Thumbs up PT Cruiser Compliment Thread - Post The Ones You Get Here

I see lots of threads with reports of folks talking ugly about the PT Cruiser. But my experience is very different. Even though my PT is older and somewhat faded, I still often get several unsolicited compliments a week on my cool little car.

This week I was walking out of the post office when I heard a young guy ask the older guy with him what kind of "awesome car" is that? The old guy told him that was PT Cruiser loaded down with options like they used to come. Next, a young engineer at work told me he wished he could find an inexpensive commuter car as clean, sporty and "cool" as mine. And a little old church lady told me Sunday that she really liked my "little red car" and thought it was "so cute".

Now it's your turn. Please recount the stories of people complimenting your PT below. And let's keep 'em coming. Some need to be reminded just what a head-turner a PT Cruiser can be.

That same guy must have come up from Arkansas for a day. I was going into the post office when a young guy said "I really like the rims on your car".

Also, a guy filling up at the pump next to me at Sam's last week said "I've always liked those. That's a nice color". He was driving a Lexus SUV that probably cost as much as three Cruisers.

Went to a parts store and unloaded some old tires (had to pay a few bucks per tire).
Anyway, he said my BTG exhaust sounded really good

Last Sunday the wife and I went for a short drive up the mountain and stopped at one of our usual overlooks. While there a couple in their late 50 to mid 60s(driving silver truck with camper shell) looked over our PT as if they were shopping for a PT Cruiser. My wife and I were on the path going to the overlook and we listened as both praised our PT with complements. That was the first time we had gotten such attention from our PT since we got it 2 years ago. It felt nice!

My friends all like my PT, but mostly they're happy I have a car with A/C...living in Florida without A/C has sucked the last few years...it seems to be getting hotter.

BTW: I haven't had A/C in a car since around 1993 & that was only for about a year before car got totaled in MD when I hit Black Ice...than a tree.
Other than that, only my 1st car when I was 15 had A/C...most muscle cars I've owned had it removed or never came with it.

Talking Re: PT Cruiser Compliment Thread - Post The Ones You Get Here

When I had the 2006 Black GT convertible, the Black Sheep, wiffie's service manager (Ford) said "Wow!"
"Best looking Cruiser that he had ever seen!"

Soon after I bought the 2005 Dream Cruiser convertible last fall, I took it to my fav dealer to have the oil changed and a good once-over....
Two sales guys ran out and offered to buy it!

I call those pretty good compliments!

Move down south and you won't have that problem near as much.
