2009 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


My first Scion and I am not disappointed. This car has a lot of torque for a 4cyl and moves pretty fast. I would say that the fuel economy is rather low for a 4 cyl and notice that on the freeway, i ride at around 3,000 rpm constantly. Maybe a 5 gear for automatic would have been a good option for the fuel economy. Also, when you gas it for speed, it doesn't take off right away, but does build up speed very fast. Love the moon roofs, and just the over all feel. Other thing I notice is at 70 mph, on freeway, I hit a bad patch of road that made my car feel like it was bouncing. Not a big deal, but was very noticeable. Over all I love it.

Best Features

Stereo, Torque, look and feel. Seriously, just about everything.

Worst Features

Freeway driving lowering rpm, maybe adding 5th gear, More response when gassing, and better MPG. Come on, it a 4 cyl.
