Who has the PT Cruiser?

I don't remember who it was that got it last year?
I'm looking at one and am wanting to know how they like it.

I don't have one... but just wondering... Are you looking at a NEW one, or a second hand one you've seen? Have you looked at on-line or Consumer Reports' reviews?

I'm looking at an 05 convertible with a 2.4 liter turbo charged engine. I have looked at user reviews all over and the pros are way outweighing the cons. Most of the cons are with the non turbo's and don't bother me.
I haven't looked at the Consumer Reports yet, I didn't think of that. Thanks Z!

My daughter has had one since they came out. She loves it. I do not find it as comfortable in the seats but.... The seats fold down and she always has it full of stuff. She can put all kinds of large items in it so for a single gal it works better than a truck. Certainly easy to load and unoad too.

Try test driving one as well. I did and it wasn't my type of ride, but many, many people like it and it does get good reviews.

Thanks everyone. The guy told me that he would let me have it overnight to test it out. I hope that I'm able to get it!! I'm being pessimistic right now. I always expect the bad so that when it's good, I'm overly excited!! LOL

My Mom has one and I have driven it several times before. I find it to be a very comfortable ride and it's decent on gas compared to a lot of larger cars. The interior design is nice as well with plenty of cup holders and space. The only thing that wasnt designed very well is the glove box - it's tiny! I can barely fit the car manual in it.

I think it is super cute and it's easy to spot in the parking lot! My Mom has the bright metallic blue one... we all love it!

This is what hers looks like:

I rented one in KC and found it a bit cramped... plus I could not find the stupid window button!!!! Decent looking asthetically, but functionally did not work for me. Oh, did not like the stick shifter thingy either.

Texasgirl, dont get it. It's based on a plymouth/dodge neon. The PT cruiser "looks" cute, but the parts and cost of plymouth/dodge cars is unbelievable. I advise against it. Take it from me. Head gaskets problems which cost alot.
