1998 Toyota Celica Hatchback GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

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 miles


Favorite Features

Quick turning, easy of parking the stereo.


Suggested Improvements

I wish she could get all of the features of her 1986. Am-Fm stereo- Lumbar and laderal seat support. Will she buy another only if they have more accesories available. We looked at 2000s. We did like the stripped down feel of car.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Good handling, not just for basic driving, has kept me out of trouble on the California freeways. Comfortable. Good looks. Powered sunroof doesn't make it a convertible, but very enjoyable.


Suggested Improvements

Valve that controls idling has failed twice, the only significant defect -- replaced once under warranty and once at 45,000 miles.

Review

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.

Review

No major problems with my 1998 Celica and its over 5 years old. Of course, that's expected with all Toyotas. Drives like a champ.


Favorite Features

Love the sunroof. Good acceleration for a 4-cylinder. Love how the radio area is faced towards the driver, creating the feel of a cockpit.


Suggested Improvements

My door cloth has come unglued twice, but other than that, nothing bad about the car.
