This car is fast, sporty, handles like a dream, but it's a tad bit cramped on the inside
Radiator blew open at 126,000 miles and needed to be replaced. Engine was entirely rebuilt, clutch was replaced, and new battery installed just prior to my purchase.
This car is quick off the line despite the fact that it weighs nearly 3,000 pounds. It's real acceleration is mostly apparent when you're on the highway, though. If I have to pass someone, there is no car I've ever driven that I'd rather be behind the wheel of than my Celica. It's scary fast when the turbo kicks in on the road. I can go from 60 to 90 in a matter of seconds.
It handles like a race car- I can take corners at unbelievable speed and still not feel like I'm even close to pushing the envelope. I have to constantly hold back from going faster.
On the downside, the interior room is not good for someone tall like me (I'm 6'1"). I have to open the sunroof to get enough headroom because I hate tilting my seat back too far. I do get plenty of leg room, however, and I love the tilt steering wheel.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
