Pros

If you want people to make fun of you, this is the car to buy

Cons

words cannot describe

25

What Were They Thinking — This purchase was just the worst decision I ever made in my entire life:s i was suicidal the first weeks i owned this car, but after seeing my shrink, i learned how to live with this crappy car.. i mean, this is just the worst mistake any car building company ever made.. It's ugly, slow, and definitly not least cheaply built..

Best Sport Car For The Money — The Celica GTS is one of the best made sport cars of old. It is no longer in prodduction and is very much in demand. A great fun car to drive that turns everyones head when you pass by. Hate to have to sell it but moved to New York and no one keeps a car in the big apple. Now have to get my thrills out of riding the trains.

Pros

Everything except the negative points ;)

Cons

Limited visibility, but it's a coupe, what were you expecting?

Review — - * Performance: – Acceleration: good, but could be improved slightly considering the engine the car is equipped with. – Braking: It could use a bit more brake power, but it's ok as it is. – Handling: outstanding with new tires, otherwise it's just ok. Very reliable, predictable and fun to drive. Clutch and gearbox sometimes lack precision, but not too much. * Build Quality – Not a single problem in 5 years of intensive use. Even after a small crash it has never given me any problems. – Very little space for the back seats. Usually, the car only fits 3 people max, as I will need to move the driver seat all the way back. – Loads of space for luggage, etc. * Appearance – interior is unbeatable. previous BMW 3-series are awful in comparison to this. Exterior is also great. Designed in 1999 and still looks great now in 2009. The wheels could be bigger and the back is not very nice without the spoiler, but it's still a very good looking car. * Cost of Ownership – Depends on how its driven, but it's definitely not an eco-friendly car :) Official Toyota service is THE BEST. I like their service more than Cadillac or Mercedez, and it's cheaper than VW-Audi too! * Fun Factor – Extremely fun to drive when road is dry. When wet, be very careful and know your limits.

Pros

Great on Gas! Sleek and Sexy!

Cons

It's a great car

45

My Celica — The car is sleek and stylish. Great on gas, especially since prices are going up. I turn so many heads when driving it. It came with a great sound system, CD and cassette player. It is fun to drive. I absolutely love this car. My dad thought it was a ferrari when he first saw the picture of it from the front. I wish Toyota hadn't stopped making them.

Pros

People admiring your car

Cons

Thinking that it can go really fast

45

Sporty And Economical — In my opinion: For those who are looking for an economical 2+2 Japanese sports car, look no further. Good fuel economy, can sit 4 people (including driver), reliable handling (even on stock suspension) and good built. But do not expect it to be fast like those cars you see on F&F.

Pros

I really love the look of it and the great handling.

Cons

I can't say I hate it but more horsepower would have come in handy :)

55

Awesome Look, Low Operation Cost, Low Power — Really reliable car. Great on fuel economy, good brakes and handling. Fun to drive and this car is definetly a head turner... But for those who quantify performance only by horsepower, this car isn't for you. The maintenance cost is minimal.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
