Hard To Beat A Car That Lasts This Long. — I love this car. It was my very first car that I bought brand new. I went on many ski trips with this car when i lived in Colorado. I would take three other people besides myself to the mountains with four sets of downhill skis and four sets of cross country skis and sixteen ski poles. All the skis and poles were on the roof top ski rack. All of our ski boots extra clothing for the trip was in the trunk. That was before I put the big sound system in. The Celica performed so well in the mountains and we never even put tire chains on the car. I wish I had bought a dozen of these cars. This has been the most trouble free car I've ever owned and I've had a lot of car over the years.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Awesome sound system-- Excellent alarm system with extras-- Always had TLC-- Interior has been completely redone, it's beautiful!

Cons: Little bit of minor rust-- needs to have carb rebuilt but does run-- A/C needs work-- needs tires

Good While It Lasted. Good Trade In Value For A Junker. — This was my first new car, it was a head turner and it preformed well. At 3 years old with just under 50,000 miles the unibody crumbled under its own weight when jacked up to rotate the tires. An after dark trade in got me a new Chevy!

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

Pros: Looks, price

Cons: Early rust

Celica Gt Is Acceptable By Syed

For a relatively inexpensive used car, it is a good buy. I broke the manual transmission when I was younger because of stupid driving, and replacement was 1600 dollars (paid a dealer. Stupid on me). A... Read More

Love It By Fem_I_am

Overall great car. Good first car or second car. Great fuel economy. Love this car. The power at 140+/- HP for a small car is great but could be better. The handling is great along with the styling. W... Read More

The Best Celica Ever By Kieth

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... Read More
