2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bought car via "clunkers program" + Chrysler rebate incentive. We were told that in order to participate we had to pay full sticker price, $21,400 although the same car sells for $19,060 here. I have had the vehicle less than two months. Its seating is deceiving. It is actually rather difficult to get into and out of if you are big and tall (6'3" 250). The seats are very short and make for uncomfortable long distance driving. I would like to trade in on a used truck; but - value dropped $9,000.00 in less than two months. Kelly Blue Book and N.A.D.A. rate the value used at $10,000 to $12,500. I feel that I was ripped off for that $8,000.00 ($450+$350.00)I got for my 'clunker'.

2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Mine is an AUTOMATIC, not manual. This site did not have that as a choice for the LX base model. The base model had all the options I needed. I was not expecting to buy a PT, originally I was looking for a small pickup with crew cab. But truck prices were too high so eventually I looked at and drove the PT. I liked it. Good visablity, comfortable seats, roomy interior, lots of cargo space, seems to be well made. Suspension is firm but not harsh, cabin is pretty darn quiet, might even be quieter then my Crown Vic. It has the electronic mileage readout and in town looks to run around 19 mpg and in mixed commuting type driving about 23 mpg. Engine power is adequate.


Favorite Features

I got the inferno red. One thing I like about the PT is that it doesn't look like every other small car nor does it look like a jelly bean. It's very comfortable and pleasent to drive. All the controls are within easy reach, std seats have good lower back support, interior is very versitile.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage would be nice but that's not going to happen since it's probably in its last year of production. One the plus side, since it's been in production so long one hopes that all the bugs have been worked out by now.

2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

I have the dream cruiser. I roll up my front and rear windows on the dash board. Unusual, but you get used to it. When I need the power I speed around other cars and leave them in the dust. I let it hang out around the curves. It is fun to drive. Mileage is not too good, but then what do you expect from a car with a turbo. It give me great performance. If you are looking for mileage conseder something else.


Favorite Features

Turbo, fun to drive, looks good. Plenty of cargo space.


Suggested Improvements

The front end is a little low and should be raised a little. Has not given me a problem because I have the model with 17 inch wheels. A more gas efficent engine would be nice.
