I've been driving this car for over two years now and it is still going strong with over 291K miles. I probably put in about $500 altogether in repairs within the past two years. It's a VERY reliable car. Just a little slippery in the snow. I would recommend a Toyota to Anyone!
I have now owned my 1992 Celica GT for 5 months. It has 210,000 miles on it and shows no signs of slowing down. I had the timing belt replaced as a precaution and performed a tune up when I first bought the car. No other work has been neccessary on the car except for several oil changes. I like to baby this car and have made several modifications but none of it was neccessary. These cars are known for their great handling, fuel economy and reliability. They also have good low end torque and acceleration. 135 HP and 145 Torque is stock specs. Toyota has found an excellent combination of performance, reliability, practicality, styling and cost with the Celica.
Gas mileage, low end torque, looks and manual transmission.
Cup holders are in a poor location that complicate shifting.
This car has provided me with a great first car experience and I totally love this car. It has lots of power to it and is comfotable to drive. However it is a little bit noisy, meaning road noise. But overall I would recommend this car to anybody. Toyotas are very reliable.
My favorite feature is the smallness of the car. It handles awesome and just fun to drive.
The only improvement I would say that this car needs would be maybe a little more power. Maybe 150 -175 hp. But even that isn't a must.
I bought this car using the autotrader
website with 74k on it in March
of '02. 2 . years later no
problems.The arries the legendary and
very reliable 2.2L I-4 used in the
Camrys. This engine in this little
sports car really gets it moving
through all the gears which shift
smoothly with the hydrolic clutch. It
has a very solid highway feel and
cornering is a dream. The variable-
assist power steering gives it a solid
feel when cruising country roads. The
car sits very low and is not designed
for anyone over 5'10", especially with
the sunroof. The controls are easily
Great reliability, Body style,
Performance, Power sunroof slides into
body and not over it like on domestics
Better cup holder position, Backseats
not designed for anyone over 4ft.
Better and more reliable door seals.
Cup in cup holder blocks radio and
makes it very difficult to shift into 1
and 3 gears
