Shopping at the Car Lot

Tomorrow I will go to compare and contrast the Chevrolet HHR and Chrysler PT Cruiser. I've heard good and bad about each.

I will go to the Chevrolet dealership that actually answered my email about a quote, the one that only asked when I thought I might be coming by for a look and test drive so they could have a car ready and waiting for me.

I will not go to the Chrysler dealership that did not send me the quote I requested, the one that sent me a slightly snotty reply to my second request for a price quote. The one that only seemed interested in getting me to the lot with no information.

There are other Chrysler dealerships in town, don't they know.

But alas, today I am without a vehicle, stuck at home with a marauding raccoon, a discontented (and very loud) Thor, a mountain of laundry and a blank screen on my computer, waiting for me to fill it with words of brilliance.

Great Leaping Thorby, Batman!

Janet, My mom has had a PT Cruiser for a few years and loves it. It drives great, and is apparently a very safe vehicle. Just a little FYI. Not to mention it looks pretty cool. ;-) Happy car hunting!

Hi Janet,

I had a PT Cruiser for 3 years and it was the WORST car I have ever driven. I had the transmission go out twice within 6 months, and the thermostat was perpetually a problem as well - unless you really like having your entire dash panel light up in front of out-of-town guests.

I had a lemon of a PT Cruiser - be warned.

Great, in my research I've gotten several "love it" reports on both the Cruiser and the HHR. I've also gotten one "hate it" from owners of each.

I suppose it all balances out in the end.
