So should I go with a Celica or the Scion TC?
I was looking for a coupe and somewhat sporty.
I say go for the Celica. It has some good history, its name has some Rallying Pedigree (Celica GT Four). Plus, it might be even cheaper than the tC, for a good one.
Not at all. The last Celica died with the disastrous 7th generation back in the mid 2000s.
The Scion tC is based on the European Toyota Avensis with a Camry 4-banger.
There wasn't a decent North American market Celica after the All-Trac Turbo was dropped in about 1993.
The guy who was selling me the Infiniti G35 contacted me again and said he gonna give it to me for 7k. We had a deal for 6.5k but he added $500.
The car is in very good condition. What do you think?
Not a good sign that he wants another $500 if you've negotiated a deal. It also isn't a good sign if the guy's been selling the car for this long and it's still hanging around.
The safe thing would be to pass. If a car has 116,000 miles, it's seen the best part of its useful life.
As far as the condition, did you actually confirm that with a trusted third party expert? Remember, you started out talking about a car on a salvage title. Yikes.
If you had a deal for $6500, tell him that you won't take it for anything over that amount. If the seller feels that you've really set your eyes on that car, you're making yourself very vulnerable to price increases, etc.
The salvage one was for $5900 but this one is with a clean title.
How many owners?
Ill be the third one. Would you take a newer car with a lot of mileage or an old car with less mileage?
Say Honda Accord 99 with 86K or Honda Accord 03 with 125K?
Also why is Toyota Celica GTS is expensive than GT?
They have same engine and look.
When I checked the KBB, a GTS with 120K miles was for $5845(very good) vs GT with 106K miles for $5345 with all the same options.
IMO as long as Honda's are well taken care of, mileage doesn't matter.
GT vs GT-S
The tire upgrade was merely US$42 so most GT-S models had the optional wheels and tires. All GT-S models had 4-wheel disc brakes and metal pedals. Manual transmission shifters and all steering wheels were upgraded to leather. Hatchback cargo covers were standard along with fog lights for models without the Action Package.
I'm assuming you are referring to the last generation Celica.
