2002 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
I bought my Celica in March 2000 and I
have enjoyed it every day since.
Despite a few minor flaws (plastic
interior molding near seats scratches
easily and the powerband is too high),
this is an incredible car. The sound of
the engine (especially after adding a
Rod Millen air intake) is by far my
favorite feature. The layout of the
inside was very well done. Having all
of the controls in reach while still
keeping your hands on the wheel and
stick is very helpful. I definitely
plan on keeping this car for a long
Front end design. Much more room on the
inside than I thought there would be
(very important for someone 6'3"). The
pull of the engine at 6000 RPM.
Better interior materials, better
ability to stay in the powerband.
