    Scion Tc — I think something is already wrong with the clutch. Not even 4k on it, it sticks but great drive overall and lots of pick-up. lots of interior room and cool storage. the gas isn't that good either, about 16 city maybe 20 highway. but for the price of the car you get a lot. rims, power everything, sunroof, keyless on key. the car handles great its fun to drive but with gas prices it is kind of hard.

    Pros: smooth ride and lots of pick-up

    Cons: sucks gas like u wouldnt believe and a lot of clutch problems

    Fun Little Car! — Love the way it handles! It is like a street legal go cart! With a little modifications you can make a scion all your own and one of a kind! Quick little car. Can be rediculously fast with a little bit of cash under the hood.

    Pros: Looks, My car is a jawdropper. Everyone stares all the time. PPL actually stop me all the time about it

    Cons: only a 4 banger but hey.... good on gas with these prices and still fun to drive!

    Quick, Reliable, Durable, And Very Practical. — High hopes were not let down after owning the car for almost a year. At first glance, it seems to be sporty and practical, with the hatchback and "chubby" exterior. However, after a few burnouts and zips from zero to sixty, you quickly learn that there is more potential for this car than meets the eye. One could expect gas mile-age in the mid- to upper-twenties, and possibly low thirties for those not willing to push limits. The sound system is solid and easy to use, with a built-in mp3 jack hidden in the center console. Everything else on the car speaks for itself. There is plenty of room for modification, but some may say, "Why mess with perfection?"

    Pros: Beautiful exterior, easy to modify, acceleration is more than adequate (5-speed), sound system with mp3 jack, dual sunroofs, plenty of hauling space with seats folded down.

    Cons: Sometimes "touchy" clutch, pricey add-ons.

    New Fuel Effecient Highway Pounder. — Great gas mileage for the power output. Very happy that it has ABS standard with 4-wheel disc and proportioning. Relatively cheap and easy on gas. That's about it.

    Pros: Fuel economy

    Cons: About to call it "The Rattler". Way too many shakes and vibrations for 4K miles....so i've been told its a standard feature.

    Awesome — Easy clutch, not really fast, with sprot muffler it has a really great sound, mine has a short shifter which makes it even easier to shift, it gets great gas mileage, overall its great car.

    Pros: Nice looking, hatchback, good sound system, good clutch, good mpg, straight ipod to radio connection.

    Cons: Mirrors don't fold, not a high tech car, like no heated seats, or electric seats for that matter, no state of the art crap, just a regular car when it comes to that.

    Most Likely My Next Ex. — The car is solid just like most of what toyota puts out. This car offers a blank canvas for tuners allowing them to expand at will with factory parts that are covered under warranty. How great is that.

    Pros: More aftermarket stuff then you can shake a stick at.

    Cons: FWD NE 1

    Car U Can Do Anything 2 And It Would Still Look Good — The performance is fantastic. The steering is the best i ever felt. Paint this car any color and it would look better than most cars out there.

    Pros: everything
