2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Bought the '07 right when they first started hitting dealerships. Fun to drive, I4 is peppy, gas mileage is not so great. Highway driving is noisy and high RPM once you get over 60. The Z rated tires that come with the car are unnecessary and wear out instantly. Despite its weight and FWD, car handles snow & rain poorly. The double din radio is great for aftermarket head units. Huge sunroof is cool, but rattles like nobody's business. Doors rattle, rear hatch rattles. Buy the accessories online, far cheaper. 2-in-1 floor mats are nice. Seats scuff easily, not very comfortable. Car is a pain to clean because of body shape. Blind splots a plenty. No telescoping steering wheel. Long and heavy doors.
Sunroof, good torque, no mechanical problems to date (16,000 miles), "Pure" pricing, reclining back seats.
Rear wiper would be huge. Better sunroof shades. Ditch the boring amber gauges. Telescoping steering wheel. I added a nav system, the LED tail-lights, stock sub, 2-in-1 floor mats.
