"My first car from high school and I attend ucf now. I am 21 years old. Unfortunetly the engine blew out a week ago and I was told to fix it, it would cost me $3800. I don't have that money. It needs some paint repairs other wise. Tires are good and brakes . Looking for best offer. Thank you."

My Boston car.

"I bought this from my niece in cash 4 years ago. I love it. It gets great gas mileage and is wicked fast for a 4 cylinder. It is so fun to drive. This is the first Toyota I have owned. It is so sexy."

"Bought this car as a gift to myself to chipper up on a birthday. It's a Toyota, so it's been mostly reliable. Have been experiencing some engine issues / oil consumption, which I later found out is really common with the '00 to '03 Celicas. The exterior looks beautiful, but don't let its sleek look fool you--this car is gutless. For the bassheads: Watch for rattles in the spoiler and the hatchback handle."

"I have owned this car since 2001. 14 years. I have loved driving this car, get excellent gas mileage and it is a fun car, 5 speed is fun, too. Don't know why Toyota quit making this. It is awesome. It is getting harder for me to get in and out of anymore (am 68); so that also let's you know how much I love this car. When I pull through a drive-through, I'm still often asked if I want to sell my car (usually teenagers)! I guess. It's time to sell it. Nothing has ever gone wrong with this car until recently, the air cond has begun to leak freon. I still love it."

"Very Sound and Safe Vehicle. Excellent Acceleration for a 4-Cyl No Major Issues the entire time we have owned it If looking for an economical sound car for fuel economy and reliability I would highly recommend the Celica. It is also still very stylish even for a 15 year old model. Great first car for a High School Student"

"My first choice of cars was a Saab so I would buy them "very used". Family history led me to Saabs with parents that were both of Swedish descent. Expensive to maintain and that was not so much fun! So, a co-worker had a Celica and gave me a ride to the garage to pick up my Saab that was being repaired (naturally). I had to have one! Found my Celica with 23K miles at a dealer in Boston and I have owned the car from the 23K to the current 111K. Fun to drive? Awesome! Five speed manual transmission - close to the ground... handles the tight curves! No mechanical issues that were not normal wear. I love this car! The mileage is moving up so I have to consider options. Still great car - no complaints, ever! They don't make them anymore... why?"
