2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited Edition 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car has no go, and uses more gas then my truck. Just traded in with 88,000 miles on it and was lucky it made it. Once the car hit 80,000 miles everything fell apart. Sensors kept going out every 2000 miles. Something with a transmission sensor went out and had to get the car towed. Save the trouble and buy something else.


Favorite Features

Heated leather seats. It looks good


Suggested Improvements

More power, better mileage, and better reliabilty.

Review

i bought my pt used and low mileage it went back once to dealership for some squeaking noise turned out it wasn't sitting right on the frame. i have had no problems other then regular mait. one month ago some noised started and it was the bushings bearings so 1300$ dollars spent on repairing. a week later rad motor blew causing the rad to blow then transmission, 3 days after this fuel pump went. it is now in the shop for timeing belt, water pump and other repairs. total of all repairs 7500$ i really wish i had of traded. now i will have this car forever good thing i do like the look and the drive of it. i'm just glad they took it off the line no more pts. yahoo


Suggested Improvements

2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited Edition 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Very fun and reliable car with excellent features and comfort. This car is fully-loaded and has been very reliable with cost of ownership being quite low. Performance is noticeably impacted by running the air conditioning.


Favorite Features

Front seat warmers, moon roof, and the great versatility of the cargo area. Seats 4 large people very comfortably.


Suggested Improvements

More powerful engine (I understand this has been done in the newer Turbo configurations) and improved gas mileage.

Review

We go a used PT Cruiser for a steal and have not had any major problems with it. We really enjoy driving it. It is like any other car you have to take care of it. It has all sorts of bells and whistles power everything and a moon roof. Its comfortable and fun and me and my wife both like it.


Favorite Features

I like the unusual retro design and all the extra features.


Suggested Improvements

Its really had to do any work on there is not enough room in the engine compartment.
