2001 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We bought our GT new in 2001. It has been extremely reliable, and is a blast to drive! When engaged in heavy highway traffic you can drop the automatic out of overdrive and power thru traffic. Mileage is awesome, around 34 mpg, and the styling turns heads. I don't understand why this car is being discontinued, as we would sure buy another. There is too much fun to be had at a very reasonable price. Lots of storage with the seats folded down. Good car for two people, not four.


Best Features

Exterior looks and the roomy front seat.


Worst Features

The spoiler creates a huge blind spot.

2001 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This was my first car. Bought it when I was 19. Affordable, easy to drive and sporty looking. Small car could easily fit in small parking spaces. Great for commuting since it is excellent on gas. Great for me and my dog!

2001 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I bought this car new in 2001. I love the 6-speed manual transmission. It's now six years old and I never have any problem with this car nor any major repairs. I am however, diligent about routine maintenance and oil changes, and making sure my car stay fine tuned just like new. Prior to this car, I owned a 1987 white Celica GT-S brought new that served me for for 14 years with 112,000 miles under harsh Midwest weather condition. I love the reliability, performance, affordability and quality of Celica and Toyota in general. It is very sporty in looks and excellent handling. The only thing I hate is the cheap looking dashboard.


Best Features

It hugs the road at turns and at high speed. It picks up very well after second gear. Great gas mileage. My husband loved driving it - he said it handles as good as his old Porsche.


Worst Features

Improve the first gear ratio. It's very low which is a pain during heavy traffic. Bring it back with better lumbar support, quality dashboard (not the cheap plastic looking one), bluetooth included, leather interior, and better dashboard light, quality interiors-no cheap looking stuff.

2001 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Since I bought the car I've had no problems. The only thing I had to change was the tires and brakes, things you normally do when you buy a used car. Also a clutch but that's something an 80000 mile car would need. Everything else works perfectly.


Best Features

The wonderfull handling and its close shifting, the way you sit so low making you feel like you're sitting in the ground.


Worst Features

To bring it back with more horse and low end torque power.
