Toyota makes some of the most reliable cars on the market. I know, my family owns 5 of them, all between 2 and 20 years old, with no problems. If you think you'll be getting a more reliable car by purchasing a VW, think again. My family rented a Jetta a few years ago (only had a few thousand miles on it) and while driving it on the freeway, the exhaust came loose and was bouncing between the road and the bottom of the car. We had to stop and tie the thing with some rope to keep it from destroying it's self. Next, we found that when we removed the key from the ignition, the whole ignition came out along with it (wow, those Germans sure know how to build quality stuff!). That's pretty bad for any car, especially one that's only a few months old. You get what you pay for. When you buy a Toyota, you're getting a well made reliable vehicle. Sure, they may initially cost more that other seemingly "comparable" models, but over the life of the car, you'll save money by having fewer expensive repairs.

Hey what's up all... all I gotta say about the Celica GT-S is that I absolutely love mine. It is such an awesome car... and it's fast. I put an AEM Cold Air Intake and a Tanabe Super Racing Medallion Exhaust on mine, and let me tell you, my car hauls. I have estimated my 0-60 time at about 6.5 seconds or so, and sometimes, a little less than that. But anyways, I think a lot of people rag on the Celica, but I can guarantee that those people probably didn't even test drive one. I drove it for the first time and I was hooked. There are so many parts that I am gonna put on my Celica in the near future, I can't wait. And as far as my opinion on Jettas...well...they are not bad... but I would never take one over a Celica.
