Great Car For Day To Day Commuting — This car saves lots of money on gas. Great for day to day commuting. The back seats recline and fold down for large item storage. I would highly recommend this car for those who are on a budget. Overall Great Car!

Love It! — Handles wonderfully, easy to modify, looks nice, comfortable ride. No issues with car, just regular upkeep. Good on gas mileage. Does take full synthetic oil and high grade fuel however. Car is extremely fun to drive! Enought room inside for self, passanger, and kiddo in the back. Also, duel 12's in the hatch/trunk space.

Super fun to drive, very torquey, great build quality, great features for price

Cons

Gas mileage isn't nearly as good as my Civic was, but still OK.

2006 Scion Tc — * Performance: Most fun car to drive I've ever owned. The 2.4L I-4 gets respectable gas mileage (25/30) and has a ton of hp/torque for its size, stock (160hp/165tq) which makes is a blast to rock around. (Plus, the mods I've done help out even more with the tq/hp and throttle response) * Build Quality: Best quality I've ever had in a compact car - far superior to even my dearly loved 2000 Honda Civic EX, and I'm pretty sure a lot of that has to do with the fact that it's built 100% in Japan. (The Civic was built in the US) * Appearance: I really like it. Looks great to me! * Cost of ownership: Haven't spent any money on maintenance besides oil, which could be due to the fact that it's got less than 30k miles on it. =) * Fun factor: Most fun car I've ever owned, by far. =D

A Great Daily Driver, The Rebith Of The 93 Civic: Alway Cool, Alway Reliable, Easy To Trixe — for the price u pay- it's a torque monster- but could befinitly use more high end HP. I upgraded the brakes to EBC- Slot/drill rotors and green stuff for better braking. Great built quality- Toyo. Apperarance- everyone looks at it wether to hate or admire they still look and its usauly a way more expensive ride hateing. nothing extra but oil and gas- one time had the Cat/ REPLACED under warrenty- seemed defective from factory. Fun To drive..?..tons of points and lost of Lic about twice..maybe a little too fun to drive..or maybe i'm just a idiot..i think we all have our moments.

Scion — I enjoyed driving this car. It handled well in the snow. I used it to go to and from work. It is very economical as far as maintenance and gas mileage. I am now retired and do not use this car anymore.

Fun To Drive! — Extremely reliable and handles well. Looks great with tinted windows. Very safe car (rated excellent) with front and side curtain air bags on both sides. Very good acceleration. Front seats are very comfortable. Stereo system is good for a factory install.

Pros

Super comfortable, great handling, and base model comes with a lot of features.

Cons

Not very good in the snow, but that is expected since its a sports car. Not good to use as family car.

Great First Car, Inexpensive With A Lot Of Features. — Awesome vehicle, fun to drive, great handling, feels safe. I love the appearance of the car both inside and out. I felt like it came with many features although it was a base model. Would definitely recommend this car to someone looking for an inexpensive sports car, who doesn't have any kids.

Sweet Little Car — I overall love the looks and the driveability of my car I have absolutely noting to complain about everything is easy to get to and Toyota did a good job with this car. The car handles smooth with which ever way you turn the wheel it goes it also has a lot of power for such a little engine
