Default Intro myself & my lil zippy cruiser

Hi to all,
My name is Franki. I just yesterday purchased but not picked up my sweet lil gem. It's an 2007 GT. I have been reading on this site before the purchase. You guys are great. You have made me want to roll up my sleeves and learn how to work on my car. That remains to be seen though. BTW can't find any info on my model. It says PT Cruiser turbo and under that is an emblem special edition on left , on right it says LX under that X'treme. By the door handle is an emblem limited edition. It has the chrome package on it. It's a sweet, fun lil zipster that hubby is as excited about as I am. And seeing that he is a 1 ton and bigger rig truck guy that's impressive. Looking forward to reading / posting and learning.

Sounds like someone before you put some extra emblems on your cruiser. "Special Edition", "LX" and "X-Treme" aren't the normal emblems.

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

The "LX" came out in 2008-2010. I wonder if it's really a "GT".
If you can post some pics of the engine & rear hatch it should help.

Hi,

Thanks for the posts. When I pick up our pt , if I can figure out how to post pics, I sure will. The vin does show it as GT, it has 17" wheels, inside fuel door says premium suggested, and is very zip zip . Can't wait to get it. Should be in next few days

Use this website to get the build sheet for your PT:

then in the middle of the page in the white box enter your vehicle VIN

then Search

SOOO BIG and I welcome you to the Forum. SOOO BIG wants to see some photos. Have fun with your "new" "zippy" PT.

As rickstein suggested when you get your build sheet it'll tell you everything that was put on your PT at the factory. With a similarly acquired build sheet I discovered SOOO BIG has a SDCS touring suspension explaining his fine handling characteristics. No biggy I'm sure, but he's a happy boy.
Happy Ptin', ptprice
