The best i have ever

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback w/Action Package (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

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 around in quality,performance,design,gas milage 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!!!




More ups than downs

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

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.




The best car!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
