1986 Toyota Celica GTS 2.0-3SGE from North America
I wish it was RWD
Had to replace header-cat pipe and also exhaust manifold because the bolts broke.
Had to replace slave cylinder for the clutch, brakes, steering column boots, an axle actually broke, constant problem with back lights, replaced wheel bearing, and some other parts.
Anybody know where I can find intake hose?
Engine still runs strong and needs a quart every month or so.
Steering fluid leaks; a common problem.
New problem I have is after driving it an hour or so at 80-90mph fifth gear grinds occasionally at 3000rpm? I would appreciate comments on this problem.
Dead air conditioner and heater works, however the air that comes out is polluted, actually gave me a throat problem for a while. Needless to say I stopped using it.
Cruise control broken.
Well you don't see many cars from this age on the road, so that says a lot about the strength of the car.
Good fuel economy and takes a beating. Needs to be driven at high rpm for its 120hp rated engine to show some muscle.
Some rust visible but still passes inspection.
Although it's old it's probably one of the best looking Celica models.
Good seats with electrical cushioning, but are extremely low, which isn't that bad once you get used to it.
Car handles great, especially compared to my old Tercel.
I still be cruising 80-90 on I-95 racing with gunners.
It's so old though that everyday I get in the car I wonder whether it's going to be its last day.
This car makes me want to be Japanese.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
