Is a 2002 Toyota Celica reliable?
I am 16 years old and am looking for a first car. At
first I was looking at a cobalt ss.. but I found that
they aren't the most reliable and may cost alot of
money later on. Now I am looking at a 2002 Toyota
Celica with 93000 miles on it for 4500. #1 is that a
good deal for the car? #2 are they reliable or will
stuff often break? #3 will it last me a few years?
This should be about as reliable as you can get for an older car with 93K miles. Take good care of it and it could easily go another 100,000 miles provided it is in good shape now.
The price seems good but I did not check it. Offer them 4k and see what they say. Do an online price check yourself - Blue Book, NADA, Black Book etc.
They are great reliable car I had a 2002 and to put 420,000 km on it
I hope you bought the car :) I have a 96 Toyota Celica convertible , with 154000, and it runs great! Great gas millage too! Other than minor cosmetic updating, it hasn’t cost me that much :) As long as you don’t get careless when driving , it should last you a long time :)
