A little imagination goes a long way. Saying it's fast, every imaginable option that was available plus the exaggerated mileage, no mention of how many miles it has or even the year it was made. Not a well thought out ad.

sometimes i leave out year and mileage. when you search craigslist do you type "2001 pt cruiser", or just "pt cruiser"? he will get more calls and questions like that. it is pretty crappy to blatantly lie about the mpg. he also posted a picture of a sub that is different from those in the car.

Yes, your right, for a search, "pt cruiser" will do but at least the ad itself should tell you what year it is and what kind of mileage it has. Lets face it, most of us know that if a used PT has 98,000 miles on it and the timing belt hasn't been done, there's a $1000 that has to be put out by the new owner right away. If it's a second generation PT, you may get away without the mileage and be pretty sure the timing belt isn't due right away ...most of the time, but most buyers want to know that kind of information.

Very creative writing, geared towards the young car buyer who was sold on the sound system. I'm extremely cranky and cynical when buying a car, the ad just would piss me off.

My Pt gets the mileage of a Prius and is fast as a funny car in the quarter mile. My PT doesn't run on gas in runs on Chuck Noris's urine .
