Default I need a 2nd car

I'm in the market for a 2nd car and have settled on PT Cruiser.

Here is what I'm looking for:
My budget is $3000 max but prefer to stay below that number if possible.
The car needs to have an automatic transmission. My wife doesn't drive a stick.
I live in Southwest Florida and want a car within a 3 hour drive from Sarasota.

If you or some you know has one for sale, please let me know

Welcome to the forum

You might start a introduction thread as the forums guidelines when you joined recommended ?
And it is only polite thing to do before you start asking for help!

Welcome to the forum

This website has selectable features to narrow down your search:

They currently have 110 vehicle choices (with automatic trans) within 150 miles of zip code 34230, one of the many zip codes for Sarasota.

You might want to do some research on what year of PT you want and the differences between the Gen1 and Gen2. The first generation PT's are from 2001-2005, and the second generation is 2006-2010. There are not only differences in the exterior and interior styling of each, but the most notable difference in the Gen2 is the CANbus electrical system.

Drive up to Lake Wales. Damn near every car lot around here has one or two. I don't know about prices or anything, because I'm not in the market. I have no money to spare.

With a $3000 budget you are probably gonna be able to get a nice PT for that price, maybe even a turbo model if you want the power. I spent $4200 on a GT with 78k miles, so finding a 05 limited with 100k miles and a new timing belt, should be right where you're asking or a little bit less.

timing belt should be changed at 105k miles, so ask, if they don't know, it wasn't done. Limited is the highest non turbo model, the GT was technically higher, but came with the turbo and extra cost. If you work on your own car, I would recommend a 1st Gen, if you just take it to a mechanic, get a Gen2 and the addition options are nicer, such as TPMS, but the Gen1 has the original styling interior the PT was going for.
