Review of the 2005 Scion tC

  • With a price tag under $17,000, a ton of standard features and a fun-loving personality, we'd bet that the 2005 Scion tC is going to be another big hit for the Scion folks.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    High quality all around, unexpected safety and luxury features, tight handling, spacious cabin, bargain price.

  • Cons

    A couple of odd design elements, drab interior color.

  • What's New for 2005

    The 2005 tC coupe is the latest addition to Toyota's innovative Scion division.

Great little car

Vehicle: 2005 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

I have had my tc for 9 months now and it is probably the best car I have ever owned when it comes to quality and driving fun. Ive read alot of people on here talking smack about how crappy these cars are but there is nothing wrong with them. I believe most of the negative comments are from those who just watched the fast and furious movie and expect their cars to fly or whatever other kind of stupid crap they see in the movie. WELL IT WONT!

Vehicle: 2005 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

I owned this car for nine months and really enjoyed it while it lasted. We had no problems with the car when we bought it from a friend. The car drives and handles very well for an affordable car. I took it to the track a couple of times and it surprised a professional driver on how well it handles and manages to keep up with a modded Subaru sti, honda s2000, and even a corvette in the corners (although it didn't have the power to keep up on the straights). The car has very good performance for the price. I recommend the manual. The reason why i didn't own this car to long is because it was totaled in a freak accident at 70 miles an hour, however I was able to walkaway completely unharme

Vehicle: 2005 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

I just recently had my Tc totaled by a giant truck and my car gave as much damage as it received.I walked away with out a scratch. I had 161000 miles on my car and it ran perfectly, even though I drove it like I was dale earnhardt. I was so happy with this car that my next car will be another Tc..

tC again. Something about a flat $15,000 for a 2007 Scion tC Spec in either Classic Silver Metallic or Flint Mica and 5-speeds did it to me. Did I mention a flat fee of $15,000? I don't need any extra...
