2008 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I've owned this car for more than 2 years and there always an issue. The original tires made the car lower than my previous car. So when I park head on, the high curb started pulling out the undercover. Next thing you know, my entire bumper is messed up because its attached to the undercover. A few months down the road, I had to replace all 4 tires after 35K miles. So when I finally fixed that, I hit a garbage bin which knock off my passenger side mirror. Then a couple months, the car wash "professional" managed to break off the rear hatchback garnish/handle when he cleaning the back. Next thing you know I hit a gutter/driveway and my undercover is bent. This car has been a headache.

Best Features

Sound system, interior design, affordable, fast.

Worst Features

A better design on the undercover, hatchback handle and side mirror.

The car is not a headache, you just don't know how to drive it. It never gave you any trouble on its own.
