I have mixed feelings when it comes to the Celica.
Some things I like, others I don't.
I guess I'll start with the good: reliable, looks good, handles great, and ok mpg.
The bad: rides rough, cramped and uncomfortable interior, and is slow as sin.
I'm 5'10" and it feels like I drive a sardine can, absolutely no room.
It doesn't help that you feel every dip or rock in the road through your spine.
You have to run it at redline if you want to get anywhere anytime soon.
Absolutely lackluster straight line performance.
Also the cup holder is useless with the 5-speed, since it occupies the area your elbow is when you go to shift.
Oh, and there is no aftermarket for this car...at all...

Only Toyota. My car has not cost me a
dime in anything other than tires and
one set of spark plugs. Everything
else is original and in excellent
condition. Performs well for such an
economy car. Can't beat the price.

The car is just great so far. Drives like a dream, amazingly stable both at low and high speeds. Very reliable. The only problem I had so far - one of the spark wires came off and I was stupid enough to get it to Toyota dealership where those bastards robbed me for $150 and sold me the wires for $80 that were not even golden!!!! If I would not be that stupid, I could fix it myself within a minute. Other than that - the car is just so nice to drive, doesn't introduce any problems, pretty powerfull even at 120 hp - 'cause it's very light. Would advise everyone to have it. Looks like a dream.
