I will attempt to represent my PT Cruiser to the best of my ability. This car has some mechanical and cosmetic defects and needs servicing, but is still in good running condition. However, the antilock breaking system is not functioning because I believe a wheel speed sensor has failed. The paint, body and interior may need professional servicing if you are not a do-it yourself, mechanically inclined person. The tires match and have about 50% or more of tread. As far as I know, this car is free of major mechanical problems but will need some reconditioning. Its paint and bodywork will require minor and major touch-ups, with repairable cosmetic defects. It's engine compartment may have minor leaks but nothing I am aware of. There are body scratches, dings and minor interior blemishes. The car has Zenon front and rear bumper covers. It has a clean title history, with some service records available, and has just passed New Jersey emission inspection.

The car has been kept in the family. I bought it from my sister.

It's been extremely reliable. It has always started and ran flawlessly.

The air conditioner has weak to no cool output. It has never been recharged so perhaps that's the problem.

The timing belt and water pump have been replaced. Service receipts are provided.

I was hit from behind on I-95 at slow speed in stop and go traffic by a Ford Explorer. He veered off and clipped the driver side. I replaced both tail lights and thought I would do the body work. I decided not to finish the job. I have posted a good number of photos to illustrate the degree of damage.

The handle to adjust the recline on the driver side seat broke off during some freezing cold weather. I have the handle. It's in a good position for me so I never bothered to fix it.

The fog lights don't light. It could be he bulbs or a fuse. I haven't checked.

It could use a good cleaning inside and out.

The car was not in NJ during SuperStorm Sandy. It was in Richmond Virginia with me at the time.  

To sum it up:

This car has been one of the most dependable vehicles I have ever owned.

This is a car for someone that is mechanically handy that can fix it up for themselves or to re-sell.

Thank you for reviewing my no reserve auction. Email me with any questions you may have. If you have a low or zero ebay feedback please contact me before placing a bid. Thanks

Chrysler and Fiat offering $1,000 rebates to VW owners as Marchionne gets tough

Mon, 10 Dec 2012 18:02:00 EST

The throw-down between Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne and Volkswagen has heated up in earnest. According to Bloomberg, Fiat and Chrysler are now offering current Volkswagen owners in the US $1,000 rebates to trade in their ride. It's the latest in a series of shots Marchionne has taken at his German rival. As you may recall, the Fiat executive entered into a spat with Volkwagen board chairman Ferdinand Piëch and CEO Martin Winterkorn in October after the duo called for Marchionne's resignation from presidency of the European Automotive Manufacturers Association (AECA). At the time, the Volkswagen executives were quoted as saying Fiat would not survive the European economic downturn.
In response, Marchionne called the German executives "reprehensible," and accused Volkswagen of using a pricing strategy that has created created a "bloodbath" in the EU. Volkswagen has taken to steep discounting to carve out ever-larger slices of market share in Europe, but the company has a much smaller foothold in the US. Marchionne may be trying to hit Volkswagen where the manufacturer is weakest with the new Fiat new incentive program.
Late last week, the Fiat executive was voted to a second term as ACEA president.

Chrysler called out over lackluster Ram Runner by racer who helped develop it

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 15:52:00 EST

Fans of off-roading and desert blasting might recall that Chrysler offers an aftermarket conversion that can turn a Ram 1500 into a road-legal desert racer, called the Ram Runner. The kit, sold through Mopar, includes some significant suspension upgrades, body tweaks and a brawnier cat-back exhaust for the truck's 5.7-liter V8.
Considering all of this, comparisons with the almighty Ford F-150 SVT Raptor are common. Among the off-road community, that makes these two a sort of Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang for people that prefer driving on dirt. In the Race-Dezert forum, the discussion as to which truck was better was proceeding as normal - Ram fans said their piece and Ford fans said theirs. Then, a man named Kent Kroeker offered up his two cents.
See, Kroeker is a Baja racer, and the man that helped develop the Ram Runner. Despite his association with the truck, though, he had some less than kind words for Chrysler and the Ram Runner.

New UAW boss Williams talks tough, vows 'no more concessions'

Sun, 08 Jun 2014 13:33:00 EST

Dennis Williams, the newly elected president of the UAW, had some tough words for American automakers in his inauguration speech at the 2014 UAW Convention, striking down the possibility of any additional concessions from the 400,000-strong union.
"No more concessions. We are tired of it. Enough is enough," Williams said during his speech. UAW employees have not received a raise in nearly 10 years, according to Reuters.
Considering the recent strong results for Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, the union's demands are likely to carry a bit more weight in next year's negotiations. And considering Williams' tough stance, we could be in for some fireworks once negotiations commence.
