I know I may get flamed here but can the 01 Tranny Last? I took a look at the 01 auto today and it was a fun car to drive. Any issues of these failing when there pushed hard? Is this tranny in any other Lex or toyota's? I just dont want to replace trany at 80K.

Also what are average prices for Timing belt replacements? I know some cars can be done for a few hundred and others are 1400.

The auto tranny is very strong, actually some prefer to turbo the auto version instead of the manual version. The five speed has been more prone to failure when boosting.
As far as the timing belt, not sure, I think the manual recommends to be changed at 90K
