Default Hey Ya'll from Mt. Dora, Florida

Bought our 1st PT Cruiser in 2001 when they 1st came out & enjoyed it immensely for about a year. Sold it because we needed something a bit bigger. Will say I was disappointed in the fuel mileage for a small car (16 mpg-Heavy Foot Syndrome) but always wanted another one. Found a 2002 automatic w/around 100,000 miles in the plum crazy color I had always wanted. My wonderful wife bought it for my 40th Anniversary present. Good Wife! Had it about 4 months now & very happy for most part. I must say my foot must have gotten lighter or we had a bad one the 1st time because I am getting 20-24 mpg on this one. Pleasant surprise. Thanks for including me in this forum.

PS now to go find out why our new to us PT's front end Bucks like a wild Mustang every time we hit the brakes hard. B

Welcome to the forum. I have no idea where Mt.Dora is, but it really doesn't matter. I'm not coming to visit and will be getting the hell out of FL as soon as I can. Great looking Plum PT, though!

As I mentioned, I'm up the road from Mount Dora. The guy was asking for some brake advise.
