Default I want to join the club

Hi, my name is Dave and I would love to join the PT Cruiser club.

My last car's gearbox has just fell out so, I'm in the market for another used car.

I thought this would be an opportunity to get myself a PT.

One has come up for sale in my local area and just wanted to get your opinions as it does seem to have some problems.

PT Cruiser 2001 in Blandford, Bournemouth | Used Chrysler for sale | Gumtree.com

Notice the overheating, does this sound like an expensive job, is it a common problem with PT's

Thanks
Dave

We in the states don't have that engine. But if there are any similarities I would say it is a radiator fan issue. There Is the timing belt and water-pump that needs changing around 100k miles. Check the front control arm bushings(behind the front wheel). Also the tork struts (motor mounts).

I clicked on and saw the add and a list of others available there. No alerts of an kind for me.

Welcome.

Heating issues is a "hot" topic lately. If you surf the forum you will find lots of resent (even today) and old information about it.
Just Just about every question has been asked and answered.

I think personally the miles are too high for the price and given the issues I would walk away.

I used gumtree to find my car and travelled a fair distance to get it, but worth it considering the price. 1 tank of petrol was all that was needed.

You can get lower mileage for that price and ones with no issues.

pt cruser very clean p/x welcome in Sunderland | Used Chrysler for sale | Gumtree.com

Plus with this one you would be on the lower car tax.

I agree with Whiteclaw, also like the silver better and I don't see the tape prints on the bumper covers like you do on that other PT. Add to it, that other one is just about in need of replacing the main belt and water pump, this one isn't. Looks in much better shape.

Now for some of us PT Phreaks, PT Cruiser is not just a car, it's a way of life!!!
