turbo) up the steep and windy road to Lake Tahoe. Stay within it's limits and you'll love it. I can push it more than you'd imagine. The car will tell you when to cool it. It has enough power, even in reserve to make the journey very enjoyable. The Turbo does deliver more power, but really, both turbo and non turbo are great choices. I get 28 MPG on a long highway trip. It's not great, but for the sake of my comfort, (Bad back) I'm happy with it. City is about 23. Again, not great, but over train tracks and pot holes, it remains stable without beating you up, so I'll take it! We don't see these on our service drive often. They are dependable, BUT, You Must do Your Services On Time. Oil, transmission, coolant, brake fluids will get you well over 100,000 miles. Take care of it, it'll take care of you. Oil leaks, door rattles, are the most common complaints, but the simplicity of the design makes those easy to fix. Ninety nine times out of 100, the people with all of the problems and breakdowns have not taken care of the car OK, to sum up. This is not a race car, but it has enough power to get you in to or out of trouble. Service It! I love my PTs. They're practical comfortable reliable. A good first car for your kids as well as an everyday driver!
Good car for the price, you get what you pay for.
Pt Cruisers are known to have problems just like any other Chrysler product. But my Pt Crusier has over 197,000 miles and gets me to point A to B. It is a cheap little car, so I can’t hate that it has small occasional problems. It is currently the first car I have owned and for being as old and considering the amount of miles it has been good to me.
