    Sporty Ride. — I really like how it handles. You never feel like you can't take that curve. Acceleration is crisp and responsive. Braking is good. The Toyota Celica is a great car for a fun spin around town and surprisingly, it is good on fuel. You can use it to commute without breaking the bank.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty, good handling. Solid build.

    Cons: It is basically a two seater with 4 seats.

    Celica Gt Is Acceptable — 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). Aside from that, maintenance has been gratefully inexpensive and have had the pleasure of owning this car for 6 years with little issues. Strong engine, strong brakes and currently at 150k miles. Getting older so the loud, small, show offy car may be out of my style now, but I still love her nonetheless and when she goes caput, its gonna be hard to say goodbye.

    Pros: It looks nice for the price, and can be mistaken for a pricier car for the untrained eye

    Cons: Loud at high speeds, or in general. Lots of road noise, and stock sound system is not strong enough to cope.

    Fantastically Fun — I love this car. I love the looks, the ride, the fuel economy, and the reliability. Toyota has had a bad rep recently, but my '03 Celica has never had a major problem. She's always been able to safely get me from point A to point B. I highly recommend this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This is an incredibly fun car to drive, handles well, is small, and can make quick maneuvers.

    Cons: It's not exactly family friendly or friendly towards very tall people....

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive handles well

    Good — The feeling you get when your driving this car so low to the ground is pretty awesome. Knowing you get great gas mileage makes you step on the gas pedal a little harder getting that VVT-I engine work for the speed.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great gas mileage, for a 1.8L engine gets 180 horsepower

    Cons: small, very low to the ground,

    Fun To Drive — performance- quick but definately needs a turbo Build quality- definately done right Appearance- celica is a good looking car to begin with but it helps to have a TRD body kit and engine in it Cost of ownership- really doesnt cost that much to repair anything, i have blown out the clutch once and had to replace it and it wasnt quite as bad as i thought Fun Factor- i like having ppl ride in the car and grab the side bc of how scared they are and how they didnt think the car would be that fast

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: i love the ride, its smooth and fast

    Cons: not fast enough

    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.

    Pros: Top reasons to drive this car

    Cons: Top reasons to avoid this car

    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

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

    Pros: Fun Fun Fun

    Cons: None
