1990 Toyota Celica GT-R 2.0 DOHC 4 cylinder from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

Cheap Fast and Sexy

Faults:

CV - Boot done at 78000 kms.

Transmission beginning to give up a little - probably due to hard starts off the line.

Smokes a little when starts up - common low compression on celica.

Dashboard warped in sun.

Paint starting to fade due to (my) neglect.

General Comments:

Very comfortable kinda fast car for 2 people. But only 2 people.

I can drag off any sub 1.8 turbo manual and I've got an auto.

Standard speakers are really good, and they come with tweeters which is handy.

Just a great cheap fast car with every electric accessory you can think of - mines got auto headlights that come on in the dark automatically.

1990 Toyota Celica GTS 2.2L from North America

Summary:

Best buy for the dollar

Faults:

I was looking around for a luxury coupe (Lexus) when I came upon a 1990 celica celica GT-S. The timing belt needed replacing, and new plugs and wires.Man! this car is sweet, for city driving it's just like a 911.

The 1990 model is classic, my friends don't believe me when I tell them it's 14 years old!

Too bad the style has changed the cargo room when the seats are down is impressive.

General Comments:

Very fast four a 2.2L

Takes turns so good I spill my latte

Lots of space in back.

1990 Toyota Celica GT 1.6 5S-GE from North America

Summary:

A Performance Dream!

Faults:

Not too many problems with this car.

I had to replace the headlight when I bought it, but I think that the previous owner messed around with it.

Also, I had to replace the right front directional when I purchased it.

Some minor body work needs to be done.

The tires will have to be replaced after a few more 100 miles.

General Comments:

This car thinks that it has a V-8! It takes off like a shot. I've beaten a Civic V-TEC and a Ford Probe GT.

The interior is in very good condition as well as the engine.

The car handles like a dream. I love taking my Celica out for a drive in any weather.

A/C Works beautifully! The car just looks mean. It has a very intimidating look to it. After a new paint job, this car is gonna be hot!

1990 Toyota Celica GT 2.2 from North America

Summary:

A sporty, fun, reliable car !

Faults:

Normal maintenance -- front brakes replaced twice over 14 years.

Timing belt replaced at 80,000 miles. Timing belt snapped at 141,000 miles with no engine damage at all!

Passenger side seat belt won't retract -- happened when it was three years old.

Replaced clutch at 160,000 miles.

Replaced distributor at 160,000 miles. Due to oil in distributor causing misfiring.

Motor mount loosened - tightened at 160,000 miles.

Constant problem over the last five years -- oil leaks. This what most likely caused the distributor to go.

General Comments:

I had basically no problems until the clutch, motor mount and distributor issue above. And even those are fairly normal, except for the oil leaks.

It has always gotten better than expected gas mileage, it is still fun to drive, and it still looks like new after a wash and wax.
