Owner of car six years!

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Celica

I bought this car used from a dealership at 40k mileage. I have never really had any problems with this car. Only problem I have is it is super slow. Other than that the car is wonderful to have. Great for a young teen who doesn't have a lot of money to spend on a new car.

A+ all the way!!!

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Celica

Since day one this vehicle has been a blast to drive. It rides tight and performs great, although a few minor adds like exhaust and an air intake will go along way - power wise. I've had nothing but comments on my car and everyone I take for a ride in it almost instantly wants one. I owned a Z-28 t-top Camaro before my Celica and now own a newer convertible Camaro pushing over 300HP as well as an Eclipse GT pushing over 240HP and my favorite of the 3 is still the 4 cylinder Celica GT.

My Celica is the best vehicle I have ever owned. It holds to the road and is very fun to drive. I have had no problems with this car. I still get complements on it everytime I go out. They are great to "fix up" with aftermarket parts, and they will run forever!

Favorite car!

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Celica

It took me a while to find the exact car I wanted...and it was completely worth the wait! This was the best car I EVER had! We've been together for 7- 8 years and it's still in EXCELLENT condition!




Wow!

I'm a college student and bought the car 2 years ago. Good decision! I've had absolutely no problems with it even though I put 25k/year on it. All I did was teh recommended belts at 90K and had to do the front rotors at 120K. Looks great, drives great. I must say I wish it had more power. I live in Mass and it handles the winter weather just fine, no winter tires. There's so few of them out there everyone thinks it's new.




Unwavering relaibility

This car has lived a tough life and yet continues to perform flawlessly. Though I perform meticulous maintenance and I am fanatical about keeping proper records, it has been driven hard. Though the years it has never given me a single problem outside of normal wear items. Even most of those are still untouched: for instance brakes, wiper blades, dome and tail lights are all original.
