No one buys these cars, they are inflicted on you by relative, misfortune or act of God.
  1. Inherited from grandmother or aunt
    This seems to be the case at least 50% of the time.
  2. A parent or grandparent bought it for you as your first car because they were fooled by the old timey vibe
    Make no mistake, you should still be grateful.
  3. You won the Showcase Showdown on the Price is Right
    There are at least a thousand in circulation for this reason.
  4. You think it's funny/ironic
    You enjoy the laugh and nicknames like PT Pooper, Past Transgressions Cruiser and PT Loser.
  5. You went to a used car lot trying to buy a car that's been discontinued and were tricked into getting one of these instead
    If you walk on the lot asking for a Saturn or a Geo Tracker or maybe an Aztek you're going home with a Cruiser every time.
  6. You have extreme cupholding needs
    Seriously these things have like 20 cup holders.
