where can I find production numbers and also informatiohn to decode the data plate for a 2001 PT Cruiser
It's very hard to get production numbers for more modern cars, the companies just don't seem to release the numbers as readily as they did before. You may want to check out www.ptcruizer.com, they should have a lot of info and may be able to point you in the right direction.
