Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Chrysler PT Cruiser estate?

Owners have highlighted suspension and gearbox problems. You should be able to spot any obvious gearbox faults on a test drive, but it may well be worth paying someone who knows what they are looking for to crawl underneath the car and check out the suspension for wear and tear.

Like Chrysler's Neon saloon, electrical glitches and loose, flimsy plastic trim can plague the interior. Air bag faults can prove tricky to rectify, but overall the PT Cruiser has a reasonable reliability record.
