Default PT Honesty!

Name one thing you love most about your PT Cruiser and name one thing you dislike most about your PT Cruiser. I will go first. The one thing I love most about my PT Cruiser is its style. The one thing I dislike most about my PT Cruiser is its low city gas mileage.

Dislke - dash in shadow - difficult to read in daytime - lights on don't help - nights OK

Love the look and feel!

Though I could complain about the crap gas mileage it is not like it snuck up on me, I knew the dirty secret before the purchase.
I hate the lack of space to work on the engine, in fact it will probably be the reason I get rid of it.

I had to sit down and read all the other posts to see what everybody is saying about what they like/dislike. I went over in my mind all the dislikes and really couldn't agree with them. The way the car is shaped, they (Chrysler) could have stuck a really small 4 cylinder or ever a 3, but they didn't. They gave us N/A buyers 150hp in probably the biggest capacity engine they could shoehorn in that cramped space, which is plenty for everyday normal driving and it'll cruise all day at way over the highest national speed limit we have here in the U.S. Handles well, extremely comfortable on short and long trips. You can load have a house load if your inclined to. I love the way it looks and proud to show it off at shows and cruise-ins. The gas mileage doesn't bother me so about the only thing that does is taking off the upper manifold to change plugs and wires but since it only comes around once every 50,000 miles or so, I can live with that.

@ Davey, Lmbo! Well, I wasn't aware...or perhaps I was so excited about getting Goldie until I didn't process the numbers for city/hwy miles per gal.
