The Chrysler PT Cruiser GT was the best version of a terrible car. Today I'm reviewing the best Chrysler PT Cruiser, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the high-performance PT Cruiser. I'm also going to drive the PT Cruiser GT and show you what it was like on the road.

  • Great car, nothing wrong with them. It’s not your style and that’s ok. Get over it. I don’t like the G500 cabrio you have, and that for a ridiculous price.

  • I had one and loved it!

  • That center dash is exactly what I had in my '02 dodge neon sxt. Even the tachometer was that same white color. Don't understand why chrysler was tanking at the turn of the century with innovations like that. Hmmmph

  • Doug, you're full of it with those blanket statements. I have a Cruiser Couture (black and silver) and always get compliments and many offers to buy. It's a 2010, I got it in 2013 and it is very reliable, only needing regular maintenance and tires. You sound fiercely anti - Chrysler

  • Review reeked of sarcasm and was not that helpful. PT Cruiser, much like your reviews . . .you love them or hate them, no in between.

  • maybe i was too young to take part in the hate train but i never disliked the car’s styling. I like the retro styling and i don’t think it aged really badly. I will admit the horizontal bar going across the grill is bad. it breaks up the grill where as the cars its based on does not have a bisected grill.

  • There is no way this car got to 240 at Le Mans 15:05. Also, how does the rear end lift due to down force? (Not meaning to hate, btw)

  • I own one. 2008, 2.4L turbo. Same color as this one. I LOVE MINE. I have blown away SEVERAL cars without my car even breaking a sweat. No internal gadgets that are computerized that go wrong. Easy to get fixed. I love the style. My parents hate it.

  • My parents had one of these when i was young. It was an auto, not a turbo, and wasn’t a gt. It worked well and was one of the first cheap cars with baby holder latches, so i could be securley latched. They actually bought it when my mom was still pregnant with me and it was ez to get in and out- that’s y old people like it. They liked the car and we still don’t hate it. If i found one w a stick or a gt w a stick for cheapish that would be kinda cool ngl.

  • The car is NOT slow, (turbo especially) it is reliable, and his first sentence is around taste...the car is certainly not ugly if it is why do so many stare and look at my convertible turbo go by?. I have had so many people call the car beautiful...Never liked any of this guys reviews. I've never had the door button freeze, the guard at the bottom of the door is meant to stop another car door from banging into yours. you can direct the airflow vents inside without an issue I have done it, the interior floor mats came with a GT moniker on them also the GT badging on the rear is missing from Doug's car he does not know the car well enough so please stop the misinformation. This is a future classic especially the 2005 Turbo convertible GT as that style was made only one year as the body changed slightly for 2006 onward. As far as the sound he is driving a modified car and should not sound this way. This is just a laughable review. The car is not meant for racing it is a touring mobile to get from point A to B. Doug gets a minus 5 viewer satisfaction grade NOT a very informed bit of info Doug.

  • I disagree about the "cheap plastic interior". Most of the door panels, steering wheel and some parts of the panel rubber plastic and of decent make. There are tons of chevy and Japanese cars (nowadays) with worst quality interiors. Quality of door handles are much superior than many Honda or Toyota of the same time.

  • Je roule en cruiser cabriolet GT et c'est une voiture très attachante avec plein de défauts mais robuste globalement. J'avoue que la vidéo est réaliste même si c'est loin d'être la voiture la plus laide du monde selon moi. La première prius par exemple était loin devant en terme de laideur.

  • If I test drove Doug DeMuro I wouldn't give him a very good review; maybe 4.5 out of 10. He's giving a critique of the FIRST GEN PT Cruiser, not the new gen. This guy seems to compare every car to his 'dream' or 'ideal' car as he talks about them. Let me give you a hint or the sake of context, Doug-- the Cruiser was a cheap car designed with a retro look. Mission accomplished. Why can't you review it in that light, and stop comparing apples to oranges? Your review can be interesting, but overall, as a buyer's guide or help, are so far off base that they suck. Too bad that this is likely your day job.

  • I was going to buy a lavender 2007 GT model. I had looked the car over, I had driven it, I was ready to send the guy an e-mail saying "Yes, I will buy this car!" Unfortunately, on the ride home my dad told me he was checking out the rocker panel under the car and turns out it was so badly rusted that he barely touched it and his finger broke right through. I opted not to buy the car and I was really bummed out for a few days.

  • I owned three of them 2004 2008 and 2010 and they were the best cars I ever had never had an issue problem with any of them and the interior space was wonderful for a tall person easy to get in and out of and you could carry a lot in the car I wish they still made them by the way do you know how foolish you sound in your video?

  • My wife drove one for 10+ years. Good little runabout for intown and short trips of 2-3 hundred miles. Transmission died in the 8th year, but other than that 120K+ miles with nothing but regular maintenance. Gave it to one of our G'kids and it was dead in less than 18 months. Boy, this guy is really picky on a "buy cheap, throw away when finished tin can". I know he'll hate on the Chevy HHR too since they were both designed by the same guy. BTW, no hate here, at least for the PT (Plymouth Truck)

  • I'm from Brazil, and when I was a kid I was crazy about this car, had a couple of miniatures of it and dreamt of riding in one, but since Chrysler cars were (and still are, if there are still any) very expansive here it never became a reality. I thought it was beautiful, and still kind of have a crush for it, well, guess that's not for everyone!

  • Hey Doug, you're a jack ass. It's easy to stand around and pick on a perfectly good vehicle for the stupidest "oddities" I've ever heard. You are what's wrong with the car community and why people can't just get along and enjoy and be proud of what they drive and spend their hard earned money to make their own. Must be nice to have money so you can drive whatever piece of shit you think is so cool. You can shove your reviews up your ass. Take care. Asshole.

Honestly i find the cheap or old or utterly bizarre even the stupid mini vans more entertaining content from this Doug. And i only recently started watching his content so I'm late to the party which is hilarious bc other CSworld morons make fun of doug when actually his channel has a well structured and persistent format that actually contributes greatly to automotive culture and knowledge

  • I think a lot of car-enthusiasts hate it because once you got past the weird outer shell, it was just okay and average. It wasn't ever meant to be a thrill ride or something for people who love driving for the sake of driving. It was a car to get yourself and your kids from home to school and work, but with an interesting exterior instead of yet another sensible and boring bodyshell. It wasn't great, it wasn't awful, it was... okay. And a lot of car-enthusiasts held it to the standard of a weird car and not the boring and sensible family-hauler it was made to be.

  • It's kinda like a car that could've been. I had a '05. It was anemic in power but it was utilitarian in its usefulness. The ride and handling were ok I thought. The styling and cheap interior didn't really bother me but it could've been better. The front seats could've been better, and who ever heard of a cruiser without cruise control? Yeah It was an ok car that could've been a better car if it had just been better executed in some important aspects. 🤤
