Mixed feelings on my tC
By RichNYSME on
2006 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I purchased my Scion tC to replace my 98 Nissan 200sx-ser which was a fabulous car. I love the exterior styling, handling, comfort, and overall feel of the car. My biggest dissapointment is in the build quality. I've owned many Japanese cars over the years from Honda, Mazda, and Nissan without any problems; this is my first new Toyota purchase and I fully expected legendary Toyota quality on this car. I haven't gotten it. The paint is very delicate, scratching very easily. Interior quality is fair at best, my driver's seat is showing a lot of wear, and the interior panels get scratched very easily. I'm not rough on cars at all and this one is holding up badly at only 18 months old.
