Chrysler Pt Cruiser Owner's Manuals
Anti-lock disc brakes, side airbags on the front seats and a low-speed traction control system are standard on the 2010 PT Cruiser. This model received the highest rating of “Good” for frontal crash protection, but the lowest rating of “Poor” for side impacts from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Since the previous turbocharged engine was no longer available, the 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser was left with a basic powertrain and an outdated four-speed automatic transmission. The suspension perfectly absorbs bumps and “obstacles” in the road, providing a smooth and relaxed ride.
The retro themes evident in the 2010 PT Cruiser’s exterior are also reflected in its interior, especially in the thin-spoke steering wheel and vintage round gearshift knob. The cabin is quite spacious, with plenty of room for taller passengers. However, lower drivers may find the flat seats and elevated seating position a little uncomfortable.
Those seated in the rear have a pleasant view thanks to the Cruiser’s slightly raised rear seats, and there’s plenty of head and legroom for adult passengers. The rear seats, which fold down in a 65/35 ratio, can be folded forward, but not horizontally, to increase cargo space. These seats are removable, and in this configuration they provide 63 cubic feet of storage space.
