Default I guess there is a reason it was $2100 under Kelly Blue Book

Well when you get a car $2100.00 below book value you know there is a reason. I found ours out today. I took it in for a tune up and to have them check the front end because of a noise. It needed a Valve cover gasket before they could do the tune up and then Plugs, wires, control arm bushings, and tie rod ends and then... a front end alignment. So $764 later our car is good to go. Oh well it's only money, right?

The front end noise is gone and it idles smooth now.

$2100
- 764 = Looks like you are still $1436 ahead of the game. Congratulations on your new PT, and welcome to the Forum!!!

Looks cool, like Hooligan said your still ahead and now hopefully everythings right now. Welcome to the Pt family..Mine just got totaled out last Friday night at around 7 pm after I got out of work, so needless to say I've been looking all week for a different one too. Just haven't found one so far that was as nice as mine was....so I'm still looking. Good luck with the new ride. Like the Inferno Red...

It was between the red, black or blue for us and we found this one loaded with all the options and everything we wanted so red it was.

Hey Howie I see your from Newark Ohio. I'm looking at a PT I found on the computer Sunday. The lady said that she is coming up my way for Easter to the Mid Michigan area from somewhere near the Columbus area she said. Hopefully It's as nice as she says it is and I'll have a new one. ok different one. lol

I seen a black woody the other day. That would be funny if it was the same one. We looked at a blue woody in Columbus that was real nice until you got in it. The guy was a smoker and he did not care to much for his car. There were burn holes all over the leather and no way you would get the smell out. Nothing against smokers but I don't want a car that was a smokers when I'm not especially if they did not take care of it. They one we got was immaculate. Yes we had the few repairs to make but you could still see it was taken car of. I love the woody's but we did just not come accross one we wanted.

Welcome to the forum, and now that you got all the annoying repairs out of the way, it will be easier for you when the mod bug bites.
