2002 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I read all the reviews on all the
magezines. Narrowed my list to 12
models, and test drive them. The
Celica was low on the horsepower list,
but best in suspention and handling.
The power is outstanding for everyday
driving. The gearbox and clutch are
perfect. Lane changes and cornering
are the best part of driving. The
cockpit feels the best of any car I
drive from Honda, Acura, Mitsubishi...
The seats are low and give the go cart
handling feel. I didn't want the best
0-60 time, but I do want to take
corners at 40 mph. This car does
exactly that. Off the lights, it's no
slug. I've blown away some really nice
cars. BUY ONE!!!
The fighter jet like cockpit.
7000 rpm redline.
Smooth ride at 100+ mph.
Quality and reliability.
