2006 2dr Convertible turbocharged 230hp 2.4L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I have logged many miles with family in tow. There is ample space in both the front and rear. Actually surprising considering the diminuitive size of the PT. The extra leg room for the rear passengers comes at the expense of cargo space. Tiny trunk that is difficult to access if you are tall. Costco runs are always interesting. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2006 4dr Wagon 150-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
The motor is a free reving , good acceleration if you rev it out, sounds nice . see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
2006 2dr Convertible turbocharged 230hp 2.4L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I test drove the non- turbo model and hated it. Weak and gutless. I do a ton of highway driving. Without a turbo it would strain on long inclines and frighten you trying to merge onto a crowded highway. The turbo elilminated that and I found that I always had plenty of power to do what I needed to do. The transmission is clunky and not very smooth. Unfortunate, but tolerable. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review

Chrysler has a new 2.4 liter engine that gets much better mileage but has refused to spend the money to update the PT with it. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review

They forgot to feed the hampster under the hood before I left the rental shack. Engine was over matched driving on 2 and 4 lane highways through central PA. see full Chrysler PT Cruiser review
