2001 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
I owned my car for a little bit less than a year. I had a celica gt-s. This car is very rev happy, and at high rpm fun to drive, but acceleration is terrible. I have never owned a car this small that accelerated so poorly. The style is great, many compliments on the car, and the inside of the car reminds me of a cockpit. however I hydroplaned and flipped my celica. No airbags deployed, but I walked away unhurt. So from my injury aspect the car must be fairly safe, but it may worry you that the airbags are almost impossible to to deploy? If you are wanting a car that you are planning on racing.. this isn't the car for you, but if you just want a fun sleek car, you have found what your want
The styling of the car is nice, and the rev happy "personality". nice stereo on the gts and the gun metal pedals look nice
quicker accleration. WAY TOO SLOW perhaps and the back seat has trouble seating my nine year old sister.
