2003 GTS vs 2004 GTS
I was browsing thru a Toyota dealership and I found a 2004 GTS w/action package and leather seats for $26.3K and a 2003 GTS w/action package without leather seats for $25.5K. They are not much different in price, are the leather seats worth it. Also,
Are there much differences between the 03 and 04 models?

They're both the same, nothing has changed. It's up to you if you want leather seats. I personaly don't like them 'cuz they get hot in the summer & cold in the winter. But if you like leather seats, then get the one w/the leather seats 'cuz it'll cost you more to get them upholstered in leather later on.

I'd go with the 04 without doubt. Go look up blue book price on a 2001 vs a 2000, even with the same mileage.

If you buy the 03, you're gonna be losing a ton of cash when you sell the car.

Get the 2004, better resale value down the road (like everyone said)

The 03 should be $2-3K less than that

I wish I could get leather added for $800. Katzkins wants $1200 to redo my seats.

Go with leather while you have the option.

i actually prefer cloth over leather...

leather is nice as hell, but cloth is more comfortable imo to the skin and such...

but either way, i wouldn't mind either one, i would take either one.

Maybe try to find a 2004 GTS w/action package without leather seats.. and see how much that is. When I got my car I went to 5 different dealers until I found what I wanted for the right price.. then talked them down a few $k... Always talk them down! One of my friends got a $29k mustang to $22k (after tax and license and everything).

leather is hard to maintain but if you buy good leather conditioner like Malco leather conditioner it'll always smells great and look good. take care of it and it should last thumbsup I noticed wear on my seats (25000 mi) but nothing major, my celi is black on black and it does get hot with 5% tint. get one of those reflectors to help with the heat

i would go for the 03 if it was untitled then they should knock a ton off the price simply for depreciation tehy can't sell it new because it isn't new anymore simply because it is already a year old.

if they won't chnage the price then get the 04 and live wiht the leather

i prefer cloth cause it holds you in better but couldn't find cloth in a gts when iw as looking
