Default Does 2006 PT Cruiser have non-interference engine? (Timing Belt Broke)

I've been getting conflicting information on this. Some sites and mechanics
say that when the timing belt breaks on PT's, the engine gets damaged
because the valves can make contact with each other. But apparently later
models PT's don't have that kind of engine. Is the 2006 model a non-
interference or interference engine? It's a non turbo 4 door. I don't think it's
a touring edition or special model. Just a regular PT.

All PT's are non-interference. The only way the valves might touch is if the belt broke while you were doing 80 MPH. 99.9% of all engines are fine after belt breaks.

Mine broke while doing 70 mph. No other damage other than broken belt.
