2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Read previous reviews. I have experienced some of the problems, poor clutch feel out of first, radio door cover squeak, road noise with sunroof open but overall a good looking fun car with good economy and reliability. One feature no one has mentioned is easy access to the oil filter. I can change the oil without lifting the car. Try that on your civic/rsx! Could use a rear wiper and more LEDs on the high mount tailight.


Best Features

Awesome standard wheels/tires, Glass from cowl to trunk lid, snappy shifter for a Toyota, lots of extras are standard!


Worst Features

Smoother clutch, rear wiper, more contoured front "sport seats", zenons, fully lit high mount

2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love this car. I have had it for 2 years. The only thing that I have found that I do NOT like is that I have had to replace 3 tires due to nails. The funny thing is that it came with Bridgestone tires and I have replaced them with Kelly tires and have had NO problems with the new tires what-so-ever. That can get a little pricey. But all in all i love this car and it doesn't do bad in the snow either.


Best Features

Steering, head unit, layout


Worst Features

better tires

2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Has one of the best designs out there with a nice sport coupe. Quality is overall nice and good value for the money. Engine seems outdated and suited more for trucks with high torque maximized at 4,000 rpm and overall poor mpg for this type of car. Engine seems to run at high RPM for cruising speeds, could use a 6th gear and a more refined clutch.Weight is relatively low but there are some blind spots which may get in the way. Its very fun to drive but performance is a bit low for a 2.4L engine compared to other cars such as the Audi and VW which get over 200hp and torque with 2L engines while receiving same or better mpg.


Best Features

Slick and Sporty Design, Hatchback and Space, Sunroof, Fun to Drive, Safety


Worst Features

More efficient engine with more power and higher MPG (Perhaps Diesel Version 2?), reduce blind spots especially in the back, better clutch, 6th gear,

2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I'm a middle aged woman who fell in love w/the tC after an extensive amount of research. For the price, you can't beat it. 36,000 highway miles on mine. I just totaled it--dry roads, moderate speed. Impossible to correct and crumpled like a plastic cup. Hatchback shattered after impact. I was unhurt, but very surprised at how poorly it handled under a diverse situation that could have been corrected easily in my old Nissan. I came out w/compression fx but it could have been worse, especially if it had rolled. Next car will not be a tC.


Best Features

Sporty and sleek look; cost; sunroof; ease of folding back seats down; spacious for its size--have hauled everything from hay bales to walkers to wheelchairs w/ease.


Worst Features

Poor quality paint job; interior plastic molding on hatchback started falling off after only 4 months; less than expected gas mileage (I drive only highway); could have better head room and front drivers seat could go back further for long legged sons.

Review

This car is a poorly made car but reliable as all can be. After the first month my radio door started squeaking. The first day that it was below 25 degrees you could hear what sounds to be a bolt snapping against the windshield...3 warranty claims later and still does it. The drivers mirror vibrated like you wouldn't believe so that was replaced under warranty. The trunk rattles so much it will make you go mad. The gears are too small, with a different 5th gear this car would easily get 40+mpg. At 70mph in fifth I'm at 3700rpm. I wouldn't recommend this car to anyone with my experience without corrections to these areas.


Best Features

The look, steering wheel radio controls and the sportiness.


Worst Features

Refine the assembly to prevent rattles in the hatch, sunroof and windshield area. Replace the radio door with a unit that doesn't squeak and make a seat that is better adjusted for taller people. Sloppy gear movement and put in a overdrive to get 40 mpg.
