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

Review

When i first purchased the car i was excited and it seemed like a pretty sporty car until i used it for a few months and realize it really isnt. it is sluggish and in the manual you are in 5th gear befor 45 or else it just feels strange driving around. i just want a car that i dont have to shift gears before i am halfway through an intersection. build quality is a joke. over time i have found at least 5 different rattles from all over the car. oh and my rear hatch handle straight up came off. repairs cost over 300 if not under warranty anymore and is a well known problem that scion refuses to deal with.

Best Features

interchangeable parking lights are nice(mine are now blacklight leds) and the exterior looks.

Worst Features

interior is made of cheap plastic that scratches easier than glass, cheap parts, tires that need replacing 2x a year no matter brand/how you drive, shorter doors or one that dont open so wide and a 6th gear or some trans. work because 3500 rpms on the highway is ridiculous!
