Great....

Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback w/Action Package (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Great car but horrible blind spots. Its very difficult to see out the rear window, especially over the spoiler. Side windows offer even less visibility. You have to get used to driving using solely your mirrors really.




Love my celica !!!!!!!

best car!!! i'm not really a sports car type of person yet when i saw this car i loved it. Because it is very low it takes a while to get used to, but afterwards you'll enjoy driving it and will never want to get out. As a person who is starting college and has to drive back and forth everyday i feel confident because the car feels very secure and the braking is excellent.

I love my Celica! The handling and acceleration are great making this a super fun car to drive. I like the fact that Toyota doesn't churn out a lot of Celicas and therefore, you don't see many of them on the road. A large person would probably not be comfortable in this car. I have the manual version but test drove an automatic as well -- DO NOT BUY THE AUTOMATIC! It is not nearly as exhilarating or fun to drive.




Great car!

I love my Toyota Celica. I was the happiest person alive when I finally bought my Celica. I love everything about it. I just hope it was a little faster.




A real blast to drive

where should i start? well let's go with the exterior, when you buy the Celica either GT or GTS get the action package to make it look more fierce. The wing especially looks awesome. The interior with the action package looks and feels like racing bucket seats. At first you may even think the cloth seats have gel in them. tons of standard feats. and room for four but obviously real drivers want to be with theyre car more often than with people packed in there. every corner is like a dream come true and if anyone likes corners, then the celica is the way to take them out even at 90mph.

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.
