Great buy, fun to drive
By Michael on


2008 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I've had this car for one week now, and have driven 500 miles. My first impression: pros: fun to drive, decent stock handling, fairly quick. So many great standard features, things like 2 sunroofs, cruise control, remote unlock. Very impressive stock stereo. Low price tag. Exterior and interior styling. Roomy. Cons: stock tires don't have amazing performance. That's all I can really think of. Overall: you can't beat the features for the price. It's a great car, fun to drive, looks amazing, roomy, comfortable, well built. I don't really have anything bad to say besides the fact that it doesn't come with great tires.

Best Features

Great stereo. Steering wheel stereo controls. Dual sunroof.

Worst Features

I added a few of the TRD options, as well as one of the Scion options. TRD quick shifter. TRD front strut bar. TRD rear sway bar. TRD lowering springs. Rear pedestal spoiler. All of those options are great. Handles much better, shifts are easy. I would also recommend new high performance tires.
