2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Bought in 2009 with 43K miles. Within 3 years had to replace the entire back end of car - sometimes certain pieces TWICE! Get only 18 to 19 mpg in the city; maximum I've seen is only 23 mpg and that was only once. Now it seems like I have to replace things in the front. This car is not driven like a maniac; I drive it very safely. Bad vision out of the right window; you can't see cars on the right side. Costs about $50.00 to fill a tank - every week. Fits a lot of stuff inside and is extremely attractive but very expensive on mechanical problems and for gas. Fabric seats are starting to rip (no, I have no pets or children in the car)
Nice interior; very easy to use. Beautiful outside, too.
They could have made so many more options available; moon roof or sun roof, special "vintage" looking back window, hood ornament, etc. Something is seriously wrong with the front and back end of the car with the suspension.
I got this car used in a very good shape with a manual. After a new clutch and a full tune-up i drove this car from Nyc to Miami and back. The car was extremely comfortable, able to cruise at 90-100mph with no drama, good handling and 30mpg. Driving in stop and go traffic and getting 20 mpg is not fun but hear compliments from old people. The car never had a mechanical issue.
2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
The second owner which we were looking for a vehicle that is good on gas, is reliable, room, and
with a look for the designers.
Never had a only have had Jeep Wranglers with Chrysler and
being a car and not a car person it is cool to drive at night how it lights up.
The only problem is
the AUX set broke when hooked into a I-PHONE but most factory stereo are junk any way.
Very Happy with this car and am going to set up for company used vehicle runner/ designer cars.
COST OF OUT COME EVALUATION!
Night time Classic Display, hatch back for even two large dogs with able room and it cost on fuel
is much more reasonable than a large SUV and Truck for travel.
This GT wagon rides and handles exceptionally well, and accelerates briskly once you get the turbo to wake up.
The riding position is surprisingly high, but I got used to it fairly quickly. I posted this because I didn't see anone else with the turbo and a stick.
My mpg is a lot better than I've read here (22-23 combined) on 89 octane.
With these cars out of production, the resale value is sinking rapidly, which is a good thing for possible buyers.
Mine had 56k miles when I got it and it is very tight and rattle-free.
Solid feel, good handling, crisp shifting.
Roomy for four passengers.
Lots of storage space.
Still looks good after many years in production.
Out of production so it's too late, but something might have been done about the wide turning radius.
Sound system is OK but not as good as I expected.
Mileage should be better than it is.
I am in love with this Car!!! It is extremely comfortable and feels very safe and secure. The build and design seems to be very sturdy. It rides smooth, and very spacious.
I haven't had any problems with it so far. I have seen a few reviews about mileage complaints but so far its doing great on gas. It's stylish, comfortable, and most importantly affordable for me. I am most definitely happy about this decision.
I love the fact that the back seats can fold and even be moved if necessary.
I really have any other than I don't have a cruise control option. Then again, i just got the car so, I may need to rad the manual.
