Mine is a 99, the last year for the convertible. I love it. I have had no mechanical problems and I am up to 85K miles. My only complaints are the drink holders are too small and there is a lot of noise inside the car. But that is usually a problem in convertibles.

Just picked this car up in early
November. Very clean black GT
Convertible (Manual Trans).
No complaints at all, just some minor
fixes to make with the seals where the
rear and front windows meet.
This car handles like a dream. It is
a tad bit underpowered for its weight,
but it grips the road so good, that
you can just whip it around for some
real fun driving.
The car is very sharp, and becoming
increasingly rare as time goes on.
Standard features from Toyota include
a decent stereo (with 75k, the door
panels do rattle a bit). Easy to use
climate controls, glass rear window,
and convenient cruise control
Would wish for a little better gas
milage 25mpg overall.

This car is awesome! The body styling
(especially with the top down) is very
sexy, yet classic. It's not very fast,
but handles incredibly well around
corners-you don't even have to slow
down! This car is made for cruising
down Lake Shore Drive with the top
down, not racing in the Indy 500! The
stereo system is also exceptional. It's
got 8 speakers that will blow you away,
even with the top down! I will never
get rid of this car...ever!

I love this car, it's fun to drive. I
LOVE this car!! The gas mileage is
reasonable for a car of this size (27 -
30 mpg). It's very reliable. I did
have one problem that I have not seen
written anywhere. The motors for the
top burned out and the car was only 4
years old, I was told when I replaced
them ($1,000) that this is a common
problem with this model. Something to
think about with any convertible.

I've had my Convertible Celica for
almost 4 years and it's been an
excellent buy. Never had a problem with
it. Great on the highway and in
congestion. If it wasn't for the fact
that I'm leaving the US, I would have
never even thought of selling it. I
will miss it.
