Chrysler tries,but can't equal a real Mercedes
Pros: Sporty look and agility
Cons: Poor warranty coverage and serviceBetween the poor service/warranty and Chryslers' lack of support,I would have avoided this vehicle.Check the rear wheel tilt-acceptable is +/- 1.5).Mine was at 1.2(with-in tolerance:so they say) and the vehicle ate tires every 10K miles.Once a year,you will need to spend about $800 for a new set.Oil changes will tag you for $100+ and God forbid ,you have a radiator leak,you will need to replace the $146 cabin filter.If you have gobs of money to toss about frivolously,this could be your vehicle.Sound system was very good,but didn't compensate for the problems occuring after purchase.Chrsler is very good at putting off warranty work until after it has expired.Don't expect an 'olive branch' when trying to get them to cover anything-much like pulling your own teeth.
Fun and peppy
Cons: too much road noiseBeen a very good car. Few problems. Fun to drive and too cute. Turbo makes it respond quickly and run really fast.
Best Vehicle Ever
Cons: Tire wearGreat car!
PT Cruiser - GT Series (only)
Pros: Performance.. car is computer governored at 135 mph.
Cons: Temptation to 'weigh' your foot on the gas pedal...Most fun, comfortable, and flexible car I've ever owned (above Mercedes, Volvo, Olds Toronado, Mercury Grand Marquis). With the H.O, turbo,performance is great and (with restraint) the gas mileage is good (27-29 hwy.).
Good solid Car
Pros: Seat comfort
Cons: Gas milageVery practical, dependable ride'
Chrysler 300 - Love mine
Pros: The Ride
Cons: Sits a little low and can have some blind spotsI have the V6 3.5 engine, the gas milage is great for the size and comfort of the car. I get 20 mpg around town and 28 on the highway. I have 90,000 miles and have not had any maintenance other than the normal wear items. The price of new vehicles is getting higher and higher, I bought mine used 4 years ago with no regrets. If you are looking for a solid car with comfort and style the 300 with not disappoint.
