The Ultimate Compromise For The Young Adult. — It's a great all around car. Looks good inside and out, with nice styling cues that seem to hold up well over time. Performance is moderate for a sporty coupe; better than average, but nothing to write home about. Its fun to drive, seats 5, huge rear seats, good gas mileage, and will have a long life of toyota reliability. It never really jumps out in any one catagory, but is above average overall in practically everything.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: For something fun and stylish, but can seat 5 and save gas.

Cons: Difficult to get in and out of rear, no rear wiper.

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.

Pros: Rims

Cons: Paint

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.

Pros: Bang for the buck

Cons: its a toyota.

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

Pros: Can make it your own car, fun to drive

Cons: bad launch traction

One Of The Best Cars I Ever Owned — Performance – acceleration, braking, handling Everything is Great, I installed a cool Air In-Take which gives me better mpg plus also more power and better quality air flow plus the sound was enhanced. Handles great Build Quality – has it needed repairs? squeaks/rattles Other then me installing the cool air-intake its a pretty solid built car. I keep up daily on the oil changes plus the tire rotation Appearance – both interior and exterior styling When I bought this car, they let you customize it the way you wanted. I got the LED lights, spoiler, Pedal Covers, 6 CD changer cuz it holds 6 and the display changes colors Cost of Ownership – gas mileage MPG is Great with the cool air-intake Fun Factor – is this car fun to drive? I love driving this car, its almost like driving a car from the Fast and the furius minus the nitrousoxide blast. I also love blasting the radio/cd/Ipod and i would recommend this car for anyone who wants a custom ride. This car has TONS of options

Pros: ALL THE DIFFERENT OPTIONS ThAT COME WITH THE CAR

Cons: ID CREATE AN OPTION THAT LET YOU ADJUST THE LIGHT IN THE DASHBOARD, THE WAY THE LIGHT CHANGES IN THE RADIO

Scion Tc — Overall, I really like my Scion TC. It was a big upgrade from the previous car I owned. The car's sporty design and extra features caught my eye instantly. The performance of the car is good. It has a nice quick pick-up especiall on 2nd gear. I've gotten used to the car since I bought it and hope to get something with a little more horses under the hood. Other than that this is a really nice car to drive.

Pros: Design, Reliability, and pricing

Cons: cheap components for interior

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: Looks, Features, Price

Cons: Power Lag
