#53 of 116 PT Cruiser Price
Dec 19, 2006 (4:08 pm)
Hi, I am looking into a 2006 PT Cruiser Convertible with an MSRP of $21,945. Options include the 28E Package and Automatic Transmission. Standard Black paint.
This is in snowy NE Ohio and an 06, so I am sure that they would love to get rid of this unit.
According to Edmunds' TMV Pricing Report the...
TMV -------------------> $18,230
Chrysler Mailed Rebate-> -$1,000
Chrysler Dealer Rebate-> $3,500
That total amount can't be right..can it?
Somebody please give me some insight asap
#54 of 116 PT Cruiser....used?
Dec 22, 2006 (10:54 pm)
My friend is thinking seriously of buying a used (off lease ex rental) 2006 PT Cruiser w/ 14000 miles on it from a local Chrysler dealer. They are asking $12,900 (a Touring model). What, if anything should we look out for when it comes to ex-rental cars? The car looks pristine. It is equipped with Sirius sattelite radio. What would be a good offer on a car like this? Any opinions or suggestions would be appreciated. I'm a little afraid of used cars, but that's just me.
#55 of 116 PT Cruiser and a Pancake Smell
Jan 08, 2007 (12:28 pm)
I have a 2003 pt cruiser that has had three water pumps replaced since new. Thank goodness under warranty. After the last one was put in, about 5 months later, the car gives off this Pancake Syrup Smell when the heat/ac/defrost is on. Any suggestions.? The car has been checked out twice. No leaks, the last time the dealership told me to pressure wash the exhaust manifold. Doubt that will help.

Sounds like coolant is getting into the heater core probably.
Coolant has kind of a sweet smell to it.

Is there anyway possible to start my car without the factory key I got when I first bought it? I lost my key 2 months ago and am really hoping there's something I can do to the actual car itself to make it start with a copy key I had made before I lost the original. Hope this makes sense. Thanks!

I feel your pain. I lost the keys to my Caliber for almost a month. Being that it was $180 to order a replacement key fob I considered just making a copy but I was told that although the copy would unlock the doors it wouldn't start the car because there is a chip that "unlocks" the engine.
I would imagine your car is similar. I think you may have to grin and bear it and order a new key from the dealer.

The dealer should have delivered 2 original keys to you. Some dealers lose one. Where's your other key? If you never got it, see if you can get it from the dealer. There is no way to start the car without a key with a chip in it, that has been programmed to match your ignition.

I have an 05 PT ... I had a spare key made and it cost me $110. The key must be made in a car shop not a key shop. This is a computer chipped key that is designed that way. If you use that copy key in your ignition, it may turn over the engine, but the engine will stall within a minute. This is a safety feature so your car cannot be stolen. Let your ins. company know, usually you get a discount ... works the same as a car alarm ..

I bought 2 key blanks that both had the chips inside from EBay. Then took them to a hardware store to be cut. Cost around $75 for both.
