Worst car ever purchased

Was told the car just needed new tires and brakes but when I took it to get the work done the mechanic said it had the worst case of cancerous rust to the entire undercarriage and could not try to repair it and the car should not be driven. It should have been sold for salvage only. It is still sitting at the shop because I can’t get repairs done to be able to drive it.


Love my Celica GTS!

I bought my 2003 Celica GTS brand new off the lot. I have always enjoyed driving it and still enjoy it. It was a daily driver for me, but I bought a Tacoma P/U, and retired my Celica, and have no intentions of selling it any time soon. It is so much fun to drive, although it is not driven much anymore. I have a little over 100,000 miles on it and still love to take it out for a spin once in a while....fast for a four banger!


Best car ever

I've owned alot of different cars and SUVs, and always wanted a celica. When I had to scrap my 99 Toyota Corolla, due to the frame rusting apart, I immediately started shopping for a celica. From the outstanding reliability to the exotic style of the exterior, its easily the best car I've ever owned. I've had it for 3 years, and have almost zero problems. 170k miles on it, and it still runs and corners like a true sports car. I have never modified it, nor ever will. In my opinion, its perfect as is.


I loved her!

Great car! Fun, sad to see her go. Just wanted something new but has upheld its value the 5 years I had her. I want to start a family soon and need something bigger. Runs well, maintained (boyfriend is a mechanic). No significant issues. Toyota's are really great cars!!!!!


Very reliable and fun to drive

For the price this car is amazing feels like a sports car. Highly recommend to get the gt-s model. Very reliable I only did oil changes every 3,500 miles and it never give me a problem.


Sporty on a budget

Ive owned both versions of the car, gt and gts. Toyota reliability with a little sport styling. Parts are economical, gets great gas milage, and its quite peppy. I'm 6'1", and I fit comfortably. Owned the gts for 2 years, bought used, and the only mayor repair was a scheduled timing chain replacement due to milage, at 140,000 miles. Never overheated, ice cold A/C all day.


Best carbi have ever owned

The car handles great, and looks good. Would recommend it to any car enthusiast. Toyota is a great car maker and the gas mileage was good as well.


It is an all round great and fun car

I love this car. Its great on gas mileage, and its fast. I would recomend this car to anyone who loves to drive fast. Its also 5 speed so you can shift to get up to speed faster.


This car is. 2003 Toyota Celica GT

Yes this car may be small, but its very comfortable, and stylish. Driving down the road its very eye popping. Super fuel efficient and a very fast car.


A sweet drive, reliable, and very cool.

This car has been a dream - only selling because I am converting to plug in (Prius), to save the environment and a son who has been bending my arm. Have loved owning and driving this car.
