Is this the bargain of the decade..?

I went to view a year old Chrysler P.T cruiser 2.0 today, only 7,000 miles on the clock. The guy wanted 8,500 ($14,000). This has to be a steel surely...?

For North America that would sound about right, but not sure how much they go for in Great Britain...If it's really that low, I'd check it out on CarFax to make sure it hasn't been wrecked or stolen...

As a previous PT Cruiser owner, I have to say they are pretty decent vehicles. We never got the 2.0 engine here, however, and I'm not sure it's enough engine for the car (they are kind of heavy). The base engine here was the 2.4 liter DOHC, with 150 hp. Coupled to an automatic, it was a real dog. The 5 speed version (like I had) was much livelier. I'd also bet that the European versions all had the better suspension like my Touring edition had. I found it more than competent, and actually handled good in slalom racing (which I did for a year with the car). the main thing is how much space they have. 64 cubic feet of volume available!

I had mine for nearly 70k miles, and never once had a problem with it. No squakes, rattles or trim issues, and was as nice the day I sold it as it was when I bought it new 4 years earlier:

I've never been that impressed with the PT Cruiser, however, at that price it certainly sounds like a bargain. Ya see, I'd buy any car that was dirt cheap because just for this reason (obviously it would have to be in my price range though, lol). I strongly suggest you do a ChrisK says and have it checked out though, via CarFax, or our equivelent, an HPI check. It'll cost you around 30 and gives you piece of mind!

My friend rececntly bought a Range Rover at a bargain price, done his H.P.I check which resulted in an all-clear. A week later his car was repossesed due to many outstanding parking fines. Is there any way i can check on this also, as i'm looking to purchase this car tomorrow (Saturday). Thank you all
