1994 Toyota Celica ST 2dr Coupe


Review

Driven daily. It is now in the 300K mile club. Despite the scratches and dents, this car is fun to drive. Great on gas! Powerful 1.8 L engine and great handling. I just love this car, still looks great. You would not even think it has 300,000 miles. The engine still purring. Low maintenance, great reliable car. Way to go TOYOTA!


Favorite Features

Gas milage, dependable, fun to drive!!

1994 Toyota Celica ST 2dr Coupe


Review

I have had this car for almost 8 years. I bought it used with 70,000 miles on it. The only thing have had to replace is the clutch at 108K miles. I am now at 167K and no problems except I need the valve seals replaced due to age. This car has been extremely reliable, never broken down, never runs bad. The a/c and heating system is superb. It handles like a sports car and is a pleasure to drive. I love that it is a 13 year old car and still looks very stylish.


Favorite Features

Body style, sunroof, comfortable seats, acceleration, dependability, overall look of the car holds the stand of time people don't believe how old it is when I tell them. Very sharp looking especially with some 18" chrome rims on it!


Suggested Improvements

A little more room in between the shifter and cup holder, different material fabric to line the roof with - that's it, love everything else.

Review

I have owned this car for almost seven years. It has been incredibly reliable, with excellent gas mileage and very little maintainance. Regular oil changes, tire rotations and upkeep have made this car an amazing driving experience. I am sorry to sell it but have found a new Scion tC to take it's place.


Suggested Improvements

The paint has begun to fade and oxidize.

Review

I've had this car for almost 11 years now and never had any major repair work done. Oil changes, new tires, sunroof motor for $50 and the required high mileage check up. Been a great strong dependable car and its still worth $2600 according to Edmunds.com. Can't beat it. Toyota's run forever!! Thanks Toyota!


Favorite Features

Sunroof, body style, steering, security of the solid build of the car.


Suggested Improvements

Review

At 109,000 the vehicle had its first repair job other than regular maintenance. The AC valve was replaced. Original front brake pads were replaced at 70,000 miles. Original rear shoes lasted to 92,000 miles. Engine and transmission still perform well. Oil is still clean at oil change time. Has never needed oil added between changes.


Favorite Features

Handles much like a sport car. Corners well. Has a true "feel of the road". Excellent gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

None.

Review

I bought it at 82,000 and it's now at 105,000 in 9 months. The only mechanical problem I have had is a leaking oil pressure sensor which costed me $20 to replace. This car runs great for 105,000 miles and doesn't have any hint of problems.


Favorite Features

Reliability!!!! Toyota knows how to build a car that will last.


Suggested Improvements

They need to make new Celicas with the 1994 body style.

Review

Always mistaken for Jaguar, Mercedes, never Toyota. BREATHTAKING in silver metallic. Gas mileage consistently 32MPG! Michelin Symmetry tires correct road noise & ride comfort. Got this car, GET THESE TIRES. Rides like Lexus SC300. Specialty air filter = power boost even wife can feel. At 90k miles only Prblm: Rear Struts at 30k, rear wheel life. Complaints about power, only an issue from standstill (long first gear TOYOTA!) After getting going, you’ll outmaneuver any car on road in any real world circumstance not putting lives of yourself & others in danger. Excellent resale value. Friends with Probes & Eclipses long since bit the reliability dust. My Celica drives & looks new


Favorite Features

Front Facia. Front headlamps. Precise Steering. Gas Mileage. Resale Value. Paint Job. Constant Oggles and questions from strangers on a 9 year old sub-10 grand car. Hearing friends and family pay more for less distinct less reliable cars.


Suggested Improvements

Better original tires. Slight power boost. Bigger wheels on the ST to totally fill the wheel wells.

Review

I bought this car with 1800 miles on it in 1995. Nearly 7 years and 171,000 miles later, I couldn't be more pleased. Aside from oil changes and regular preventative maintenance (e.g. timing belt). I have had to make ONE repair. I had to replace the front wheels at 150,000. If you can believe it, I have only replaced the front brake pads once and never touched the exhaust. Amazing. And the car still gets 30 mpg and runs quiet and strong.


Favorite Features

Styling and durablility.


Suggested Improvements

As reliable as the car has been, it is a little underpowered - but still fun to drive.

Review

Celica is the best handling car in SCCA SoloII H Stock class. It has won H stock national SoloII titles in 94, 96, 97, 98 and 99. A sports car is supposed to handle not just going fast. Celica is not really fast, but its asskicking handling can sure make up its power. Iv own this car for 4 years. The only and only thing I replaced was the engine bell. Other than that, this car is trouble free.


Favorite Features

kickass handling and style. Celica ST only weight 2395lb. Although, the back seat and trunk is small, yet the over all trunk space and back seat are still much larger than most sports compact cars like Prelude, MX6, Eclips, Integra and so on,thanks to the wide body style.


Suggested Improvements

For a sports coupe, the back seat is really not necessary. But having small back space is the only thing I can think about.
