Love It, but It's Killin' My Wallet.

2005 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I love this car! It has been nothing but good to me. I have had it since new for nearly two years now. I bought this puppy before it was cool to have a tC! It is a nice car, but it is a little low on power for a supposed "sports coupe." I would love to supercharge it, but I'm not a millionaire. It gets pretty poor gas mileage. I've never gotten the 22 mpg they say you can get. I average about 18.5 - 19.5 mpg around town (about 21 on the highway). This car also easily skids in the rain. I think that is more the tires than anything. But when its barely raining and you're going about 40 mph, you start hydroplaning. That is a problem. The xB has really good cornering ability as well. I just wish I had bought a stick!

Best Features

The big moonroof, hatch back, 17's, and sound system.

Worst Features

Offer more options (interior, exterior, wheels,motor, etc.), better stock tires, and more horsepower! Oh, and don't let just anyone buy this car because there is getting to be too many of them on the roads. I liked it when I was one of the few.
