just asking a general question.... what could possibly fail on a brand-new, factory-installed turbo setup? the reason i ask, is that my dad wants to trade in his n/a pt cruiser that he has on lease for a new turbo pt cruiser. after the sticker shock, (they were asking 28G) he found out that the turbocharger is only under warranty for 1 year, while the rest of the powertrain has the 7/7000 or whatever it was... so why would they only warranty the turbo for 1 year? is there something that might fail prematurely, that would only be in the turbocharger? dont say anything about daimler-chrysler quality... they make mercedes-benz and i have a turbocharged caravan (stock) that has had no problems at all, except for accessories and i blew a front seal, i think it was (camshaft seal?) but its 13 years old!
