Pt cruiser can be a headache.

2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring

The pt cruiser was obviously designed to give an updated sleek racing look to the Chrysler line. Problems have been overheating, radiator, thermostat changes constantly, dashboard cracks, and a wiring harness. The vehicle is a pretty fast four cylinder with reasonable gas mileage. The car is okay for a while after getting it out of the shop.

Great car purchase in 2003.

2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring

I bought my vehicle brand new in 2003 and have not had any major problems. I have only to replace the radiator. Gas mileage is good, very reliable. I get regular oil changes, place brake pads when needed. Overall, great car in great condition and intend to keep her forever.
