Pleasantly surprised, super reliable!

2007 Scion tC Base

I bought the Scion tC as a young mother with limited finances because it was in my price range. It wasn't the car I planned to purchase but I liked it enough on first drive to make the commitment but didn't have super high expectations for its reliability. At 12 years old it is still running great and holding up well. In fact, I am now passing the car on to my son. The tC has far surpassed my expectations! With routine maintenance this vehicle has only needed minor repairs that I was able to perform myself at a low cost, I.e. alternator, spark plugs, gas cap, etc. The car gets great gas mileage, has plenty of storage for a hatchback and is fun to drive. The only downside is that the 2-door style causes adults (especially those on the taller side) to have somewhat of a hard time getting in and out of the back seat. The car is comfortable though and I have taken it on many road trips with no issues. I also love the sunroof and moonroof combo of the car! I recommend this car to anyone looking for something affordable and fun but also reliable!

Gets you where you need to go but has its flaws

2007 Scion tC Base

The scion tc is very reliable, however the interior is barebones and is low in quality. My car has about 140k miles on it and is still in great mechanical condition. The interior however has worn through the years. The sole purpose of this vehicle for me is to commute to work (50 miles a day) and it does it's job. It is a great car to drive if you are looking for something reliable with a low operating cost. It is not a car that will win any beauty contests or surprise you with luxurious features. Overall it is a great car.

My scion never let me down

2007 Scion tC Base

My dad actually bought this car from my stepmoms sister. He drove it for a long time and took very good care of it! I finally was able to get this car in I believe 2014 and it's been running well ever since. We have gone on super long road distance! The mileage is getting up there now, but I still traveled from South Carolina to Texas and then Texas to Arizona! As long as you make sure to do the routine checkups, it's been wonderful. I don't want to switch cars!

2 door hatchback 07 scion tc

2007 Scion tC Base

It's a smooth ride; it's a little car that very spacious. Has a cover for the radio. Has both a sunroof and a moonroof. Have had my car for a year and have yet to have a problem with it. Has great gas mileage. Comes with cruise control which I absolutely love and use all the time. It's a nice car to travel with I take it on trips on a bi-weekly basis.

Reliability with folding seats.

2007 Scion tC Base

So far no real issues have come up with my automobile. Through heat, rain, and sleet it has stood the test of time. Only kinds of issues that have come up were that a blinker stopped working for a little bit. Outside of performance, the car has foldable seats which make up for the lack of trunk space. All in all, I am quite satisfied with my vehicle.

- Howard Z

Good price, cute design. Youthful. A little noisy and lots of blind spots.

2007 Scion tC Base

Lots of blind spots around the rear. Gets good mileage, nice design. Not the most comfortable interior design, good sound system. Can be a little too noisy especially with the air conditioning on during hot days. The price of car was very reasonable. Compared to the same class from Toyota/ Honda, I am very satisfied with the purchase of my car

Small 2 door sedan with sunroof and great sound. 5 speed manual.

2007 Scion tC Base

This is an adorable small car that is great for a seasoned driver or a teenager. I will say that I would not trust my teenagers to drive it as it gets to speed quickly and handles curves very well. The engine is made to last. I have replaced the radio to have Bluetooth but otherwise no complaints in the entertainment area.

Not Many Scions for sale.

2007 Scion tC Base

I love my car. It's nice very good on gas and reliable. It's black on black. With 20 inch rims. I haven't had any problems with mine. It took me a while to find one. They are sporty and it fits my personality. It's very comfortable and good in size for me. So if you ever want one just buy it. I did and I love it.

Cruising in my 2007 scion tc.

2007 Scion tC Base

The scion tc is a fun, reliable vehicle that requires little to no maintenance. We've been able to comfortably drive more than 130,000 miles. I recommend the manual model because it is fun and easy to maneuver. The only bad thing about the vehicle is the tail on the back that almost immediately came unhinged.

The Scion of your Dreams!

2007 Scion tC Base

I love this vehicle. Has great gas mileage. Took me less than $75 to drive to Alabama from Ms. One thing that caught my eye was the panoramic sunroof! Not only is the sunroof available to the drive but to the backseat passengers as well. I've never had the smoothest driving ride until I met this beauty!

- Destiny M

Very comfortable car and smooth ride

2007 Scion tC Base

Very comfy, just sucks two doors. It has space, great on gas miles, rides smooth, kids love it, the kids enjoying going places they love the sunroof, I love how comfortable it is. It is a great family car, great to go on family trips. The seats are very comfortable, easy to do the brakes

- Megan R

The ultimate single commuter

2007 Scion tC Base

Gas mileage isn't that great because the tank is small, but it has a lot of room in the inside. The back seat folds so you have a lot of trunk space as well. There isn't much pick up, but the vehicle lasts very long. Adjustable seats, good air flow, and a sunroof to experience as well.

2007 scion tc short pros and cons review

2007 Scion tC Base

Currently it's a money pit, overall not horrible on gas or horrible to drive. Would not recommend for someone with children, getting a carseat in and out is a chore. Never had a problem with it stranding me anywhere and the parts for repairs are easily found and not too expensive.

- Kate G

The second love of my life

2007 Scion tC Base

My car has been with me since 2009 and it has perform well. As long as the oil, brakes are done I've had no other issues. It is a sport car and many new details can be added internal and external.I have painted the internal of the car red and the wheels black and it looks awesome

- Oscar R

Fast and sleek Scion tC, great car!

2007 Scion tC Base

Very reliable. Sleek, fast, and compact but roomy. Great on gas, strong AC and heat. Doesn't get many radio stations, but does have an add on option for Sirius XM radio. Had a remote starter installed, but the car isn't really made to have this, so it goes out pretty often.

- Katy S

Please help you guys need a better security system.

2007 Scion tC Base

Good its slow but it takes off like I like it a lot but I want a new car but I won't get a scion I want a truck my car has been broken into to many times I think it is because it's an asian car but I will have to deal with it for now I wish it had a better security system.

- Larry A

It's good for what it is.

2007 Scion tC Base

I really like the size of my car. It's perfect for me but would be too small for someone over 5'9. The trunk is small and can't fit a lot. It's interior is pretty basic because it's old (2007) but it does have an auxiliary cord I use for music. Fabric seats which I like.

- Brooke S

Black interior and dark grey exterior. Four good condition wheels.

2007 Scion tC Base

It drives really nicely after 12 years the only thing that really needs to be fixed is the clutch. Speakers work great, fans work great, windows work great except for the sunroof sticks a little. All around in great condition. Easy to change the oil. Great gas mileage.

- Erin C

Great car gets me where I need to be.

2007 Scion tC Base

Great reliable vehicle gets me wherever I need. The small compact of the car is a perfect size for me and the motor makes it even better very fast and efficient and does not even take that much money to fill up the gas tank and do not need maintenance that often.

- Henry H

I added a speaker to it and the sound is amazing.

2007 Scion tC Base

I love my vehicle it is reliable it is comfortable I do not have any problems with it. I use it mostly for work and to take my kids to school. It has a good sound I love blasting my music. The seats are comfortable I can go for a long drive without feeling tired.

2007 scion tc: performance and maintenance review.

2007 Scion tC Base

The only problem I have had with this car is that it burns oil. After a new oil change I am finding myself refilling the oil around every two weeks. Other than that I enjoy the car, it is a little load due to it being a sports car but I can look past that.

- Austin G

My tC experience and why I love it!

2007 Scion tC Base

It runs very well. It's nice to have if you're younger, a student. It has very comfortable seats and the seats (front and passenger) can move up and back. Automatic windows and a nice dark interior. Drives very well. I have never had a problem with mine!
