I bought a used 2005 chrysler pt cruiser a few years ago.

I bought a used 2005 chrysler pt cruiser a few years ago. My wife found in in Trenton , NJ. It was a one owner with just over 30,000 miles on it. We only drove it a few blocks, tried the convertible top and was sold on it. I had a small accident a few years ago but it was fixed fantastic like new. I love my car everything works like new and always getting some compliants Inferno Red Black Top Will never sell it!

The check engine read multiple misfires. They hid things so ypu may or not notice they say they clean them out and they dont. And dont let them tell you i did not buy a car or im a competitor. I bought 2 vehicles from them and will come back with picture to show you all DO NOT GO THERE AND BUY A CAR YOU WILL END UP WITH THE HASSEL OF EVERYTHING GOING TO CRAP WITHIN A DAY OR TWO.

Love my New to Me GT Turbo

I just bought a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser GT Turbo from a used car dealership in Virginia Beach to replace my 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser (base model) that I had wrecked. I love the PT Cruiser's retro styling and roominess--outwardly, this car looks just like my old car, though it has a bit more bling (chrome detailing). Inside, it's got all the bells and whistles--leather seating, sunroof, heated seats, and a sound system that takes 6 CDs. (Yes, I still listen to my music that way!) Under the hood, I also appreciate the turbo engine, which has LOTS more pickup than my old base model PT. So far, it's been very reliable, though I have only had it for 10 days.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!!!

My grandfather used to own a 2005 PT Cruiser convertible. He would take me around in it. He hated it and I hated it. The first thing is that the key actually broke while in the ignition. We had to get the steering wheel replaced which cost a lot of money. Then, the drop top kept getting stuck on the metal frame, which led to the motor overheating and breaking. Then, the thing that made us get rid of the car: THE BRAKE PEDAL BROKE. The bottom of the pedal snapped off the arm. I am warning you: NEVER BUY THIS CAR!!

Head turner, fun to drive, will always remember it

We had a mid life crisis and needed a convertible. We really wanted to be sporty, and buy something smaller, but we’re old. This really caught our eye. It was always fun to drive especially on a road trip. You can get a surprising amount in the trunk. We loved it being able to seat 4. The bad part, when it needed repair, it was expensive. But otherwise, we really enjoyed owning this and sometimes miss it. We had a lot of fun and don’t regret buying. Be very careful parking because the front ground effects will rip off easily if you park somewhere with a too tall parking beam. That happened 3 times. If we found another one with low mileage, we might consider it.

Very reliable stylish car

We purchased this car new when the convertible was first released. It is fun to drive, especially with the top down. We have had only 2 issues with it over the years, an ac line and the intake manifold upper and lower gasket needed replacing. That was it. Oil changes were always done using full synthetic oil and only premium unleaded gas was used. I love the color scheme of the interior.

A Very Nice Fun Car

It is not a hot rod, but is quite peppy and fun to drive. Very good car, that has required little other then routine maintenance. Its looks are subjective, some like it some dont. I think it has a nice retro look to it, plus it is dependable. Great little car to drive for pleasure.
