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.

While driving in heavy rain, my windshield wipers stopped working in the middle of a wipe cycle. I could not see because ofthe heavy downpour and had to slow down to a crawl and try to get on the side of the road. After pulling over, the wipers started working again. Once back on the road, they stopped again. This happened a total of 3 times until I could get to an exit.
