How do I tow my PT cruiser?

    The other day I needed to tow my son's 2005 PT cruiser. It is so low to the ground we never did figure out how to do it, so I had to pay the wrecker $100 to take it a short distance. I want to know if anyone has any suggestions how to weld a hook to the frame or something. Please help.

    For a FWD vehicle it's preferred to get the drive wheels (front in this case) off the ground. The best suggestion I have is renting a tow dolly (about $50) if your tow vehicle has a hitch. In my opinion it would not be cost effective to weld a hook or brace to the frame. Maybe add towing/breakdown coverage to your insurance policy? It's only a few dollars.

    Hi Clark,

    If you paid $100 for a tow you need to join AAA. I have 5 cars all older than you probably :). I get 4 "free" tows per year AND they can be within 100 miles from home.

    It's bargain for me because I'm a hobby mechanic? and well, my work isn't guaranteed .......
