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


Review

Awesome vehicle for the money spent. I opted for the automatic for driving around DC and northern VA, shifting is a pain, car has excellent pickup for a four cylinder, good gas mileage ( I average around 30 city/34 on hwy loaded with features, power windows/locks, power sun roof, great stereo sound for stock system, great looking alloy wheels quite decent in snow so far with stock tires (Yokohama S32a) I really love the car, put on spoiler and really looks sharp which seems like no one else in NY does. And this car is not just for young people, I am 42 and I love it


Best Features

Stereo with subwoofer, great looking alloy wheels, sun roof


Worst Features

Rear wiper

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

Many nice features.

2008 Scion tC Spec 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


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.
