    Great Car For Day To Day Commuting — This car saves lots of money on gas. Great for day to day commuting. The back seats recline and fold down for large item storage. I would highly recommend this car for those who are on a budget. Overall Great Car!

    Pros: Good MPG's

    Cons: Not a lot of leg room in the back seats

    Scion — I enjoyed driving this car. It handled well in the snow. I used it to go to and from work. It is very economical as far as maintenance and gas mileage. I am now retired and do not use this car anymore.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Air conditioning, cd and sound system, 5 speed manual, the way it handles, fun to drive

    Cons: Blind spot when backing up.

    Fun To Drive! — Extremely reliable and handles well. Looks great with tinted windows. Very safe car (rated excellent) with front and side curtain air bags on both sides. Very good acceleration. Front seats are very comfortable. Stereo system is good for a factory install.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling fuel-efficient sports car.

    Cons: Back seat room is limited, but that's the case for most sports cars.

    Great First Car, Inexpensive With A Lot Of Features. — Awesome vehicle, fun to drive, great handling, feels safe. I love the appearance of the car both inside and out. I felt like it came with many features although it was a base model. Would definitely recommend this car to someone looking for an inexpensive sports car, who doesn't have any kids.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Super comfortable, great handling, and base model comes with a lot of features.

    Cons: Not very good in the snow, but that is expected since its a sports car. Not good to use as family car.

    Fun, Reliable, Good Looking Scion. — Like I said in the cons, car is kind of quirky. The hatch seems to be one of the more problem areas; it chirps on bumpy roads, the handle was designed poorly and anchored with thin plastic, and the interior hatch trim pieces fall out of their places. We had an alternator go bad on us, so the car was killing batteries for a while. Overall nothing major has gone wrong, and this car is the trooper in our family.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Awesome little 2 door car. Has a lot of cargo capacity, especially for 2 door. Has really good acceleration and a pretty good ride as well.

    Cons: This car eats tires, and they're pretty expensive too. These cars have electrical gremlins (blown fuses, interior lights going out), that can be pretty annoying to deal with at times, seems to be a common problem among tC's. Torque steer is definitely noticeable. Rear hatch handle is plastic and flimsy and will break on you, very bad design on their part.

    Great Car — Car is good all around but don't let it sit around. You have to drive it. Alot of room for a car this size and the back seats recline and are comfortable. It is easy to drive and see. It's style holds its own.

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

    Pros: Fast, handles well. Good gas mileage.

    Cons: Let it sit for two winters and had to replace the struts as the seals went bad.  Good have been just their time to go or due to sitting around. But now they are new :)
