2003 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Very fun car, at first I bought an 2000 Acura Integra Type-R but I didn't like it despite it's pure performance, I had bought my mom a 02 Celica GT-S Panasonic Edition and it felt so much better just to ride in that car and it had some good features. I do enjoy my 03 GT-S quite a bit, superb handling which is really important, unique look, great interior design and comfy fitting seats. It is an overpriced vehicle with lacking torque but in balance it has good resale value and reliability which is more important. A downside to this vehicle is the blind spots, I can no way see out of my left rear window..


Favorite Features

Unique styling, percise handling, short shifts,


Suggested Improvements

More torque, power seats, new rims, blindspots. The only thing I would actually want to be seen changed is give it more torque or high gain in low end rpm so it accelerates a bit faster like the Integra Type-R.

2003 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Comparing this 2003 model to the previous '99 model, the rpm redline is lower, which lowers performance in acceleration, which ticks me off, now toyota was stupid for doing this,i want my old celica back dam it.


Favorite Features

I love the VVTL-I, becuase it is the strongest variable valve timing i ever felt in a car 25K and less.


Suggested Improvements

RASE THE FREAKING REDLINE!!!!

Review

The Celica is great fun to drive, gets a fairly good gas mileage and has lots of room in the trunk esp when you put the rear seats down. A wonderful car for those of us without little kids ;-)


Favorite Features

It's yellow!


Suggested Improvements

I do like the old more round shape of the car better.

Review

I Love this car so much. Although it's slow at first when accelerating but after 6800 RPM's you can feel the rush of a great amount of speed. It kinda catches your opponent off gaurd. I love this car. It's better then my Eclipse. oh yeah...smoking mustang gts is fun.


Favorite Features

The interior and exterior looks. It gives off a very fast looking apperance.


Suggested Improvements

maybe if you could get the boost a little bit lower RPM's then 6800.
