2007 Scion Tc —

The best thing and worst thing about the tC are the gear ratios. First gear is extremely short, you should shift out of it in everyday driving at 12-15mph. The 2007 model has a nasty fuel cutoff which kicks in when you hit hit the rev limiter cutting acceleration for 2 seconds. The car needs a limited slip differential, because the engine has so much torque it tends to torque steer and one wheel peels in corners. Body roll is mild, road feel through the steering wheel is good. The gearbox is clunky and rough like a German car, the clutch is either on or off like a race clutch if the car is cold, you feel like you're a beginner with a stick when it's still warming up. The car is heavy, @ 2,900LB empty weight, it's fat for a coupe. Bolt ons help the car drastically, I/H/E and a short throw improved the 1/4 mile time by nearly 1 second @ 14.7 ET. Stock the car is 162hp/162lb-ft tq at the flywheel, with bolt ons i've achieved 165whp/167wh lb-tq or about 182hp/184lb-ft tq. The car is gear limited at 135MPH @ 7,100RPM, and governed at 130MPH.

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

Pros: Handling, aceeleration, looks

Cons: Build quality, weight, front wheel drive

It's No Supra...but It Looks Nice — its aright...nothing special though. very easy modify. Parts can be pretty cheap or really expensive. Toyota engine will keep you running for about 1234958 years. Needs a turbo, stay away from superchargers because they suck and break a lot.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: idk...looks nice

Cons: performance

Never Had A Car Good Enough To Name! Til Now! — Zippy McSilver is my new baby...has a few upgrades (cold air intake, drilled rotors) and going by her name, is pretty zippy considering her cost! She is a blast to drive, I've put almost 75 miles on it and have had her for less than 3 days!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Zippy McSilver says it all

Cons: Gas mileage is a little low, but it might be because I have a heavy foot!

Lots Of Car For The Money —

Performance - Above average for cars in its class; could be faster with the addition of aftermarket upgrades. Overall performance is not bad at all considering price, engine size, and fuel economy. Build Quality - Some rattling, especially when traveling over rough surfaces, but this is easily compensated for by turning up the excellent sound system. 2 years old, over 30k miles, and no mechanical problems yet. Appearance - Love the exterior styling; recommend adding a spoiler to complete the look. Interior styling is decent overall; nothing spectacular, but no complaints. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is fairly decent, close to 30 MPG with mostly highway driving. City driving takes a toll, especially if you're heavy on the accelerator pedal like I am, but still in the low- to mid-20 MPG range. Maintenance costs are predictably high when serviced at a dealership, but so far it hasn't needed anything aside from regularly scheduled maintenance. Go easy on the tires, they're not cheap to replace. Fun Factor - Definitely fun to drive, especially with dealership-installed TRD suspension upgrades. Peppy and tight on turns (with the upgrades), the upscale tires have pretty nice grip in most weather, not so much in snow and ice. Not fun to drive in the winter in snowy regions, unless you enjoy fear and white-knuckled driving. Not impossible either, the car is capable of winter driving, but snow tires couldn't hurt.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice look, good power, good price, decent gas mileage, fun to drive, no known mechanical problems.

Cons: Not super fast, makes rattling noises over rough surfaces, tires are expensive to replace, gas mileage not as good as what you might expect from a compact, not the most capable car for driving on snow and ice.

Tc — It handles good, it take a little while to accelerate. It kinda loud when driving, but it seems like a solid car. Its a very nice looking car, love the turn signals on the mirrors, the interior is nice. The gas mileage is pretty good. Its not as fun as my Pontiac G6 but it goes fast. The sound system is the only thing I have a problem with, it needs a subwoofer and maybe an amp to make it sound better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Goes fast, has pretty good gas mileage, looks nice

Cons: Sound system sucks
