Buy it...if you can fix it.
By krustuhfar on


2001 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


This vehicle looks and performs pretty well. But its a huge money pit. Big thumbs down. So much for the reliability for toyota. I bought mine brand new and before i had even hit 100k i had already replaced the clutch twice, tension pulley, water pump, and the sunroof leaks TERRIBLY. and i only drive it about 400 miles a month. I would never buy this car again.

You replaced the clutch twice in 100K? I have never heard of a clutch going that fast unless you are slipping the daylights out of it. You must have had a lot of burning clutch smell?
