Default PT Cruiser Petition

PT Cruiser Petition

"It's time to stand up and save our beloved PT Cruiser"

Scott Kissinger from started a Save The PT petition.

No vehicle in recent memory has inspired more automotive enthusiasm than the PT Cruiser. While being completely obtainable to most people - the PT Cruiser awoke in many a passion for a car that they have never experienced.

Now we have reached a cross-roads. After years of neglect on the part of the DaimlerChrysler multi-national, an all-American Chrysler is back and ready to show the world what made them a design leader a decade ago.

In order to save the PT - we need to let Chrysler know the mistake they are making by letting it die.

Sign the petition below (only once per person, please) and we will get your thoughts to Chrysler.

Then send an e-mail to all your PT loving friends so they can sign the petition as well.


Cerberus Capital Management L.P.
Chrysler LLC

To Whom It May Concern:

We, the undersigned, would like to respectfully present the following.

1. The PT Cruiser has done exceptionally well in the marketplace.

a. Sales of the PT in North America, even in the 7th year without major updates are second only to the much newer Chrysler 300, exceeding the sales of even the brand new Sebring.

b. Over the course of the 7 years the PT Cruiser has been on sale, by Chrysler's own admission, sales have totaled well over 1.2 million copies world-wide.

c. Sales have remained strong, even with little investment on the part of Chrysler to provide updates or more than token special editions.

d. The PT Cruiser, in a time when Chrysler is pushing to become a player in markets outside North America, has found success in dozens of countries.

e. The PT Cruiser has generated such incredible enthusiasm from its owners, that numerous national, international, and regional clubs; several aftermarket vendors and customizers; and many web sites have been devoted to the car.

f. Many PT Cruiser buyers were conquest buyers - coming from cars not built by Chrysler or its affiliates.

2. The market is ripe for cars like the PT Cruiser

a. Small cars are making a come-back in a world of ever increasing fuel prices.

b. Previous owners of large utility vehicles are looking for replacements that do not sacrifice utility even in smaller packages.

c. Sales of similarly themed vehicles (Chevrolet HHR, for example) are strong and growing. This signifies that the market for heritage-themed vehicles is strong even among buyers that have not already purchased a PT Cruiser.

We would like to suggest the following.

1. A new PT Cruiser should be built.

2. It should be offered in a retro-themed form similar to what is currently available.

3. Chrysler should, as finances allow, consider building more variants of the PT Cruiser as have been requested by the PT Cruiser community in the past.

4. We, the undersigned, would be interested in buying at least one and would recommend them to family and friends much like we have in the past 7 years.

Respectfully yours,

The Undersigned
