2003 Celica GT - 11 Month Review
By mew1127 on


2003 Toyota Celica GT 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I've had my '03 Celica GT for 11 months
and I love it. It's a $20k car and not
a $40k car..and for that $20 it's
sporty looking, fun to drive and very
economical. There is a rattle in the
sunroof, but I haven't been able to
leave it for a whole day at the
dealership, so I just turn the stereo
up. I'm comfortable in the cabin (but
long road trips are not recommended!).
I especially like the hatchback
feature. I use my car almost as a
truck, but I prefer to drive a sporty
car, so the Celica fits my needs
perfectly. Overall I'm very satisfied
for a $20k car.

Best Features

I love the sporty looks - it looks fast sitting still! I also like the hatchback feature. A 16' extension ladder (8' in length when not extended) actualy fits in this car. Other good features are nice cornering, nice hwy speed acceleration, and very economical.

Worst Features

More torque for better acceleration from a stop; more seat padding; be able to raise driver seat higher for short people; a few more inches in length to get 10' long lumber completely inside - as it is, only a 9'6' boards will fit. Re-design of the unappealing tail lamps.
