The worst car I have ever owned
By William A. on


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


Although it has a nice interior that is comfortable, the driving experience is ruined by the car catching while shifting. I have had my transmission replaced twice as well as the engine replaced once. This car is under 30,000 miles and only almost a year old! The Toyota dealerships have been terrible about returning phone calls and it has been almost scary to drive. The gears have locked while shifting causing grinding, the car has felt as though it is sliding through corners. I would not recommend this car to anyone! Unless of course they were looking at wasting hours and hours frustrated at their local Toyota dealership. Buyers beware, she looks nice but is really a piece of junk.

Best Features

R.S. 4.0 special edition. Alcantera seats, moonroofs, awesome stereo (only redeeming quality).

Worst Features

Take a look at the Transmission and Engine. Especially the motor mounts. Also, maybe Toyota should listen to the concerns of their customers not just leave them high and dry while still expecting a check.
