Not all that

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


I was expecting a lot from the Scion tC because everyone told me "best bang for your buck" but to me it didn't deliver. You can tell Toyota really cut corners when building this car, and that's why they offer it for so cheap. The interior would constantly rattle to the point I hated driving it. My radio cover would squeak and the hatch would always rattle. The sunroof covers started to sag after 12,000 miles. Gas mileage is pathetic considering Toyota makes 270 hp V6 with the same MPG. After a year and a half of owning I traded it in.

Best Features

Roomy back seats, all glass roof (although adds a lot of weight), exterior styling and i loved how the headlights turned off automatically.

Worst Features

Improve the gas mileage, interior quality (too many cheap plastics used). Improve the BUILD QUALITY (too many rattles)! The car should come lower from the factory. Make the car lighter... it's a pretty heavy for a coupe.
