I don't like it.
The PT Cruiser came out 5 to 10 years ago when the retro look in cars was all the rage. it was designed to look like the wagons of the thirties and forties. Many people hated the look, but I thought it was cool. For some reason I've always been partial to the boxy look in a car. I hoped that at some point I would get to drive one.
Today, I got my wish. My rental car on the current business trip is a PT Cruiser. And it drives terribly.
The acceleration doesn't feel quite right. More importantly, the steering on this car is terrible. The thing cannot make a tight turn. I think the Ford Explorer makes tighter turns than the PT Cruiser. I'm amazed at how much pavement it takes this car to simply go left.
There are very few cars I actually dislike on the rental aisle. They include the Ford Taurus, the Kia Optima, and now the PT Cruiser.
It looks cool, but simply doesn't drive well, which defeats the purpose of having it.
Next time, just give me the Hyundai.
