2000 Toyota Celica Hatchback GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I owned a used '87 Celica, then bought a new 2000 Celica four years ago. I still love my car, and get lots of compliments on it. Reliability is superb, handling is awesome, it's fun to drive, yet comfortable, and it looks really nice. In addition to some comsmetic upgrades, I have upgraded the intake, exhaust, shifter, wheels/tires, and added a front strut-tower brace to make it even more fun to drive.

People who complain about blind-spots need to adjust their side-view mirrors properly; true, it doesn't have the wide-open expanses of glass that some cars have, so it takes some getting used to, but I have no blind-spots.


Best Features

Handling, responsive performance, looks. Hatchback provides good storage capacity. Reliability.


Worst Features

Could use a bit more power, particularly low-end torque. The body makes a few rattles that I could do without.

Review

The car provides too many blind spots.
Had to add mirrors in order to change
lanes a little safer. The back seats
were even unconfortable for my 6-13
year old nieces. They hated the car
even though it looked nice.


Best Features

Driving performance was excellent.


Worst Features

Better side view.

Review

I purchased the car from Poway Toyota
last September 2003, which makes this
car just 7 months old. I have already
installed Strut Tower Braces on the
front upper and lower, and on the rear,
Titanium Shifters, race pedals, and an
Injen Short Ram Air Intake which added
15 more horses on my stock 143 horses.
The car is beautifully designed, and I
planned to keep it that way except
probably for a 19'AXIS Hagen wheels on
a Pirelli PZero Tires and APR wide-body
kit. And yes, I also replaced that ugly
stock FM Antenna that Toyota had on all
Celicas with a rubber mounter high-flex
high performance racing antenna.


Best Features

The dashoboard design is excellent, I like the headlights and the HID features, and I like the aerodynamic styling. I have driven the car at a 135MPH speed against a 2002 Lexus GS300 and within a heartbeat, the Lexus was all covered with dust on from my rear.


Worst Features

I love High-Performance intakes, I just hope Toyota comes up with TRD wide tube intakes to suck more air, and have 18'rims on the action package. The celica looks cool without that annoying rear spoiler.

Review

This car rocks....it has great pickup
for a 4 cylinder. The only problems I
find are that the headlights are very
hard to change due to limited space.
Otherwise....this is one of the
greatest cars I've owned.


Best Features

My favorite feature is definately the moonroof and CD player.


Worst Features

Improvements should include a little more space under the hood. It's hard to get to certain items that are normally easy to change...ex...headlights

2000 Toyota Celica Hatchback GT-S 2dr Hatchback


Review

My 2000 GT-S has a little over 40,000
miles on it, and I'm still lovin' it.
The car looks great and is one of the
best-handling FWD cars out there.
Buyers should be aware that the engine
on the GT-S can be a little finicky.
Like most Japanense sport coupes, you
have to rev quite high for substantial
power. The benefits are power on-
demand while retaining excellent gas
mileage(30+).


Best Features

Styling, handling, performance, hatchback utility, Toyota quality and reliability


Worst Features

Rearward visibility takes some getting used to; suspension may be too stiff for some; OEM CD player is lousy
