PT Cruisers tend to get a bad rap for whatever reason, but it actually is a pretty reliable and good car, especially compared to others out there.

I have always wanted a PT Cruiser and my current car is my second Cruiser. It gets decent gas mileage and actually has a quite a bit of space, which is useful since I tend to move regularly. I did learn within the last year or so that the design of the car makes checking under the hood/around the engine difficult, and I have been having tire issues with it, but overall I love my car.

- Dana P

I absolutely love that even though my car is small, it is still spacious.

The car sits really low to the ground so the front bumper will catch from time to time. Also after 100, 000 miles, the car does not always accelerate like it should. I have had to make repairs to the wheel bearings twice. The termostat of the car has only gone out once and the check engine light has only come on twice in the 4 years I have had this car.

- Desi D

The p. T cruiser is a cute car but a bruiser to drive.

This car has been a problem since the first month we bought it. The tire rod has snapped. The lights in the car have needed replaced multiple times, I wish someone would have told me the car was discontinued for technical issues. Size wise its roomy but compact. I live in the city and can park it almost anywhere.
