PT Cruisers are known for having problems which I did not know prior to buying. It has transmission issues, ignition coil needs replacing, oil leaks, thermostat blew twice, radiator fan stopped working at one point. Oil pressure is also an issue and puts me in some dangerous situations when turning out on a highway and I cant accelerate fast enough to get out of the way. I know 2 other people with PT Cruisers and they have had most of the same issues with their cars as well.

My PT Cruiser is a pretty great vehicle. I haven't experienced too many problems with it. The main complaint I have about it is that it's difficult for mechanics to figure out what's wrong with it if it's something related to the car's "computer" system, which is mostly where the problems I've experienced have occurred. Other than that, it's a comfortable car to ride in and drive. It drives smoothly and it's fairly quiet.

It is very comfortable to drive and it is very reliable. It is roomy. It has good acceleration. It has a sunroof. It gets decent gas mileage. It is equipped with a satellite/am/FM stereo with CD player. It has good sounding speakers. The back seats fold down or they can be removed to transport a dryer or small appliances. It is equipped with rear window defogger along with a wiper. The passenger windows are tinted.
