The vehical advertised above actually was my car. I traded it in last week but I have to say I will miss this car. Great car, no maintenance issues, and it actually have tons of space in the back seat for passangers and hauling if you fold the seats down. It's a fun little car and I have no complaints about driving it. It's not as convenient for hauling as an SUV is but that is not its purpose. Will make someone very happy for a long time!

This week I totalled the car by hitting a guard rail and I wasn't hurt at all, this is truly a safe car. My complaints are that I don't like the black interior, it gets too dirty and the dials are hard to read during the daytime.

Best car I've owned

For a four cylinder the power is great and the handling is unbelievable. It's lights, fast and still good on fuel. I have the stick shift and it gives an even better kick to it and a very easy clutch to drive. The basic options include power everything and the high profile alloy wheels and double moon roof standard are a nice touch. I bought mine new in 2006 and have never had any mechanical problems with it.

I loved my scion tC. I actually totaled my first one and had to have another one. I never had a problem with either of them. They were excellent on gas, but still had pep to them. I drove them while I was in college. (an hour and a half to and from every weekend) They have a lot of features that don't come on most base cars which is really nice. They handle very well, they are technically a subcompact car but they drive more on the sporty side. To me the scion was the best of both worlds efficient on gas, reliable, good price but sporty, stylish, and had nice features. (reclining backside, flip down back seat, moonroof, sunroof, pop up windguard on sunroof, signals on mirrors, the list goes on) Because it's a hatchback and has the flip down backseats, the back can turn into alittle truck like bed. I moved myself to and from college multiple years. I still miss my scion.

simply a great car overall. they have thought of everything and the standard features are great. awsome sound system, nice alloy wheels, audio controls on the small sporty steering wheel, leather shift knob. this car drives really well, it responds to every little move of the driver. the handling of the road is excellent and the little engine is busting with power. the manual transmission offers much better acceleration. everyone should drive this car to exerience the fun.

Great value and style for the money

by from St. Louis, MO on March 18, 2008

Everything about this car has been great to me. I've owned it for two years and put over 50,000 miles on it. It's great in all terrain. Only downside is the bad rear visibility when backing up.

This car is absolutely amazing!! I bought it in azure pearl and everyone compliments me on the color because it looks like it changes between night/day...however any color that the tc comes available is gorgeous. I upgraded it with fog lights, blue LED lights, leather shift knob, IPOD capability stereo, floor mats, lo-jack security, lip spoiler, and I want more! New performance accessories are now available such as a supercharger, quick shifter, and cold air intake. If only my boyfriend knew how many guys hit on me with this car on the way to work =)..the drive is toyota smooth, handles well around turns. The best part is the reclining rear seats and the double sunroof. Friends like the roominess in the back seats and say "it has room like a 4-door." The standard 17" Yokohama low-profile tires are definitely a plus when it comes to value. More horsepower than an 06 civic EX, you are definitely getting more than what you pay for. Please, buy one, and ENJOY!!
