Spacious scion tc with double moonroof.

This was my first vehicle purchase and it was reasonably priced. It was a brand new car at the time and it did not disappoint for a 24 year old. Love the double sunroof and all the space that is has. The seats fold down and you can fit larger items easily. It is been pretty much maintenance free besides the usual oil change. I have a manual transmission and have never had any issues. It is been a reliable vehicle for me for over 13 years. Even though it is only a two door vehicle, I have had no issues with putting a car seat in it.

Toyota reliability with enough trunk space to carry anything you may need.

The car has a very reliable engine, however the body work is less sturdy and often has to be repaired or replaced. The CD player that is factory standard is flawed and will short out and quit working, this usually occurs when at full capacity. The car rides comfortably if a bit low to the ground and gets good gas mileage. The styling is not bad, and the hatchback allows for a lot of room in the back when the seats are down, despite the small size of the car.

Excellent buy for the $. No major problems at 220, 000 miles.

This has been one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. The only thing I have had to have done or it is have new tires a few times and regular oil changes. It is absolutely amazing how well it has held up. I have drove it in the Midwest during the winter no problems I have drove it in Florida in searing heat and no problems. It is really been a great vehicle all around. I am still amazed at how well it has held up see it has 220, 000 miles on it.
