Review — I put way too much money into this car, Replaced almost everything. Love the car but customizing gets addicting. The 05 was a bad year, the noises here and there takes some getting used to. Its pretty reliable engine wise.

Scion Tc — Dependable car with style. Lots of bang for your buck. Its not fast but is quick. This car is only a 10th of a second slower than an is300. Brilliant handling that is not hard to drive for long distances.

Solid Car — I would reccomend worth buying, many different parts to add on to it for a decent amount of money. Deffinetly reliable being a toyota, good acceleration, lots or torque, good suspension, 5 speed stick ftw. Gas milage is good on average

Scion Tc 05 Release Series 1.0 — I own a release series version of the car which brought many extras aside from the standard features. Some extras include door sills, 18" enkei rims with pirelli tires and red front strut bar and battery tie down. Performance was OK though it had its good days (especially on cold nights). Fun to drive.

Pros

Style, maintenance friendly and good on gas(only if you don't mod the motor, lol)

Cons

not fast enough

35

Scion Tc — I love how it's made for modding and there are a lot of companies that make parts for the car. It can be whatever you want it to be and its cheap and made by a reputable company: Toyota! Performance wise, it's alright, but there are many companies that make turbo kits and suspension packages for it. The TC can be upgraded very easily.

Best Car In Its Class. — No dissapointments. All around good college car. It has great gas mileage, good sound system (even tho i added aftermarket sub) and no major problems with the motor. If you are a college student or you like sports cars this is a sweet car to own. Test drive one and you will see what i mean.

I just wrote the positives!

Cons

When I find one, I'll let you know.

25

Huh? — Love the moonroof and the sunroof! I like the handling- it is awesome. Also gas mileage is great. It also rides very smooth, makes minimal if any noise and is roomy for a 2 door touring coupe. People actually dont mind sitting in the back! Also the hatchback is awesome.

Pros

the sweet sun roof

Cons

when truck door is opened excess water leaks into trunk

35

Verrrry Niiiice — I like the way the sun roof opens along with the stereo pop up cover. Great on gas and I enjoy the TRD exhuast which has a deep sound to it. Very fun to drive around town, not so much now because there are so many. Overall sweet car. Don't get it because then there will be more of them.
