Notes: The 2006 is the worst year for PT Cruiser engine complaints. Having an engine light on is annoying, but it's the complaints about the engine shutting-off while driving that really have us concerned.

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 35,700 miles
Stress crack in windshield. Begans below the seal, middle of windshield. Chrysler states that at 35,000 miles my car is not under warranty. Service men took pictures and said I might get a merit on warranty. Glass is only covered for 12,00 miles. Though the service men did say that it was indeed a stress crack, no signs of impact. I know nothing has hit my windshield, or I would have taken this up with csaa. This is a safety issue. Chrysler had to recall 2006 quarter panels due to this as well. I have a 2006 limited.
