Hi to all ZTH celica sifus...
i'm eyeing on 7 gen Celica...most prob auto trans coz my wife will be driving it a lot
wat i would like to know is the common prob with this batch celica..

-Is there a big for manual and auto? as in the rev limit or like when auto shift thr rpm will drop below the 'high lift cam' ?
-I heard the super struts r good but the parts r hard 2 find and it cost a lot too...
so if i get the normal model and then lets say juz chg to Tein lowering spring, is the handling ok?
Say celica's handling...since its a FF...i bet understeers r normal...but how does it compare 2...erm..ek? dc2? dunwan 2 compare until dc5
-How's the fuel consumption of this babe?
-My main worries are just parts...i means the common parts tat usually kong easily wit tis celica model

still have lots of question but will ask again when sifus reply...tq

err...

i think your questions/requirements are too contradict to your wife needed. :hmmmm:

- yup a big gap between manual and auto in term of performance.
- main difference between normal and super struts is handling. the car still the same..:biggrin:
- i dunno if compare to dc5 because never drive it. but the normal celica already have good handling
- auto tranny has teribble fuel consumption
- depends on which part you refer. but surely it will cost u more than common cars like vios, altis, etc

sure there are gonna be diff between auto and manual.
Handling no problem wut so ever with stock spring.
Fuel consumption 400-600km depends how heavy ur leg is
As far as parts are concerned most of them are not expensive. Some of the part can even take from vios or altis cuz they use the same thing.

the performance between auto and manual is big difference but in manual mode for auto you still can reach 7k rpm and experience lift but during gear shift the drop in rpm is huge

so if i get the normal model and then lets say juz chg to Tein lowering spring, is the handling ok?
I'm using tein super street coilovers and the handling is great.

How's the fuel consumption of this babe?
like what others said it depends on how you drive. for me i cant drive without the m mode so consumption is a lil high. changing gear at 3k rpm for city drive in m mode i achieve around 400km. For a high rev engine i think its great and of course cant compare with bigger engines or common car.

I driving SS1 auto. Fuel about 11 to 12km/l. SS2 probably around 10km/l +- a bit.

My car 7 years already. Things that spoilt so far:
door actuator (to unlock door using central system)
aircon bulb
some thermostat thing that make my aircon not working

everything else seem to be working fine. if you not thinking of modding then best is to find one that is totally stock since day 1 (not those that zhng until messy then dekit everything and sell).

been driving mine for almost 6 years now... things that broke down were door actuator, stucked thermostat, engine mounts and now I think my O2 sensor is giving up.....

I get about 550km-600km per full tank in city driving....

superstrut edition is the high spec version.... it's not just the suspension that's superior... comes with leather steering and linings, aluminium trims and pedals, rear trunk strut bar......

if you can get a SportM with all the goodies still intact then even better.....
