Thumbs up Re: OK SO WHY IS THIS CAR SO DAMM ADDICTIVE

Ironic just how addictive this car is giving that 10 years produced around 1.5 million. Most built in Toluca, Mexico. Also for Europe, Graz, Austria(Eurostar). Same guy (Nesbit) co-designed the HHR for Chevy. Does this addiction lead to rehab, divorce, insanity, poverty, or combination? Time will tell. What ever floats your boat!

I hated PT Cruisers before I got one. Now I see they are great cars and I would buy another one. Maybe they're addicting because they always suprise you. Like when I fit a recliner, a glider rocker with foot stool, and a regular chair in the back at once. I just wish mine wasn't an auto.

PT Cruisers are the "Model T's" of this millennium!

Why is the PT Cruiser so addictive? Here's some real answers both heartening and offensive.

1. There are cheap. You can buy a pretty nice one for only a few thousand bucks. And you can often buy a fixer-upper for pocket change.

2. Lot's of accessories available. I don't know of that many modern cars that have such a full and varied after-market.

3. Sporty and mailable. They have a unique and sporty look. I see lots of newer plain-Jane models that looks like boring SUV's, a few newer ones that look like luxury cars and I also see lots of older ones that look more like street rods. The PT can just about be any kind of car you want with the right accessories.

4. Small and easy to work. Yes, the PT is EASY to work on compared to many newer cars. If you read enough of this forum, even the more complicated PCM and CAN Bus stuff has pretty well been worked out. If you don't think the PT is easy to work on, grab a Mazda of the same vintage and tear into it. You will be wishing it was a simple and elegantly designed Chrysler in no time.

5. Lot of spare parts. Salvage yards are now becoming full of the older ones. And the 2nd Gen's aren't far behind.

6. Most of the common design flaws are easy to fix. This means any DIY owner will get to spend plenty of quality time rooting out and successfully fixing all the little problems that Chrysler failed to.

7. Did I mention they were cheap to buy?
