I am about a week away from turning in
my 2000 Celica. My overall experience
is that I loved the looks and the
handling but the acceleration has been
left on the roadside. The longer and
the more I have driven it the slower it
seems to be. At this point forget
pulling out into to traffic- you'll get
run over by the time your up to speed
(even using tiptronic mode). It has
to "warm up" for about 15 mins before
it performs the way you want it.
Especially in the winter or when it is
hot and humid out. Great car but NEEDS
more power to keep up with the looks. I
would definitely get a manual if I got
Exterior, looks of the gas/brake
peddle, flip pocket above the radio,
windows and locks in the center, the
fold down seats with the removable
cover, well just about everything!
