Well. Funny thing is I was on my way to go check out a nice low mileage Celica GT-S and a Turbo GSR Civic since I just got out of active duty and needing a car. Saw this guy getting detailed and washed at a small dealership. I've only seen this car once in my life and that was when my co-worker drove one back in my McDonalds/High School days. I've always wanted one. So anyways I went to check it out and instantly fell in love. Now I haven't been in the car scene since I left but a smaller coupe getting a V6 and coming automatic I instantly asked to test drive which made it even better. After that I went home and got the cash and just grabbed it. 88K miles and paperwork for maintenance as well as a new rebuilt trans. Drove it home and so far it has not left me stranded or broke down on me. I don't care if it's not the 5 speed or 6 speed version. The auto trans is tough and can take a beating. I no longer have to worry about clutch issues and replacements. Just keep the fluid looking nice and it'll be all I need to do. I respect all my cars and baby the shit out of them until track/play time. I am now at 117K miles going strong and have done two trans flushes. Took it out of state and after 2100 miles of pure driving the engine is still healthy, trans healthy and the body is in excellent shape. I love this car.
