Rattles and Rattles but Good Reliability
By Tib on


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


This car is a poorly made car but reliable as all can be. After the first month my radio door started squeaking. The first day that it was below 25 degrees you could hear what sounds to be a bolt snapping against the windshield...3 warranty claims later and still does it. The drivers mirror vibrated like you wouldn't believe so that was replaced under warranty. The trunk rattles so much it will make you go mad. The gears are too small, with a different 5th gear this car would easily get 40+mpg. At 70mph in fifth I'm at 3700rpm. I wouldn't recommend this car to anyone with my experience without corrections to these areas.

Best Features

The look, steering wheel radio controls and the sportiness.

Worst Features

Refine the assembly to prevent rattles in the hatch, sunroof and windshield area. Replace the radio door with a unit that doesn't squeak and make a seat that is better adjusted for taller people. Sloppy gear movement and put in a overdrive to get 40 mpg.
