When I was looking to buy a car I wanted a cute sports car to take with me to college. I was originally looking at Hyundai Tiburons and when I saw the Celica online I knew that's what I wanted. For only having a 4 cylinder engine it has nice boost of speed when you hit the gas. I have had no problems with mine and I bought it used with 48,000 miles. My car always gets looks by people who see it. :)

I have bought Toyota Celica 2004 GT in 2004. Not much but oil change for the first 2 years. After that the car becomes a money draining machine. Brake changes; Tire changes; Clutch changes; Now, Transmission change - burn out in the middle of no where after 5 years of driving (yes the transmission oil had been changed before). The car is reliable until the expiring mileage of 250000 km or 5 years. I guess Toyota has to make money and we have to buy a new car every five year to have reliable transportation means. Oh, forgot to mention that Check engine lights stay On and I still pass emission test in Ontario. The computer for emission in Celica is very tight.

I have had my car for almost two years
and I can't seem to keep my hands off
of it. It is fun to drive, extremly
comfy, looks great, handles great, has
low gas miledge, and could be very
easy to "fix up" if thats what you're

The Toyota Celica is very stylish,

The Toyota Celica is an awesome and
fun car to drive. It is also ONE of
FIVE Japanese cars know as "Pocket
Rockets". It has a low price for
anyone to buy. The gas mileage is very
good to. It gets BETTER gas mileage
than the Honda Civic. Sure the Civic
is cheaper, but who would want a car
they wouldn't enjoy. In the Celica you
can have it in a low gear the on a
cerve you shift up and it will rocket
you around the curve.There is no
possible way to be ripped off when
buying a NEW Celica.
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.
