2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible Turbo from North America
I love the look and feel of the car, but with repair bills like this so soon; buyer beware!
I was very disappointed to find out that the power steering rack needs to be replaced at 40,600 miles. I was given an estimate of about $1000.00 to replace it.
The lower control arm barrens are also gone at 40,000 miles. I was given another rough estimate of $250.00 - 300.00 to replace.
A lot of money for a car with only 40,000 miles.
I'm not sure how something so major can go on a car with only 40,000 miles. I've always loved everything about this car, but now I'm skeptical about it after getting an estimate of about $1300.00 to fix such major parts (power steering rack, line, lower control arms barrens) as previously mentioned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I agree. Love the car, but at 3 years old and 70,000 miles, I have had to replace the tires 3 times, brakes 3 times, and now my heater core is leaking, $1000 estimate to fix, and the clean air intake tube/hose is ripped and needs to be replaced; $100 just for the part on that.
Also, less than a year into it, my windshield wiper fluid things on the hood dry rotted, and have had to be replaced twice, generic doesn't fit, must be Chrysler... YIKES... first and last time I ever buy a brand new car!
