Good ole dependable manual.

2005 Scion tC 3dr HB Manual (Natl)

My 2006 scion tc is not much in luxury but it is really dependable. I do not have many issues besides your normal wear and tear from daily commutes! I have had this car for 3 years now and the only thing I have needed to change is the alternator. It goes to show that when you have a dependable car and you maintain it well it can last a long time.

2005 Scion tC, trunk handle breaks off easily

2005 Scion tC 3dr HB Manual (Natl)

The trunk latch is held on by plastic clips. Eventually, the pressure (from opening), will break the clips. The trunk handle completely breaks off, and hangs on by the light cord. You'll notice many of these cars have taped the trunk handle on. This is the biggest issue with this car.

Good car but has it is flaws.

2005 Scion tC 3dr HB Manual (Natl)

The front bumper is easy to break and the trunk latch breaks very easily. The car drives very nicely and is fun to drive. I wish the back seats were a little bigger and easier to get into. The seat belts could be a little more comfortable. But all in all it is a good car.
