PT Cruiser - BEST cars I have ever owned
May 1, 2017
This was the best car.
Fun to drive! Handled well! Tight turning radius.
Very comfortable, seated 4 adults with every seat as comfortable as the drivers seat,
plenty of head and leg room for everyone.
The cargo area and fold down seats could handle so much - including a twin mattress
on one trip and 9 large plants from the nursery on another trip.
Power outlets in the back and an adjustable tray in the back made
it great for traveling and camping.
I worked in a bldg. with 4 real estate companies - it looked like a PT Cruiser
dealer parking lot - at least half of the agents drove PT cruisers - for the very
comfort features I mentioned above.
When my Mom needed a wheelchair - the seat height was perfect for
transferring her in and out of the car.
I know Chrysler didn't want to spend money on a redesign so
they discontinued with this 2010 model. .
All they needed to do was trick it out with some LED head and taillights,
and put a TURBO in every model (without turbo, the power was pretty weak).
BRING IT BACK
I have had 2005 and 2010, if I had known 2010 would be the last year, I would have bought another
one to store away until my 1st 2010 model was ready to retire.
Chrysler - you didn't advertise or promote this car at all in the last few model years you made it -
big mistake - it is great for senior citizens and college seniors and everyone in between. For real
estate agents it was their second choice (after a Mercedes)... so really their FIRST choice car unless
they were selling multi million $ mansions.
Both of my PTs went everywhere. Long road trips, the beach, camping (drove across fields, no problem)
and all over the city, easy to park, tight turning radius.
Seriously Chrylser - who made this dumb decision?
Trick it out a bit and bring it back!
