    Wonderful — Is a gas saver and the cost of maintenance and all repairs and parts can be found for great prices and every where you look for them. Besides parents love it for their trips and my friends love it to just have fun on weekends I recommend this car to anyone

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The reliability and durability great car to hang out with friends its slicky look with sunroof moonroof makes it a great vehicle

    Cons: I don't really like the fact that stands so low close to the floor when it rains is not so good and if you hit a hole on the streets is the only thing I don't like bout it

    I Love My Tc! — Great car, wouldn't have any other one for my daily driver! I bought this little dime in March of 2012 with a wowing 22,000 miles on it, can you say fantastic for a 2005? I can, what a deal. In this last year I have racked up about 13,000 miles without a single repair. Maintenance is a must, but this car makes it super easy to keep the car in pristine condition while maintaining a modest budget. I am married, with no children which makes the tC & I the perfect combination.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: High quality all around, unexpected safety and luxury features, tight handling, spacious cabin, bargain price.

    Cons: A couple of odd design elements, drab interior color. Horrible blind spot for anyone shorter than 5''6 driving the car.

    Sharp — I love this car but my husband and I are expecting our first child and we now need a roomier car. The appearance is very sharp and the paint color is always shiny, it is a very sprty car with a lot of power and also good fuel economy

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The power, looks and fuel economy

    Cons: It's only 2 door

    Love It — 27 MPG driving rude after an intake, I'll take it. Clean looks with plenty of opportunity, I'll take it. Smooth interior with great sound, I'll take it. Whoops an 04 hatch SI, I'll take it. Buy yourself one of these

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very easy to make unique; reliable; can sound great with an intake; fun to drive; nice interior with carbon fiber package.

    Cons: No 6th gear. 2+ hour drives suck. Some interior squeaks.

    Great First Car — I thought that this car had great speed and looked great. but it was too small for a tall guy like me. If i was a little bigger it would be a perfect car. great car for a first time buyer.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great fuel mileage, fast , cheap car

    Cons: very small
