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


Review

The handling is exceptional in corners, and the feel of the road you get in the wheel is exciting. The inner design of the vehicle when you look out immerses you in its whole driving experience. Though I'm usually distracted with all the buttons and plentiful doo-dads, sometimes I do realize that I am driving, and possibly should stop playing around with it. The car is so much fun to drive, what I described to you is a day-to-day occurance. I don't think I could have picked a more tailored-fit car to my needs and get more than I expected for a very fair price.


Best Features

Front retracting moonroof, rear still-moon roof. Driver seat adjustments for pitch and thigh support (which really helps you relax your legs while shifting) makes it a much more enjoyable drive. Also the auto up and down window buttons make it so easy to drive and shift after opening or closing them.


Worst Features

Possibly lowering the height of the inner sill of the windows, makes it a bit uncomfortable to put your arm up and steer with that hand. It seems to feel like it's too much of a reach, and silly if you do. Given the handling and acceleration of the car; disappointing the car isn't over 200hp.

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


Review

I just bought my tC and love it. I've read some reviews of people that don't like the way it handles, but I think the suspension, steering, and brakes are top notch for a car at this price. I love how it looks, sounds, drives, and feels. It's aggressive but not overly. Has tons of potential for upgrades, I wouldn't buy anything else for this price. Best looks, best standard features, Toyota quality, 2.4L Camry engine, 4 wheel disk brakes, great stereo options, I could go on and on!


Best Features

Everything... I couldn't narrow it down, I love the entire vehicle!


Worst Features

Rear wiper would be nice and lower gears. Otherwise it's near perfect.

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


Review

I compared several other cars before deciding on this one. None would give me the initial "umph" on takeoff I like (within my price range and MPG I need) except the Scion tC. It doesn't have a bunch of bells and whistles, and it would be nice if it gave me more mpg, but I love driving this fun car and it didn't break the bank.


Best Features

Sunroof and moonroof, sleek look of the body style.


Worst Features

Fuel economy.

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


Review

It was between the Civic and the tC, and in performance on the road, let me tell you this guy rocks for a 4 cyl. Got the Bazooka sub from the dealer, and it produces an OK amount of bump, but you can certainly get a lot more for the money with an aftermarket one. The only thing I really miss is automatic headlights. It's been a month and 1000 miles later, and I'm really pleased with my purchase! I highly recommend this car for anyone not wanting to spend a lot of cash for a lot of bang!


Best Features

Steering wheel audio controls, panorama sunroof, auto up and down windows, a/c controls, engine power.


Worst Features

Only getting 25 MPG, I really did expect higher from this car. Automatic headlights would be nice, but at least if you turn them on and open the door they turn themselves off. Also, having an auto-lock/unlock door when going in and out of park would be nice.

Out of the Wrapper a BEST BUY!

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


Review

In true light of the topic, this car drives very well. Out of the wrapper this is hands down the best bang for the buck. I own a 5spd tC for 1 year and18k miles, and I find the acceleration is adequate, handling is nimble, top end is good. Brakes are adequate though I occasionally wish there was NO fade. Fuel economy ranges from 22-30+ depending on how “spirited” you drive. I notice a slight difference with the 92 octane gas (here in NY) but at $3.30+ a gal save the money and go regular (89 octane). The seats accommodate you well, though on long (4hr+) trips I can appreciate more comfort. I often travel alone, but with one passenger, two if you include my 100 lb. German Shepherd.


Best Features

Glass roof, good stereo fun to drive, price. The tC pulls 0.81g on the skidpad, halts from 70’-0 in just 179 ft and moves you 0 to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds! You’re going to have to spend $5000 more to top all these numbers. With the tC's modest price it lends itself to tuner enhancements.


Worst Features

Needs better body integrity and paint. A 6spd would really make her more rounded. The weight distribution is likely to throw off the over-confident new driver.
