I purchased my 2004 PT Cruiser GT a year ago after an auto accident had totaled my 2001 Ford Escort (no great loss).
I had driven one previously as a rental in Florida and fell in love with it.
When I bought it a year ago, it was fully loaded, all chrome, leather interior, great sound system, automatic seats, sun roof, spoiler, etc.
It was a one owner vehicle and had around 55,000 miles on it; I paid about $6,000 for it.

Wife owns one of these, so I get a chance to drive occasionally.
Not overly impressed with this car, but don't hate it.
Acceleration is average, but the engine seems under-powered for the weight of the vehicle. The turbo version is better.
Wife's car is auto-perhaps the 5 speed is better suited for the engine.
Working on vehicle is difficult for many tasks given that engine is tightly wedged in compartment-changing timing belt and water pump is a real nightmare-I let the dealer do that job :)
Styling is ok-wife likes it better than I do.
That being said, it is pretty roomy on the inside-can easily fit 5 adults and cargo.
Fuel economy suffers due to weight of vehicle.
