My PT Cruiser is good... the only thing that is a problem is those damn chrome rims... I switched mine. Other than that, it's good on gas - mine is a 2002 - as you pobably know, the newer models are even better on gas. They are also convenient due to the extra space inside. Mine also has the roof rack which is very handy. The car is a good value for you dollar, I'd get another one.

I bought a 2007 PT Cruiser convertible in May 2009. I really like the car; paid about $14,000 and the car only had 5,500 miles. The gas mileage could be better (approx. 24 MPG for mixed driving). The only concern I would have is that the car is low to the ground. If you live in a snow belt area this could be a problem. Good luck.

My 05 PT ( 2.4L Turbo, 82,358 miles ) is not running well. It will lose speed/power at high speeds. I ran the above codes over at a shop. Can anybody point me to where I can find what the codes mean? Thanks.

Sometimes google searches work, or else try an Autozone or O-Reilly Auto Parts Store.
#114 of 116 overheating this winter 2001 with 70K
Jan 04, 2011 (10:52 am)
Greetings, our 01 PT cruiser is runningextremely hot. This is odd as its is winter now (About 20 F here int he Cleveland Area) I have checked oil and coolant regularly. Recently the coolant has needed fill in the eservoir as it seems to always need some and the last fill it seemed empty but we've kept up on it. Is there some typical problem with these 2.4 L motors?

If you're adding coolant and the engine's temperature is rising; my first guess would be a blown head gasket. You need to get the car checked out immediately. You don't want coolant mixing with oil. As for the Chrysler 2.4L, it's been a fairly reliable engine. Good luck.
#116 of 116 Problem with PT Cruiser dash lights
Nov 02, 2011 (7:38 am)
My PT Cruiser's warning lights started blinking rapidly and my speedometer started going up and down. I rapidly lost speed from 40 to 0 and just managed to get off the road.
For anyone who is also experiencing this dangerous problem please go to http://www.safercar.gov/ to report it. Numerous people have already, but the more people who do the more likelihood that a recall will be put on the issue and we won't get the run around from Chrysler anymore. They will have to research the issue and fix this life threatening problem.
