2011 Toyota Scion tC review

The Scion tC is a perfect first car for young adults. I was 19 when I bought mine and I absolutely loved it. The seats are very comfortable, they hug you. The sunroof is great in the summertime. As I got older the only thing I don't really like is that it only has 2 doors. I use my car to transport kids and it is a pain to get the kids in and out of the car.

Scion tc, the perfect daily driver.

Car is smaller, yet the hatchback is useful. Easily carry boxed furniture, or luggage. Great on gas, comfortable on the inside. Power has never been an issue. Reliability is top notch, have never had a problem in over 4 years of ownership. Great first car/daily driver.

It has a sunroof and a moonroof.

I love my scion, gets very reasonable gas mileage for being a 2 Door more sport style car. The only negative thing I have to say is that I have to change the tires more frequently than normal.
