I've got 106K miles now and haven't had any problems with the car. There's a slight clunking from the rear occasionally under hard cornering just recently started. I understand it's worn suspension bushings on the rear, so I'll be replacing those soon. At 40K I installed aftermarket springs and shocks to improve the handling. A bit stiffer ride, but well worth it. I also installed a Borla aftermarket exhaust and AirRaid intake. It has a nice growl, and power is OK with the 5 speed manual. I would not like this car with an automatic. Just replaced timing belt- it's more expensive than most- you have to disconnect A/C hoses and raise the engine up few inches.
Lots of looks. The car is low and I've added a Xenon body kit and aftermarket wheels which looks great. I get many complements on the car wherever I go. Careful driving with the 5 speed returns an average of over 27mpg. I can haul lots of stuff- drums, kids, lumber, lawnmower have all gone for a ride.
More power (getting the turbo solves this problem). Factory suspension could be stiffer. Don't mess with the styling- it's still about the best looking car on the road.
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.
Heated leather seats. It looks good
More power, better mileage, and better reliabilty.
My girlfriend purchased this vehicle three years ago. First year was alright. Nothing major happend except for the very poor gas mileage, and there is no performance at all. Second year brakes and suspension went out. Had to replaced the front and rear brakes and the vehicle only had 50,000 miles on it. Also at the same time the struts go out. Third year major problems, transmission will not shift gears. Had to get it towed and no one knows what to fix. Never again.
I loved the PT from the moment I saw it and bought one despite concerns about buying a Chrysler. Overall, I like the car but its reliability isn't what I want. The 1st 2 years were great, but then one little thing after another started going wrong.First the headlights wouldn't turn off-had to get the car jump started and take it in to the shop. Then the horn wouldn't work. Then it started overheating-had to get the car towed in 2 times for that. Then the brake lights wouldn't work-got them fixed 3 separate times. Replaced battery several times, replaced brakes. If it weren't for these annoyances I would never buy another type of car-I absolutely love the ride, the look, the comfort,the room.
Love the look most of all. That's the main reason for buying one. Also love the roominess-esp. the front seat that folds down. Car holds a full size Christmas tree inside. Nice size for city driving & parking. Overall a fun car & so cute everyone wants to have a ride.
I wish Chrysler were more reliable. If the car held up better I'd never buy another one!
