Default 2001 PT Cruiser Question

Hey guys! I'm a brand new PT Cruiser owner and I'm pretty psyched about it.
I found a 2001 Cruiser for a super deal and snatched it up.
I've been combing the owner's manual and searching the internet, but I can't figure something out: does this model have the LATCH system for an infant seat? It's the Limited Edition, if that makes any difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I don't believe it does. At least I've never notice them on my 2001 Limited. In my Dodge Ram truck, I use the anchor points at the back of the rear seat cushion to short-leash my pit bull so she doesn't jump into the front seat and lick me to death while driving.

I believe they started mandating these in US vehicles in 2003. I don't know when they started putting them in the PT.

There was a recall right after I bought mine back in Sept 2000 for the child restraint system. I never bothered with the recall.

Recall ID # 7783 - CHILD SEAT
Recall Date NOV 09, 2000
Component CHILD SEAT
Model Affected PT Cruiser
Potential Units Affected 1211756

Recall Date:
NOV 09, 2000
Model Affected:
2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
Summary:

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, PICKUP TRUCKS AND SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FMVSS NO. 225, "CHILD RESTRAINT ANCHORAGE SYSTEMS." SOME OF THE OWNER'S MANUALS FOR THESE VEHICLES ARE MISSING INSTRUCTIONS THAT PROVIDE A STEP-BY-STEP PROCEDURE, INCLUDING DIAGRAMS, FOR PROPERLY ATTACHING A CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEM'S TETHER STRAP TO THE TETHER ANCHORAGE.
Consequences:
IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, THE CHILD SEAT MAY NOT BE PROPERLY ATTACHED INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE CHILD.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER CORPORATION

I just checked my 2001 PT. And yes, there are child seat tie downs in the back seat. But as CREWZIN said, you need to check the recall notice.

Also, I checked the latch system recalls. It appears this issue was with "first batch" 2001 PT Cruisers made in 1999 and 2000 such as CREWZIN's very early PT. It possibly does not affect "second batch" 2001 PT's made in 2001.

Here's a link:
