I always thought that the 7th gen Celica's gear box was rather good, not great, but good. I've driven better and I hate to say, but some of you will know. But what gets me about Toyota other than the reverse is that they have almost the feel I'm looking for. That mechanical feel, a snicker snack. I wish I knew about the TSB for stiffer springs when I was under warranty with my early 2000 Celica. I would be in heaven. I don't want to shift like a hot knife through butter not knowing for sure where I shifted or what gear.
oh dont get me wrong. I do love how it feels, I do love how it drives. But I have to admit that sometimes I kinda get tired of having to press such a hard clutch all the way down to shift.
I live on the beach, and when im coming back from parties and stuff really late at night, with no one to race
i wish i could have a little softer clutch.
PS. As I was thinking about how sporty the celi is, I just remembered how my grandma freaked out when I took her for a ride. She also freaked out even more when I turned on my system...
