Review of the 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser

  • A practical wagon with some Hollywood style, the PT Cruiser can also be fun to drive, especially in turbo form.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Distinctive styling inside and out, spacious cabin with multiconfigurable rear seats, smooth ride, spirited acceleration on turbo models, reasonable pricing.

  • Cons

    Acceleration can be sluggish with base engine, awkward seating position for shorter drivers, unimpressive fuel economy.

Troublesome pt!

Vehicle: 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Edition 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

We purchased our 2004 PT (new) in Feb 2005. We are currently at 64K miles & are not happy campers. We have had 4 service calls for engine jerking when starting the car. Dealership did a tune up and changed spark plugs the first time. Back to the dealership 21 days later (same problem), changed the spark plug wires (warranty). Back again 45 days later because of defect with the new spark plug wires (warranty). Now we are back again, but we are out of warranty. We had to replace the tires at 30K miles. We were told (by the Goodyear location) that the back end is out of alignment (from the factory) and cannot be fixed. We have 2 Hyundais with +160K and have never had service issues!

I just bought the car a few weeks ago with 40,000 miles. Thank god I bought an extended warranty because it is already going to the shop. My wife noticed a hesitation in the acceleration while driving down the highway, the new brakes make a lot of noise, and the engine makes a squealing noise at cold start-up until engine is warm. I hope that this isn't the beginning of endless problems.




Simply the best!

My experience with this vehicle has been fabulous, clean, fun to drive and fuel efficient. Easy to handle, plenty of room and stylish even for a Diva!

love my car but when car idles and air isn't on it sounds like its going to cut out. Also after 16,000 miles had to do brake job. But I really like the look.




First new car

Vehicle: 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Edition 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

I had this car only 3 days before it had to go to the shop. Over a six month period it was in the shop 7 times for check engine light. The first 6 months I owned it I had to have a rental car a total of 2 weeks. These cars are very poorly built (in Mexico). Also, there is a lot of road noise. The stereo is barely audible on the highway. I will never buy another Chrysler.
