Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2003 Toyota Celica Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 25,767 miles


I had to have clutch replaced at 25,77 miles on my 2003 Toyota Celica GT purchased new April 2003. Again I had to replace clutch @ 56,089. From the day I purchased this car I had problems with putting car in gear and complained to dealer, who said there was nothing they could do. I've driven manual Toyota cars since 1966 and never had any clutch repairs on any of my Toyota. I had over 144,000 miles on my 1987 Toyota MR2 when I traded it in 1994. I think it is excessive to have a total of 3 clutches at 56,089.
