The Scion tC is a great car for the price. Put it side by side with an '07 Civic and it's amazing how similar they look. It drives great for the money. You can't expect the car to handle corners like a BMW, but it is good. It's a spunky car. First and second gear are very quick. The aftermarket parts by TRD are reasonably priced and are locked in at that price for three years from the day you buy the car. I can't complain much about it for a vehicle that only cost $17,000.
The double din radio makes it easy to install 6.5" navigation unit. I like the reclining rear seats. They also fold down flat. The aux input can play music from any media player with the use of a two sided headphone jack. The rear passenger cup holders are in a great location.
Give the steering wheel a telescopic adjustment, make the stick shift a short throw (its to tall), and make the rear sunroof powered instead of fixed.
