I had it towed to my house and then I couldn't ...

Although this is not my first choice in a car, for the money I find the pt cruiser fun to drive and a good value. I have only had my 2009 cruiser for 3 months, but have not had one complaint.

I bought the my cruiser in Aug 2009 and almost immediately found a front end wobble that would occure between 43 and 48 mph. I only had about 300 miles on the car when I took it in to my service dept. I was shocked when after I was told that two service tech's drove the car and the wobble was typical Cruiser.
