The Celica that just keeps on giving! by Amber from Seattle on 12/01/2012. Trim: 1998 Toyota Celica GT Convertible, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: The Celica convertible is very fun to drive, comfortable and a very good looking car. It is nice to have a car that people admire when driving by, I had the windows tinted and I really like that feature. - it looks even better than good now! The leather seats look very high end and do not look worn like I have seen in other cars it's age. I have updated the stereo and security system also. I it is a great car for traveling for two people.
Cons: I dislike that they no longer make them as I would like to update to a newer car someday but it will be very had to part with this one. I do not like the snap on cover for when the top is down. It is akward when you take it off when you are traveling - where are you going to put it? It doesn't really fit in the trunk or the back seat. Mine has been in the attic for the last 13 years. Also, the bra - it doesn't like wearing that either. It seems like dirt gets stuck up under it and I didn't want it to scratch the paint so up in the attic for the bra also.
Overall review: I have owed this car going on 14 years and it has been trouble free. It is fun to drive and has great style, I get about 30 miles to the gallon. I have followed all the maintaince recommend plus a few extra things. The car still looks brand new. I have it completely detailed once a year to keep that new car look going and going! There is not much room in the back seat so we always have to take their car when going out. I love that part a lot! I do not allow anyone to eat, drink or smoke in the car so the leather interior still has that new look too. The convertible top is very easy to use just a push of the button. You just need to be sure that everything is secure - like your litter bag and kleenex box, They will try emptying themselves and fly out of the car when you least expect it.
