Worst car ever purchased

Was told the car just needed new tires and brakes but when I took it to get the work done the mechanic said it had the worst case of cancerous rust to the entire undercarriage and could not try to repair it and the car should not be driven. It should have been sold for salvage only. It is still sitting at the shop because I can’t get repairs done to be able to drive it.

Love my Celica GTS!

I bought my 2003 Celica GTS brand new off the lot. I have always enjoyed driving it and still enjoy it. It was a daily driver for me, but I bought a Tacoma P/U, and retired my Celica, and have no intentions of selling it any time soon. It is so much fun to drive, although it is not driven much anymore. I have a little over 100,000 miles on it and still love to take it out for a spin once in a while....fast for a four banger!

Best car ever

I've owned alot of different cars and SUVs, and always wanted a celica. When I had to scrap my 99 Toyota Corolla, due to the frame rusting apart, I immediately started shopping for a celica. From the outstanding reliability to the exotic style of the exterior, its easily the best car I've ever owned. I've had it for 3 years, and have almost zero problems. 170k miles on it, and it still runs and corners like a true sports car. I have never modified it, nor ever will. In my opinion, its perfect as is.
