Looks fast, Drives slow
By jcworrel on


2003 Toyota Celica GT-S 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


This car is really pathetic when it
comes to 0-60 speed. It is so slow off
the line if feels like you might be in
reverse. A 4 cyl just doesn't cut it
and while it does pick up after you hit
15mph or so, it is embarrasing because
the 96 Geo Metro that was next to you
at the light is already down the street
hanging a left. Throw a V-6 in this
and another 50 horsepower and Toyota
might be on to something. For now,
save your money for a 300ZX or the new
Mazada RX-8 and get a real car.

Best Features

Outside styling and stylish inside.

Worst Features

Pull whimpy high reving engine and get some low end torque so that you can actually peel out.
