Fast And Furious — Fantastic car. Great gas miliage. Acceleration is there. Braking, you can stop on a dime. Handles like a BMW. Definately in control while driving it. It's a blast to drive. Never raced it, but I would love too. Hate to sell it but I just bought a new Ford Escape XLT because I needed more room!!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: RARE CUSTOM CAR

Cons: NOT ENOUGH ROOM FOR 3 LARGE DOGS

Blue Celica — reliable yet stylish, good responses, solid feel, 6-speed manual, solid braking power, stiff and responsive handling, interior and exterior styling is great still to this day, good mileage but uses premium which stinks in this day and age, very few repairs needed, the biggest was the water pump needed to be replaced, the gas lifters on the liftgate don't hold it up anymore along with some other small signs of wear

Pros: styling, handling, brakes, reliability, mileage, cargo capacity, fun to drive

Cons: uses premium gas, seats uncomfortable on long drives, shifter not as precise as it should be

Pretty Good. —

140hp for a lightweight car which is OK. Could do with a little more power at times but it is a front wheel drive vehicle so more and more power will only create different problems. Good low, coupe looks with a surprisingly spacious boot. Has a fairly good soundtrack for just a 1.8ltr and given the right conditions the exhaust has been known to make a rather cool crackling noise. 6 geared box which I love but in all honestly only the 1st and 2nd are any fun. I'm not sure if it's just the cheap crappy tyres I have on or if the car just handles like this in general but the car doesn't tend to let you control where you want to go in a slide and sliding by mistake is as a simple as going 40mph+ and turning the wheel a tad too far too quickly. Good driving position and amazing standard bucket seats make it a very comforting place to be and help you feel secure enough to try stupid things on a regular basis. All round a good starters car for someone coming out of their one point nothing baby hatch but after nearly two years of ownership the appeals starting to wear off a bit and I'm craving a bit of none front wheel drive now with a bit more power to it.

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

Pros: Good sound for 1.8, low-ish insurance, not a hatchback

Cons: Can be lacking power, front wheel drive, small alloys as standard
