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

Review

This car takes to long to get going. When you punch the gas pedal, nothing happens until about 5 seconds later (when you are at 7000 rpm). I know that is sort of the point, and it does corner great and can accelerate through turns great, but I still feel that it makes the car feel underpowered and sluggish off the line. At least a 6cyl Grand Am can bark the tires when you floor it. Apparently a manual transmission in this car is a must since you probably have to rev it up to about 7,000 rpm and drop the clutch to have a good start off the line. I'm just disappointed because I wanted something sporty, but this car just doesn't have any real oomph.

Best Features

Sporty brake pedals and gas pedals, good braking and handling

Worst Features

Needs more horsepower, low end torque, anything, a 91 geo metro can beat this car off the line, maybe not win but its embarassing
