Best most reliable fun car I have owned
2006 manual transmission Scion TC!!! Best most reliable fun car I have ever owned!!! I have owned this vehicle since it was delivered to the dealership in August of 2005 and drove it off the lot with 3 miles on the odometer!! It now has 270,000 miles on it and runs and drives like it only has 20,000 miles on it!! Superb Japanese engineering in every aspect of this vehicle!! 17 years now and this car has never broken down on me and left me on the side of the road! I’ve been the only one to perform all maintenance and repairs if needed and anything that needed replacement was normal parts like brakes, struts, alternator. I use only high quality engine oil and trans gear oil and everything runs almost like new still. I finally had to replace the clutch recently but it was just because the dampeners on the clutch disc had finally had enough of the heat from the engine and the clutch disc pads still had about 75% of the pads left at 265,000 miles. Even though that was all that was failing on the clutch system I did still replace the flywheel, pressure plate, clutch disc and throw-out/release bearing. I literally feel this car has at least another 200,000 miles that can be put on it before any bigger problems would arise. This think is a tank of a vehicle and if well maintained will literally keep going and going for you! Buy one if you can find one that was well maintained!!!
Scions are the Best.
I purchased my Scion TC 2006 in 2006 with 14,000 miles on it; until now has 254,000 miles on it, and it still runs excellent the only issue I had was replacing the alternator several times, and the started twice other than that, it still runs perfectly fine. Does someone know how long a Scion can last in miles?

Bought this 14 year old car with 57k original miles. Needed a few maintenance things to it. But it is a toyota and it is running well as you would expect. Bought a few addition items that were aging and the parts were cheap.
