I love mine! grin

Although, I'm under 10,000 miles, so I may not count wink


But my horn has been screwy since day 1! I need to go have the dealer fix it one of these days tongue

I've had mine about 10 months. Bought it brand new (2003 GT 5 speed), and now it has almost 30,000 miles. I love my car. The only problems I've had are too much attention sometimes, and my bearings went out in my tranny (warranty rebuild, now its better than new)...I love my celica

I have had mine for a year, getting ready to hit 70000 miles and have yet to have a single problem. That no problem thing may end though when the Turbo gets installed.

I had no problem with my celica...perfectly fine until 35k...
Had mods and more mods were planned but heard my alarm go off at nite... went down, some body tried to break into my car I guess... I had no insurrance from day 1 so I didnt really wanna deal with that whole thing...so I sold it...

all cars have their problems... hondas arent super reliable cars because my sister's had a couple... the cars that break down often probably wasnt broken in correctly before redlining and shit... its mostly their fault

Other than the belt issue most of us have, no problems at all. 2003 GT with 55k on it, had a 2000 GT 120k at trade in (it was an auto, wanted 5 speed) ran like new. thumbsup

Had mine 2.5 years, got 74,000 on it, only trouble Tranny replaced at 38,000 was warranty work--factory defect on the pilot shaft the torque converter rides on. They said 1 in a million defect rofl they replaced tranny AND converter. Other than that, smooth sailin'!

eh man... first i got to tell you that my baby never really had a big problem either, except when its really cold outside or if its raining, she makes this really loud squeaking noise, and it seems like it coming from the timing belt, i will get it check out soon as the winter hit this year... any idea what it can be? also let me know...! other than that my celica is doing great.. another thing, is that your celica in the blue, i got to admit it to you man, my celica looks just like your, except black and its also a gts 2000. i will post my picture soon... cause i am new to ecelica...

had my celica since july 5, 2002.

its running great and i've had no problems at all.

its an auto and i usually like to shift but i've never redlined it, hence i've had no tranny problems.

the only problem i had to fix was to get new tires. my stock potenzas were bald like a futhermucker grin

I had a 90 Celi ST and i sold it last year with 287,000 miles and it was still runnin strong. The only thing I had to change was the timing belt that broke on me:( Now my 2000 celi gts has 64,000, and when i got it with 38,000 miles on it (ceitified) I had to get the transmision redone and the valves and springs replaced, and a bunch of other shit. But lucky me, the 6,500 dollar bill was all left to Longo Toyota;). Oh and when they had my car there, they backed it up into another one, so i was assed out a celi for 5 weeks:(. Gotta love that Warranty:D
