Car noob right here! :)
I'm just wondering what you guys think of this celica. I'm not big on Performance tweaking or anything. But Celica's are just awsome. Toyota's in that matter last forever! I have a Toyota Camry right now with 223000 miles on it and it's running great! I was hoping to get this car in the near future if they still have it on the lot.

Would that be a good price for that car? Good and bad things about the car? Give me some info.

Thanks guys.

I would pay about 10 grand for it (considering the kit and all, GT auto).

If you're looking to race, I'd look for a GTS 6-spd. You could probably grab a used one for 10-15 grand (I would think).


But otherwise, 16 grand seems a bit high to me, I got a new '04 GTS for a bit less than 25 (no body kit or anything though).



I'm sure the other folks here can give you better advice than I can wink

I just got mine today, and it's awesome! Too bad that one's an auto. I've yet to see anything wrong with mine, except that if you are tall it may be a little snug.

Yah, 16K seems a little high, but that's because its at a dealership. Make 'em an offer, maybe 13K, see what they'll do.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

Thanks for the info guys! Do you guys know any good places to search for Celicas? I used Toyota.com to find that one. They also have a 2001 and a 2000 there too. Forgot specifics on those though.

Arumndark: Not looking for racing. Just casual driving smile

Ragingpaseo: Auto/manual I have never driven a manual. (Don't hurt me!) Although I would like too. But I heard there is a lot of upkeep with manuals. Is that true or is it the other way around?

i got my '01 GT 5spd for 13,588 before taxes and it has 12,500 miles on it. ChrisE, I've never driven a manual before today, but I learned real quick and I love it.

u said you wasnt lookin for racing, so i say just look around till you find the right one for the right price. reason i say is all celicas be it auto, manuals, gt or gts are fun to drive. just try to find one in ur price range in good condition and add some stuff as you go along. good luck thumbsup
