Oh what a feeling! (NOT)
By California07 on


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


Bought an '01 GT as a Toyota Certified Vehicle. Three weeks out, found that it burns oil at about 1600 mile to a quart - complained to Toyota and went to arbitration, but they won't warranty until it's burning a quart every 1200. Last month the catalytic converter died (warrantied by Toyota) and last week the manual transmission died at 82K miles - just had it repaired for $3500, since Toyota would not cover it, though it was a Certified Vehicle and used carefully. Think twice about buying a Toyota Certified Vehicle - worst car I've EVER owned, and I've bought 8 Toyotas since a 1971 Crown, and several that I drove 200+K miles.

Best Features

Fun to drive.

Worst Features

Get back to Toyota reliability - this thing is JUNK! Toyota won't be in first place for long if they develop cars like this!
