The Chrysler PT Cruiser (PT standing for "Personal Transport") is a retro styled compact car launched by Chrysler as a 5-door hatchback in early 2000 and as a 2-door convertible in early 2004. Originally conceived as a Plymouth model, the PT Cruiser received the Chrysler nameplate on introduction in anticipation of the 2001 discontinuation of the Plymouth brand. A 4-seat convertible model was added for 2005. It is a 2-door convertible with an integrated "sport bar" for added rigidity and rollover protection. The sport bar also caused air to flow over the rear seat passengers. Convertible production ended December 21, 2007, but the last 2007 convertibles were marketed as 2008 models. On January 12, 2009, Chrysler LLC, under the private equity firm of Cerberus Capital Management, announced the gradual discontinuation of the main model. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Chrysler repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Chrysler PT repair manual makes the ideal companion when you’re undertaking maintenance or repairs on your car.
