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.

My 2001chrysler PT CRUISER dash cracked in half for no apparent reason. It caused many electrical errors in the dashboard instruments. I am just thankful I was not in a more serious situation when it happened. I have heard it is common and feel it should be addressed.
