I purchased this car through financing at my bank - 4 days into the grace period, I discovered that the car was overvalued, and CarMax refused to negotiate the proper lower price. Suffice to say, I returned the car (after they told my bank that "she can pay the remaining as the down"). NOT pleased with CarMax, but the car was all right.
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 went in to Carmax looking for a Jeep. I had own 3 jeeps in the pass and was not interested in anything else. I told the sale rep what I needed my automobile for and he showed me the PT Cruiser. I was not happy nor interested. However once I got the keys took it for a test drive and did a through inspection of its interior, features and saw how fuel efficient it was, I was sold. I have a terrible back problem and was scared the PT Cruiser would not be good for me based on its close proximity to the ground; I could not have been more wrong. the shock absorbency is simply incrediable. I did not feel the potholes as I drove around LA. My back is perfectly cushioned by the seats. This machine is very easy to drive,its as if its in cruise mode permanently. The turns are excellent. The PT Cruiser is not a automobile that drives on the road;it literally glides on the road. I would say this is a good car for a teenager or college student. I am the parent of a 19 yr old daughter, and I am so comfortable with her in this car, that I am going to give it to her for college. I am loving and enjoying this cruiser.Thank you Chrylser.
