Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Vehicle shimmies...goes smooth...shimmies...smooth at about 5 second intervals while traveling at highway speed. Does this weather coasting or not.
Warped rotors usually causes this due to excessive braking. Could be bad belt in tire also, or possibly a bent or cracked rim.

This One is One Of Two Things
1. Change The Rear Brakes!!!!!! Thats Right When Your Rear Brakes Are Worn You Go Through
Front Brakes Like Crazy As They Are The Only Way Your Car Can Really Stop.
2. Check The Brake Master Cylinder If Its Off It Will Make Your Front Brakes Do All The Work.

Check the control arm bushings, they are common to wear out and have known some cases where they needed to be changed at 20,000KM, mine. Must of been a bad supply that year, other then that check the common things like the idler arm, tie rod ends and engine mounts.
Not sure how many miles on your PT but I found some seam to be built better then others. I had a PT turbo and it was in the shop more times then the good driving weather here in Canada.
Good luck and hope this helps and I hope it's not the transmission slipping from 1st to 2nd if it's an auto.

if you are getting a shimmy in the wheel this is a good indication that your front brake rotors are warped and upon replacement the lug nuts should be torqued to 100 ft lbs or they might warp again,also the rear brakes should be checked for correct operation to make sure all the stopping force is not left for the front brakes to handle all by themselves,hope this helps

Start with a tire inspection, then have them balanced and rotated.
You could have worn tie rod ends as well. Most places provide a free front end inspections, but make them show you if parts are loose. If they won't show you go somewhere else.
