2000 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback


Review

I have owned this car since new, body
#251. This has been an exceptional car
with the only mechanical problem being a
belt tensioner that squeals a bit on
cold wet days (Toyota has a Service
Bulletin, and I should have had this
replaced under warranty). This car
feels so tightly put together, I
honestly think I'll have it for another
decade. Its economical on gas and
insurance but delivers real sports car
fun. Handling and braking are
exceptional (corvette territory).
Acceleration could be better but 0-60 in
the low 7 sec range is just fine. Sixth
gear on a long highway trip is a
relaxing idle at 80mph. Highly stable
even at triple digit speeds (you'll
never hit top end... 155mph)


Best Features

Six-speed manual, supportive seats, great stereo, supererior fit & finish in and out! Being able to 'play' with cars of 3 times the price. Cornering is in super-car territory, braking is unreal. This car inspires confidence behind the wheel. I feel very safe knowing I can outmaneuver any trouble.


Worst Features

Handling is superb, and the engine pulls hard, but only at very high rpms. The engine has split personality, behaving like the standard economy 1.8 liter until you hit 6250rpms, and the big cam engages... then hang on! The looks inspire every boy-racer to challenge me at every stop lite... tedious.

Review

I just bought this car and I love it. Its def a head turner and for me it moves..i previously drove a Madza 626 and a Nissan Maxima. This is my first sporty car. I can't get enough of it. The interior hugs you and is very comfy and the moon roof is my favorite part! I'm happy the back seat is small..I never have to drive when we go out!


Best Features

Moon roof, interior seating, small back seat (lol), auto lamps, center console window/lock controls


Worst Features

rear blind spots, auto antenna, better radio, heated seats.

Review

My 2000 Celica now has 93,700 miles and
it still drives/rides like it's brand
new. It has had absolutely no problems
whatsoever. For the money, it cannot
be beat. The Celica combines good
looks, good performance, great gas
mileage and spectacular reliability.
Few cars can offer what the Celica
offers for the price. I have no plans
to get rid of this car until it falls
down in the road, which may take many
more years. I couldn't be more happy
with a car than I am with this one.
Highly recommended!


Best Features

Looks, gas mileage and superb reliability.


Worst Features

It needs more power. It's a shame that the car has such sleek looks, yet lacks in power. I suppose Toyota wanted to keep the car economical so they had to sacrifice a bit of power.
