PT Cruiser fans, be aware of a cheap shot, hack article on the PT in the Feburay 25 to March 3 edition of Bloomberg's Business Week. Titled "The Last Days of the PT Cruiser". The article unfairly trashes the car by using words such as "dowdy", "dangerous", "uncomfortable", "sluggish" and "suffering" . Some parts of the article are basically factual, primarily the successful sales figures especially in the first generation years, but the bulk of the content was so subjectively negative to be laughable. There was mentioning of a recall for a power steering "fluid" issue implying that the death of two sisters involved in a crash in California in a rental PT was somehow due to some inherent fault in the PT's design. Nowhere were the terms original, unique, versatile, stylish, solid and practical used.

A very unfair portrayal of a very special and unique car. There were 1.4 million PT's sold. Probably one of the most successful single model's that Chrysler has ever produced.
