Yup. Was the first year.
5 speed or automatic? I have a 5 speed, and the only thing I don't like is
the seats. I'm looking for some seats from a Celica.
27,000, what's the asking price, and is it from a private seller or a
If it's from a dealer, is it Certified Used?
Now, for the crusher: it seems the 2.4L engine they used has a nasty habit
of kicking out a couple of the head bolts. I think there is a TSB (Tech
Service Bulletin) on this, but I don't know how Toyota is handling this. I
was at a Toyota dealer today and meant to ask, but forgot...
BTW, they seemed to have resolved the issue by 2007 or 2008. I think the
fix is to install a Heli-Coil, but that involves removing the head, and I
don't know if they pay for this.
For the good points:
it looks cool.
it handles like it's on rails.
it goes like a raped simian
it is a blast to drive.
it will do 125 MPH, and probably more. I was afraid of the ticket.
It has a "J" vin.
