Very Fun to Drive

2006 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I'm pretty happy with my decision to buy a tC. It's great fun to drive, handles well, and I adore its looks. I got a rear spoiler, which improves its looks even more. I drive to work every day, and living in a city a coupe comes handy. Of course it could use a little more torque or hp (well, most cars could), but I would like to point out that I often find myself making turns on the highway at over 60 mph. It took me a while to get used to the gearbox (revving up to higher rms makes the gear shifts much smoother). And did I mention the gorgeous sunroof/moonroof?

Best Features

Very useful interiors - AUX input to plug in your MP3 player, phone holder and nice, low seating that just feels right in this sporty coupe.

Worst Features

I had the same complaint as some of the other users - squeaking noise from the dash (fixed by dealer after 4 visits, finally). My mileage is ~25 mpg which could be better.
