My Next Car Too
Source: Cars.com

..."I had a 2005 scion tc from 2007 until 2011. I had a really bad accident and actully managed to roll my car over.
Myself and my pasenger both walked out of the car completely unharmed. I highly recommend this car and will be purchasing another as my next investment."...

Amazing car!
Source: Edmunds

...I bought this car 3 days ago and I LOVE it! I was actually looking at pontiac g5's and Chevy Malibus before being dragged to look at Toyotas by my parents.
I didn't really like anything I saw until I saw the Scion.
I am not a fan of hatchbacks or small cars at all, but after test driving it and all the features it had just as a stock car I was impressed.
It has a lot of torque for such a small car and is so much fun to drive. It doesn't even look like the ugly boxy cars I pictured as Scions...

LOVE my tC!!!!

..."I have had my tC for 5 months and I absolutely love it.
Looks great and very roomy for a coupe. Love the ipod features and very fuel efficient. I get several compliments on my Scion and wouldn't trade it for the world."...

Very enjoyable car!
Source: Cars.com

..."I purchased my used 2008 tC a few weeks ago. I knew nothing of this car until I decided that I needed a smaller, more fuel-efficient car.
I love Toyotas but I was not impressed with the Yaris, Matrix, or Corolla - I was looking for something a bit more sporty.
I came across this used Scion tC at the Toyota lot and was immediately impressed with its sporty looks and value for the price.
I did my research and bought it with no doubt in my mind that I made a great choice.
It handles like a much more expensive sports car. The sound system is amazing. I would recommend this...

Best under-$20k car, and it's sexy too
Source: Edmunds

...The drive, comfort and handling impressed me from day one. Plenty of pickup, great visibility, a pleasure to drive. Plus the TC is a great value $$$.160-watt stereo has too much bass for my tastes but it has great iPod interfacing. Logical interior layout. The moonroof is terrific. Good gas economy. Roomier on the inside than it looks from the outside. Large cargo space with back seats folded down. I get lots of compliments on how my silver TC looks. It's a sleek & sexy car. All the other Scions look clunky to me but the TC stands out. I don't think there's a better new car for under $20k out...

Great Car

...Just picked the car up today. I love the ride and handling.
A truly fun car to drive. I do not have problems with headroom (I am over 6 ft tall). Gas mileage is ok.. Could be slightly better but good nonetheless. I am a bit jaded, coming from a Nissan Versa...

Perfect

...I just got my scion tc as a first car. it is perfect!
after going to 8 dealerships i did find haggling. i special ordered it and pretty much got the spoiler and upgraded radio for free.
everything on it is great. my friend has one and says the only con is that the tires only last about 15k...

Awesome Car!

...This car has some serious pep! I went from driving a VW Jetta with 115hp and 122lb.
foot of torque. I love everything about this car. The interior is awesome, very easy to read the dials and is truly a sports coupe hatchback.
I had a problem with my Jetta not starting in cold weather, I live in Michigan, and it gets well below zero, my jetta wouldn't start, but my Scion will, with ease. I no longer own the Jetta...

Awesome Car at Awesome Price
Source: Edmunds

...I have owned this car for almost a year and I must say I still love to drive it.
I have owned allot of cars over the years and I usually get bored with them after a few months, but not my tC.
This car has the necessary power, style and comfort to keep you coming back for more.
I really like that Toyota did the first two scheduled maintenance services for free.
The car is put together well and offers a spacious sleek design for a coupe.
I went from driving a truck to my tC and I haven't missed my truck, aside from the occassional need to haul something big. I got the...
