I am sick and tired of people running down the PT Cruiser. First off, what did you expect with a car that you only paid $4600.00 for with over 100,000 miles.
As for the power end of it all, you should have known that from the get go after the first test drive.
I would buy one. I think it really does not matter what make or model you get, you can get a faulty one in any brand make or model.

I have to agree. You bought a used car on the cheap with over 100,000 miles on it. Chrysler may make some inferior vehicles, but the PT Cruiser is fairly reliable (albeit kind of ugly in my opinion). In fairness to the PT, they are a pretty decent car and very versatile.

The PT Cruiser is a very decent car, well built and reliable. I would think you got a car that was poorly maintained, but that's bad luck, but it doesn't imply that the model is bad, at all.

Honestly I would have to say that before saying that the PT is a glorified Neon they are wrong. They are a unibodied car built only for the PT design and for the engine it is not a Neon engine. The Neon does not carry a 2.4 litre engine, the PT is most definitely its own car altogether!
As a recent PT owner I bought this car in pieces and put the engine together myself and would have to disagree in the PT being a problematic vehicle! You should have known what kind of performance you were getting before you even paid for it!

I have to agree with the poster. This car is junk! If you've never owned one, then don't post. My hunk of junk Crapsler PT Snoozer had a transmission leak the weekend I brought it home. 4 days later it overheated in winter, needing a fan relay replacement.
The switch for the turn signals/wipers would intermittently cause a short to make the headlights stay on while the car was sitting parked with the key removed.
Less than 5000 miles later, after the switch was replaced, there was a short in the wiring making the door chime and light stay on. All door switches replaced, still same problem, so you had to hear the chime every time you took your foot off the brake, and keep the interior lights off so you couldn't see the speedometer or gauges at night. Ding ding ding! It got to be more like the tell tale heart.
To top it off, the car constantly overheated on drives over an hour. Look it up online, thousands of people had these problems. I owned this car 18 months, and put only 7000 miles on it. Chrysler makes junk, and I will NEVER buy another piece of crap from them again.

"keep the interior lights off so you couldn't see the speedometer"
In Europe no-one drives with the interior light on...
