Great little car but don't expect much with the fuel mileage. With just a few exceptions, most owners are in the low 20's. Get a decent warranty, it'll give you peace of mind while your paying it off. There are problems but no more than a lot of other cars out there. I have 92K and had 3 problems that required dealer work.

Best car I've ever owned!! You will love it. Yeah, gas mileage ain't the best. I get 22-24mpg and drive about 50 miles a day. Have had no major problems.

The PT is a great first vehicle. I've had mine for 2yrs (since I was 16) and it's been a nice, reliable car.

As the others have stated, the gas mileage isn't the best so don't expect much there.

We have had two, a 2002 and now a 2007, we liked the first one so much that we bought another one.

Hopefully Congratulations are in order today! Tell us all about it when you get it. I have had mine for 6 weeks tomorrow and have never loved a car as much as I love this one! I usually trade every 2-3 years but I plan to keep this one a long time. Everyone here is wonderful and very knowledgeable. As everyone said the gas mileage isn't the best (I'm going to do the Airaid soon) but the trade off for such a fun car is worth it. I'm planning to spend alot of time in the drive keeping mine clean and keeping the miles off of it.

Hope to hear more from you soon!
