2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I downgraded from a BMW to a tC, dont ask why, but at first it was very different. But over time it's become my baby. I love how all the people love it. I get lots of compliments. So overall, it's no bmw, but its my baby! And i love it.


Best Features

Aux port, the fold down screen, and the double moon-roof.


Worst Features

More horsepower, supercharger too expensive. And better grip on the road!

2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

have driven 25k miles in the first year of ownership, and my only complaint is disappointing gas mileage: 90% of my driving is highway, yet i only realize 29.5-31.5mpg. i expect more from a small car with 4cyl engine. i have a bit of a rattle, unfound/unfixed by dealer, from the sunroof depending on the weather. the upgrade ipod stereo isn't fantastic, and even at max volume can be hard to hear on the highway. engine was a bit lumpy for the first 20k miles, but it's smoother now. handles ok. steering and brakes good. interior is a nice place to spend time, and seats are comfy. hvac isn't the best system i've used. headroom limited for anyone above 5'10".


Best Features

styling, glass roof, interior.


Worst Features

more economical engine, 6-speed trans, louder stereo with better ipod interface, less flimsy rear hatch cover, more headroom.

2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I was extremely pleased the first 12 months. However, for the past 4 months, a a sharp clicking rattle-like noise started to occur and became increasingly persistent as time went by. It took literally 8 visits to the dealer before the problem - faulty sunroof construction - was detected by me from researching tC noise rattles on the web. Upon hearing that there was a Toyota Service Bulletin (TSB) on the earlier models at a tC Owners Blog, I showed the article to the dealer. He then advised that there was a second TSB that I qualified for, and after I left the car with the dealer for 2.5 days, I got a completely new sunroof - all new glass and rails. Now, I'm in "heaven" again.


Best Features

Steering wheel-mounted stereo controls, rapid acceleration from start.


Worst Features

More headroom. I'm six foot and sometimes I have to tilt back or literally push up on the sunroof cover to get it off my head.

2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Owned a 2007 tC for the past year and loved the way it has performed so far. This car handles very well at 100 plus mph, thanks to its fully independent supension. No doubt I will be getting a turbocharger to give it the extra punch it needs but it'Ts a great daily commuter and weekend fun to drive toy.


Best Features

Everything about it.


Worst Features

This particular model should have a high performance variant to compete with the EVO and the WRX head to head. It already kills them both on good looks alone. Add AWD and twin turbocharged with at least 350hp and people will pay $40k plus for it.
