Review

It's a good car with a great value, but doesn't mean that this car is on the same level as the celica and rsx.


Favorite Features

cheap with lotsa std options like panoramic moonroof, 17" wheels, mp3 ply, immobilizer, quiet engine.


Suggested Improvements

the cloth material is piece of junk. the dashboard material is cheap plastic.

Review

First saw the tC at the Chicago Auto show in Feb, it's been a long 6 months but WORTH THE WAIT! Just finalized the tC deal today, it goes back for the dealer installed spoiler in a few days. AWESOME head-turning good looks, features NOT found on many cars, much less in the tC price range...dual auto-down power windows, dual 'walk-in' front seats, spring loaded fold down rear seat backs, awesome sunroof system, waterfall dash, beautiful 17" wheels, ABS, four wheel disc brakes, etc! Ride is firm and responsive, NOT harsh. ECT automatic is great. It feels substantial, solid and well built. It's made to be driven!!! I'm 6"4" and have plenty of room inside.


Favorite Features

Where to start!!? The price, the STANDARDS, the design both inside and out, the ride, NO daytime running lights! The dealership was GREAT as well, thanks Tim!!!


Suggested Improvements

COULD improve fuel economy. COULD offer the tC as a convertible. COULD offer a bright red paint. COULD improve the rear cargo cover. COULD use gas piston hood struts instead of the rod (just a few things that DON'T matter).
