2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring from North America
Buy this car. It's worth it
They only thing I could say is that my front wheels often get brake dust on them, and I have to take the time to have them cleaned.
I am in love with my car. Sitting in it the first time, I couldn't believe that as ugly as it was on the outside, it was this amazing on the inside.
Great storage space in back, and much bigger than it looks.
Speakers are great.
Gets about 25 HMPG.
Fun and easy to drive, I'd imagine a great starter car.
A great price for everything you get.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring 2.4L from North America
Used as a rental car, traveled 2500 miles. 2009 touring edition.
Absolutely horrible gas mileage. We averaged 23mpg. How can they classify it as a touring edition. With bad mileage and a fairly small gas tank.
The passenger seat was squeaky when going around any turn or bump.
The vehicle needs a larger engine for the size. 2.4L (and a weak 2.4 at that) is not enough to pull the car up hills without the transmission having to regularly down shift.

I just can't get over how many people gripe about 20+ miles per gallon. I guess I'm the only one who remembers the days of 10 to 12 MPG from the seventies. I get 20-21 in my 2001 PT and I'm very satisfied with it.

Any 4 cylinder car that was made in 2009 should get over 30 mpg unless it is a turbo. I would be disappointed as well if I owned this car and got only 23 mpg. V6 cars do much better than that these days, and they aren't underpowered like this car seems to be.
My V6 RAV 4 regularly gets in the mid twenties for mixed driving mileage. It certainly has enough power and is more of a utility vehicle than the PT is. Yes, I'd have to agree the mileage is pitiful on the PT.
