      The new bug was a good girls car but shared nothing about the cost that made the original so popular

    The PT Cruiser, fugly as it was, was actually a very nice little Neon replacement with some serious utility. Never liked the driver's seating position, though - it felt raked forward, no matter what, which was...weird.

          Maybe the writer of the article I read had false information, but that hungarian article said Americans love the PT cruiser much more than everything else. I would call this success.

                Why do people call the Pt Cruiser most hated, how is that even possible have you seen how many were produced and sold! It's an awesome vehicle but I guess everyone has an opinion.

                      Shout out to the Hawai'i State Patrol, which seems to have a ton of Mustang 5.0 SHO racers for flagging down speeders.

                        When the Dodge Challenger showed up, my jaw dropped and I could't stop staring. It looks like it rolled into the showroom in 1969. Best of all, it is powered by engines that put the "Muscle" in "Muscle Car."

                                    I don't think the prowler was far off though, I think the issue with it is that it stinks of budget cuts. Bigger engine and more costly panels and you have a modern/retro classic.

                                            I had a VR6 GLX markIII Jetta in 1998. I switched to a new beetle and loved the lifestyle of driving a retro fun car. Now I'm on my third beetle and I'm a very happy driver. Just recently got a 2019 beetle when they announced the end of beetles, for now.

                                                        People keep harkin' on about how the Challenger is 'so big" Looking at it side by side with what all these haters seem to be jakin' off to it really isn't that much of a size difference as opposed to entirely different design philosophy. Especially when you consider most people aren't even diving the absolute latest most trimmed down version of the Mustang, Camar or what have you, most of these clowns seriously need to find something better to be than internet arguing over spec sheets of vehicles they don't have nor are ponying up to buy any time soon if ever.

                                                          How is the new beetle good design or in any way a success??? Even a pt cruser is less borring and more successful retro redesign.

The Cruiser was a sensation and flew off dealer lots even when thousands of dollars were added because of the demand. The vehicle was projected to sell 30,000 a year. Over it's 10 year run it averaged over 130,000 annually. By ALL standards it was a success.

But after more than 15 year the overall quality is still good,, the car industry produces crossovers.... What was a pt? A van? A wagon? A family car?
