You are in the Toyota Celica

Toyota Celica, Coupe, Hatchback

have been WAAAAY up and down over the years, and celica has never sold as well as integra (to name one close competitor)
in particular, the 90s were low sales years, and after the intial redesign in 2000, sales plummeted once again. Toyota doesn't usually sell such low-volume cars unless they are built here to keep them cheap.
basically, it is finally giving up on celica having a bounce back to 80s sales volumes. It is a shame though, as you say: its lineage is equal to that of corolla and land cruiser (Camry is a latecomer)

Camry may not have the lineage of those other nameplates, but it does carry a lot of power in the automotive industry. It would be a name you wouldn't see disappear unless Toyota pulls a '96 Taurus.

hey, I was a victim of a misshift in my 2000 gt-s 6 speed. My boyfriend (Now X obviously) misshifted very badly. Trying to go to 4th in a race, it slipped back into neutral while going about 75mph or so and he buried the rpm needle into 9 grand for about 2 seconds. I took it to soem toyota techs and so far I've paid 1,275 bucks to have 4 severely bent valves replaced. Two weeks later my check engine light is back on and I'm supposed to go get it fixed again.... the 6 speed celicas are notorious for this problem and Toyota NO LONGER has this problem under warrenty because it is occuring sooooo much. They say it's driver error. Life lesson: Lil boys shouldn't play with womens toys.

the 6-speeds were notorious for having the gear slip back into neutral, though!
I think the problem before the redesign was shifting down 4 gears by mistake instead of 2.

Ok guys, wish to replace my under-seat Sirius tuner with a plug and play unit. Where can I put this darn thing in my 6-speed!
