Worth It For Somebody Looking For Reliable Transportation At A Good Price. — The Scion is a great car for the value. It works good for commuting, and gets over 300 miles to the gallon. It comes with nice power features. The sun roof and moon roof make the car seem more pleasing.

Low Price + Fun = Scion Tc — Awesome car for the price. Performance is great for its price. Little torque steer, and one wheel peels. Quality is awesome its Toyota. Clean and sporty looking. Not very costly. Gas is moderate. Fun to drive, customize, and look at!

stock suspension, steering wheel doesn't tilt

Best Bang For Its Buck — 5 speed is definately the way to go with this car. The shifting is so fluid and the car responds really nice. The throw is short, so many times I can shift with just a flick of my wrist. For the price tag it came with, the tC surpassed my expectations in performance, quality, handling, and enjoyment!

Reclining rear seats! Love how its a hatchback car but still got a lot of room.

Cons

None...that I know of. x)

Love My Car! Scion Tc #1!!! — I love my car. The rear reclining seats were made to do so, because they wanted to market the Scion tC as a car to "socialize" in (and no, I don't mean hint-hint). I have a cold intake, sport muffler, exhaust system and ground effects on mine. I love it!

Toyota Scion Tc — Performance –for a little sporty hatch this is pretty swift! Build Quality – no rattles, squeaks - nothing broken...sweet Appearance – pretty smart for a hot-hatch in its class in US Cost of Ownership –good gas, 1st two services are free!! Fun Factor – its not bad..and the IPOD hook up built in is super cool. Only problem is young men trying to race me :-)

Scions Are Great... — This is my first compact car but even though it's compact it has a lot of room inside and it looks great... I love my new little car... Scion all the way!.... Performance_ I have no complaints I can drive fast or slow and turning is great... Built Qualities_ the parts are inter-changeable and I am about with God's help I will up-grade my car with different parts, like a spoiler, tinted windows and hoping to put a turbo in it...LOL Appearance- the car looks great even right out of the lot. Cost of Ownership_ It's got great gas mileage. Fun Factors- It's an awesome and very different experience to drive a Scion.... Would I recommend this car to friends and family? Hell Yes!... My younger brother owes one of the first XB"s straight out of California and our family is slowing joining his fun and enthusiasm about being a proud owner of a Scion...

Love My Tc! — Well I have a four runner, and I missed my little car... PLUS I needed something better on gas... So we got my Scion.. It performes fabulous, ownership cost is just regular maintence.. It's an awesome car to drive, fun, the sound system is great.. Although I do have one complaint and that is people pulling out infront of me in the car...
