Default What kind of pt

This may seem like a stupid question, but, how do I tell what kind of pt I just bought? The only badging is pt cruiser. Its got a 2.4 with a manual tranny, pwer wind, and thats about it. The bumpers are color matched to the body. Anybody care to enlighten me? Thanks for any help

Your model is most likely a "base" model, and if it is a 2003 model with body colored bumpers it would have been manufactured late in the 2003 model year. 2003 models above the "base" series had body colored bumpers. Some owners of 2001-2003 models had the bumpers repainted with the body color. All 2004 and newer models have bumpers the same color as the body.

The series designations are found on the rear hatch. "Base" models have no designation. Moving up the line there are these designations: Touring Edition, Limited Edition, GT.

It have A/C? If not, definitely the base model. All PTs above base came with A/C in '05 on...

What exactly are you trying to find out?

If it doesn't say TURBO, LIMITED EDITION, or TOURING EDITION you just have a regular PT.

If you want to know more about your PT, the VIN number tells it all...

also there is a place on the door hinge, that tells you when the car was built

Exclamation Re: What kind of pt

Go to the Chrysler site and enter your VIN in the recall section, the result usually tells you if it's a Touring or Limited, if either of thos words are missing, it's a base model.
