Default First encounter with PT Hater

It happened when I was at my friendís house. His mom just got a Honda Civic so I complimented her new car. I told her I was looking at civics also but decided on a PT.

Then she says Oh yeah my brother had a PT and the transmission blew at 70,000 miles and he will never buy an American made car again, especially that one.

I thought how she said it was kind of rude I mean Iím just telling her about my new car and she has to say that. I felt like saying yeah well my car runs fine and at least I donít see it every turn I take unlike your civic.

So how many PT haters have you all encountered and what do you do when you encounter them?

Everyone has a relative (?) who has/had a auto that something went wrong and then they tell everyone they know that they had a problem. I just let them vent, it sure make them feel better bad mouthing something they know nothing about.

When they get thru, I just get in the PT and drive away, after all they drive a "rice burner" and I drive a "taco burner".

You should've had a PT in the beginning. Lots of haters then. Getting flipped off was not unusual. Ignore them.

My wife took our pt for an oil change. The owners daughter was running the register. She called the car "ptloser" in front of my wife. She even wrote it on the checklist sheet. I was pissed at first but got over it. They went out of business soon after. Karma????

I was at a friends house. A group of us guys were talking and someone asked what I had done to the car lately. My friends brother-in-law asked "what kinda car?" (He's a ricer with a honda) When I told him a cruiser. He said "Those things are ugly. I have never seen one that looked good". Everyone else there started defending me and my car. I just went to the truck, got the laptop out, pulled up my cardomain page and showed him. His jaw dropped and he said " Wow, I recend my previous statement. That thing is bad!"

Your wife is a better person than I am, that's for sure! If someone did that to me, either the verbal OR written insult, it wouldn't even take both to tick me off. Karma's good, but sometimes awfully slow!

Worst I've gotten was an SUV full of jerks, who decided to spend thier time at a stoplight yelling insults about how "ugly" my baby was.... never mind that they were driving an overpriced, gas-guzzling, roadhogging, filthy & dented Hummer (the original REALLY gigantic one).....

Rickie Nelson said it best in a song, when he sang "You can't please everyone, so you've got to please yourself!"

I guess I just do not understand the passionate hatred some people have for this car. I don't like those cube cars but I would never attack someone for having one.

The PT is so cute and I must say the compliments I get for my car far outweighs the negative remarks.
