The gas mileage is mediocre. It's got great style. Small dings and scratches that were poorly covered by the wrong shade of paint. The speakers make a god awful noise every time I hit a bump on the road. It is highly...i mean HIGHLY annoying. Not sure if it's covered under warranty but I doubt it.
Great Car for my Teenage Daughter
2006 Scion tCMommy Salami - Florida02/07/2008
I bought this car for the "family" but actually for my teenage daughter to use. She told me that she liked Scions but I equated them with those little rolling boxes that Scion first came out with. Wow, I was wrong. The tC is a beautiful little sporty car, all the bells and whistles, plus sun roof. The interior is definitely designed for the younger set. But the handling and stability is pure Toyota. And the price is extremely reasonable. Leave it to Toyota to reinvent themselves to suit their consumers. (Remember Lexus of the 80's me-generation?) I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.
Scion tC Overview
The Scion tC is a two-door coupe with a surprisingly sporty performance. As a car that blends both style and practicality, the tC has few rivals on the road. With a variety of customization opportunities, sharp looks, and a coupe body style, the tC appeals especially to used car buyers seeking a stylish exterior look and interior cabin.
Scion tC History
The first-generation Scion tC was introduced in 2005. The coupe received a redesign in 2011 and has remained relatively unchanged ever since. Launched in 2005, the Scion tC has a sleek appearance and a cockpit-like instrument panel. The second generation Scion tC is more chiseled than the first-generation model, ensuring the tC remains stylish and feature-rich.
How It Drives
Ride quality has improved a lot in the second edition, but the vehicle may still feel a little snug. Performance is not stellar, but is reasonable. The fuel efficiency and style are the Scion tC's more redeeming traits. Any used car buyer seeking a commuter car should consider the tC.
Used Scion tC Value
The Scion tC is a stylish and practical vehicle with a cool look, coupe body style, and a variety of customization options to make it more accessible to used car buyers looking for specific vehicle features. The Scion tC has few rivals in this space, but the Honda Civic's coupe version satisfies a similar niche.
Scion tC Standard Features
Scion tC models come standard with 2.4L four-cylinder engines, with second generation tC models equipped with more powerful four-cylinder engines now. They were tied to either six-speed manual transmission or automatic transmissions. Standard features include a sunroof and modern features such as Bluetooth connectivity and in-car navigation.
