Faithful 2001 PT Cruiser
Our PT Cruiser was purchased new in fall of 2000 and has been an excellent vehicle. Safe on the road, comfortable, roomy, multiple seat configrations and very nice gas mileage. 16-years later, there have been no major issues (as in breakdowns) - routine maintenance, expected for any automobile has kept her in tip-top shape. However, given the "acid rain" from forest fires in our area and the hot summers, it is time for a new paint job - again, not surprising. All facets of the interior are in excellent condition as well. Because of the roominess, long road trips are pleasant and the great handling and weight of the car provides that extra safety on the road. Though she is becoming "long in the tooth" for a single-owner car, I doubt that I will ever trade her in - a second, newer car is in the near future, but the PT Cruiser will remain our old-faithful workhorse.
