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.

problem #1

Aug 022005

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Consumer owned three 2001 Chrysler PT CRUISER. Each of the vehicles had problems with the fog lights and turn signal light switch, which was replaced free of charge when one vehicle was out of warranty and the fog lights and headlights stayed on and would not go off. The second and third cruisers fog lights would not go off, consume R removed the fuse. There was a flaw in the design of the PT CRUISER headlight switch, which would run down the battery. The switch should be replaced at no charge to the consumer. Also, there should a be a redesigned switch, and a full recall/replacement after the switch was redesigned. In order to have two PT CRUISER pass va state inspection consumer removed fog lights bulbs, socket and wiring.
