2002 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Bought it 6 yrs old with 40,000 miles, Toyota certified used. Has been totally reliable, and I get 35-37 mpg, driving mostly highway miles. I love the handling and steering - it feels very nimble, light and capable. The styling is unique and my Celica gets lots of looks and comments. Adequate power, firm but comfortable ride. Really everything you expect from a sports hatchback.
Styling is very unique and bold, both inside and out. Steering and handling. Much better mpg than you'd expect.
You'll wish the cupholders were someplace different. Poor rearward visibility can be annoying.
