2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Edition 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Had only minor initial problems. Fixed
at no cost and quickly during first
year. Clutch fluid leak, was still able
to carefully drive to shop. Engine
control module fault which actually
caused no problem driving just kept
idiot light on until module was
replaced. Otherwise very good handling
and power with typical mileage around
town at or better than 25 mpg and
highway miles 29-32 depending on speed.
Normally as i use this vehicle for work
loaded down. I changed my original
tires at 63000 miles no bare spots just
needed a little better tread depth in
snow otherwise could have easily gotten
another 5000 on tread left if winter
was gone.


Best Features

Very easy to ride long trips in comfortable stable ride very sure footed in lots of snow.


Worst Features

GPS system built in would have been nice toy.

2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited Edition 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I'm on my third year with this car,
and it's the best I've ever owned.
It's not only fun to drive, it's a
great hauler for my dogs, their
crates, etc. It's amazing to have a
smaller car - which I like - with big-
car room. (I know it's classified as a
truck, but it sure doesn't ride truck-
like!)

Now, I'd keep this car forever if they
hadn't come out with that incredible-
looking convertible. Will I get one?
We'll see.


Best Features

Interior space, good pick-up and mileage (but I have the five-speed. I've heard it's slower with the auto.)


Worst Features

A bigger sunroof, like some of the newer cars are coming out with - the new Caddy SUV, the new Maxima, etc.

about this vehicle.

Interior design is awesome! Nice heated seats and lots of storage space, too.

Would rather have window controls on the door vs the instrument panel.
