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


It's my wife's car, but I do all the work on it. It's a good car for the price, but the engine is very loud. If you do your research you will see a problem with waterpumps going out, lifters tapping, and cold starts making lots of noise.

Another problem I have encountered is the breaks. They always make noise in reverse, no matter what. I'm not using cheap parts either.

Of course my rear hatch broke, It's been JB-welded for years now..LOL.

But the car runs good and does not consume oil like others have mentioned online.

Best Features

It's cheap, and it's built better then a GM.

Worst Features

I think I just listed some.
