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

Awesome 4 Cylinder — This car handles great. The 5-Speed manual transmission is awesome. The hydrolic clutch is easy and engages pretty high. This car is so easy to turn into a tuner car. It's pretty easy to add a turbo. It's pretty slow from the factory but it's got tons of potential. It's affordable too! I bought mine with 25,000 miles on it for 16k which was great. It's really good on gas too!

Pros: Good handling and breaking. Good transmission and clutch. Great Gas Mileage and the Flint Mica is a great color. It's fun to drive. Good tuner car!

Cons: Poor acceleration. It can't get out of its own way.

Scion Tc — I love how it's made for modding and there are a lot of companies that make parts for the car. It can be whatever you want it to be and its cheap and made by a reputable company: Toyota! Performance wise, it's alright, but there are many companies that make turbo kits and suspension packages for it. The TC can be upgraded very easily.

Pros: Style, maintenance friendly and good on gas(only if you don't mod the motor, lol)

Cons: not fast enough

Fun Ride — I love everything about it. It is a manual. The manuals are fairly quick. Automatics are slow. It has a touchy clutch. Has good low end torque. Has a very good power band range. Very fun to drive. It would be nice if it could handled turns a little better.

Pros: High quality cheap car.  Quick

Cons: MPG  only 26 for a 4 banger

Best Car In Its Class. — No dissapointments. All around good college car. It has great gas mileage, good sound system (even tho i added aftermarket sub) and no major problems with the motor. If you are a college student or you like sports cars this is a sweet car to own. Test drive one and you will see what i mean.

Pros: Driveability, gas milage, fun, comfort, style.

Cons: N/A

Huh? — Love the moonroof and the sunroof! I like the handling- it is awesome. Also gas mileage is great. It also rides very smooth, makes minimal if any noise and is roomy for a 2 door touring coupe. People actually dont mind sitting in the back! Also the hatchback is awesome.

Pros: I just wrote the positives!

Cons: When I find one, I'll let you know.

Verrrry Niiiice — I like the way the sun roof opens along with the stereo pop up cover. Great on gas and I enjoy the TRD exhuast which has a deep sound to it. Very fun to drive around town, not so much now because there are so many. Overall sweet car. Don't get it because then there will be more of them.

Pros: the sweet sun roof

Cons: when truck door is opened excess water leaks into trunk
