2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Problems

Engine & Ignition shutting down

Today, 2/9/2015, my engine and ignition just shut down - completely stop while I was driving. This is dangerous and very scary. It is a computer and other problem which is Chrysler's fault and no fault of mine -- even though Chrysler does not make these PT Cruisers any more, it should be a recall. Chrysler owes me to fix this car for free or give me another one that is almost free since I should not be needing a car.

Software Updates For Powertrain Control Module to Address Erroneous CEL

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

Software Updates for Powertrain Control Module Will Improve Shift Quality

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.

2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Reviews

Bought a 2007 PT Cruiser base model about 3 years ago for my Son's first car. If you don't read any further at least read this NEVER EVER BUY ONE OF THESE JUNK CARS. I laugh at these PT forums where they think the car is so freaking great. The car looked great, base model, silver, chrome wheels. But in my gut, being an experienced backyard mechanic I knew Chryslers poor quality history bu...
At 62000 miles no real problems. Replaced 2 tail lights, the plastic cover on the left side of the drivers seat replaced 2 times. the worst is gas mileage. local driving around 20. long trips the most 27 per gallon. I also have a Neon and it gets 26 around town and up to 38 on long trips. Same engine type. It must be the design or body style.
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....
