Worst mistake I ever made, don't buy one!

2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I babied my PT Cruiser, but once it hit 90k miles it all went down hill. Routine service like starter, alternator, brakes is all to be expected but it didn't seem to matter how much I put into it mechanically, every few months a new problem would arise. At 120k it started pouring oil out, had a blown head gasket. Kelley Blue Book value was less than an engine rebuild, so I cut my losses and donated it as is. If your thinking of getting one, don't. I wouldn't take one for free!
Only good thing was having a 4 cylinder for great mpg. They feel stiff to drive, no room for car seats or groceries. Both back door locks broke, I had one door stuck shut and the other didn't want to stay closed. Base model felt like a car from the 80's, no options at all. You live and you learn, just so happy its gone!
