The gears are very very short. Im having to drive 40mph in fifth gear on thestreet! The tire pressure sensor light is always on when all tires are inflated accordingly. Dont disconnect the battery for any reason because things will stop working, such as putting the passenger window down on the driver side button. Also, the sun roof was VERY hesitant to open and i had to hold the button for a good 5 seconds for it to open. With air conditioning and fan off, air still blows through while driving as if the fans are on so you have to press the button to use surrounding air. Dont even get me started on the non stop squeaking brakes. The hatch seems ti even stick for no apparent reason and even takes the rubber with it. Very disappointing car.
A fantastic car. I drive almost 400 miles a week and this car is a blast to drive. The engine is very responsive, the chassis nice and stiff, the suspension is firm without being uncomfortable, and the handling is rock solid. This car handles more like a sports car than anything else. The steering is very precise and the chassis stays very flat when cornering. Top this off with good gas mileage and you have a winner.
If something happened to my current tC, I would happily buy a replacement. This is the first car I have ever said that about.
Quick/reliable/sleek--What more could you ask for?
2014 Scion tCRobs A - Minneapolis, MN02/05/2016
This vehicle has been the best I have ever owned. It's a perfect combination of economy (around 29 mpg combined city/highway), power, and reliability. Even driving through snow with the stock low-profile tires (once I flipped the traction control system off), I was never worried about losing control of the vehicle because of its impressive handling. I love the Bluetooth connectivity and large touch screen stereo, and though I would have liked features like navigation and heated leather seats, I can't be disappointed overall given the driving experience and things that the car has done well.
