After almost two months of ownership, I am definitely glad I got the tC. I used to have a Versa, but it just wasn't the car for me. The tC, though, is. Some people complain about the mileage, but I'm getting mileage comparable to what I got in the Versa. Cornering is a blast, and getting on the highway isn't really a problem. I'm 6' 4", so headroom is a bit tight, but not unbearably so. The ride quality is good for a sport coupe, and the interior is pretty nice; it's well laid out, with all controls easily reachable, and all the gauges are easily read. All in all, for the money, great bang for the buck!
Long list of standard features, interior design and layout, and power/handling.
Come on, Toyota. If you know there is a minor issue with the transmission (stubborn going into reverse), and even put a note about it in the owner's manual, fix the issue! The car could also really use a rear window wiper.
