It is really a fun car to drive and does very well on curves.
I bought my car used with about 70, 000 miles on it. I have been very pleased with it is performance and upkeep. I live roughly 32 miles one way from work so gas mileage is pretty important and I can usually get back and forth to work on a week's worth of gas if I do not do a lot of running around during the week. It is front wheel drive so it handles very well on the road and very well in the snow. I change my oil on a regular basis and check fluids as well. Other than regular maintenance, I have had to charge the air conditioning twice - the biggest problem seem to be is the cooling fan and it has had to be replaced every year. But we have only paid for one of them because there's a lifetime warranty on it - although it is a pain to replace. Had to recently replace the serpentine belt but According to the manual it should been replaced so you are not stranded somewhere on the side of the road if it happens to break. Replaced the head gasket because the car wasn't heating up last winter, blown head gasket. All in all, I have been very happy with my PT Cruiser and if the opportunity came available I would definitely buy another one if I could find one with low miles and it had been well taken care of with regular maintenance and upkeep.
