Affordable, Reliable and Sporty-Looking
By megster on
2006 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
has been a great car for me for the past 5 years. It has 75k on it and i've only changed the breaks & tires once. never had any pricey maintenance problems or any engine problems! my car has only had some weird fix-it-yourself issues like the windshield molding coming off (glued that back on), sunroof not closing (i tap it instead of pressing it down and it closes), driver's seat chair catching on track (used melted chapstick to fix), and the hatch release piece almost breaking off (bolted extra bolts in the interior to keep it on). But i can't express how RELIABLE
and LOW COST this cars been. i wish it had a sportier suspension tho! also, looks like a teen car and i'm in my late 20s!
low cost maintenance, reliability, engine durability, charocol paint color looks brand new still (really a sharp-looking color), the space in the car (my husband calls it the family truck because it can haul a ton of stuff) and i've moved in it 4 times!
the sporty look of it, all the extras that come standard (17" rims), low profile tires, dual sunroof, GREAT gas mileage for an '06, heavy-feeling car - doesnt feel cheap
has a "floaty boaty" suspension - wish it hugged corners, random cheap touches, ugly dashboard material, no option for tan interior, and the "skipping" feeling when slamming on the breaks after hitting a bump or pothole (but not dangerous feeling, just annoying). but the pros definitely outweight the cons!
