2000Celica long-term test
By Bobbi on
2000 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback
The 2000 Toyota Celica delivers in the sports category of coupes under $30,000. Unlike it's predecessor, this car has been designed with performance as the primary focus. Both the GT and GTS trim deliver stout acceleration and power- combined with lightness and near neutal handling. Remember, the GT is only a mere 300lbs heavier than the featherweight MR2 Spyder.
Best features include scalpel-like handling and cornering ability, high-revving peppy engine and aggressive body design.
The car shows the lack of quality materials and overall build quality, fit and finish, that has been the traditional herald of Toyota cars. Also, the car delivers a punishing amount of tire, wind and engine noise, especially with long distance driving.
