What Edmunds.com says...
The 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser is a passable choice for those seeking a small wagon, but there are newer competitors that surpass it in virtually all areas.
Spacious cabin with great utility, smooth ride.
Aged design, tepid acceleration with the base engine, unimpressive fuel economy, awkward seating position for shorter drivers.
The 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser is available only as a wagon -- the convertible body style has been discontinued. Additionally, Touring models are no longer available with a turbocharged engine.
