2005 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I love my Celica!!! Even though the front shimmies at speeds over 80 it handles like a dream. It does take a little "umph" to get up and running due to small engine but once going it runs w/the BEST. I average 31mpg in city and love that even more. I only wish I knew about the side airbag option when I bought it. As for reliability ... it's a Toyota, 'nuff said.
Locks for door are located in middle of console making it harder for thieves to jimmie open/break into. Back seats lie flat for more storage
Not sure if would matter since 05 breaks the mold (silly Toyota!!) but intake air valve not in good place.
