: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

Overview

Last year the flames were on the outside of the PT Cruiser. For 2003, there's more fire under the hood. The Chrysler PT Cruiser gets its first power upgrade since it was introduced early in 2000. Instead of just bolting on a turbocharger, however, Chrysler engineers thoroughly redesigned the 2.4-liter four cylinder, boosting the output to 215 horsepower, a 65-hp gain. The 2003 PT Turbo gets significant handling upgrades to go with its more powerful engine. The end result is the hot rod many wanted when the Cruiser was first introduced. Though it has become a familiar sight, the Cruiser still attracts attention. We don't recommend you buy a PT Cruiser if you like anonymity. People from all walks and stations want a better look, intrigued by the Cruiser's difficult-to-define character. It is, as Chrysler says, too cool to categorize. The two strongest virtues of the Cruiser are its practicality and its affordable price. These two virtues make the PT Cruiser suitable for everyday use. It offers the interior volume of a sport-utility vehicle, yet it's shorter than many compact cars. Now with the optional turbocharged engine, it's as much fun to drive as a sport sedan.
