Default Traction Control on PT Cruiser


Can someone tell what year did Chrysler offer traction control on the PT Cruiser?

I don't have it but my 2001 Owner Manual talks about it so I believe it was offered from the very beginning of the production run in 2000 for the 2001 models.

Skimming through my archive of brochures it would seem that Traction Control was standard equipment on the GT models, and optional on Touring & Limited models with ABS and 4-wheel discs.

My 2003 Touring with front discs/rear drums has neither ABS or Traction Control.

My Wife's 2004 Limited with front discs/rear drums has ABS only.

The 2005 GT Convertible and 2010 Classic both have standard 4 wheel discs with ABS and Traction Control.

It was definitely available from the beginning because I have it on mine.

My '01 Touring Edition has it. The only way to get 4 wheel disc brakes was to also get abs/traction control. The t/c only works below 30-40mph, I don't remember exactly.
