2008 Scion tC Spec 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This car has a ton of great features and is a very nice looking car, but the quality is very very poor. Many squeaks and rattles and the moon roof rattles terribly, the dealership can't fix it, Toyota has no answers for it either--so I gave up, I just live with it. I bought a 2008 Scion tC for myself and a 2009 Scion tC for my wife the same day and her car has the SAME poor workmanship issues. Nice looking little car, nice features, underpowered, but horrid quality. I bought two Toyota's because I heard they were well made--well I now have two, and they are NOT well made. I can't and won't recommend this vehicle.


Best Features

Review

I found this car at an absolute steal. My previous vehicle was a '98 Neon and it doesn't even compare to the Scion. It looks fast, although it's admittedly not suppose to be too fast. I found mine used and fully loaded, and for someone wanting a fun, reliable car-- this has suited me well.


Best Features

Ipod connection, moon roof/sun roof, Pioneer speakers and CD player.


Worst Features

Goes through first and second rather quickly. Could use a 6th gear.

Review

I Got this car for my daughter because she liked the style and I knew the car was made by Toyota (I am a toyota man). This car is way over priced. The inside is so cheap. Only 22 mpg. I can not believe that Toyota made this car. I might never buy a toyota again because of this experience.


Best Features

Style


Worst Features

mpg. better paint. better interior quality. Thousands of dollars less...
