Default Been fun, but I'm out.

Our 07 PT just got totaled by a hit n runner.
The asshat caused a three car accident. The car is a mess,no injuries.
Looked around for another 05 or newer, but didn't find one as clean as our 07.
I bought a clean 08 ford edge from a family member. It's nice but I'll be on the lookout for that just the pt cruiser I was looking for.
It's out there. Thanks for all your help and advise.🤙🏻

Sorry to hear that.

By any chance did you have full coverage on your 07 PT Cruiser?

I'm very glad that you and yours walked away with no injuries. Sorry about the loss of your PT. Fords can be pretty nice. But hopefully, you will find another PT you like. The 2004 and 2005 GT's have the most options.

Please come by and post every once and awhile and let us know how the search is going.

Most important is that you and your family are okay. Cars can be replaced.

It won't be much longer until Handy_cruiser upgrades to another PT cruiser and you can get his old one

How do you like the Edge? I was thinking about that car for a minute. I never got to try out the MyFord Touch audio system.

What do you think of it? How does it drive compared to the PT cruiser?

We only had liability and under / un insured. The insurance company is still waiting on something besides the police report from the officer handling the wreck. I like the Edge. It's a good solid car. Feels huge compared to the Pt.
Not as nimble as the PT. But not bad. Great highway car. In town milage is about 16 mpg. I like Ford ok. My family raced them for eight years. GM guys hated us. My next PT will have to be new enough to not have an interference engine, as low mileage as I can find. I'm not real picky about options, but I do like cruise control.

that sucks man.

I think i'm gonna put full coverage on my PT because i have a rollpan and hopefully i can get a new custom front bumper that i may end up making myself or look for shops that can make one for me.

I see you live in tyler tx, i'm a bit far in haltom city (ft worth technically). And i was looking at PT's on offer up and craigslist for parts and ended up finding some really nice PT's for sale.

these are the few i found that look the best (i really hope the links work)

If you answered “yes” then parts car is a really good idea.
