Its Amazing — I liked the sporty feel without the high price of a high end sports car. it really made me a happy camper to show off my car to friends and family. I really recommend this car to any safe and responsible driver.

The Best Celica Ever — fun car to drive, great performance and gas mileage. This is one car Toyota never should've stopped making. Scion TC is a very poor replacement, especially since the Supra died along with the Celica. On the tuner side, the celica is a rare participant, but when you do see one at a tuner meet or show, they really stand out from the rest.

Toyota Celica 2001 Gt — Everything was great about this car. Only complaint would be regarding the rear hatch hydraulics as they wore out very quickly Gas milage is very good. Car corners very well with good performance tires. Blind spots in the sides due to small rear windows and large panels

Great Car! — Not that fastest car in a straight line. But handles superbly. Put the right turbo on there for 260whp and this car is an absalute beast! Still not the fastest in a straight line but alot faster then alot of other cars out there... I freakin love it and am lookin to buy and Celica GT-S for a daily driver!

Cons

Easily totalled.

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na... Celica! — I only had this car for four days, so my "quick take"is actually gonna be quick. While I had it, the car was great - I didn't have time to have any problems before I totalled it. It looked awesome - I wanted a Supra, but this is my economy-priced consolation. I bought this six-speed without knowing how to drive a stick - and learned in 15 minutes when I had to drive to work immediately after purchase. It's an easy drive that just makes sense, and it looks great. But it's a girl car, and men, you will be laughed at if you buy it.

Toyota Celica Gt — I absolutely love my celica. It is the best car I have ever owned. The only thing I would improve, is that I bought the GT-S six speed model. The GT is a great car, but doesn't give the performance I am looking for.

It Was A Good First Car — not very quick being the gt. it was absolute red which is a very deep red. it wasn't very fun to drive cause it wasn't fast and it was an automatic. very good gas mileage though. very good looking car. has much potential have a 9.0 compression ratio.

Celica — Acceleration is good at high rpms especially after lift kicks in but is sluggish at lower rpm. braking and cornering are a breeze, once car was lowered and chassis was strengthened it stuck to turns very well. Never have needed any repairs and i have never had any problems with it in the 5 years i've owned it. appearance is beautiful inside and out its a good looking car. gets good gas mileage on highway decent in city. the Celica GT-S is a blast to drive if it wasn't i wouldn't still have it.
