I got one in the mail offering me $6500 when I/if i traded my PT in for a new Chrarger SRT (or was it a challenger). Of course the Charger would be full list price and no incentives.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

If I ever sell my PT, I'll just show them all my posts here on the forum.

I get offers like that all the time from my dealership and it's usually after I have my PT serviced.

A lot of their offers say that they can put me into a newer vehicle for the same or less payment than my PT.

Well with my PT I have no payment, so I would like to see them put me into a newer vehicle for no payment, ain't gonna happen!

I still have full coverage insurance on mine and I have tried to get a valuation out of my insurance company what they would give me if I were to total my PT. They refuse to give out a number unless I want to file a claim.

I have used several websites to get a vehicle valuation:

NADA - Clean Retail $3000
Kelley Blue Book - Excellent Condition Private Party $2935

But I like the website DriverSide as they give me the Black Book, which is what most dealers use:

This is the best value for my PT:


This is probably a more realistic figure:


To me, I estimate that my PT is worth around $6000-$7000 as it has never been in an accident, all body panels are clean and straight (no door dings), paint in excellent condition, interior in excellent condition and everything works!

But if your vehicle is ever totaled, have all the information that you can to negotiate that final settlement price with your insurance company.

I've actually done that, TWICE! I also tell folks to put the name of some car part and "PT Cruiser" into Google. Chances are, a photo of one my cars will eventually show up. My cars are "famous" online.

Photo's #3 and #6 alternator:

https://www.google.com/search?q=pt+c...w=1920&bih=903

Photo's #10, 11 and 22 for Stage 1:

https://www.google.com/search?safe=a...k1.BZCDAzvSJic

Photo's #4, 5 15, 20 and a bunch more for Strut Bar. If you see double strut bars on a PT online, chances are it's mine:

https://www.google.com/search?safe=a....0.Mn584CRpLYE

And we can keep playing this one all day.

PS: CREWZIN beats everyone in this game. If PT Cruiser is in the search box, I photo of his car will usually show no matter what.

Todd, your car looks just like an alternator.

Yea, we're all that way. Search for "pt cruiser nitrous" or "pt cruiser chrome engine" and mine shows up all over the place.

Yep. You win hands down on this game. And I don't count the adds at the top. My alternator is the nasty one on the red PT. I did that in really bad cold weather.

I came across this the other day while searching for something:



This used to belong to Danny7627.

He should have been collecting royalties from the company using his car for advertising for their wheels
