A Proper Good Car — Like its responsiveness, its economical. Would definately go out an buy another one. Good lookin car my best yet. Its very fast being only the 140 bhp apposed to the 180. Still nippy an leave everythin standing even BM's at lights.

Your Bottom-line On This Car — The exterior is sporty looking and the interior is very spacious for being such a small car. The gas mileage is outstanding with 29 mpg city. The car is not the fastest in the world but it has enough to pass people however the handling is superb making the car very fun to drive.

I Love The Celica Gt-s. Never Get The Gt Unless Boosted (vvt-i (no L)) (lift) — If you like Honda's VTEC system, You'll love the Celica's VVTL-i. I have outrun countless B18 Honda Civic SI's With My Celica. It not only kicks in harder, but is also a better looking car. I used to have a honda, sadly, it was a D17 Engine without VTEC. But on to the next one......Fun

Check For Service History — great car to drive cornering is fun at all speeds take my advice get the turbo . just watch the oil these babys use a litre of oil every 600 miles expensive repair if its not checked ie big end bearings con rods etc etc

Very Quick For A 4 Cylinder — extremly fun to drive 6spd minor modificatons, nothin extreme beats mustangs. (i think ive only seen like 12 today) i like the look but thats my opinion. another bulletproof toyota with no mechanical problems 32mpg highway which is very good considering how quick it is. very lightweight too.

The VVTLi engine is a must have experience

Cons

cant find a reason

25

Looks Fast And Is Fast. Wat Can I Say. — the valve drop system is amazing. u definately feel a good punch around 6000 rpm. also its a 4 banger so i can save gas and be very fast at the same time. very light weight allowing the 4 banger to carry it deep into the 100 mph range.

Great Car For Daily Driver And Then Some — Fun car to drive. I love the look inside and out. Mileage is above average about 30 mpg. Has a great engine but would like to do upgrades. Braking and handling is great. Off the line it's a lil slow but great for freeway racing.

Celicas Are Great — The Celica is my first ever car, and i abslutely love it. It handles amazingly, has a lot of power, and gets 33 MPG. I havn't had any problems with it this year other than just normal brake pad replacement or soemthing like that. My only real disatisfaction is that i wish i got a stick shift instead of automatic.

needs a wider powerband.

Celica Gt - Its Sexy. — Performance - Handles great, really tight cornering. Could use more power, especially down low. Quality - Toyota, that's all you need to know. Appearance - 18"'s, CF hood, TRD wing and kit. gets glances. Cost of ownership - minimal maintenance. Gas mileage is as good as you can expect from a 1.8L engine. Fun factor - extreme.

Stassia's Celi. =] — My car runs like a champ. I havent had any problems with it, but its only got 40,000 miles on it. Best car ive ever had. LOVE it. Not sure if id ever have another car that wasnt a celica. =] I bought it back in June of 2007 with 32,000 miles on it. It was completely stock then, I got the kit put on in March and just got the new set of rims a week or so ago. Yes, she was built not bought. Its slow, I admit that. I dont feel the need to lie and say its fast just to look cool. Its all show, no go. =]
