1980 Toyota Celica Review Ratings
1980 Toyota Celica Review
Reliable, easy to fix, inexpensive and very readily available parts.
Slightly low on power, and a little heavy.
My Favorite Car I Owned While Growing Up — I chose this car on the strength of Toyota's reputation, and it never disappointed me. I used it daily for commuting to and from school over many years, and over almost 100,000 miles. The best part was that when I bought it, there were already 127,000 miles on it. When sold, it had 225,000 miles. I loved its reliability, durability, and ease of repair. I learned to perform many types of repair on the car, not due to any fault of the car, but simply due to its age and use. I rebuilt the carburetor (a wonder of pre-injection smog-equipped complexity), pulled the transmission to replace some synchros, replaced the driveshaft, re-drilled and tapped the exhaust manifold studs, fitted headers, the list goes on. It is the car I think of fondly when I think of my youth.
