Summary:

Incredible

Faults:

None.

General Comments:

Genuine UK new, third generation Celica GT Four, known internally as ST205.

Fearsome acceleration, but not scary thanks to the incredible traction and stunning brakes; stops and steers on a sixpence.

Excellent, able, communicative dynamics. Real drivers car. Up to Impreza standard.

Decent refinement. Tyre noise is intrusive on the motorway. Still very much a grand tourer though, but with more of a sharper edge.

Noise is gorgeous. Looks are intimidating, better than the front wheel drive Celica ST205, thanks to air intakes.

Just amazing. Dealers friendly. Car even better. Fuel economy is not the best, but it is a very small price to pay for such a stunning car.

The ST205 is ONLY 4WD.

1994-1998 Celicas FWD are known as ST203/ST204.

I have a AWD ST205 and it rocks. ;O)

Previous carBMW 325i

Summary:

A well-built economical sports car that retains all the fun of driving

Faults:

Clutch was bad when I purchased it from a private owner. He may not have known how to drive a clutch very well.

It needed a tune-up.

Nothing major.

Left front high beam headlight has gathered some condensation that I cannot seem to extract, and the rubber surround around the low beam headlights is trying to press its way out a little.

I think the car will hold up very well for the abuse they have put it through.

General Comments:

Car seems to handle very well considering I was use to driving the 325i BMW with the sports package.

The engine is a bit noisier, but I like the sporty sound & tune of the Celica.

I wish to find out more about putting a turbo on the 5A-S 2.2 engine.

1994 Toyota Celica GT4 2.0 litre Twin Entry Turbo from UK and Ireland

Comfort marks 8 / 10
Dealer Service marks 6 / 10
Running Costs (higher is cheaper) 5 / 10

Faults:

The aerial wouldn't go up at all and once I had connected a radio to it, it wouldn't come down! No mechanical problems so far (had it 2 months so far).

General Comments:

Lovely looking (head-turning) muscular car but being a Jap import, the speedo is in Km/h and is electronically limited to 112mph. Very little turbo lag, ride is comfortable, reliable, very fast, only thing is that a possible rattle underneath may need looking at, otherwise I am delighted with it.

General Comments:

Niggles:

a. £23k car and it doesn't have heated side mirrors = Toyota being pathetic in UK climate!

b. Press doesn't like the car for some reason, but it's been a good runner for me and if it came with air conditioning and the heated mirror I'd have been 10/10 happy.

Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo = next car I think.

General Comments:

I bought it in Ireland, and it comes with no CD (bit disappointed). However everything is electric, even the speed.

I seen it getting 7.1 seconds 0-60mph.

The best car I have ever owned. I am certainly buying the new one in 1999.
