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


I bought mine used after reading mostly good things for a not-too-expensive sporty coupe. I think that the car should get better fuel mileage for a relatively small engine. Also, the interior materials are fairly easily marred from a simple wedding ring or touching it with your key. On the good side, it has plenty of torque and is a great car to learn to drive a manual or if you don't have good knees but still want a manual as a lot of shifting is not required for function.

Best Features

Standard features: sunroof, cd player, panoramic roof, keyless entry. Enough torque to get moving easily.

Worst Features

A sixth gear that is an overdrive gear for cruising. 3200 RPM in 5th at 60 isn't very respectable. Better interior finish and materials.
