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...

My daughter's car, but I get to maintain it and pay for repairs (we split costs) and drive it some.
Not a really fast car, but holds the road really well and starts and runs really well.
Mostly it is fun to drive and it gets about 35 mpg doing it.

Simply put, I love this car! I 0nly wish I could find another one. Zippy, 40+ mpg, 5 speed. Needs a new roof, the aforementioned wear spots developed and a new roof is in the future. Handles like a Porsche, looks beautiful and, well, I could go on and on. I'm always on the lookout for another one.
