The best in town car by sliver Bulit from hick town on 01/07/2008. Trim: 1996 Toyota Celica ST 25th Anniversary liftback, Owned 2 years.
Pros: quick in town car. It can zip around town in a hurry. A great riding car and a very fun car to drive I love it and probley would not trade it for anything ealse but a Supra.
Cons: slow after 60 MPH or so. needs more HP but with the GT or the GT-S moter would be a fast car. It should have the sport top like the Supra that would be alsome.
Overall review: love this car it looks like the supra wich i love. A great in town car. Sounds great with Flowmaster's on it and new piping and bye tuneing it up it is a sweet runing car. It has a great sweet spot around the 3000 RPM's reel good running at that RPM rate

Perfect first time car. by Rique from Mountain View on 01/07/2006. Trim: 1996 Toyota Celica GT liftback, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Love the look of this car. I get constant good comments about it and when i tell people its a 1996 they're surprised to see such a nice looking car for a 96. Very sporty, love the 5 speed shifter. Tons of trunk space. Having all the windows down and the sun roof open almost makes its feel like a convertible. Bucket seats give a sports feel.
Cons: Back room seating, only major problem. I have a brother who can just barely sit back there and he's 5'8. But it fits perfectly for children. Short trips are fine, but don't even think of long trips! it'll get cramped. Other than that maybe some more Horsepower and this car has got it all!
Overall review: Overall great car. Would recommend this celica to anybody. Even my girlfriend wants to drive my Celica over her 96 Honda Civic Sedan EX because it feels more sportier and nicer. Car hasn't had any problems and knowing its from Toyota i doubt i'll have too many in the future.

Sporty and Economical! by CarNut from Sacramento on 04/25/2005. Trim: 1996 Toyota Celica GT liftback, Owned 2 years.
Pros: I like the styling, handling, and good MPG (28) with my foot in it! I don't really like automatics, but this is the best automatic I have ever driven! I like how it shifts back into first gear even when still rolling like when turning right at a signal--power is there immediately instead of having to floor it to make it downshift like in most automatics!
Cons: Headroom in backseat leaves much to be desired because of roofline slant. Could use a little more power, but it is adaquate, probably be fine if it was a 5-speed! Could use a bigger sunroof, but would require it opening above the roofline, not into the roof.
Overall review: I highly recomend this car, I once had a friend tell me that it reminded her of another friend's Supra! Handling is a good balance between ride/sport. It has more front seat headroom then the new 2000+ Celica (I'm 6'5 and can only fit in non-sunroof 2000+ Celicas).
