1992 Toyota Celica GT4 Carlos Sainz 2.0 turbo from UK and Ireland


This car delivers so much for so little money


Nothing has gone wrong at all.

General Comments:

This car is reliable, smooth and quiet.

It can return good MPG if driven carefully. Performance is excellent.

The car is equipped with all the driver luxuries you need as a driver, which is why this is my everyday car.

The car even comes with a 6 speaker CD/Radio/Cassette as standard. Air-con and electric tilt/slide sunroof.

General Comments:

Apart from the problems, I have regret buying this car. It is very fast, it does 0-60 in about 6 seconds, has 201 brake horse power standard, and can hit 150mph. No bad turbo lag, if you change gear quick you are gone, the torque is great in 3rd/4th gear. Not many common cars on the road come near the acceleration. Being 4 wheel drive also helps, hardly any wheel spin, if any occurs. Quite a bit of G Force if you get a good rev, and lift the clutch up fast!

It really is a head turner, everyone is always looking around, it's nice to have a dump valve to increase the looks. The bonnet looks great, very different, the bonnet scoop moulds into the bonnet, the whole car has that well known Rally look.

This model celica (ST185) looks best in Red, in my opinion, in really brings out the style and scoop/vents. The Wide-arch body is the best looking which is available later on in this model (not sure when though), but it's noticeable wider!.

I recommend anyone this car, if you want fast, good looks, however be prepared that when things do go wrong, it costs quite a bit more than average to fix, but don't let that put you off buying one, its not worth it.

It has discs at the back, not drums.

The handbrake is a drum type sitting inside the rear disc.

Carlos Sainz Celica Gt4. Very reliable, clutch needs replacing and rear end skids out too often, spun out on a round about twice in 3 days.

Great Car, I'd recommend it to anyone!


The antenna has fallen off, but it was easily screwed back on in a matter of three minutes.

No mechanical problems at all.

General Comments:

Great car. I used to own a 1995 Dodge Intrepid (auto) and loved the car for it's power. I thought that switching to a smaller car would prove to be a little disappointing as far as the power that it could provide, but I was proven wrong.

Car is fast


Shifts perfectly

Exterior is in excellent condition

Interior is in perfect condition

Love the look and feel of this car.

(this was my first car that was stick, I learned how to drive it in about 30 minutes and it was great)

1992 Toyota Celica GT 2.0 from North America


Reliable and sporty import


The serpentine belt slipped, but did no damage at all to the engine. The total cost including labor was $146.00.

Apart from that, I have done nothing to the car except put a new set of tires on, and changed the oil every 4,000 miles.

General Comments:

A great little car with surprising performance and great fuel economy. It's a bit cramped inside, but not uncomfortable. The trunk is huge for such a small car.

If you need parts, most are available off the shelf at popular parts centers.

The car has no rust at all, and turns heads.

The only fault I've had was due to the original owner never replacing the serpentine belt, and it got old and slipped, which knocked the timing out. This was a simple fix.

The car is 100% reliable, which is more than can be said for the Chevy Malibu that it replaced.
