I have had my Chrysler PT CRUISER in the shop for the same steering column noise 4 times. In 2 times they have scratched my steering wheel twice. They replaced the steering wheel already once. I took the car back in on Friday April 22 and I received the car back tonight. I saw 2 scratches on the steering wheel again I immediately took the car back to the dealership to have the service rep look at the steering wheel. I'm not happy that I have to keep bringing the car back in for the same thing, I would like to register the pt under the lemon law.
