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

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

Manual transmission with standard 4 cylender engine averages 25 mpg. Power is just adequate. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
