This vehicle is great on gas!

The 2006 Scion tc has its pros and cons. I love the gas mileage. Another thing I love about this vehicle is the body. The car has almost a timeless trim. 13 years later and it doesn't have an outdated look amongst newer vehicles. The vehicle is reliable. My car has over 200,000 and still going strong. It is my daily driving vehicle. I not only drive locally but have made over 20 1,500 mile trips over the years. What I found a nuisance about the vehicle is that for some reason, as the vehicle gets older, the oil level doesn't keep. For some reason the oil will diminish somehow. There's no oil leak but the oil level will decrease over time before the next oil change is due. Another problem I ran into was the trunk handle. It was cheaply made with plastic but I later replaced it with a metal one later on. These are the reasons I give the 2006 Scion tc a 4 out of 5.

Scion tC: A Best Bang for Buck car with Amenities Found on Expensive Cars

The Scion tC has no mechanical problems after driving in NYC for 15 years. With regular maintenance it's been mechanically sound. The car is unable to avoid the things that damage the exterior if you have to park on the street however due to it being a Toyota Camry under the body, parts are easy to find and not expensive. In addition there are endless options to change or upgrade the way the vehicle looks and performs. There's plenty of options that are available and the car is now no longer made, plenty of people are selling their cars at this point so after market is always an option

An interesting detail about my car is that I had a cold air intake installed.

I enjoy my car very much. It has both a sunroof and a moonroof. The sunroof can be put down like the windows on the drivers side window and the passenger�s side window. All of the wheels are black chrome and I have the windows tinted while the car color is white. I absolutely love the size and shape of the car. I chose this car specifically because of the size and shape of it. I love that this car isn't square shaped or bulky looking, rather it is rounded and small. Another thing I enjoy is the gas mileage.
