pretty good overall

2005 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I have had this car for over three years and I feel I can make an adequate assessment of the vehicle. The car is not made of the best quality parts. The pain chips and the body dents easily. The gas mileage is OK, and I find it hard to believe the manual trans gets worse mileage than the auto. I take the car in every 5k for oil changes/maintenance and have treated it well. The hatchback rattles like crazy in 40 or below weather and the hatchback struts gave out on me after about a year of having the car (not covered in the extended warranty). You feel every bump on the road, but I guess that is due to low pro tires. It is slippery in the snow, but handles well in rain. Great CA car!
LOTS of room for cargo storage. If you lower the back seat, you can store lots! I also the love the reclining back seats. There is also lots of room if you do sit in the back.
