2000 Toyota Celica GT-S 1.8 VVTL-i
Indeed a well performing entry level sports car
Check engine light kept lighting up because of the poor quality of the fuel available where I live.
Two separate bumps in the fuselage, one on the front right bumper, and one on the back left bumper, due to poor handling in the port (I had the car shipped from the USA to where I live).
Since the first day I got it, it seems that the back-left woofer is suffering from some kind of defect, since it would start distorting bass sounds on the higher volumes (While the other woofer doesn't seem to have any problem).
No major problems however.
Very precise pedals and handling make the car feel like it's on rails (Quick brakes and steering, short and quick transmission lever), however they make you dread any mistakes as a less experienced driver will risk stalling the car.
Excellent acceleration, but sometimes brutal enough to make you lose traction on the first 2 gears if you're using crappy wheels.
Comfortable front seats, comparable to gaming seats, but awful back seats, more suitable for torture than for seating.
Automatic headlights, front and back wipers, and locks make life easier for people like me who have trouble remembering stuff.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
