1999 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Convertible


Review

this car is amazing! the convertable
is just rare enough to catch people's
attention, not to mention its great
looks. this car is by far the most
amazing car i've owned.


Best Features

personally, i love the exterior. i love the body shape.


Worst Features

i only wish this car had a built in garage door opener- then it would be beyond perfect.

1999 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Convertible


Review

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!


Best Features

Body style (1999 was the last year of the classic look before Toyota changed the body style and ruined it!), handling, stereo system, great gas mileage.


Worst Features

The only complaints are the performance could be better, maybe put a 6 cylinder in it instead of a 4, and the seats could be more comfortable-they are very stiff and hard. Add a couple of inches of padding and they would be perfect!

1999 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I absolutely love this car!! I bought
it about 9 months ago with 50,000
miles. It was a Florida car so the car
was perfect. Haven't had any problems
with it, I had a choice between the 99
and a 2001 and I chose the 99, the body
of the car is a nicer design(classy), I
really dislike the newer one, and the
visibility on the new one stinks. My
first car was a 89 celica and I loved
it too. If you want a car that looks
gorgeous, drives nice, is reliable, and
is at a decent price this is the car
for you. I also like that there aren't
many out there, it's a very hard car to
find, unlike the new one.


Best Features

body style, interior and exterior, large trunk for a sports car. The car is downright sexy and I get a ton of compliments on it!


Worst Features

cupholders and radio speakers could be alittle bit better (the door speakers need some insulation around them or something because when you turn up the music if it has alot of bass it muffles in the door). Also alittle more horsepower would be cool, say 200HP

Review

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.


Best Features

It's so smooth to drive. The brakes are really incredible!!!! The handling exceptional.


Worst Features

More reliable motors in the convertible top.

1999 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I have had my car for a long time and I
have only had one problem. The Cruise
control switch failed and I had to get
it replaced. I had it replaced by the
toyota dealer in Spirit Lake IA and I
took about an hour and about $200, It
was very distressing because I have
never had anything else go wrong in the
45000 miles I have driven it. I love
the car, but my husband hates it and
asks me to sell it almost daily. It is
very small and has almost no head room-
perfect for me because I am 5-4. My
sons love the car and think I should
just give it to them. Fat Chance. I
would buy it again in a minute.


Best Features

Hatch gives me enough room to carry a bike or a large dog when seats are folded down.


Worst Features

Make the car more sound proof. It has a lot of road noise.
