Default I got an 05 Touring PT Cruiser

Anything I should know about this car? I bought it, I love it but it is the newest car I have ever had and spent this much money on. I didn't have a lot of time to research the car before I got it. Any info would be helpful. Thanks

Welcome, Terri.
How many miles on it?
Whenever I buy a used car, first thing I do is change the oil - you don't know for sure what oil is in there, or how long it's been in there (yeah, they all say they just changed it).
I love Mobil 1 synthetic - costs more, but worth it.
I change it every 5,000 miles.
Plan to replace the spark plug wires - the stock wires are crap and don't last. Crane wires at www.RaceAndStreet.Com are the way to go.
Should put in new plugs at the same time - plugs are cheap and any auto store will have them.

Check the tire pressure - buy a dial gauge at an auto store - both my PTs were way low on pressure when I bought them - keeping the tires inflated is better for the tires and gas mileage. The correct tire pressure for your car is on a sticker on the jamb of the driver's door.
That's about it.
