problem #2

Jan 202011

PT Cruiser 4-cyl

  • 46,440 miles
With no warning and no apparent cause, the rear driver side quarter window detached from the car while driving on the interstate. Since I was unaware of what exactly happened at the time (I just heard a noise and felt some wind) I did not stop and am unaware of what if any property damage may have occurred to other cars as a result. Closer examination shows that the glass separated from the bolts that held it to the car. It looks like there is a recall for this problem on later PT CRUISER models (07V149000), but that does not apply to 2002 models.
