Just bought Salvaged 2003 GT - General questions
I just purchased a 2003 GT (Spectra Blue Mica) yesterday, and I must say I'm amazed by the acceleration and handling of the car.
My very first car was a 1982 Celica and I've also owned a 1980, but wasn't even aware of the drastic style change of the 7th generation til I was looking for a car to replace my 95 Honda Accord which was stolen last week.
I bought a salvaged title 2003 GT with 63,000 miles for 5200...the seller was asking 6500.
My question's about security and some features of the car.
When I bought the car, the seller told me there's a chip in my car key and the car won't start without the specific key.
Is this a standard feature for all 7th Gen Celicas?
Does this mean that thieves can't hotwire the car?
And the what the hell is the small round orange domed cover that's on the dashboard where the front windshield meets the dashboard on the driver's side?
