Bought in 12/2001. Now has 98K. Replaced suspension & exhaust w/better quality aftermarket. Car has no lean into curves like other PT's. Replaced 16x6 wheels w/17x7. Replaced air cleaner w/cold air box for more power & better sound. Sunroof glass shattered, brake caliper bent, bad LED light but no other probs. Always synthetic oil. Never a prob w/inspection. Disabled & it fits my needs perfectly. Cargo area will gobble up anything you want to put in it. Fits 4 tall adults w/no complaints. Can't really fit 5 because of load limit not because there's not enough space. 3 recalls all important. One of the best designed cars I've ever seen. Daimler cheapened subsequent years so avoid them.
Everything except weak engine & dated transmission. Most were babied so relatively easy to find a good used one. So many of them that used parts are readily available. Owners' clubs are still around and active so you can keep up on probs & fixes.
Can't make any except aftermarket modifications at owner's cost noted above. Chrysler's not making PTs anymore and won't be updating it. They're letting a good car die.
