No. I guess not!

Nitro, I respect that you have a huge understanding of things automotive and clearly care and do things right by your clients mate I'm a professional too, I work and have national certifications in fitness, sports and nutritional medicine.

When someone comes to you as a trainer, nutritionist or any healthcare practitioner, they are vulnerable. Financially, emotionally and in my case, physically. Same when you go to any professional. As shocking as it sounds, people can, and do, take advantage in that situation. It's just so easy. In all my years of experience I have seen this not once or twice, but hundreds of times, to be true.

It's easy to take advantage, because they don't know anything about their body, or car, or computer, or the property market. So they won't question the decisions or guidance of your professional. And they trust you, they believe you, they want your help and are going out on a limb with you. If you're an elderly gentleman with shoulder pain, and a goose tells you to do something which we've all been taught will Cause Shoulder Injury, that is inexcusable incompetence. Or carelessness. Maybe both? When an overweight gentleman with ankle pain is told to do 100 star jumps and 5 minutes on the skipping rope, no wonder it hurts more afterwards. But he believes you and keeps going. Amazing how much power we can have over people.

I want measurable, tangible, long term health benefits in my clients. I tell them exactly Why I'm doing something. This empowers them and makes them feel a part of the process, not a bystander. It informs them to be able to make decisions on their health in the future.

I have no doubt that you are fantastic Nitro, but that being true I don't see how it offends you personally. I don't feel the actions of my peers reflect on me. In fact, it pushes me to do better Plenty of dealerships do exactly what I said they do. Equally, there are the good guys (like the ones I went to, and like you and your teams). Call me a cynical bastard, but it has paid off for me so far, hahaha

With that being said I agree with much of what you posted you made some very good points about DIYing, Eric, talking to the technician, finding someone qualified, etc

I'm trying to find out if parts are interchangeable between 2004 and 2006 Cruisers. One needs a new module ($1200 with labor) the other may need a new transmission - also extremely expensive. Other than that we've been very lucky with our cars. Just love them.

I would suggest finding out the information you need with the VIN # from both PT Cruisers at the dealer.

The 2004 is a first generation and the 2006 PT Cruiser is a second generation but you need to confirm the manufacturing date on the driver's side door on the 2006 PT Cruiser.
