Is 2007 Scion TC's Windshield Interchangable With Any Other Car's?

Scion tC Overview

The first true Scion (the xA and xB were originally Japanese rebadges), the 2-door Scion tC was a sporty hatchback that debuted in 2004. It heralded the establishment of Toyota's youth-oriented division, an attempt to create affordable entry-level cars that would build brand loyalty among Generation Y consumers.

The Scion tC took the place of Toyota's Celica in the sports compact segment. It features a sports-tuned suspension and a 2.4-liter, 161-hp DOHC I4 that makes it a fun ride in or out of the city, though its heavy weight prevents true sport performance. What the Scion brand is known for, and the tC, is a long list of standard options and an even longer list of customizable accessories. Most of these are stand-alones, cutting down on the aggravation of bundles that give you stuff you don't want. Getting exactly the car that fits your needs is an appealing concept.

Standard features on the tC include full power accessories, a sunroof, reclining split-fold rear seats, an iPod port with controls on the steering wheel, cruise control, ABS brakes, keyless entry, and a security system. Despite its coupe-like look, the interior passenger room is spacious and doesn't skimp on leg-stretching comfort. The front passenger seat also folds flat to accommodate longer cargo such as surfboards, skis, or a didgeridoo.

Though not as popular as its xB sibling, the Scion tC has done well, and not just in the youth market. Toyota's reputation for a quality build, good fuel economy, and reliability, combined with the tC's affordability and easily customized options, make it an attractive choice for anyone looking for a fun, solid, and budget-oriented car. Over its three-year existence, the Scion has created very limited edition Release Series tCs, one for each year, which basically offer different color choices.
