My 2001 Celica gt-s has almost 200k on it and it runs and drives great. It rides like a sports car from the 20th century but it has more style then anything being made today. Although it's not for everyone, I wouldn't trade it for a brand new Lexus even if you through in your mommy's BMW.

First time Car

This was my first car I bought by myself with no help. My car is also the celica GT-S. It is slow and just sickening. It is reliable since the model is 2001, and it is 2017, but when you push on the gas to go, it is like you push down and it goes slow as a turtle. The car is uncomfortable and too tight, and it is an inconvenience. The car also does not run on regular gas, it runs on Premium gas, and that can get expensive considering it wastes so much gas if you even drive it a few miles.

Fun to drive, but unreliable.

I really loved my Celica, but every time I replaced a part a different one broke. It was lots of fun to drive, handled extremely well, was great on gas, and looked great. Only reason I took a point off the comfort level is I'm 6'4", and this is not a car designed for tall people. Shorter friends and family loved driving it, and the seats are actually very comfortable even at long distances. From what I've heard, I just got a lemon, as most of the problems I had were uncommon. As long as you have the vehicle checked by a mechanic you trust before you purchase it, I would recommend the car.

Best. Car. Ever.

by from on March 28, 2017

You will never get this much car for that little money. Never had any major problems with it, it is basically a sexy looking Corolla

I've owned my Toyota Celica GTS for one year now and I must say I love this car. The gas milage is excellent the power delivery is outstanding. The power is there when I need it. This is my first car and I've driven other manual cars like honda civics, honda accords, and my mother's nissan sentra (manual) and the clutch on my Celica feels just right. It is smooth and shifts great. Truly recommend to anybody.

Do not buy a 200-2003 GT (1ZZ engine)

This car has its ups and downs. The only reason you should not purchase a GT model is because after 100k miles on a GT model the car starts to burn oil fast. Regular oil burns at 1500 miles synthetic only lasts 1700-1800 after you get an oil change. Averagely for me however and I barely drive the car around. The longer you drive the car in a day the faster the oil will burn. The GTS model (2ZZ) does not burn any oil to begin with. I didn't know this problem existed but all celicas from 2000-2003 have this problem that are a GT sub model. Unless you're using this car for a project car go ahead but otherwise don't buy it. Everything else about the car is fine I wish it had better performance though and driving in the snow is really hard to do with this car. Interior is alright I keep it looking brand new everyday so that doesn't bother me. It should be considered to be a 2-3 seater every time I have 2 other friends riding with me I make one of them lay in the back since there isn't enough room in the back.
