WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA -- I had a 2004 Pt Cruiser. At 4,000 miles the idle started to drop to 500 and below. The whole car was shaking and stalled at times. I took it to the dealer six times. They couldn't find the problem and said the car is normal. I contacted Daimler Chrysler. They looked at it once and said the car is normal. I was told by Chrysler it is normal for the cars idle to drop to 500. It isn't normal. Chrysler was no help! I got rid of the car with about 9,000 miles on the car. I had it 11 months and dealt with the problem for 7 months too long! Buyers stay away from this product because their service won't back it up!!!
Some PT Cruisers have a serious defect. The fuel line is right next to the AC pressure fitting. It has rubbed through on some vehicles and sprayed fuel on top of the engine. This is a serious problem. The vehicle could catch on fire and kill the passengers. The proper authorities have all ready been contacted to get a recall. But they are being too slow with it or it has been brushed under the carpet.
