Still like the car.

Vehicle2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited Edition 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewBought the car used in 2005 at about 56,000 miles. Have thoroughly enjoyed the car. Haven't had many problems, but when I did, I was appalled at the repair price, and the unusual failing of parts that normally don't fail. In 2006 the transmission failed. Cost $3,250 for a rebuilt one. Since then, the sunroof has jumped the track and screwed up the linkage. No 'repair parts' are available from Chrysler. Cost $1,200 for a new one. Then the starter when out. Cost $500 to fix. It's time now for the timing belt replacement (95K miles)& dealer quoted about $1000 to replace it (includes new water pump). Transmission is acting up again but may be low fluid problem. I just topped it up & so far ok.
Best FeaturesThe 'woodie' package & this car besides being a 'Limited' has about every option Chrysler offered including the $600 optionl performance brake pkg which then includes 'traction control' & 'antilock brakes'. At 95K, i'm still on the original brakes.
Worst FeaturesThe 'performance brake' package should be standard equipment. I've owned Porsches, Jaguar and Mercedes. The brakes on the Cruiser equal all of them. I put on a set of Michelin's best tires which are guaranteed not to wear out for 90,000 miles & replaced the orig battery with Chrysler's best, 7 yr.
