    A Great Daily Driver, The Rebith Of The 93 Civic: Alway Cool, Alway Reliable, Easy To Trixe — for the price u pay- it's a torque monster- but could befinitly use more high end HP. I upgraded the brakes to EBC- Slot/drill rotors and green stuff for better braking. Great built quality- Toyo. Apperarance- everyone looks at it wether to hate or admire they still look and its usauly a way more expensive ride hateing. nothing extra but oil and gas- one time had the Cat/ REPLACED under warrenty- seemed defective from factory. Fun To drive..?..tons of points and lost of Lic about twice..maybe a little too fun to drive..or maybe i'm just a idiot..i think we all have our moments.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: A suprizingly spacious cabin, Cool looks and nible ride.

    Cons: should have a 6th gear to coast. save more gas at higher speeds

    Reliable All Around Car — Its a good daily driver, with a few mods, its very fun to drive. 5 speed only, I have never driven it in an automatic. For the price, damn good value and for a coupe, its roomy. I can actually fit my kids back there

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gas mileage

    Awesome — The car is awesome! Very good value for the money. It has all the features from a 10K car more expensive. The motor is very reliable because it's from a Toyota Camry which is one of the longest lasting cars on the road.

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

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: Nothing

    Pros: It fits me!

    Scion Tc — Did everything it should have - great mileage, good performance, good brakes, good gearbox, good suspension. Built like all Toyotas - very strong and dependable. Very economical to drive with minimal maintenance costs. Good dealer service. Good Panasonic stereo. I should have kept it but got an old Mercedes to restore.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Needed a little bit more power, maybe a standard turbo or supercharger

    2006 Scion Tc Special Edition. — I love all that you get. Power windows, door locks, and steering. Keyless entry, one touch power windows for drive and passenger side, abs, tilt wheel, cd/mp3 player. Disc brakes all the way around. A nice 2.4l motor with a 160hp pretty good performance coupled with decent gas mileage. All around you get a lot with out having to totally break the back, I would recommend a Scion Tc to anyone. I am very happy with my car! You have a toyota basically so you know the build is solid and it's going to last a long time while keeping a high resale value. Car is beautiful, sleek and prime for customization. All in all very high quality.

    Pros: Almost everything about this car is a positive!

    Cons: Brakes could use to be a little stronger.

    Tide Car — Love my Tc! I call it my Tide Car (Roll Tide!!). It's large than the average coupe. No one has ever complained about not having enough room in the back seats, even with three people sitting back there! It looks great, and not mention performs like no other in its class. The 2.4 litre in-line 4 is a good perfect size engine or a turbo, though stock it is still pretty quick. The car is basically a blank canvas for any car junkie. The possibilities are endless with what you can do to this car! And just to add to the great things about it, the gas mileage is great! 22 in the city (depending on how you drive) and about 28-30 on the highway. It's just an overall great car that is just loads of fun to drive!

    Pros: Quick, Loads of room, Good gas mileage.  Good bang for your buck.

    Cons: Needs a 6th gear...

    Scion Tc's Rock! — My mom drives this car. It has a five-speed manual transmission and I used it to pass my road test. The acceleration is a bit jumpy when using little throttle and clutch in 1st and 2nd gear but that is the only real problem I have noticed. It is a very quick car and I have hardly driven it hard. The few times she has let me drive it on my own, I cornered an intersection, with an improper apex, at 45 miles per hour to give my friend a thrill. It's a fun car to gun it on, but I have too much respect for it to give it too many hard times. (Besides, I respect my mom too.) I may have convinced my mom to sell that car to me after I'm out of college. With that stick-shift, it is the ultimate affordable car.

    Pros: quick, smooth handling, fun, good looks

    Cons: annoying rev limiter

    I Have No Idea What This Question Means — I love that i turbocharged it.it's honestly 100X faster then it was when it was stock. it's a great car but honestly lacks power at this alltitude. The car rattles a lot in cold weather. but that is to be expected of a car with an all glass roof. Only the front section of the roof opens.

    Pros: It gets great gas milage...... stock.

    Cons: rattles.

    Scion Tc — I put a cold air intake into it and I hope to soon add a cat back system (injen or magnaflow), then subs at some point, and obviously a radar detector...:) Definitely a fun car to drive. Quick acceleration. Good handling. Stock sound system is ok but not great. Bass is somewhat disappointing.

    Pros: My Intake.

    Cons: Bass in sound system, trunk is way too tiny.
