2000 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback


I bought this car used with 82K miles on it. It drives like new, and never ceases to amaze me with its grip on the road. It is practically as if it were moving on rails, point it where you like, and it hugs the road while making the turn. Add that to Toyota reliability, and the combo is hard to beat. The automatic transmission is adequate for my practical needs, but for spirited driving, I would have preferred having a manual. The car has plenty of get up and go, but I somehow miss the vrooom of the lower gears that I could have got out of the 140HP engine (which is pretty dang good when you combine it with the light and small car that it is) with a stick.

Best Features

Timeless exterior, road-hugging, bucket seats, superb seat shape and finish

Worst Features

Headlights lamps are hard to get at, panel near the seat belts get scratched by the belt buckles, people turn to look at you more often than you would strictly like.
