Default Good Deal?

Hi, I am looking at this PT for sale near me, see the link Used 2003 CHRYSLER PT CRUISER for Sale In VAUGHAN, ON - 3918951 - autoTRADER.ca
,wondering if it is worth this price? Manual transmission, on advice of most posts here, and in black , low km compared to what I'm driving now... Any advice? Do you think I could offer less?

well that engine only has 7yrs on it seeing that the car itself is nine yrs old. and Kelly blue book says that if she's in excellent condition then she's actually worth $2k more then what they're selling her for. so if you want it i say jump on it. but just keep in mind that the timing belt will need to be changed soon.

surely not! I believe that mileage was in kms. Hopefully you don't need to change the timing belt at 60,000 miles

Looks like a real good deal to me.The car has low mileage for it's age and looks to be in good condition.Dont let the timing belt scare you since you have about 40,000 miles left before it needs changing.

Thanks for the input! I'm going to test drive it today and make my decision. Haven't actually driven manual for almost 15 years, but I'm sure it's like riding a bike!
