Car runs good and is Fun to drive!

Great car for the Summer to enjoy the nice weather! This car is great to take a country ride or go for a ride along the coast.


Fun car but not one of Toyota's best

I currently own this convertible, fully loaded. I do love the car but was surprised by all the little things that go wrong. Top isn't the best quality and they all seem to need replacing plus leak way more then I expected. The rear windows also are fragile, breaking guide rollers. Those aren't Toyota's reliability since the top is ASC. Still it drags down the fun factor. Paint is another issue and frequently the clear coat fails. Common to alot of mid 90 cars. Good news is replacement parts aren't too expensive, are easy to find (most anyway), and are shade-tree mechanic friendly. Performance isn't bad, but it's not a sports car. Ride comfort is pretty good even on longer drives. Interior is typical 90s, nice but nothing fancy. The bad being rear window switches on the center dash behind the shifter (very awkward location) these are also prone to failure. The cup holder that slides out of the armrest which is small and flimsy. It can not accommodate a 20oz bottle of coke due to the smaller opening. Poor interior lighting, with the only lights coming on when you open the door being 2 small red lights on the lower door hidden by the seat. So you enter into a dark car. The two overhead lights don't really light up anything either after you manually turn them on. Easily fixed with brighter LED bulbs. The good is that everything else is in easy reach of driver, works well and is common sense laid out. Overall a fun car that I would not hesitate to buy again.


Toyoto's best

This car was made Oct.1994. It only had the two front split axes boots replaced, a coil,a light that shows the gear its in, valve cover gaset, recommended service for timing belt, water pump,etc. and the alloy wheels during to damage. It uses no oil and has no leaks. It runs and drives as it did when new. All the light bulbs are original in lieu of the forementioned.It was made in Japan so the paint looks like new today. Back in its day it was not cheap to buy but the money was well spent.


95 Celica GT Convertible

Bought my neglected blue Celica 3 years ago with about 125,000 miles for a great deal. Have driven another 56,000 miles and still going strong. After purchase, replaced timing belt, plugs, water pump, hoses, gaskets, belts, brake pads, flushed fluids. Installed new radiator, alternator, battery & tires past 3 years. Overall, price of car plus servicing cost effective. Average 25-29 (+/-) mpg city/highway driving. Celica was driven daily until past winter when weather forced me to get a 4x4 (naturally another Toyota). Celica (almost 20 years old) started right up after 2 months of sitting, put the top down & off we went. Love driving this car!


94 Celica GT

Bought my Celica GT 5speed as a temporary second car. I fell in love with the car and decided to keep it around and spend some money bringing it up to speed. The seats were particularly impressive as I often have chronic back pains on long drives. However the seats in the Celica were superb. Also I purchased the car with 211K on the dial and everything works. Engine just needed new valve cover gasket. Fantastic car overall with excellent durability. Looks great too. Just had new paint on it since the original paint faded badly and it looks better than new cars. Absolute keeper. I love my Toyota.


95 Celica ST

I have to be honest, this is my first import ever, I bought it for 2k knowing it would need some work which has now grown to engine mounts and a master cylinder all of these are not that hard to install but can be a pain to find being that most everything is discountinued, im hoping that when the new 2012 comes to the states that Toyota will get smart and start making parts again. I would so recommend this car to someone else I really do love the car and glad I bought it


Great Car, best I've ever had for dependability..

and she is a head turner! I bought mine at @ 134K have put on 15K and haven't had ANY problems. I just change the oil and she's super responsive, starts and drives excellent! You won't go wrong on this car.



I purchased this beauty from my uncle last year. He had it since it was brand new, and it still is!! I live in Canada, and I brought the car up from Florida. No rust, MINT condition. I just love it, and where ever I take it, heads turn. Not many cars in Canada that are 15 years old without rust!! It drives and handles great, only have had to do oil changes. Getting ready to store my baby for the winter. I just love my car!!


This is a real head turner. Very fast.

I bought my '95 Celica ST Automatic Sport Coupe 2D back in Sept. of 2006 and I've already put 10,000 miles on it! This car is incredibly respnsive. With the overdrive off, there is a low humming that you'll hear when you are around 55 mph, but I love that. Mine is 12 years old, yet it has 0-60 mph in 9.2 sec. and top speed of 95 mph (because I was afraid of getting a ticket) and this is from a Stock model. I can't wait to see what it can do once I tune it with aftermarket products!


Best Car Ive Ever Driven

I just bought a used 95 Celica GT last year and in the year that I have owned it I have had no complaints about it. It has a smooth responsive ride and good looks. Mine has a manual transmission and it fires off the line from a dead stop. The interior is somewhat minimalistic, it suits me fine and the stock speakers are great even being 10 years old! I would highly recommend this car!
