08 Tc — This car is sweet... its dead sexy. Got it for a show car about a year or so ago... so far the car has been flawless. Lots of aftermarket stuff for it. Worth every penny that i paid for it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Fun to drive all around & looks nice

Cons

No power

Good Daily Driver But Costs Alot Of Money To Make Fast — The car has alot of performance potential but it costs alot of money to boost these cars & its not worth it with as much as you spend boosting them you can put a downpayment on a faster car that's already boosted

Buy It Its Worth It — i love my car! its sleek and sexy and has plenty of power! its comfortable on the inside and has a rockin stereo. its low to the ground and corners well at high speeds so its fun to drive. its a toyota/lexus combo technology so you know its dependable and sturdy. it has decent gas mileage but still looks sporty

Good Car For The Price — Takes 10psi of boost on stock internals like a champ! Built great, lacks some nicer features like power/heated seats, ride is a little noisey. Fun to drive, but cant beat AWD. Front wheel drive isnt the best for performance but for what it is, it does the job great.

Overall, A Very Good Car. — I'll start with the positives of the tC. It looks fantastic and I get a lot of compliments for it. With the backseats folded down there is a surprisingly large amount of storage room in the back. The speaker system is also exceptional, the only complaint I have is that the bass can sometimes be annoyingly loud, especially to passengers in the back seat. On to the semi-cons. Performance is alright, nothing spectacular, but much better than your average car. It is fun to drive and accelerates and corners well, but not like a true sports car. The build quality is very good, I have no complaints about the materials and I have not had any problems with it's reliability. Gas mileage is average: I get around 23 mpg, mostly city driving.

Its a small little car that fits me perfect

Cons

Its not really all the fast

25

Im Really Glad I Bought This Car As My First. — I love the handling and braking the tires wear pretty fast on them. I get 32 miles to the gallon. Its a pretty easy car to maintain. I love the dark interior that the car has and theres so many exterior colors to chose from u can really customize ur car the way u want it. And for only 18,420 its a pretty decent car.
