I just got a 2005 TC In royal Blu with automatic and I love it! Very roomy and comfy! Im 6'0 in height and have no prblem driving in this car for hours! The seats are better than my Lexus IS350!! I got this car for use around town and work and I love the value and all the options! It Rides great and acts like a lil Lexus! Im very please with it even though it has some squeaks and rattles but no more than my MORE EXPENSIVE LEXUS!! Toyota really needs to work on that but other wise Im a Toyota Product Lifer!
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.
The 2007 Scion TC 2.0 Release is my first car that I actually own. I'm nineteen years old and this car is perfect for me! Before the TC, I drove a Chevy Cobalt. Comparing the two, I love that everything is automatic! It took a lot of getting used to the engine, switching from a Chevy engine to a Toyota engine; It seems to be a lot more powerful. The TC is comfortable as well; I'm 5'2, so it's just my size! I feel safe when I drive the car as well. In my opinion, the car handles great, but it may be from what I'm comparing it with. I haven't had any major problems with the car, and I hope I won't in the near future. I love the appearance of my TC. The only thing that I'm still trying to adapt to is, the long heavy doors! I'm not used to them so when I get out of the car, somehow the door always goes flying open! The quality of the car is also up to my standards A.K.A. great sound system! Overall, I do love the car for the price I paid for it. I would totally recommend the Scion TC to others!
