I bought my Scion tc 2 years ago, and I love it. I have received so many compliments on the style and color (pearl blue). It can get up and go when I want it to, and it comes with some really cool accessories like an ipod jack and double sun roof. The only downfall with the 2 door design is the back seat is pretty small and my male friends complain about having to sit in the back. It will probably not be the car of choice once I have a car seat to put in because getting to the back seat is difficult. Other than that, it's been a dream to drive, is perfect for me cruising around with the sunroof open, and gets a lot of looks. Plus it was only $18k brand new.

I purchased my used 2008 tC a few weeks ago. I knew nothing of this car until I decided that I needed a smaller, more fuel-efficient car. I love Toyotas but I was not impressed with the Yaris, Matrix, or Corolla - I was looking for something a bit more sporty. I came across this used Scion tC at the Toyota lot and was immediately impressed with its sporty looks and value for the price. I did my research and bought it with no doubt in my mind that I made a great choice. It handles like a much more expensive sports car. The sound system is amazing. I would recommend this car to anyone.

I was 23 and after going from a 89 hatchback toyota tercel, to a 1994 Isuzu Rodeo, to another 1996 Isuzu rodeo.......and from car overheating, paycheck for gas, maintenance costs up the whazoo...I decided I've saved up enough money to pamper myself with a NEW car. I did tons of research and and decided the TC was for me. At first it felt too low, but after i took her home she was mine and i loved her and bathed her and put a little air freshener for her to feel welcomed. It ran great, couldn't feel the speed, did great on road trips (from LA to SF), the sunroof was great, iPod hook up was good but the already installed subwoofer?!...yay!, my dog LOVED it, hatchback was super roomy, my friends weren't cramped in the back, the mileage was awesome.....*sigh*..... Then......I got pregnant at 25 and traded my beauty for a Jeep Liberty..booo! I regret every minute of it and wish to have my white lightning back!!.....but i might just settle for the xB '08.

This is the second scion tC which I have purchased, being that the first time I sat in this vehicle I felt as if it was tailored to me. The scion has a the feel of a sports car but the reliability and comfort of a sedan. It has great gas mileage as well as can satisfy the need for speed. It is very safe in all weather conditions if driven appropriately. One of my favorite features is the trunk which can become HUGE if the back seats are put down. Also, although it is a two door, there is good leg room in the back and it is mostly comfortable.

I got my tc back in 2008 (new) and I still love it. It handles well and gets me where I need to go when I need to go. I also had touch screen navi put in mine so it's a sweet, sweet ride. My only nit pick is that I'm 6'0" tall so I fit perfectly in the driver seat (which you can adjust low) and that's it- everywhere else (especially the back seat) is pretty tight. Other than that, it's a keeper.

have 6k on it and still love it.

by from Saint Joseph, MO on June 30, 2008

althought i didn't get all the features i wanted (opted for the spec package), I'm still in love with this car. This is by far one of the best handleing fwd cars from the factory on the road today.

I purchased my TC 4 years ago, brand new.. paid 20k with some extras, which is a great value! Im a single irresponsible 26 year old and whom couldnt picked a better car! My TC now has almost 50k miles and my only expenses have been a set of tires, break pads and oil changes.. such low maintenance and good gas mileage.. It has all the technology I need (ipod dock most importantly without all the weird cables) great speakers and lots of little compartments! I can fit all my ikea stuff in the back and my dogs crate! This is the perfect girls car, but dont get me wrong it can also speed! Now my only little complaint is that the moontoof tends to make a little bit of noise but I cannot really even hear it with my loud music ;)

I purchased a tC brand new about two years ago. I've had many compliments on the exterior styling, and would have to say the gas mileage was terrific. Interior room was sufficient for a small car. Never had any issues with handling, although the original tires had to be replaced after just 25K miles. Performed great as a little car, but eventually needed something bigger like a truck to haul things. All in all, I would recommend this to anyone.
