For Performance an early 00 is the best. That's just my opinion. I've noticed the Celica loosens up a lot regardless. I put a mile on it, but it also depends on the driver and roads, I guess. The older Celica may need some suspension work like struts. Something might have been lose or bent. Bushings that are worn or worked in. I would put it on the mileage or kilometerage, if that's a word, and how the new car was driven previously compared to the old.
