A lot of Todays new auto's are built on the Downsized Cross Over SUV style, same size Give or Take a few inches and they all look pretty good....However the PT Cruiser and the GM HHR, the ForeRunners of todays new look auto's still have that Unique Look/Style...They were ahead of their time for sure...

I believe someone else on this forum said that it's easy to spot a PT in a parking lot, while other vehicles tend to blend in with all the others

And doesn't it bring a smile to your face when you spot your PT in a parking lot

Also don't need a step ladder to get in, and save money on tires! 18 inch wheels on passenger cars are obscene. I also like being able to parallel park my little shortie!

Thumbs up Re: Reason for PT Cruiser Popularity...

I bought mine entirely for the looks. Was pleasantly surprised to find what a great all-round vehicle it really is

I'm satisfied with economy as well as easy to repair. I can knock out a timing belt with the kit in a few hours now. I also just replaced the entire rear suspension without any issues. Step by step and the right tools are a plus (u-tube has helped as well).
