Pros

Dependable, took a beating and kept on going

Cons

Poor acceleration, paint peeled after a while

My First — Handling was good, especially with the low profile tires. Acceleration was not the greatest, but you can't accept much from a 4-banger. Breaking was good, and would stop on a dime. Headlights could be a little better...not the best. Overall, it definitely was a dependable car. Glad I had it

Dubbed A Chicks Car, But I Enjoy Looking At It As Mush As Driving It. — I can carry an amazing amount of stuff in this car. I even had a dryer in the back. I carry my bike in the hatchback. Have to remove the front tire but, what that is resy as the bike has easy levers on the wheels. The mechanics say they like working on the engine. The seem very impressed with the resilince of the engin. I am too.

Excllent Sports Car And Especially Great For Daily Usage With Teh Standard 3s Engine... — Most Recent investment in getting this Toyota Celica proved to be the best decision ever.... with just over 140hp under the hood.., this street machine is excellent for street use.....ya to upgrade to a 3SGTE would take it to the tracks and timing would be great..however no such interest right now.

Cheap & easy to maintain. Good performance. Pretty car.

Cons

I Love It!!! — Swift(ish) acceleration, gearbox better suited to motorways as ratios a bit tall but once rolling accelerates well. Great handling. Rock solid build quality. Pretty exterior, typical 90s interior. Cheap(ish) to run. Super reliable. Fun to drive when pushed hard.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Silly Car?!? — Loved this car, it was everything you could wish for. Looked stunning, went like the clappers and clung to the road like glue Totally under-estimated in my opinion. These are now a cheap motor with bags of character and loads of fun. Seriously the GT4 must be a lightningly fast car if my little 2litre was anything to go by.

Pros

Gas Saver, Sounds Great, Great Handling, Great top speed

Cons

Slow Acceleration for 0 to 60

Celi — This car was my baby. It is very good with Gas and the Exhaust sounded amazing. My celica had great Handling and it was my project car too. I did tons of work to it spend about 2,500 dollars on transmission, cold air intake, air fliter, Exhaust system, radiator, Headers, and short ram Intakes.

Pros

Looks, performance, comfort.  Basically everything.

Cons

Nothing to hate yet, aside from having to fix all the stuff that was neglected but that's not the cars fault.

Will Be Keeping This For A Very Long Time. — Well, lets see. I purchased the car in August of 2012 and have been fixing all the neglect of the previous owner. I have replaced the turbo since it was seized and broken and have a few little things left to fix. In terms of cost, it hasn't been too expensive to be honest, even considering I've had to search for parts since the car wasn't sold here. Acceleration wise, it's pretty quick. 255hp and AWD makes it get off the line quick and since the turbo has a ceramic exhaust wheel, it spools very fast. Not much lag to speak of. The brakes are huge, they are 315 mm (12.4 in) rotors with a 4 piston caliper off a Supra Twin Turbo. Comes to a stop very well but I've also got some high performance tires on it so that helps as well. It's a 90's Toyota which means it's built like tank. Aside from parts that have been broken by the previous owner, it's in great shape. I think it looks great. The huge vent on the hood with the small ducts to cool various engine parts. Four round headlights I think look very cool along with big fog lights give it a tough appearance. It has a very curvy body with big rear fenders and out back has a raised 2 post spoiler. The spoiler is straight from WRC and I think looks really good as well. Few things that the WRC model has over the regular GT-Four are the lifted rear spoiler blocks, the small wing along the back of the hood and the water sprayer inside the bumper to cool off the radiator for the intercooler. It also has a set of OZ Racing Cronos wheels in 17" diameter which are also in white that look great on it! Much better than the 3 spoke wheels that come standard (I think they're very ugly lol) Considering I'm just about finished getting it on the road, I don't have good ideas yet on gas mileage. I've read that if you keep it out of the boost and drive casually, you can see some pretty decent mileage out of it. Once I get it on the road and take it to my favourite road, I'll update with how fun it is to drive.

Love It — just an overall great car - have 160K miles on and recently re-did all the suspension and handling so drives like new again. Good winter handling, and gas milage. Has the whole stylish feel to it with spoilers and everything - put some speakers in the trunk really enjoy driving it now
