Best car I've ever owned

by from Rio Rico, AZ on August 4, 2017

It's too bad that Toyota doesn't make this model anymore because I would buy another one in a heartbeat.

Love our "vintage" buy

by from Greenville, SC on May 15, 2017

We are loving our little Celica. It may be old, but it's so fun to drive. Toyotas last forever. We love them.

We have always wanted a Celica as an extra "fun" car. When one came across our path at a very reasonable price, we were delighted. Definitely built as a sports car. (The only drawback was cigarette smoke smell in the interior, which we have almost eradicated.)

Stylish and affordable car, great gas mileage

by from MI on April 7, 2017

Reliable Toyota dependability, very fuel efficient at about 30+ MGP. It's also a sporty ride, that is fun to drive.

I used to drive a Subaru Outback. When I switched over to this car, the upgrade in gas mileage was tremendous. I went from getting about 27mpg highway to about 34. My celica now has over 200 thousand miles on it and I have only had to replace a cracked windshield. This car is relatively quick (good acceleration). I have never owned a car so reliable. I am over 6' and I don't feel that my leg room is restricted as with many cars. I have not had many problems in the winter. I commute over an hour to work everyday this car has treated me well. I will be surprised if this thing ever dies. Though, if it does, I would absolutely get another.

I have owned a Celica hrs for the past 7 years. Bought itfrom my dad, it was his sports car. The engine makes a growl sound and sounds amazing. It's fun to drive and the transmission is very responsive. There are some common problems with the older ones like sybchros, lift bolts and door locks. Now it is my winter vehicle and it's still as fun to drive as day one.

Best Toyota ever...

by from New Jersey on July 6, 2011

I drove my brand new 2001 Toyota Celica from the dealer with 2 miles on it and I driven my car until she was 225,000 miles... and hand it to my younger brother. Sad to let her go but I needed a bigger car for the baby? This was one of the best car that I have owned. She handles turns very well. Oil changed every 5k with Synthetic. Long as you have a good tire she is good on snow? at 185,000 miles I needed to change my Catalytic converter that was due to my mistake of driving the car on a flooded street. Reliability: I used to drive to Toronto Canada two times a month from NJ, did it for 4 years. Not even a single time she gave me any issues. I have driven this car on Canadian snow storms never had issues? Comfort: well it?s a sports style car? the bucket seats are good but putting 9 hrs one way it take a tall? But its seats 4 people but you can squeeze 5th one. Interior Design: for it?s class it has the best one? I changed some of my interior from stock? changed the Audio systems and installed carbon fiber interior. Performance: I could not afford a GT-S at that time. So I got the 4 speed Automatic but it never let me down when I needed power. Used the overdrive a lot to get a quick response, Due to my brothers Neglect the engine having some issue now but she has over 275,000 miles on her. I?m looking to get a rebuild engine to get her back on the road again. If you?re interested in getting this car go-ahead you will have lots of fun? she might not be the fastest car on the road but sure dam fun to drive?

I don't know if I've ever had a more fun, more reliable car. There are some complaints about older 2000 celicas drinking oil but that has not been my experience. This thing is a dream...new brakes at 113,000. Great gas mileage, looks fantastic. This is THE BEST vehicle for the money. I'm sad they don't make this model anymore because 30 years from now I'll have to be driving a 40 year old car.
