    Bought my 2005 Limited Edition PT in 2011, and purchased extended warranty from dealer. Almost immediately started having shifting difficulties. VERY delayed shift, accompanied by much chugging. This problem comes and goes--always gone when taken to the dealer for repair. The first time I took it in, I was told the right front wheel was about to come completely off, so that issue was fixed, but they couldn't find any problem with the transmission or shifting. Now, on top of the STILL ongoing shifting problem, it is taking longer and longer for the ignition to catch. It cranks and cranks and cranks, and just when you're about to give up, it starts. Got my Consumer Reports auto edition just last week--2005 PT listed in Worst of the Worst. Gee, I wish I'd known that sooner!

    I bought my 2005 PT(PurrdyThang)new, May 30th, 2010. She is Dark Plum Pearl Metalic. She is the PERFECT car for me. I would buy another one in a heartbeat, but I plan on keeping Her, till I take my last breath. Sounds kinda cheesy, right? O WELL..................

    I have a 2005 convertible. I have had issues with the air conditioning leaking, the bearings on the wheels failing, oxygen sensors replaced, the brakes, and the radiator replaced. I am a staunch American car buyer, and although alot has been replaced by the 7/70 extra warranty that I bought, this has been ridiculous.

    I bought my Pt Cruiser new, in the fall of 2004. Within the 1st year, the fuel pump module, which incorporates the fuel guage, was replaced 3 times on warranty. The last time the tank had to be replaced, as the dealer cracked it in the process. The Engine has always run rough, which the dealer says is normal. The transmission (automatic) developed a whine this past summer. The 1st trip to the dealer, they determined it WAS an abnormal sound, and replaced the "transfer gears", which did not change the noise. They then decided it WAS NOT an abnormal sound, and I should ignore it. I called another dealer, and was told they would have to charge me the $100. deductable again (normal for 7-70 warranty claims) since the other dealer had already aledgidly fixed the problem. I called Chrysler, and they offered no help, and said the second dealer was correct. The car has 68,900 miles on it and I am sure as soon as it hits 70,000 the transmission will die. My best advice to anyone looking to buy a new car, DO NOT buy a Chrysler product. My Dad warned me of this 44 years ago, when he bought a 1966 Dodge Coronet, and fought with Chrysler for a year over a bad engine. He traded it in on a used Chevy, and said it was the best decision he ever made.

    I bought my 2005 Touring about 3 months ago. Had 50K miles. Since then, I've replaced the front bushings & control arms. Also needed a tune-up. The "somethings wrong" light started showing, AGAIN. Replaced split trans hose. I've put this thing up for sale. No more Chryslers.

    I bought my cruiser new and have had it for 4 years. It has about 52K miles on it, and at about 48K we started having problems. In the last 4 months, we've replaced the radiator, front wheel bearings, control arms, and it needs new CV joints which are on back order. The only saving grace to all of this is the Chrysler extended service contract I bought -- it has covered every single thing they've had to do on our car. But I will not buy another Chrysler/Dodge product.

    I have a 2005 PT Cruiser and love her. Great gas mileage, comfortable and cozy. Never a problem until now. My brake lights will not come on. If any one know how to fix it please write back. When I have this one payed off I'll get another it is that good!

    At under 35,000 miles the 2005 PT Cruiser I bought new, had to have it's front end arm bushings replaced twice. Also at under 35,000 miles all four spark plugs had to be replaced. Now at under 50,000 miles I find that there is a problem with the ABS I am looking into getting repaired. Needless to say, I am not a big fan of Chrysler.

    My wifes' convertable is fully equiped with all extras. She calls it her youth mobile. We have had no problems except the cost of the tires for this sports model. The high output turbo gives a lot of power but uses more gas then we like.
