This is the second Celica I have had,
the first one being a 2000. I leased
the 2000 and was determined to get
another Celica due to the reliability
of this vehicle. In the four years I
leased it, this car was the best all
wise, and just all around FUN!!! I put
my seal of approval on this great car,
with the knowledge that Toyota will
stop making them within the next couple
of years....so sad!!!

I love this car so far; however, there
are some downfalls. The paint does
chip very easily, despite the extra
clear coat that was added. This is
very upsetting since I take excellent
care of the car and wash it at least
every other week. The back window
creates a huge blind spot. The door
paneling scratches easily and shows
marks. The radio could be better.
There is not much bass at all!Other
than that I have had good
experiences. The front seat is very
comfortable. The fuel economy is
amazing! I average about 35.5 with
city and hwy combined. The body is
beautiful. Action pkg is a must.
Very fun to drive. Controls are easy
to locate and use.

This is the best car I've owned. The
dealership was not to orginized, but I
really enjoy my car. Hopefully the new
management there will improve the
customer service. They sure due have
High-intensity discharge headlights are now optional on all 2004 Toyota Celica models.
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.
