2006 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


We bought a 2006 Scion tc 6 months ago. It had 50,000 miles on it so we thought it would be a good dependable car for us.

First off the gas mileage is horrible for a car this size. We have gotten 26 at best averaging 24. The seats are not comfortable on long trips. We have had several check engine lights come on where the mechanic could find nothing wrong. Last night my wife was driving it home and noticed smoke billowing out from under the hood. We took it to a mechanic and found out that it needs a new motor because of a common problem with the head and block. The price tag to fix this is over $6000. This is a common issue
that I found out Toyota refuses to recall and take care of.

Worst Features

I wish Toyota would stand behind their cars and recall the cars affected by their mistake.
