Default pt cruiser 2010-2016 repair list

Hi all,

I have a 2010, ~60k miles, and tried to keep track of most of the repair work done since i got it. I figure this might be interesting to some, and i'd like to compare my experience to others. I had an extended warranty which ended up paying off. Bushings and rotors tend to only last me about two years or so, which surprises me, but it might be the Canadian winter climate.. maybe?

pt cruiser 2010-end of 2016

Satellite radio replaced, driver window button module, power driver seat module replaced, tie rod links, bushings (lower control arm, front table, engine mount, about every two years). one wheel bearing, rotors (about every 2 years), oil pan sweat, power steering sweat, leaky PCV valve, replaced shifter shaft (became hard to shift due to rust), back passenger caliper, replaced handbrake shoe, condenser o-ring for the A/C due to leak, leaky radiator replaced, radiator fan motor replaced, voluntarily changed timing belt water pump and all drive belts, two battery changes.

2005 129,000+ miles
Front brake caliper replaced (it stuck)
2 ABS wheel sensors (2 different times)
tie rods
replaced timing belt, water pump, etc, at around 90,000 miles, had auto trans flushed at 50,000 and 90,000 miles.
Change oil w/Mobil 1 every 5,000 miles - use no oil.

Edit- Also had wiring harness repaired due to some %&@# rodent gnawing on the wires....

Yes, they last longer but they make everything a little stiffer because there's less give than the rubber bushings.
