Smile 05 PT touring convertible w/ 84k, worth or not?

I'm looking for a PT cruiser. Now I have an offer seems good but not sure.
It's 05 touring convertible with 84,000 miles and auto transmission. Clean CarFax, no accident/damage.
The owner is going to have a baby so he's gonna sell it and buy a big car.
Blue body, black interior and black roof. It's clean.
The exterior looks good and just a little bit scratches on it. It has leather cover on the seat (the first owner add it since he bought it).
New battery, New Front tires, older back tires but good condition.
Timing belt changed at 65k. Oil and filter changed every 3-4 months.
Water pump, Radiator Cleaning and Fan changed two years ago.
Everything works.
The only thing I'm not sure is the condition of engine and transmission. Also there are some rust marks on the joint of the two front folding seats.
He asked $5500

Is this one worth to buy?
My Dad would like me to buy a toyota/honda as they might be more reliable and gas savers. I'm now trying to convince him and myself to buy a PT.
I have few automobile knowledge, just need your help. I love PT cruiser very much.

That's a pretty good deal in that condition. Yes the others will get better mileage. They also will cost more to buy in the same condition and mileage.

Engine ought to be fine - ask if transmission ever had fluid flushed.
Trans should be flushed about every 50,000 miles - runs about $200 - be sure whoever does it only uses ATF + 4.

Probably someone sold them the belt needs changing routine.
