Trading In
« on: July 25, 2010, 10:59:21 AM »
Last weekend we were in Oklahoma City,I rented a 2010 Chevrolet HHR,before I rented that I was thinking about trading in my 15 mpg F-150 and getting a PT Cruiser. Now I am sort of torn.

My question is in everyone opinion which is better.


Thanks,
Chris

From what I have read the PT Cruiser has really gone down hill after about '05 or '06.  I think the last PT Cruiser rolled off the assembly line in early June, and so quite a few conversations (and web info) has come up about it. 

From the few owner's sites and some conversations at work that I've been privy to, after '06 the feel, look, and construction of the PT Cruiser has really become "cheap." 

But, in the end, only you know what's best for you and your family.  Do your homework, and best of luck! 
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about??

Unless I'm mistaken the same guy who designed the original PT was then hired by GM and designed the HHR.  I would probably go with the HHR but that's me.

I was impressed with the HHR and it 25 mpg,that is what I averaged last weekend. I like the looks of the PT. I just need something more fuel efficent then the F-150 I have and need more room.

If I had to pick one, I'd have to go with the HHR. I deal with both all of the time, and all around I think the Chevy HHR is a much better vehicle than the PT Cruiser.

I ended up getting a great deal on a 2004 PT Cruiser with less then 70K miles.

You shouldn't be disappointed.  My sister had one to drive back and forth to college.  She bought it new and put 80K on it without any problems.  My mom currently has the convertible turbo charged model, and she bought it new a few years ago.  She hasn't had any trouble from her's either; other than a deer tried to pick a fight with it once.

A co-worker of mine just got a 2003 with 70,000 miles on it and it runs awesome. Good luck with your PT as well
