Default how many miles are on your pt?

hi - I’m very curious to hear how many miles are on your pt cruiser and what MAJOR repair work (if any) has been performed up to this point.[^]

I’ve got 27,500 miles on my '03 gt and had the turbo replaced (under warranty) at 25,000.

03 Turbo 90K

I had the clutch replaced under the recall. I installed the Stage 1. Otherwise, nothing other than oil, filters, wires, plugs.

I'm pretty happy!

03 Turbo 90K
WOW! an '03 @90,000 miles with same turbocharger!?! that's promising news for my '03 gt. my turbo was replaced (under warranty) at 25K. hope this new turbo will last as long as yours is.

do you use 100% synthetic oil? what else are you doing to get that many miles out of your turbocharger?

i'm hoping this pt will last (at least) another 4 years.[8)]

My 03 GT-auto has now 45,000 and as far I did lose the tranny, was replaced by dealer(with stage 1). That was at about 17,000 and I think the one of the reasons they did replace it was the tranny for the frist run of the GT were NG! the other might have been the dealer knew that I would have went some place else if it was not covered!

Yes, I use synthetic oil (Mobil 1) Change it at about 5,000. Nothing else unusual.
