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


Wanted one the minute I saw it! The day I bought it,master brake cylinder out in busy traffic, didn't get hit!Told by my son-in-law NOT to buy one because of the hood design,little space available to work in.Didn't listen! First:1/2 shaft replaced,front brakes next,Nov.08.Then it began over- heating,June 2009,tried everything possible to fix.Ok now,don't know WHY OR how?Motor mounts broke,and shook bolts loose on everything,starter quit but found out the bolts were loose on it.Running after 3 week search but engine light won't go off or stop blinking.Detected #2 plug misfiring,changed wires/plugs & 2 batteries.Always had chassis noises.Fan cover hits fan, rubber stays broken,can't find any

Best Features

Love the look of the car,inside is very roomy,seats comfortable,nice stereo w/great features on it,easy to drive and handle,great heater and AC.Color:Plum Crazy..love it!*Goes with my TAZ seat covers!*

Worst Features

(Wider hood design,no room to work),better gas mileage,(gets 18/24now appx),FIX problems with over-heating and electrical..windows rolled down(on their own?),while raining!Over-heating problems hard to detect and fix.Battery/fuses under filter,hard to get to!Not good driving on ice! Must give it up
