Chrysler drops the price on this uniquely hot-rod-styled wagon for 2005, which makes it a better value than before. A two-door four-seat convertible version of this versatile hot-rod-retro wagon debuted in 2004 as an early-2005 model. While the vehicle's trademark flexible seating remains, it's useful as a cargo carrier only with the top down. A small rear cargo door can accommodate long, flat objects with the seats folded flat, however. A 2.4-liter 180-horsepower turbocharged engine option was added to the line in 2004. Otherwise a naturally aspirated 220-horsepower version of that powerplant comes standard, while a higher-output 200-horsepower turbo drives the front wheels in the top GT model. Either of the three engines can be mated to a standard five-speed manual or optional four-speed Autostick automatic transmission. Optional equipment includes such high-tech features as a Sirius satellite radio receiver, a satellite navigation system and a hands-free interface for "Bluetooth" enabled cellular telephones. A limited-production PT Dream Cruiser convertible is added for 2005 that comes with the turbocharged engine and is painted in Deep Lava Red paint with a maroon cloth top, chrome grille accents, and 17-inch Satin Silver-painted 15-spoke wheels.

As the PT Cruiser drops its top, will sales go up?

Has been remarkably trouble free in 5yrs of ownership. Wish it got better gas mileage for its size.
