2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

A defective turn signal lever (multifunction switch) can cause erratic operation of the turn signals and other exterior lights. Depending on the fault, a dead battery could result. Our technicians recommend replacing the failed switch.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

Drive Train -- Verified

2.4L 4 cylinder (non-turbo) Software updates to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) are available that can improve shift quality for rough up and/or down shifts. On higher mileage vehicles, other problems may cause shifting issues. Diagnoses may be required to isolate the cause. Anytime major transmission repairs are made the PCM software should be checked and updated as necessary.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

If the engine does not crank (or cranks but won't start), the wireless control module (WCM) may have locked up. This is due to static discharge through the ignition key. A revised model should be installed, but simply disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for thirty seconds will temporarily reset the module so you can start the car.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

"False" trouble codes may cause erroneous illumination of the Check Engine Light. Updating the PCM software can often correct this concern.

2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Reviews

I've had the front brakes done twice....excuse given to me was because I drive in the city alot on hills. I replaced all four tires and had them rotated once. Oil change every 3000 miles. Now I have a shimmy in the front end so that is my next fix it job. The car has been reliable. Had a check engine light on once, took it to the dealer, nothing found.....reset it and I was on my way again. Gas mileage leaves little to be desired but the car has good power. Lots of driving over 82,000 miles on it. Drove to LA several times and Las Vegas last summer and it did really well. Overall been a good car.

2007 PT NOT TURBO 50,000 MILES TO DATE FRONT BRAKES, TWO BRAKE LIGHTS, A/C LOW PSI CONTROL, BATTERY, SET OF TIRES, NOT BAD GOOD CAR GAS IS 17 TO 15 IN TOWN, 22MPG INTERSTATE. NOT MUCH POWER FOR GAS USEAGE. GOOD FAMILY CAR, TOOK IT ON A FEW 1000 + MILE TRIPS GOOD ON HWY.

I agree 100 per cent:
The brakes are non ABS and they really dont grab well.
I wonder whether it makes sense to allow ABS retrofitted,
if possible.
A ABS is essential for the security

The engine sounds like it should be diesel but its not. The transmission upshifs and downshifts when it wants to. I've had the chip "updated with new software" 3 times now. The front end wobble can be fixed if you have your CV joints, axle shafts, and lower control arms replaced... I did at 24k miles under the extended warranty. The brakes are non ABS and they really dont grab well. The stopping distances are long. The steering is vague, and the transmission/engine drones and has a mind of its own. It gets 17mpg around town, and if I have an extremely light foot and coast a lot I can get 21 on the highway. I can think of 1 nice thing... with the rear seats removed (they weigh a ton!) the back is cavernous. Next time i'm listening to consumer reports and buying foreign...

I wish i can say the same about my pt cruiser, I have 2007 seven pt cruiser and sense the first year we bought it i was bad, keep blowing fuses took it to the dealership and they told us that nothing was wrong, next year summer start and start doing again, they look and they found a short in the ingnition switch and they say the fixt it and the same day the car blow more fuses. they have several time after that and they can not find any problem with it. so
don't know what to do.
