Review

I got it with 87k miles on it, and within a month I noticed it was going through a lot of oil. It turns out there's a known oil consumption issue with these 1zz-fe engines. There's a website that even sells over sized pistons specifically for this issue. I rebuilt the engine, because the car is beautiful, I love the interior, and it's a blast to drive. It's like driving a go kart that can go on the free way.. However, this engine is awful. I'm at 162k miles and now the head gasket is blown, and I can't go anywhere without it overheating. If I had to do it over, I would've gotten a GT-S model.

Review

This is a very nice car. Getting from point A-B hasn't been an issue for me. Very reliable & fun-to-drive. Haven't had any mechanical problems and absolutely love the durability of this car. Has tight/firm Handling & is almost "go-kart" like. Great on gas and has effortless style points. I chose the 6-speed manual to better my gas consumption and wouldn't recommend anything else(especially if you're looking to enhance performance). I have (ashy)grey cloth interior that has held nicely for 13 years now. All electrical units have lasted and honestly haven't had a bad experience with the car yet. All-together a great, fun, and exciting car to drive down the highway. 2 thumbs up!


Best Features

Favorite Feature is the manual stick-shift. Love the handling and torque i receive in 2-4th gear. The electric power windows and cruise-control are nice as well.


Worst Features

Get a K&N intake & Magnaflow exhaust. You'll gain about 10-15 hp & receive great gas mileage.

I bought my 2000 celica gt-s with 150xxx miles on it, and it still drives great!! Even though its 12 years old, it looks super sporty and I get compliments on it all the time. Its so fun to drive especially on curvy roads. Gets great excelleration and I love the fact that is a 6 speed. Excellent reliability.. nothing has gone wrong with it whatsoever!!
