Great car too small.
Pros: low maintainance
Cons: uncomfortable seatingA very durable long lasting car. Too small for a man's 6' frame. You can't see any traffic lights.
Great little car for the money
Cons: Interior fabric holds stains, even waterLOVE LOVE LOVE the PT Cruiser. Very disappointed that they're no longer being built as I would have traded my second one for a third. Roomy (I'm over six feet tall and am more than comfortable), versatile and fun to drive.
Pros: versatility and zoom-zoom
Cons: turning radiusWe drove a non turbo version on a test drive and I thought it did well on inclines here in Jacksonville, FL. Then I read the article from Autoweek on the first turbo PT/GT. Ok, I want it and it`s been a very good transporter on trips and it`s great for a Massage Therapist. The Cruiser is easy to load,it`s versatile and a cool lookin car, plus it`s a personal appearence vechicle to show your ideas. I must say, I have not seen anyone copy my ideas of good applications...still the only good good lookin 2003 GT in Jax, FL. PS. ask my mechanic
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.
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'
