What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For This very distinctive MPV drives like a hatchback. The diesel version is particularly strong

Against It's expensive to service and the rear seats are awkward to move. Depreciation is bad, too.

Verdict It's fun to look at and fun to drive, but lacks the practicality of most of its rivals

Go for… 2.2 CRD Touring

Avoid… 2.0 Touring automatic

Chrysler PT Cruiser MPV
  • 1. Electrical glitches and loose, flimsy plastic trim can plague the interior
  • 2. It can easily cope with five adults and their luggage thanks to a large boot
  • 3. Owners have reported suspension problems, so give any car a good test drive to check all's well
  • 4. Gearboxes are known to give trouble, and repairs can be dear. Again, check it carefully on a test drive
  • 5. 2.2-litre diesel is the best option every time
