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


This GT wagon rides and handles exceptionally well, and accelerates briskly once you get the turbo to wake up.
The riding position is surprisingly high, but I got used to it fairly quickly. I posted this because I didn't see anone else with the turbo and a stick.
My mpg is a lot better than I've read here (22-23 combined) on 89 octane.
With these cars out of production, the resale value is sinking rapidly, which is a good thing for possible buyers.
Mine had 56k miles when I got it and it is very tight and rattle-free.

Best Features

Solid feel, good handling, crisp shifting. Roomy for four passengers. Lots of storage space. Still looks good after many years in production.

Worst Features

Out of production so it's too late, but something might have been done about the wide turning radius. Sound system is OK but not as good as I expected. Mileage should be better than it is.
