    2006 Scion Tc — This car had fairly good acceleration... most of the time. I was always having problems with the transmission, and the car stalling while i was driving. The dealer never could seem to find out what was wrong with it. I was disapointed with the gas milage that the car got. i expected to get better fuel economy from a car made by toyota.

    Pros: appearance, sound system

    Cons: stalling, dealership service

    2006 Scion Tc — * Performance: Most fun car to drive I've ever owned. The 2.4L I-4 gets respectable gas mileage (25/30) and has a ton of hp/torque for its size, stock (160hp/165tq) which makes is a blast to rock around. (Plus, the mods I've done help out even more with the tq/hp and throttle response) * Build Quality: Best quality I've ever had in a compact car - far superior to even my dearly loved 2000 Honda Civic EX, and I'm pretty sure a lot of that has to do with the fact that it's built 100% in Japan. (The Civic was built in the US) * Appearance: I really like it. Looks great to me! * Cost of ownership: Haven't spent any money on maintenance besides oil, which could be due to the fact that it's got less than 30k miles on it. =) * Fun factor: Most fun car I've ever owned, by far. =D

    Pros: Super fun to drive, very torquey, great build quality, great features for price

    Cons: Gas mileage isn't nearly as good as my Civic was, but still OK.

    Great Car With Some Quirks. — This was a pretty sweet car. It's a hatchback, so you can load it up with all sorts of stuff (I hauled 12' 4x6's when I built a swing set, and all the wood to build the 6' stockade fence in the back yard). Acceleration is peppy due to its 2.4l Camry engine. Styling was pretty unique when it came out and it turned lots of heads. Panoramic moon roof was pretty cool. The stereo was fair so I replaced it. Car was pretty noisy on the highway, though, and it developed a few squeaks and rattles that drove me nuts. Plus it's a 2-door, which gets old when you have a kid's car seat back there.

    Pros: Styling, engine, hatchback, wheels, moon roof.

    Cons: Highway noise, rattles, gas mileage seems like it should have been better.

    Lots Of Stock Add-on Parts — could be quicker but can add a turbo for manual or auto trans. fun car to drive. toyota parts means it'll last forever.

    Pros: looks. handling. panoramic roof. peppy motor.

    Cons: no other trim packages. leather seats would be nice. electronic adjustable driver's seat would also be nice

    I Loved This Car, It Was My First Brand New Car That I Bought — It was such a good car, super cute and sporty, it had a quick lil giddy up to it- but it ran hard in cold or wet weather. Thats it, my only complaint. Well, that and it was losing value on the daily.

    Pros: tons of standard options

    Cons: sucked in the chicago winters and/or wet weather

    I Drive It Like I Stole It And She Keeps Me On The Road... Most Of The Time — Motegi FF7, Agency Power crank pulley, Fidanza flywheel, cm clutch, JIC Magic coilovers, Weapon R intake. 20% tint. It is in show condition and also looks great going fast. It would do much better with a limited slip, handling is awesome accell is fast for a naturally aspirated 4 cylinder no need to change brakes they work great.

    Pros: Suede seats. the ladies love it. RELIABLE

    Cons: Govorner at 130 mph. front wheel drive

    I Liked The Look, But The Car Lwas Iterally Falling Apart After Few Years!!!! — Many many standard features including glass roof. You get what you pay for....So many things started to rattle including the roof and the hatchback door!!! But, I liked the look and it's my first coup!

    Pros: Look and standard features

    Cons: Rattling roof and hatchback door. The car lacks high end torque!!!

    Great Car For Price. — Great little car for the price. $17,000 for all this? Auto up/down windows, power locks, immobilizer, keyless entry, two sunroofs(one opens like moonroof), 17" inch alloys, 160 horse 2.4 liter, 23/29 mpg. Good handling. Decent acceleration. Good amount of torque. Smooth ride. Surprisingly quiet inside. Comfy seats. Very roomy backseat but not much rear headroom.

    Pros: Handling. Quiet ride. Sporty looks. Strong aftermarket support. Upgradable.

    Cons: Paint is kinda soft. A bit heavy(3,000 lbs.)!
