Based on the fact that you're driving around with an engine light on, it sounds like you don't know how to properly care for a sports car, and maybe it was a bad decision for you to buy one in that case. When properly maintained, the Celica is more mechanically reliable than an Abrams tank. It's quite easy to find owners who have put 200,000 to 250,000 miles on the original engine and transmission with no major issues AT ALL. And for what it's worth, my 2004 GT-S breezes through emissions with no issues. I've owned it about a year and a half, and the only maintenance I've had to do is oil changes and 1 set of brake pads. Bottom line: your poorly-maintained car's mechanical issues are no indicator of Toyota quality, only of the quality of your own vehicle care. If you take care of these cars, they'll take care of you for a LONG time.Report it
