"Value- Holds value pretty good compared to other vehicles Reliability- Never Had one problem always starts right up and Is ready to go! Quality- I think quality is great! would have got a 10/10 but the cardboard looking headliner kind of ruins it Driving Dynamics- Great!!! takes corners beautifully has good pick up speed and for a sporty car it is surprisingly comfy. Design- 9/10 mostly because of the headliner I enjoy the feel I get when I sit in mine. The seats hug you very well when going around a corner. The vents and the way the dashboard has a V in it makes it feel very sporty! I also put a 7" screen in and you can hardly tell its a 2001!!! I was told many times it looks amazing! Now to get to the outside, body fetchers to me are great. Its very unique. Comfort and Convenience- 9/10 if your looking to buy this car you already no that your not going mudding and in crazy places I gave it a 9 because back seats are 100% useless. Overall Rating- 9/10 Nothing is perfect!!!"

"Purchased in red, on my mid life crisis, 50th Birthday and Best Car Ever! Zero maintenance cost except for one battery. Oh, and for leaving the sunroof open in a poring rain-- which cost plenty for dealership to suck it out about two weeks after it was mine. I hope someday it will be the best, FIRST car ever for some lucky teen-- as I have yet to drive though McDonald's without a teen complimenting, "Cool Car!" 2005 RED GTS TOYOTA CELICA, with spoiler and 45,000 Grammy miles. Some kid is going to be lucky real soon-- cause it's getting harder each day to get in and out my LOW, sporty "cool car!" Get up and go, power, speed-- more than any kid needs-- including me. So, why don't they make them still? Too, reliable I suppose."

"Bought this car 4 1/2 years ago with 47,000 miles on it. Had my mechanic service it and all it needed to pass inspection was a new set of Michelin tires. Runs well and regularly gets 27 mpg with my foot into it. Replaced the factory stereo with a Pioneer double deck that included Ipod capability, aux input, CD and DVD, bluetooth, plus AM FM stereo and added a Back-up camera. I only drive it about 4000 miles a year. Its fun to drive and shift through the gears. Besides oil changes and other routine work, Cannot complain."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Very sporty, good-looking car. Quick acceleration, handles well, and gets good gas mileage (approx. 27 mpg) on regular gas (although premium is recommended by Toyota). Good trunk space (easily handles a set of golf clubs) and comfortable head, shoulder and leg-room for the driver (I'm 6" 2") and passenger. Very cramped for back seat passengers."

Pros: "slot car. great mpg. looks cool."

Cons: "they don't make them anymore :("

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Handles like a slot car. Over 30+ mpg always. 230,00 mi. on original clutch (lots of freeway miles), but it's starting to burn oil (valves). Put on snow tires and it will go anywhere in the snow."
