I want to write a small review on my new celica gts 2001.There are few things that I am impressed with the car but there are a few that annoys a little bit.
I read so many reviews on the web the car really handles well on the curves but I couldn't get the feeling when I make the turns in the car.This is maybe because I had driven stable cars like accord,civic,dodge neon,nissan sentra.
As many people mentioned in their reviews, car needs a little more horse power for it to fly.A V6 engine would have been a good idea too.
I always keep the rpm low when I drive the car, I get 30-32mpg with a mix of city and freeway.When compared with other cars in its class this is a nice car with a decent mileage.Ofcourse it takes premium grade gas.
I waited little longer to find a car that is fully loaded,interior leather is very nice but the cheap plastic thrown in the dash makes it look cheaper.
I used to park really well with my other cars, celica parking is always a problem as the visibility is poor in the back and Ofcourse thats a problem with the front.Road view is very nice as you sit very close to the ground.
I am really impressed with the looks of the car, escpecially the rear maybe because of the dual catback exchaust.I will upload some pictures soon.
Sound isn't that great with the stock speakers.Hopefully I will install some better speakers in the car to really experinece the sound I want to hear.
Long iron antenna on the back is really annoying, for a car like that the stock antenna really looks stupid(maybe for me).I replaced mine with a europian one.
This is one of the reasons why I bought this car.A 6 speed transmission is really fun to drive especially at the traffic signals.
