Great in the beginning

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


I bought this car brand new in 2001. I loved it when I first bought it but after a while the car started acting up. One problem after another and there's a long list of problems but some of them are: trunk started rattling, the brake caliper on the rear driver side kept putting too much pressure on the pads and it would wear out more than the others. The DRL sensor also messed up. They also had a recall on the headlights. I'm not an aggressive driver or anything but I've put about 86,000 miles on it and the engine block cracked. I quickly trashed this car after that because I really hated it. So much for Toyota's reliability

Best Features

Leather seats, tight suspension.

Worst Features

Lots of things. Take out the daytime running lights, more space in the engine (it's too crammed & hard to replace bulbs). Good thing they stopped making it.
