The car is not only reliable, but it also has amazing gas mileage

My Celica is incredibly reliable. I have over 190,000 miles on the car and it still runs incredibly. I was in a small accident that cracked the bumper, but the car still runs great.

you can fit a ton of stuff in the back. it's amazing the size and quantity of things you can fit in such a small car.

this is the best car i've ever owned. the hatchback is great for hauling stuff without needing an giant SUV. this is my second celica and am sad they don't make them anymore.

Great car but would love to in prove how fast it goes.

Nothing sometimes having trouble with the motor going a lot and the radio going in and out a lot but other than that it runs good.
