Sweet Little Car — This is a very zippy, quick little car. Handles like a go-cart. Good looking, excellent build quality. Great gas mileage, drivetrain still going strong at 12 years old with 102,000 miles.

Pros: Quick, cheap to maintain, good looking, all around a pretty fun car to own.

Cons: A tad underpowered, could use some more torque for low-end acceleration. As this is a sports car and is very light, does not do well in snow or ice

Most Reliable Car Ever Owned Even With A Regular Thrashing — Excellent handling with a breakaway point that is easy to judge, so no suprises when the tail kicks out. The 1.8ST is underpowered for the weight but keep the revs wound up high and there's still plenty of fun to be had. The same goes for acceleration but it still left plenty of cars at the lights with good timing, holding the car on the e-brake and the clutch on the biting point at 2k and just a small touch of wheelspin improved the take-off.

Pros: Reliability, well balanced

Cons: Underpowered, expensive uprated parts

Best Car I've Ever Owned — I bought this car on a trip w/ my daugher playing J.O. Basketball in Cincinatti, OH. Just goofing around test driving cars and ended up hauling it back to Colorado on car hauler. It had 67,000 mi then. I now have 173,000. and still going strong. When it dies, I'll get another engine. This car will remain in the family forever. Good Gas mileage, good speed, has always shifted well. This car I have kept longer than anything else in my life. Both my kids have learned to drive a standard shift using this vehicle because it's easy. I wish I owned another.............

Owner for 10 years, 0 months

Celica Gt Is Acceptable By Azereza

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
