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 to slow with it or it has been brushed under the carpet.
If you own a PT Cruiser be sure you check out this link. http://ptenthusiasts.org/PTForums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=16680

GRAND JUNCTION, COLORADO -- I am very unhappy with the service I received at the Grand Junction Chrysler dealer ship. My mounts broke on my engine the air conditioner quite working the Turbo was plugged. Tried to blame me. I am also over 70 and the service manager is a Jerk. I think it was because I had an extended warranty that the service manager didn't want to honor. Said I didn't keep my oil changed. Guess what I had all my records.
All of the month of July 08 I was in and out of the garage at Chrysler. I wouldn't by another Chrysler product.
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!!!
