Haven't had that problem, just be sure your fluid level stays up until you take it to the dealer.

When you take it in, have them check ALL clamps.[xx(] I had a Dakota that had a clamp loose, I was able to see it on the carport/garage floor.

Some have lost their heater cores. It causes antifreeze to leak into the passenger side. If that is what happened, insist on new carpeting. You will never be able to get the smell out otherwise. I do know of one other PT Cruiser owner who was successful at getting his carpet replaced under warranty. He had to go to the Regional Rep. to get it done.
Enjoy the cruise.
