2006 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Purchased my Scion tC brand new for $15,900 (manual transmission)...an outstanding value for that price. Only thing I added was the rear wing, aluminum shift knob and the aluminum pedal covers. Decent styling in and out, good on gas, fun to drive and very reliable. Seating was comfortable for a long drive and the performance was decent for an economy-priced car. Where the economy-priced traits showed up were in interior noise, squeaks and rattles and poor paint quality--at least with the dark purple paint. Perhaps the lighter colors (i.e. white or silver) would wear better.
Favorite Features
For $15,900 brand-new to get power windows, locks, mirrors, remote keyless entry, sunroof, 17-inch polished aluminum alloy wheels all in a nicely styled sport coupe is a heck of a good deal. Add in respectable handling, 30+ mpg on the highway and fairly quick accelaration (at least with the manual) and you have a car that is hard to argue with.
Suggested Improvements
1. paint quality (at least the dark purple). 2. stereo power (with the windows and sunroof open--would have stock stereo turned up to max). 3. better sound insulation--could literally hear grains of sand clinking in the wheel-wells and conversations with anyone sitting in the backseat and the driver and/or front passenger was difficult at any kind of speed. 4. squeaks and rattles--had a lot, gave up trying to track all of them down...seemed like the worst offender was the rear-hatch.
