2002 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I was a little skeptical, but bought a
2002 Celica GT "certified used" with 6K
miles on it.
Without a lot of options, I got it
cheap for a commuter car to keep miles
off my more expensive and gas thirsty
Land Rovers. It's really a blast to
drive. Not too much power so you get
carried away, but still fun getting up
to the speed limit just a little faster
than most. Great little car. It's no
Bimmer or Benz, but adequate in all
It's been called a "chick car" but I
can think of worse things than having a
car that women appreciate.
Great sounding engine. Functional scoop
(should be a tad bigger).
Stereo is terrible. ABS should be
standard. Should tame down the
headlight shape a bit and drop the rear
deck height a bit. Cupholders are
worthless when trying to shift.
