2001 Celica GT manual 165km (overhauled engine) for $6700

Here is what I was told:

1) The engine consumed oil but no blue smoke came out of the exhaust and there was no performance problem.

2) Toyota checked it out and finally concluded the pistons were oval

3) Toyota did the work under warranty

4) They redid the block, replaced the piston rings, deglazed the engine, something about the shaft drive, and a bit more (I couldnt write fast enough)

5) He has all the paperwork as proof

Currently has 165 000km but overhauled the engine at 90 000km.

Ok, so with all these details.. should I buy or wait and buy a celica without an 'overhauled' engine?

Forget it - Sounds too much with High Mileage for its age let alone with a re-con engine.

Find one with a good history that you can afford.
