2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my PT brand new, have had it in the shop for the A/C 4 times, took it in saying the car feels like it runs rough & they said it's fine. My extended warranty of course is over and the motor blew! This is the most unreliable car I have ever had. The customer service stinks with Chrysler. I wish I could get out of the car, but resale on these is so low I'm stuck with it.


Best Features

Easy to maneuver around town.


Worst Features

Don't make the parts so cheap!

2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my Limited Turbo new. It was the styling that sold me. I love the roomy interior vs: the small exterior. Tall people don't do too well in the back seat however, (heads rub the roof). The original tires all went bad before 25K. Mechanically it has been sound. Has plenty of power for my needs. MPG could be better. Turning radius is wide so plan ahead, that's my only real beef right now. No issues as of 28K. Overall I have been happy with this car. Someday I may even calibrate the compass.


Best Features

Compact but roomy.


Worst Features

A little challenging to park due to wide turning radius.

Review

wish the car rode better, mpg is very disapointing 20-22 city and highway. expected more on highway. purchased new and spent multiple times in shop for sensors. paid for bumper to bumper warranty. brakes seem bad since new and has always had weird steering shimmy-like bad rotors, was told there was no problem and they turned the rotors. thankful i bought the warranty 60 months/65000 miles. no out of pocket. learned my lesson with my LHS, which i miss, that was a great car.


Best Features

style, it's the walter p. chrysler signature edition, sirius radio.


Worst Features

more horsepower, smoother ride, BETTER fuel economy. same mpg as much larger vehicles.

Review

This car is just plain fun. I have always driven large SUV's because of kids, but loved the look of the PT Cruiser. I bought this one for a steal and I LOVE it. It is responsive. It makes me happy to drive it. It never fails. The positioning of the instruments have taken getting used to, but I think it all lends to the different kind of car you see from the out side. Fuel economy is a about 20 city 24 highway for me. The seats do stain very easily so I bought covers. I love driving this car.


Best Features

Body styling...responsiveness...fun factor.


Worst Features

fabric for seating that resists stains
