2000 Toyota Celica Hatchback GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

i bought this car needing a lot of work 10 years and 166k on her when i got her needed struts a cat. tires brakes and belts alternator and battery replaced for preventative as well but toyotas are tanks so doing all this work in my opinion made economical sense i got a good deal on it (2k less than others around here) and spent 1.7k on what it needed (battery and alternator not needed just preventative) so i got a good deal now that its fixed it's a beast i put flowmaster exhaust when cat. was put on it sounds great but i don't know who neglected their maintenance on this car i wanna kick there behind (for the kids reading) bc its a great car and i'm babying her back 2 life lucas inoil gas tranny and kn filter


Favorite Features

sporty handling, over all design with bass turns a lot of heads projection headlights are cool good power for only 1.8 L140 hp engine


Suggested Improvements

bigger backseat better clearcoat (shows finger prints) spoiler on all models better headlight assembly quality, otherwise great little sports car for the money

Review

This is a very nice car. Getting from point A-B hasn't been an issue for me. Very reliable & fun-to-drive. Haven't had any mechanical problems and absolutely love the durability of this car. Has tight/firm Handling & is almost "go-kart" like. Great on gas and has effortless style points. I chose the 6-speed manual to better my gas consumption and wouldn't recommend anything else(especially if you're looking to enhance performance). I have (ashy)grey cloth interior that has held nicely for 13 years now. All electrical units have lasted and honestly haven't had a bad experience with the car yet. All-together a great, fun, and exciting car to drive down the highway. 2 thumbs up!


Favorite Features

Favorite Feature is the manual stick-shift. Love the handling and torque i receive in 2-4th gear. The electric power windows and cruise-control are nice as well.


Suggested Improvements

Get a K&N intake & Magnaflow exhaust. You'll gain about 10-15 hp & receive great gas mileage.

Review

I am sorry they don't make these cars anymore. I just totaled mine after 202,000 miles. This car never had any major issues except the sunroof started leaking. Very reliable. I hate my new car and wish I could buy a new celica.

I bought my 2000 celica gt-s with 150xxx miles on it, and it still drives great!! Even though its 12 years old, it looks super sporty and I get compliments on it all the time. Its so fun to drive especially on curvy roads. Gets great excelleration and I love the fact that is a 6 speed. Excellent reliability.. nothing has gone wrong with it whatsoever!!

Review

Ever since I bought this car it has been nothing but trouble catalytic converter died 3 days after I got it dealership claimed no knowledge about issue, had to replace o2 sensors 3 times in 1 month after that and it had a bad coil which led to another expensive repair it eats spark plugs and has to have premium ones for some reason parts for gt are more expensive than gts and now the computer is having issues I am selling asap


Favorite Features

exterior style/looks handling and power for small engine


Suggested Improvements

computer, Toyota reliability exhaust system and evap/egr system basically better quality is needed for toyota no wonder they stopped making this car
