It is a silvery lavender color with black convertible top and it has a retro look to both the body and the interior.
I have had a 2007 PT Cruiser since 2008, and it's needed very little repairs in the ten years I've had it. It's true, you have to keep up on the maintenance. I use reliable shops and the dealer who sold me the car, so they have the history of it. Maintenance is the key with any auto. All will eventually stop if you don't keep up the maintenance. I take mine in to the same two shops, or the dealer, every autumn to make sure I will have no problems over the winter. Sometimes, the shop catches a mistake THEY did, like changing the battery without changing the bad cable. I hold onto my repair receipts so I can keep a history overall of the repairs and replaced parts. Overall, my car is great and should last for many years.
