When i found my celica, it wasn't even for sale officially. They were going to sell it to an auction because it was just a trade-in, with about 125,000 miles on it. I fell in love with it instantly and bought it anyway. It was the best, and most dependable car i have ever owned. The only thing i had to get done was oil changes, and was amazing on gas. i recently got in an accident, someone T-boned my drivers side. her front end was demolished, and i didn't even get a bruise. by this time there was about 155,00 miles on it..and still running absolutely perfect. I'm looking around for another celica right now, and there's no possibility that i will be purchasing anything other!
It's really good on gas and i love the style and way it presents itself. Never had any mechanical problems.
I personally had a bit of trouble in snow/ice, and rain even.
