Default Passenger Seat Belt Chime

Someone on Allpar posted this question and nobody seems to know the answer. Anyone here know?

In most late model cars, if there is a person in the passenger seat, the warning chime will alert non-stop until the belt is fastened.

What year did the PT Cruiser get this feature? We are dealing with an accident from March where this information may become critical.

You can view this thread on alarms:

What is this alarm trying to tell me?

The seat belt chime is just a friendly reminder to buckle the belt. What would be more important in an accident is what did the event data recorder record as it can detect if the seat belts were buckled or not. Of course, that still doesn't tell you if someone was actually using the seat belt as I have seen people buckle the belt and then sit on top of it, just to try to defeat having to actually use the belt for its intended purpose, a safety device.
