2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Problems

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.

2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Reviews

I bought this 2010 PT for my wife, who liked the retro styling and the convenience of a wagon. 60k miles and three years later, problems are beginning to appear, in spite of better than regular preventive maintenance. The gas mileage has slipped into the high teens, the front, lower control arm bushings have failed for the second time since new, the car is burning a bit of oil (Mobil 1) after the first two thousand miles and, most recently, the second ABS wheel sensor has failed. Overall, these are problems which one might expect at 120k miles, not 60k miles. For twenty grand, a Corolla or Civic would be a MUCH better value, I am sorry to say. Looks are fleeting; quality means everything. This is a practical design, but with less than quality engineering applied.
