Default thought about trading it in

Thought about trading in the PT for a Mopar 11, those leftover at the dealerships are getting cheaper, so I checked one out, but couldn't part with my PT inorder to do it, thus ended up walking away from the deal. Anyway, here's a video of a Mopar 11.

Great looking car and nice features (except the wheels). I'm not a big fan of the blacked out new trend in stealth wheels. Chrome or silver or the gloss black with chrome trim is more my style.

Also black isn't a great color here in Florida or any of the southern states unless you plan on keeping in the shade all the time. Probably don't have a sun/heat problem in Canada though.

Did they say what they would give in trade-in for your PT?

I must admit i love the new charger. That 3.6 engine looks great on paper. If I were living in florida i think thats what I'd have. Well one of the cars I'd have anyway. Would love a new challenger and pick up as well!

I'm with Crewzin on this. Nice looking automobile - wheels make it look shoddy, in my opinion. The black stealth wheels remind me of the white spoke wheels that were popular a few years ago - they looked good on some vehicles, like 4WD trucks and Jeeps, but didn't go with much of anything else. That's kind of the way I feel about some of the wheels I see these days. That's my opinion.

Black rims are an issue here in the Winter due to the effects of salt, it makes everything grungy and it's hard to clean, but Winter rims and tires would take care of that. For trade-in they offered $5,000 for it, think they really wanted to sell the other car that's why.

You'd be the 'cop-magnet' of the county!
(Girl magnet, too, dunno why those two seem to go together)

It was 40 something but with my trade-in and other Chrysler incentives could have got it for 30 something.

For that money over here you could get a new ford mondeo or a volvo! With a diesel engine of course. How lucky we are! If I had the money I'd import a new(ish) charger to the UK with the 3.6 pentastar engine and use it as a daily driver. Still keep the pt though

Don't want to give up my pt to do it either, would've been nice to have both.
