Here's some comparable Mopar numbers from ZeroTo60Times.com:

2012 Dodge Caliber SRT4 0-60 mph - 5.7 seconds
2012 Dodge Avenger R/T 0-60 - 6.1 seconds
2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD 0-60 - 6.3 seconds
1993 Dodge Daytona IROC R/T 0-60 - 6.2 seconds

And here's the numbers they have on PT Cruisers:

2001 PT Cruiser (Manual) 0-60 - 8.5 seconds
2001 PT Cruiser (Auto) C0-60 - 8.9 seconds
2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser GT Turbo 0-60 - 7.0 seconds
2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible 0-60 - 7.7 seconds
2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser GT 0-60 - 6.7 seconds

While these number are only good for reference, it does indicate Bolero has one SMOKING non-turbo PT Cruiser if his numbers are accurate.

The reality is while these threads are common on forums seldom are they really worth much except for fun to read more how members acquired the test results then the actual results. Often times what we think is true to the best of our ability getting the information is often not the same when you get handed a time slip at a TRACK showing your run information.
I would guess based on my observation and experience racing the reporting error without good monitoring devices is about between .25 and a full second inaccurate.

What we are speaking of is RT= Reaction Time. BTW .500 is called a perfect RT. I know when I was younger Drag Racing I could do them all day but now these days I am lucky to do a .550:| I dont understand it I get older my cars gets quicker/faster but I personally get slower.....

Using the TorquePro app connected to my OBD2 scanner on my '01 Automatic, the best I've been able to hit was 10.9 seconds. That was also done holding the brake and revving to 2000 RPM before letting go. Not a rocket that's for sure....

Good info^^^ , one thing to think about..I have also found this statement below extremely accurate regarding the Chrysler PT Cruiser A604/41TE ATX.

I'm pretty sure that I can get my 01 LE auto 0 to 60 in 6 miles!

You know this is affected by road conditions, weather, moon phase, stock market, the Cruiser and if I have a beer at the time.

Don't forget your PT's color. A red PT is always going to be faster. That's a proven scientific fact.
