|PT Cruiser 300,000 miles|
We previously racked up miles in our Ford Windstar. It hit 329,000 on the original engine before it just gave out. In a 48 hour period the ABS system sensor went bad, the electric window stopped working, we lost the air conditioning condenser and something went badly wrong with the radiator. That's when we hit the dealership.
I looked at a PT Cruiser but discarded the thought in favor of a Ford Focus. Dumb move. The car was totaled after 7 payments. We took another look at the PT Cruiser, drove it again and brought it home. She's been mine ever since.

And go, she has!
We've been to Knoxville, D.C., Chattanooga, Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, Pigeon Forge, Meridian and recently to Gulf Shores.
It's also my daily driver for work and errands. What kind of gas mileage does my PT Cruiser get? I thought that you'd never ask. How about 22-24 around town and up to 35 on I-75? That's with the new engine.
I love the car. Family is usually comfortable in it and even the dog likes riding in it. For me, that's good enough.
My PT Cruiser is here to stay for as long as possible. I'm not ruling out 500,000 miles someday. Are you?
