Chrysler PT Cruiser Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
For a car that weights over 3100 lbs and has this much room inside, the 22-24 mpg is not bad.
2006 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Very good. My personal commuter.
2004 4dr Wagon turbocharged 220hp 2.4L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Good compromize between performance and fuel economy, with most cars the gas milage is proportional to the right foot.

2009 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
For size of vehicle, fuel economy should be 40% better.
2008 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
For a 4 cyl engine it really show get a little better MPG.
2007 2dr Convertible turbocharged 180hp 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
It averages around 15 in town and no better than 20 highway. This is way behind the curve of other more modern small cars.
2006 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
This thing had a 4 cylinder but sucked fuel like a big V-6 or larger. Is this the result of cinder-block like aerodynamics?
2006 2dr Convertible turbocharged 230hp 2.4L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
One would expect to get much better mileage from a car this size, however 17 city/23 highway is what I actually get.
2005 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Manual transmission with standard 4 cylender engine averages 25 mpg. Power is just adequate.
2004 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Poorer than I expected, not much better than my Porsche!
2003 4dr Wagon turbocharged 215hp 2.4L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I have a 91 8 cylinder truck that gets better gas mileage
2003 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Poor highway fuel economy, compared to Vibe. Poor city fuel economy, compared to Vibe.
2002 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
19 MPG for a fairly small, four-cylinder engine is barely acceptable. No advances in engine technology here. At least, none from the last 20 years. When driven gently, garaged and driven about 20 miles round trip per day (10% highway): 20 MPG. :-(
