If you like to drive a stick shift, this is a fun, comfortable car

This vehicle is very reliable, sturdy and well-built. I have over 100,000 miles on it and it is still running very well. I keep my vehicle very clean, and the trim, paint, and interior are all still pristine. The car is a manual transmission and I enjoy the active driving. The car is sporty but still comfortable, with a tight suspension. The car has a sunroof that opens wide and there is also a solid sunroof for the rear passengers. The seats run the back are comfortable, especially for a compact car. The back is a hatchback and the rear seats fold down to haul large items.

The best hatchback I have ever came across!

Absolutely love my 2013 Scion tC! I have never had any problems with it. Very spacious, it is a hatchback so there is lots of room. The backseat is very comfortable for a two door car. Gas mileage is very good highway and city wise. Recently moved from Louisiana to downtown Dallas, TX and was able to fit lots of boxes in my car! The moonroof is my most favorite part of my car, but I love the car in its entirety and will keep it even when it is time for me to get a family vehicle.

The most interesting feature this car has is the sun/moonroof.

I love how sports like yet how simple it is. It can be driven manually or like a stick shift car. There is a sunroof that opens and a moonroof. Although the moonroof does not open, it is pretty cool for anyone who is riding in the back to be able to look at. The biggest downfall of this vehicle is the fact that it has horrible blind spots making it difficult to see on your sides and behind you

Great car for the money!!

Nice car that is very easy to drive, but fun at the same time. I have owned the car for 3 or 4 years now and it has costed me very little money. Parts seem to be a little more pricey than the more typical cars. Tires can get expensive. I have more good things to say about this car than bad. Overall I would say I like this car and am happy that I bought it.

Scion tC a great first car

The sound system the car comes with is amazing quality and you can feel the music. It is a very spacious car even though it looks small. The gas mileage is mediocre, but it is not terrible. The engine seems to have issues from time to time and the alignment can be irritating at times. I think it's a great car especially for a first car.

The hatchback makes the car.

I loved my car when I first purchased it. It is sleek and fun. The lower engine cover is easily ripped off and the front bumper is not very secure. The blind spots are everywhere and the gas mileage is very poor. The stereo is great but the comfort of having a two door is not good especially when having kids.

2013 Scion tC Base - Hatchback

The 2013 Scion tC has great acceleration. It is a sporty 2 door hatchback with a good sound system to compliment the atmosphere while driving in the vehicle. It sits low to the ground and is attentive to curves and straightaways. The interior is spacious in both the front and the back of the vehicle.

- Jesse V

Great looks. Body style is very attractive. Amazing sunroof. Great interior.

Stock shocks are not so great. Car is good on gas though. Ride is rough especially on bad roads. Never any engine problems as long as you take care of it. Regular oil changes etc. breaks tend to get used up a lot quicker but that could be human error. Other than that it's a great commuter car.

- Tony C

For being stock the motor is quite impressive.

Great reliable little sporty looking car great on fuel affordable drives super great lots of room sunroof always comes in handy day or night engine has a lot of horsepower braking system setup is a plus my family loves it. With an all around surround sounds powered by pioneer.
