You are in the Chrysler PT Cruiser
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler PT Cruiser, Wagon
#1 of 879 Utility, gas friendly, cool looks, easy on the wallet!

I just drove one (loaded) leather, moonroof, cd,
16" wheels, tint, the whole 9 yards. Sticker?
$20,000! It was so damn cool!
The interior is the most versatile interior I have
ever encountered! The rear deck cover pulls out
and makes a table for tailgating parties! The back
seats fold down or can be pulled out completely.
The front passenger seat folds flat for more cargo
Based on a Neon the PT gets around 30mpg!
They are coming out with a turbo soon.
Cooler than a minivan but big enough for a family.
I will buy one. You?

Oh, very well then.
No, I would not consider buying a Chrysler product because of their poor reliability records. Recent Chrysler models are notorious for peeling paint, electrical problems, failing head gaskets, drivetrain and transmission failure and a host of other design flaws.
They are poorly-engineered vehicles, and owning one will put you on intimate terms with their service department.
I shudder to think of owning any Chrysler, let alone a turbocharged model. Although the PT Cruiser may be fun to drive (for a minivan), I couldn't bring myself to overlook their terrible reputation, and I feel that if you would purchase one, well, lets just say you better get the extended warranty, and maybe buy a second car for those days when the PT Cruiser is at the shop.

So it is a forgone conclusion that, no matter what, a Chrysler will break down. Hmmmmm well, that's pretty trite.
I think the same sort of web sites and similar comments regarding overall craftmanship can be found for just about every manufacturer. As a matter of fact, if I go to Alldata and look it up, it seems as though they have spared no one! Mercy!

Ya don't recall the Daytona? Shadow? GLH? etc. I don't remember CP having a major problem with turbos.

No, I didn't say that.
However, statistically speaking, you're probably better off with another manufacturer.
