1993 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Convertible


Review

The fifth generation Celica is a great
car. I just bought my 3rd one, and
continue to be thrilled with it. In my
work, I drive ~ 30 to 40K miles per
year. The Celicas have all been great
to drive, reliable, with good mileage
and classy looks - especially Gracie,
the current one. A white ragtop.
Beautiful.

Even better is that I've purchased all
three used, drove 2 of them past 200K
miles (still working on #3), never had
a real breakdown - as in stranded on
the roadside - and my insurance costs
are minimal. What more can a girl ask?


Best Features

Solid performance especially steering, power and suspension. Ergonomically perfect for my body size (tiny). EXTREMELY reliable.


Worst Features

Would love to have additional adjustments to the driver seat. Ragtop showing signs of possible leaking -- it's smelling musty. This is my first time with an automatic transmission and believe a manual is much better. Overall, no significant complaints.

1993 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Coupe


Review

I have owned this car for the last six
years. A lot of fun to to drive. Great
breaks. The engine is quick of the
line but does leave one a little
wanting after 5000 RPM. Handles very
well too and is extremely durable. At
180,000 miles I am going strong and
hope to break 200,000. I would hate to
get rid of this car ... there a few
good replacements available. Maybe a
new Scion tC???


Best Features

Driving position, power train, body style, reliability and durability.


Worst Features

The new Celica is nice but not quite what I am looking for. Maybe when my local Scion dealer finally gets a tC in stock I will decide to upgrade.

1993 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my GT coupe 2-door, two years
ago, but the car was recently
totalled. Not a bad car, but I think
there are better cars. I always liked
the brakes. Interior was pleasing.
The seat became uncomfortable before
it was totalled(I was rear-ended). I
am 6'6 believe it or not. It will fit
two adults up front, but can be
cramped in the rear.


Best Features

Brakes, handling is good(but not excellent). Interior was appealing. Motor is reliable, but not powerful.


Worst Features

The 5SFE is a good motor, but it needed more power and better cruise control. I had a 5-speed manual and at 75-80mph+ it was at 3700-4000 rpms on the highway(not good). That number needed to be lower (around 3k).

Review

I bought my car used but am only the
second owner. I absolutely love my car -- it's
fun to drive, and is very reliable. It has good
acceleration and handles well. Usually I am
the only one in the car, but even when I
have two or three people with me, it is still
easy to drive. Now that my car is ten years
old, some small things have begun to fail,
but nothing I can't live with. The engine is
still going strong, and in fact I only recently
replaced the battery which had been with
the car originally. Definitely recommend as
a car that's fun and keeps its value.


Best Features

It's comfortable, handles easily, and has a great heater - perfect for those cool nights when you still want to drive topless.


Worst Features

It would be nice to put the top up or down while the car is moving instead of getting off the freeway, parking, and then putting the top up or down. The back seat could be a little bigger so that an adult could sit there comfortably.
