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. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
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? see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
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. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
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. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
