i love this car. i've named her Lit'l Lulu. she's a red GT with taupe leather and a taupe top. this car is **A BLAST** to drive. so many people comment on her at stoplights, in parking lots, etc. everyone loves the car.
i just drove on an 800 mile trip with my 81 year young mother. she LOVES the car. she kept commenting on how fun and comfortable the car was. the PT provided excellent acceleration passing 18 wheelers and cars, alike. we felt very safe. the stereo was hard to hear, however, when we were going over 70 mph. we had to turn the volume up at higher speeds.
the car is so smooth. i have to watch the speedometer sometimes because it's easy to be unaware of how fast i'm going because of the PT's effortless acceleration.
i looked at the speedometer and i was going 95 one time (oops!). there's a great sense of safety and lots of visibility in being higher off the ground than normal cars. there's also lots of safety with the roll-bar and six air bags. (the roll-bar also cuts down on wind noise when the top is down.)
the insurance on this car is lower than i thought it would be, considering. the PT convertible is solid as a rock. i researched it and found that it got a "consumer report's" *recommended best buy rating*. also, for the last 4 years, the PT Cruiser had gotten excellents in all the consumer report's tested categories.... not bad!!
i like the nice interior lighting (there are even 2 lights in the roll-bar), matching interior/exterior dash trim, and the comfortable leather seats. the up/down on the convertible top is one-handed and is the easiest i've even seen. the windows coordinate with this function on their own -- very cool and useful... the whole manuever takes 9 seconds. the interior has lots and lots of room.
i'm SOOO glad i didn't get the miata (too small) or the mustang convertible (too macho) that i was thinking about.
Lit'l Lulu is just right.
