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


I have had this car for over 3 years; I have grown to HATE it. It is so small. It is so cheap, you really do get what you pay for when it comes to Scion. The car makes noise, hit a bump and you will hear the car make noise for the rest of your life, it creeks and rattles over every bump. The front bumper scrapes on EVERYTHING. The sunroof whistles, the rear hatch does not stay up, a/c condensation leaked into the radio - I now have no radio/speakers, mpg should be better, tires (no matter what brand) slide/slip in rain/snow and need replacing fast, brakes don’t last the same of other cars. Poorly built car, very disappointing coming from Toyota.

Best Features

rear seats that recline, parking lights make the car look great. That's about it, it looks like a nice car, until you own one.

Worst Features

MPG, build quality (!!), a working radio would be nice. Buy a Subaru (you might as well, same MPG), it's bullet proof. :)
