2003 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I've now owned this car for more than 2 1/2 years, and I still love it! It's a blast to drive, very nimble in tight parking situations, and it has decent acceleration from a dead stop. With todays gas prices, it's gas sipping quality is very much appreciated by this happy Celica owner. Reliability has been great, and when I clean it up, it still looks brand new. If you want a good used car that looks sporty, handles well, and gets good gas mileage, you'll love this car!
I love the sporty looks - it looks fast sitting still! I also like the hatchback feature. A 16' extension ladder (8' in length when not extended) actualy fits in this car. Other good features are nice cornering, nice hwy speed acceleration, and very economical.
More seat padding; be able to raise driver seat higher for short people; a few more inches in length to get 10' long lumber completely inside - as it is, only a 9'6' boards will fit. Re-design of the unappealing tail lamps.
