I Absolutely Love My Scion — These scions are made and designed very well. Never had a issue with it and has never needed anything more than brakes or a oil change. I give this car 5 stars because of its reliability and the great amount of miles you can go on a single tank of gas. by far my most favorite car ever personally owned.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good handling and mpg. very sporty looking vehicle but also very low maintenance and safe.  

Cons: fabric interior and back seats room could have been designed better

I Love This Car Just Not Meant To Have A Baby In The Back. — this car was very reliable but its not meant to be able to put a car seat in the back. I've never had any issues with the vehicle. the car is very safe and gets pretty good gas mileage also.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: for how small the car looks it has a lot of room. the back seats fold down to fit a lot in the back. the car can get up and go when you want it too. it has the sun and moon roof. the front seats virtually lean all the way flat so you can look out the moon roof.

Cons: there are no cons in my opinion

Reliable — This is by far the best car I've owned yet. Quality, interior room (surprisingly, back seats are very spacious), performance, style and appearance are all top-notch. I had 148k without a single issue (besides rear-brake replacement), and it's unfortunate we're switching it out for a more family-friendly vehicle. Great car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Not car issues

Cons: Small

This Car Is Awesome. If I Didn't Need A 4x4, I Would Keep It Forever. — For being an inexpensive car, it is everything you would want and more. Especially with the stock rims and the panoramic moonroof. I never once had to go in for non-scheduled maintenance and I doubt I would for another 10 years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Car has power, is ridiculously low maintenance, super reliable, and because it is a hatchback, you can fit a TON of stuff in it. It also handles great on corners.

Cons: Fuel economy is not great because it is tuned to be peppy. You really have to accelerate slowly if you want good gas mileage.

Silver Scion Tc — Great fun first car for a teenager. Worked well for me all through high school and college. I've done the regular maintenance on it and everything is still running fine in the engine. I like all the room in the trunk and its quite peppy when getting on the gas.

Pros: Handles well, good gas mileage, roomy front seats, can hold a lot of things in the trunk when the back seats are folded down, no mechanical issues.

Cons: Back seats arent very comfy, stiff suspension

Great Overall! — Like the overall look, the sliding sunroof, the wheels. Gas mileage isn't great for the lack of power. Should handle better with the tires. Have not had to spend any money on it considering the high mileage. Would have another.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Over 160,000 miles...no maintenance issues. Looks great especially when just waxed.

Cons: Gets loud inside when the tire tread is low...blind spots bad
