I absolutly love this car. Black with tan interior. I was coming from a 2003 Santa Fe, so you can imagine I was comfortable driving a little bit higher with and SUV. Being in the PT Cruiser, it still gives me that SUV feel behind the wheel. There were other convertables I drove, and all of them made me feel like I was in the seat of an Indy car. With this car, you do sit up a little bit higher. Also, with the top and windows down, you can still have a conversation with your friend riding shotgun and still be able to hear them. The only thing I miss about my Santa Fe is the amount that I could fit inside of it. But I would gladly trade being able to move things around for a better overall car.
I bought this car for my son and everything went wrong with this car. Here is the list all within 2 years. 1. The rear tail light 2. AC went out 3. Engine stop working had to replace. 4. Transmission stop working (told them to come get it). I refused to pay a car not and work on this car. I could have bought a fixer upper ride. If I really wanted to work on a car.
I purchased a 4D/5 speed PT Cruiser wagon. I researched PT Cruisers before I bought this car. Its a great car for the price. I had heard that they were really small and had little space inside. I found that the convertible 2D is small and only has two seat belts in the back but the 4D wagon has plenty of room plus the back/trunk is much bigger. This car is fast and is a smooth ride. It handles really well. I was surprised how good it handled for its body shape. It gets really good gas mileage considering its an SUV/van, really good on the highway. I like how the window controls are on the middle console and not on the doors. It has a great system with a 6 disc CD changer. Two surprises was the shelf in the back has a leg that comes down which turns it into a table and a secret drawer under the passenger seat! Plus I love the 3 little chrome stripes on the fenders! The only negative things I have found is the turning radius is really wide. If you have to U turn, make sure you have plenty of space! I have the 5 speed and finding reverse is really tricking and sometimes aggravating. But everything else is great on this car, I love it!
