This is my fourth Celica and all have been great cars.
Good power and handling, great gas mileage (about 29 mpg overall), and reliability that other car makers can only dream of.
It's nice to be low to the ground in a fast car!
It has a pretty smooth ride and is quieter than most at speed.
Not many people buy these so it's rare to see another one during a week.
I don't want to sell this one I've got as there just isn't a car I'd rather have!
With over 175k, it runs like new and is close to new in looks as well.
I have the automatic and love it!

Car has been highly reliable, as have been all the Celicas I've owned. It is great to drive (assuming you're happy with front wheel drive), taking me happily down California Route 1 at California highway speeds. Surprisingly good trunk space has handled Christmas trees, Nordic track exerciser and other large items. Very good interior layout. Comfortable seats, but low for people in poor shape.

The car is stylish and fun to drive. It's reliable and can be counted on to be zippy when needed in the 5-speed manual. The interior gadgets are not always of the utmost quality, but it's easily overlooked for the overall quality of the car.

This car has been in our family since it rolled off the assembly line and we've all fought to drive it. Nothing is more fun than dropping the top on a sunny day and flying through all five speeds. The leather is still in great condition and the styling seems to get better with age; I get asked all the time what kind it is. Of course, it's Toyota reliable. So much fun and so many miles left to drive!

My wife fell in love with her first one
and she continues to like every new one
that we buy. She likes the ability to
park it almost anywhere-carry loads of
all sizes and shapes and adjust the
radio to a particular type of music.
She especially likes the relliability.
Never had a recall replaced the usual
items tire- blades, etc. It has had
regular maintaince, change oil 3000-4000
