2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Edition 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Roomy interior and adequate cargo room

Suggested Improvements

More hp-engine is underpowered for a relatively heavy car. More room in engine bay-it's really cramped in there. Engineers maximized interior room, but forgot to consult with mechanics/service techs who actually have to make repairs on this car.
