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


Bought this car used privately and so far it's been fantastic. The rear trunk latch/garnish is utter bs. Apparently it's a big problem with the tCs, but $150 part and $80 installation fee was pretty bad for a flimsy piece of plastic. The car rattles a bit and the moonroof is extremely touchy. Gets really loud inside at freeway speeds. Kinda crappy gas mileage for such a small car, too. The interior plastics seem kind of cheap. Other than that it's very reliable, fun to drive, looks very cool and the engine is very powerful!
