Final Edition PT Cruiser is still terrible.

Posted in Chrysler, Economy Cars, FAIL, General by MrAngry | July 13th, 2010 | 4 Responses |

Why is it that manufacturers feel the need to use a cheesy dress-up strategy in order to sell a car. What you are seeing here is the final edition of Chrysler’s PT Cruiser, a car that should have been phased out more than 5 years ago. When it first came out 11 years ago it was a funky little alternative to an economy car, now it’s just a sad little box with bad make-up. Here’s a tip, how about when phasing a car out you do it by building something really special, like Buick did with the GNX in the late 80’s when the Grand National was being phased out. What really pains me is watching Jose Angeles, the Program Manager for the PT Cruiser trying to not only convince us that this is a great car, but convince himself as well. Do us all a favor and just shoot this thing and be done with it.

    Do they really have that guy representing new product lines at Chrysler?

    No wonder their time is limited and demise is near.

    That was by far the worst presentation of a vehicle I have ever seen.I would buy a used Pinto before buying that thing. When you have to say things like how the red, black and grey work with each othe you know you have a problem. Puke.

    Ok, first and foremost, if you’re going to have someone talk about your product, please ensure that they have total and complete mastery of the language. Listening to that guy, all I could really concentrate on were his gramatical errors and trying to understand what it was he ws trying to get across. I couldn’t spend any time looking at or thinking about the car itself.

    Second, if I understand this right, there final edition car comes with paint, wheels, seats, floormats, and a shifter. Man, they really stretched themselves on this one.
