05 is generally the answer.
01 has the most options
06 has the most problems
03has the most expensive cooling fan

03 is the only year you could get a GT in deep cranberry pearl and base trim level. Base trim has cloth seats and no power seat or sunroof so lots more headroom if you're above average.

'05 was a one-year-only body style for the convertible (not that I'm bias or anything...)

2001 Limited is the very best NA PT Cruiser. It's got lots of little extras later models didn't have.

For the turbo PT's, it's the 2005 GT. It's got the best standard options package and you get the composite intake manifold of the 2nd Gen turbo's.

For convertibles, it's the 2005 Dream Cruiser.

But for Dream Cruisers in general, it's the 2003 Dream Cruiser II. It's just a beautiful car.

BEST PT EVER?? I would nominate the 2004 Touring model.

** Honorary mention to the 2005, it's pretty much the same car

2007 or 2008 with the turbo engine... fresher, brighter interior, smoother bumper integration with the body........

I totally agree with Rob302. The 2006 and up have the Can Bus system and it's very difficult to trouble shoot when a problem arises.

This is why I recommend the 2004 & 2005 Pt Cruisers but prefer the 2005.
