  4. Bit of a general discussion one this one I'm just curious to pick other more superior opinions on here!! What sort of mileage/ and/or age do people find maintenance type costs rise on celicas/Toyotas/generally? Backdrop: was playing with the idea of also trying to pickup a cheap preface mk3 mr2 post summer to play with too but interested in people's opinions generally I've had v high milers some with motorway in the past trouble and corrosion free till scrapped and some lower milers but not quite perfect, my own gen 7 s gone 120-140k with me with not a huge history and I've just had the usual common things rectified (tho thinking a clutch change can't be far away) What sort of things do people particularly look for on high milers/older cars? PS.apols not posted for a while been busy but still reading.
