I have moved from the Forn Mustang to the Scion TC and must say I can feel the difference. I dont really want to say how much I enjoy this car in hopes that everyone doesnt go out and buy one, I like the idea of looking special on the road and not common place, but the SCION nation is here, and we are enjoying the ride.
I purchased the car with most options, Sat. radio, 6-disc changer, A/T,Spoiler. Since then,i have purchased an aluminium shift knob, and will be doing performance and visual upgrades in the near future. This is a great car, not only for the money , but in general. The performance is pretty good, and depending on your wallet size it can be as mild or wild as you like. The styling is very BMW'esqe, especially at the c-piller. The interior has a Lexus like fit and finish, with all the controls easily accessable. The Pioneer Radio/CD player could have better buttons, but i am nit- picking. This is a car that is perfect for the first time buyer as well as a "seasoned" veteran like myself.
My favorite features are the flip-open radio console, and the seats. The seats are probably the most comfortable in this class, and on par with anything more expensive from Europe. Also, i feel the car is visually striking while not going in for the "boy racer" look.
I would love to see a convertible, as well as a high performance model like the RSX-R. The stereo controls could also do with knobs instead of buttons, and Leather should be an option.Lastly, I would love to see real tests with cars that have the performance upgrades offered by TRD.
I have had my scion TC for about 2 months now, and so far so good. If you are looking for an attention getting stylish somewhat inexpensive car, this is perfect. It handles well and is seemingly reliable (of course time will tell). Everywhere I go, people compliment me on it, which is fun!!! It is very roomy inside and I feel very safe in it (heavy solid doors and tons of airbags). I also love that it is a toyota (heard it has the same engine as a camry). Definitley a cool, fun, safe, reliable car!!! highly recomeneded!
love the body style, sun roof, air bags, pioneer cd player
the removable part the covers the trunk iniside could be a little more strudy, would be nice if it came with the garage door opener option...
