Not too sporty but man is it reliable

2002 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
Celica is my wife's car prior 2 us meeting and we've purchased 2 newer cars since marrying. Having kids I've tired to sell this 2door however after 2 years of spending $ on the newer cars, this celica has the most miles but 20% of the cost of maintaining the other cars. It's underpowered, doesn't have enough torque, and has a very disappointing rt=rear blind spot, horrible rear seats, uncomfortable for tall drivers, slopping dash where u can't put anything on. I found other small cars better and faster like the Mazda 3, Corolla, Vibe. Pros are it's nimble, good looking, good gas mileage, easy to maintain, awesome on curves.
Looks, nimbleness, racing pedals, big trunk for sml car, ability to drive manual from steering wheel controls
fix horrible rt/rear blind spot, no small car should have blind spot
