The car I always wanted

2002 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


I originally drove this car to rule it out. Instead I found the car I always wanted. Fun to drive, corners on rails. I love watching other cars try to keep up with me in the twisties. I've done a couple of trips of 14+ hours straight driving and the seats stay comfortable. Back seats are almost useless, but who cares. Car has a lot of road noise, but that's probably how they keep it at 2400 lbs. I always get at least 30 mpg and I've gotten over 40 on a couple of long trips. I did replace the accessory belt at 30,000 because of noise, but no other problems. My wife doesn't like this car because it's low and requires you to climb up and out of it.

Best Features

Handling. Engine is well matched to car. Basic brakes are excellent. Mileage.

Worst Features

Bring it back.
