2002 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car mainly as a daily
commuter, but find myself looking for
canyons to drive through just to enjoy
the drive! This car has awesome
reliability, gas mileage (over 35
consistently), handling, and brakes.
Plus it has a fantastic look - at a
time when almost every other car on the
road looks like everything else in its
class or by its manufacturer, the
celica stands out as completely unique.
Fantastic suspension steering and
brakes. I also love this engine's
flexibility - it can be a screamer or a
great low speed commuter, and gets
incredible gas mileage either way! Love
the moonroof, love the looks.
Make this engine a 2 liter - could use
10% more hp and torque. Change the
spoiler a little to improve the rear
view. ABS standard would be nice,
considering it is a sport coupe.
