CarComplaints.com Notes: Chrysler has taken the boring small car frame of the Neon, grafted a 1930s-era roadster body on top and named it the PT Cruiser. While the new look may appeal to some, the vehicle has unfortunately also inherited many of the same problems as the Neon.

At times, the car doesn't want to start. When I am sitting at a red light, it begins to act like it wants to die. There are times, that I have noticed, when the dash lights are on, that they will fade as if I am losing energy. Have also noticed an odor. The car sounds HORRIBLE when it starts now. There is like a puttering noise coming out from the hood.
