Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: My leather seats, the interior... The overall look of the car is amazing.
Cons: IT's not the cheapest car to get fixed... when something goes wrong, it's expensive!
Advice: The pros out weigh the cons by a million. It's fun to drive, and fun to look at!The second I got behind the wheel, I had to have it. I have the whole package on it, it's an amazing car. I really love my Celica GT-S. My first mistake was not getting the manual trans... But I do a lot of driving in traffic, so it works for me personally. If you are looking for a fun little sporty car, this is your best bet. I'm 19 years old, and just purchased this car in june '05, but it had very low miles and one previous owner who had it as a weekend car. It's taken me on 3 vacations, including Myrtle beach, (a 14 hr drive), and it wasn't the most comfortable... but, my girlfriends and I got lots of attention. I have a few added extra's on it. But overall, I love it, it's my baby! Just stay away from the GT. Spend the extra and get the GT-S. They should seriously consider making these again. I'd be first in line.
Pros: The action package+TRD
Cons: The tickets I have gotten from the cops
Advice: It's a true awesome carI added the action package plus the TRD in mine, which added sporty 18' tires, and 14 more horses....the car really rocks, and the best of all is that you do not have to share ground with your neighbours as the people who own a Mustang does, since every other person owns one....a Celica with TRD and action package will make you an exclusive dude in the neighborhood....it's worth the 5 year finance paying more then 700 bucks a month :)
Pros: manual tranny
Cons: only room for 2 females
Advice: GTS and manual transmission is a must!one slick sexy machine
Pros: 8 SPEAKER CD PLAYER
Cons: JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE HEADROOM
Advice: BUY A RADAR DETECTORTHIS CAR IS SIMPLY AWESOME.
Cons: Blind spots
Advice: all around the pros heavily out weigh the consRight when I picked it up I had to find out if it is fast as it looks. This is by far the fastest 4-cyclinder I have test drived. Handles like a dream and still gets better gas mileage then any camaro or mustang. I have people starring all the time when I am driving by...guys the LADIES love the car :) Keep it in the high rpms and you will compete with any stock 6 or 8. Not to mention the look on the faces when I take them when they talk all the trash becaus
Pros: The stares I get when I drive it from others.
Cons: The worst feature about this car would be the back seat, but in my case its only been used about 3 times.
Advice: I love my car, within less then 24 hours I'll admit I recieved my first speeding ticket, but Icouldnt help it. The handleing is awesome, the only thing I regret is not being about to get a manual, nonetheless, its still fast.Definately test drive, its what sold me my car.
Pros: The Action Package
Cons: The fact that most white trash calls it a rice burner.
Advice: Get the Action Package it looks great. If you can't drive a stick LEARNThis is the best handeling car I have ever owned. The bucket seats do not let me slide at all when diving into a corner. The suspention is tuned perfectly and the car gets almost no body role. The Celica is very predictable and I always know how it is going to react. The engine gets good power but I have to keep it reving high to compensate for the lack of low end tourqe. The Action Package is an awsome looking dealer option and it only adds TRD quality parts to my car. The interior is small but very well laid out. I can reach the stereo, heat, and window controls within 6' of my shifter. If you don't drive a manual trans you need to get your suv out of my way. When looking for a car I also test drove a rsx, civic, and 350z. The Celica was by far the best performer, but it could use a bit more power (I am going to instal a Turbo that will solve this problem) I did not waste my time looking at the unreliable uaw junk from detriot. After owning this car for 30 mounths with no problems I would defently recamend it to anyone who wants an amazing driving experience.
