problem #1

Dec 052004

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles
PT CRUISER ball joints prematurely failing. Impending failure identified during routine snow tire installation. Problem sounds very much like the durango problem. Service technician says this is a common problem with the PT CRUISER. Our vehicle is just out of warranty. This is an accident waiting to happen!
