I've had my 2000 celica since 2006 when I bought it used and it has been amazing. I have had almost no problems with it even though I bought the car with 80,000 miles. Only thing that has happened is the distributor went out at about 100,000 mi, and one of my CV joints went out at the same time( which I highly recommend fixing as soon as it goes out, the car used to turn on its own with the broken one) Besides that though nothing seem to be going wrong my check engine light is one at 150,000 but still runs as smooth and powerful as the day I got it.(most likely O2 sensors)
Good enough room for me at 6'2, and I love that the automatic has the tiptronic shifting system it makes it so much funner to drive.
A larger back seat since I do have a daughter and at 3 she doesn't fit back there. Also more engine power. I had to pour about 6000 dollars into my engine to make it fast
