i need some info on celicas from owners
hey I really like the looks of Celica's and I'm thinking about buying one but will I fit? I'm 6'4" and right now I drive an 02 Eclipse and it fits fine, if anyone could give me a comparison that'd be great. Also I was wondering are the back seats useless or can u actually fit people(less then 5'8") back there? Last question is What is the tuning potential of a stock GTS? I want to tune it up to about 300whp. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Never mind about that 300whp tune. After looking around a little I know its not going to happen in this car without a ton of money going into it. I'd still like to know its tuning potential though. What do you have yours tuned up to?

If you're set on getting a Celica, definitely look for one with a sun/moon roof, as they offer an extra inch or so for your height.

The back seat is cramped for anyone taller than 5'4". Don't expect anyone to enjoy sitting back there for longer than quick trip to the store or to school. With your height, your driver's seat will probably be pushed all the way back, not leaving too much room for anyone (with legs) to sit behind you laugh Honestly, about 4" of leg clearance if the front seat is positioned comfortably for the driver.

It is the getting in that will be a problem for you. Once you're in it's not too bad. A tilt wheel would have been nice.

The 7th gen Celica does include a tilt steering wheel - It's operation is detailed in the owner's manual
