2002 Toyota Celica Hatchback GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I was excited getting the Celica GT- S. People stopped me to tell me what agreat looking car. Then it snowed. This car handles poorly in inclement weather. It just doesn't hold the road. Trouble keeping car in lane when road has worn pavement tracks. Bottoms out on high drives and catxhes cement stopping blocks in parking lots. Cup fly out of cup holders.

Raise front, better traction in rear, better location of lighter, hard top convertable, more HP

Review

I love my Celica GT-S with the Action Package. It handles great, gets a lot of looks, and hauls tutu. It also has more cargo capacity than any car in it's class which makes it very practical as well. The formula 1 shifters work great and save a lot of clutch work.


Best Features

Action Package Push button shifters Leather interior (custom from dealer)


Worst Features

More Horse Power! :-] You can never have too much!

2002 Toyota Celica Hatchback GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I bought this car 10 months ago and I haven't been disappointed. On the practical side is 30+mpg, reliability, and resale value. Maintenance is a breeze, except for an underside engine cover (not that bad). Acceleration, braking, and handling/suspension are truly outstanding. The 6-speed manual took little time to get used to and is well- tuned for speed shifting. If you want to feel "one with your machine", this is the car for you. Sure-footed and responsive. Finally, the car is a head-turner; people stop in parking lots to look it over. Friends love to go for rides. My wife loves to drive it too.


Best Features

Great gas mileage, awesome braking and handling, head-turning looks.


Worst Features

More durable chip-resistant finish, better visibility when backing up.
