Buying A Celica

Recommended Posts


I currently own a 1996 Mr2 and expect to replace it with a Gen 7 Celica.

In fact I'm going to look at one locally in the next few days (a 2006 VVT-LI 190 T Sport). It's supposedly done 55K and only two owners with plenty of receipts/service history.

Appart from the obvious - HPI - MOTs - History and cosmetics what should I be looking at in terms of known faults with this model?

From what I've read the engine has a timing chain? - is there anything expensive which is normally replaced around this sort of mileage - Something really to negotiate on the price would be helpful.

Many thanks
