Interesting list...

Some ended up being hits with the buying public, others not so much.

Some ended up being considered some of the worst cars ever built as well.

I don’t believe I’ve seen a single Alfa Romeo Giulia on the road. It is a nice looking car though.

Hard to believe the PT Cruiser was considered car of the year material.

Oddly enough tho it ended up being one of those models with a good percentage of repeat buyers...the utility just worked well for some people and oddly still has somewhat of a following to this day.

I have. And there's been one...on and off...on the inside of the local mall (The Woodlands Mall), but it's not too surprising given that there is an Alfa Romeo/Maserati/etc. dealership a few miles from my house.

Sounds like customer satisfaction to me.

Or the fact they work at Chrysler and do not look elsewhere for cars

What many folks don't understand is that MT COTY isn't about the best car available. It's based on a subjective list of 6 criteria that comes down to one important factor - does the car do what it's designers, engineers, and product planners intended?

At the time, the PT Cruiser and the T Bird met those criteria the best, last year the Giulia did, and this year the Genesis G70 does.

When the PT Cruiser was first introduced, it was a sensation that sold at a premium over sticker.
I have no issues with it being COTY.

I know a couple folks who had a PT Cruiser... from what they told me it sounded like a pretty dependable little car.
