I bought a 2014 Scion tC manual transmission in blue. It has about 3200 miles on it now. It handles well in rain and snow (just had our 3rd snow storm here in Pennsylvania), It has sporty handling in the twisties due to suspension upgrades for 2014. Looks like no other car, the new wheels are beautiful and hide brake dust. The transmission is very smooth and precise. It is Camry reliable, lighter and quicker than a Camry though. It has plenty of torque which you can feel during takeoff.
The HD stereo is AMAZING! 0-60 time per Car and Driver is 6.9 seconds for the 6sp manual transmission. All this for less than 20k. Plus free service/oil changes! So far I am very pleased.
HD stereo is incredibly powerful and clear!
MPG is good >28mpg in mixed driving.
Wheels are sharp! New steering, suspension/handling upgrades make this a very fun car in the twisties.
Could use the following items: rear window wiper, map pockets for behind seats, a 2nd power point, better material for the inside doors/it scuffs easy but wipes away with a damp cloth.
