I bought my '91 Celica new and it now has 160,000+ miles on it. The trunk hinge problem is a design flaw and if you're not careful, the corner will bend up and you'll have to have the lid replaced (I've had to do this...). It's now happening to the second trunk lid. I had the hinges adjusted and they were better, but it still sticks. I have to tell anyone that opens it to lightly bounce it first when opening it -- drives me nuts. And forget the cup holder... LOL! But I am only now just beginning to replace original parts on my 21 year-old-baby (other than things like timing belt and water pump -- maintenance parts, etc.) and people are amazed at this fact (I'm not -- it's a Toyota!). My alternator and muffler were both only just now replaced and my front brakes were replaced once at 60,000 (I downshift) and clutch at 130,000. It has been the best car I've ever owned -- I sold my 1997 BMW 528i rather than get rid of my Celica because it wasn't anywhere near as reliable. I'll drop another engine and/or transmission into it before I'll ever get rid of it...Report it
