Great Price, Great Value!
By Tony Nguyen on


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


First car to own; one of many cars driven. Value for its price is above outstanding. Looks great, and IS great as the parts are all made with Toyota quality. I drive about 75 miles per day in Houston weather, and do not have much to complain about. The standard tires are a bit below average, (slide during not too aggressive turns). The radio door squeaks (nothing a bit of oil can't fix though). Has projector headlights which is a GREAT plus! The only major problem is the coin/change compartment. DO NOT put pennies or dimes in there! They will fall through the hinge hole and cause the compartment to NOT open up fully anymore! Be caution of this. Otherwise, Great Value Car!

Best Features

Great brand name music system. Standard bass included! Comfortable seats. Nice wheels, not just hub caps. Can personalize radio start up message. More room than Civic!

Worst Features

Improve gas mileage a bit. Reduce curb weight (one of the heaviest compact sports car there is). Change iPod connector location (is it inside the arm rest compartment with its back towards you. Do they expect you to put your head all the way in the compartment to plug it in!). Less squeaky hinges
