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

Review

This car is really pathetic when it comes to 0-60 speed. It is so slow off the line if feels like you might be in reverse. A 4 cyl just doesn't cut it and while it does pick up after you hit 15mph or so, it is embarrasing because the 96 Geo Metro that was next to you at the light is already down the street hanging a left. Throw a V-6 in this and another 50 horsepower and Toyota might be on to something. For now, save your money for a 300ZX or the new Mazada RX-8 and get a real car.

Favorite Features

Outside styling and stylish inside.

Suggested Improvements

Pull whimpy high reving engine and get some low end torque so that you can actually peel out.
