While I have had this car it has been great. I haven't had any problem with it and i have found myself doing a whole lot more traveling too.

This car is extremely fun to drive (although some might say you need a 6- speed to fully enjoy it) The cabin noise is a little loud though and bumps/potholes aren't taken very well, but this can be expected with a low- riding small car.




Awesome little car

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Celica GTS 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Bought an automatic, kept it for two years and then traded it in on a manual. Both are very nice. Manual is harder to get the seat set just right, as you have to reach the peddle. Regardless, manual is the only way to go.

What's New for 2004

High-intensity discharge headlights are now optional on all 2004 Toyota Celica models.

Introduction

Before the current generation arrived, Celicas were often chastised for being slow, overweight and a little on the expensive side. But not anymore, as the latest Celica is a sharp performer that's as nimble as it is stylish. Designed in California, the Celica's cab-forward shape features a high-fashion look with race-car design elements. Sharp-edge panels, dramatic plunging curves, a tall tail and a radically lowered front fascia create stark contrasts. In high-performance GT-S trim, the 2004 Toyota Celica is the martial arts action hero of sport coupes. It is quick, nimble and an absolute joy to drive on curvy roads thanks to ultraresponsive steering and a tightly controlled suspension. Used for commuting, however, the Celica's somewhat stiff ride and high-strung powertrain can take their toll. If all you want is a sporty look, more relaxed cruisers like the Hyundai Tiburon or the Mitsubishi Eclipse might be better choices. Or, if you want something in the middle, the Acura RSX is another coupe worth considering. Those cars aside, the 2004 Toyota Celica is a solid performer that will rarely leave you wishing for more when the road turns twisty.
