    Yes he is correct, the factory warranty is 3 yrs/36K.

    The dealer can't extend the factory warranty--all he can do is throw in some kind of extended warranty, which this car is probably eligible for. But of course someone has to pay for that. So that's where you need to focus, on an extended warranty contract. (which in any case you should read very carefully, as there are often exclusions).

    Don't get a PT Cruiser They're CRAP. Look for a Volvo V40 or 850.

    Your dealer is correct. I just purchased an 07 with 39,000 miles. The original lifetime drive train warranty applies to the original owner and is not transferable. Fleet cars (leases and rentals) are also disqualified from the lifetime agreement. The source pdf is the actual warranty addendum.
