Great Little Auto — i like the stereo system the best. the moon roof is cool but hard to find a replacement. wheels are easily damaged by hitting a hole or berm. too much road noise. the car is very responsive when driving, the speed is quick and the brakes are great.

Pros

I love this Celica.  But I inherited my brother's Explorer when he passed away recently and I find it a little more practical for me at this stage of life.

Cons

Bad blind spot.  No other cons - I love this car!

Cute As A Button — I love my Toyota Celica. It's a comfortable, cute car. Very zippy for being smaller engine (I know nothing about that kind of thing). It's really fun to drive. It's gotten really good gas mileage - even with commuting. I only filled it about every 10 days or so and I commute 34 miles a day.

Pros

Handling and brakes are amazing, and still looks great even though it's almost 12 years old.

Cons

Tons of little things have gone wrong, so many rattles and unresolvable issues, back seat is too small, lots of road noise, harsh ride.

25

Great First Car — Accelerates pretty well for a car of its age. Brakes and handling are superb. The build quality is way below average for a Toyota, lots of squeaks, rattles, and many unresolved issues. Still looks amazing and the gas mileage is decent although paying premium sucks.

I love the handling and the looks most of all.

Cons

I hate the fact it's FWD.

Definitely A Buy For Me, Happy I Bought It. — Aside from the problems that plagued early build Celicas (mainly transmission issues) I have nothing but love for my Celica. It may not be the most powerful car in the world, but when lift kicks in at 6000 rpm, it just feels awesome. This is the first FWD car that I've owned and as much as I dislike the feeling of the front wheels doing all the work, I must say that it handles very well. I love the feel of the turn in, it grabs the road really well. Also, being so light, it's very easy to toss around. Soon it will be torn down and rebuild as mainly a track car and will be removing the problem of FWD for good :)

Great handeling and reliability.

Cons

I'm only 5'10" but i still had to slouch while driving to not hit my head on the roof.

Great Car To Learn To Drive On. — Was slow in low RPMs. The natural power curve of the engine was around 5,000 but Toyota's VVTL-i kicked in at around 6,500 and rev limiter stopped it at about 8,200. The gears were set so that every time u hit red line and up shifted the next gear would grab right at the start of v-tec.

Overall Pretty Worth While Car — i have new camshaft in working on intake or exaust next i think i'm going intake though. The intake i am looking into is going to give a boost of about 15 hp it is dyno'd and everything it looks legit.

handeling in the car is great and it looks good to me.

Cons

acceleration is not great

35

I Would Buy It Again Because I Enjoy This Car. — Overall performance of this car in terms of braking and handling have been great but the acceleration is the biggest negative on this car to me. I have not had to do alot of major repairs in the 5 years that i have owned the car. The styling of the car is what originally drew me to this vechicle and why i still love it today. the gas milage is good and averges 25 to 30 a gallon. The car has been very fun to drive over the past 5 years i have done a lot of work to it with the body kit, rims, sound system and all the other smaller extras. I have been very happy with the car and would recomment it to anyone.

The Best — its awesome but needs a turbo!! summer driving is the best with the windows down and the system up! gas is cheap and thankfully lasts along time. the only thing i really want is a straight pipe exhaust, just to hear it roar!!!
