Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler PT Cruiser: Exterior styling
Definately a love it or hate it design. Me, I love it. I love the lines of the car. It's a convertible, which looks more aggressive than the hardtop. I actually prefer the grill style of the 2005, but I'm happy. My on real complaint is with the roll bar. I think that it detracts from the profile when the top is down. Most PTs are considered to be "chick car"-ish, sort of like the Beetle conv. But I don't care, I love it in black only. The model is a Turbo GT and the upgrades are limited to the turbo badge, and the chromed wheels. Unfortunately, the wheels, while they look nice initially... they are really cheap and are a pain to keep cleen.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler PT Cruiser: Fuel economy
One would expect to get much better mileage from a car this size, however 17 city/23 highway is what I actually get.

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler PT Cruiser: Exterior styling
In my unique Tangerine Dream scheme it looks good. The front grill and stance gets attention. The matching interior is pretty sweet too.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler PT Cruiser: Reliability & durability
Everything. What a piece of junk. The longer you own one the quicker you learn just how many corners they cut. A plastic bolt on the clutch pedal? Chrome Wheels corrode, fuel pump went, window motor went, and many more issues.

19 MPG on average is just pathetic for a four-cylinder.

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler PT Cruiser: Exterior styling
Was a unique modern day interpretation of pre-war styling. Very likable in 2001. While still attractive, it is getting a bit tired now.

Cheap and poorly assembled

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler PT Cruiser: Driving position & visibility
Ingress / Egress is spectacular for this size / class of vehicle. Plenty of inside room for each passenger, no concerns with blind spots.

For size of vehicle, fuel economy should be 40% better.

Looks like I have to say something nice about the PT Cruiser, so here it is: you can throw a fair bit of crap in the back.
