The Scion TC is better than the Civic Si! by Mckean on 04/28/2013. Trim: 2013 Scion tC Sports Coupe 6-Spd MT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This car is the direct competitor for the Honda Civic Si. The difference is the tC runs on regular unleaded, and the Honda requires the expensive hi-test fuel. The performance is about equal to the Si Civic, since I tested both cars before deciding. The Civic was more flashy, with gimicky dashboard lights, which costs about $3,000 more. No thanks, keep your Hondas! The tC has typical Toyota reliability, which is excellent. Fuel mileage is 33 on the highway and 27 in town, again regular unleaded, yeah! The interior is geared toward performance, because the car is designed for handling and accelleration. The seats hold the driver and passenger well while cornering hard. This is performance!
Cons: Some drivers may not like the tight steering, it takes getting used to. I owned a number of sportscar before, so I am used to sporty characteristic of sporting cars. I like the tight steering, but X-luxury car owners may not.
Overall review: For anyone that would like a reliable, good looking, sportscar, the Scion tC is for you. Great handling, fast accelleration, loads of torque, a crisp shifting 6-speed manual transmission, and nice no-bologna interior, make this car an excellent sporting value!

VALUE/RELIABILITY/FUN by El Guapo on 09/19/2013. Trim: 2013 Scion tC Sports Coupe 6-Spd AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I've owned a celica, toyota truck, chevy truck, honda accord, honda crv, and the scion tc 2013 offers a great engine and great sound system.. i love my music! simplicity in design and it's fun to drive. spacious for a compact and is a fairly smooth drive.. I've always wanted a tc after seeing the 2005 -2010.. did not like the newer styling.. but am really liking it now that i own it! awesome car.
Cons: the only peeve i have is the blind side on the right rear passenger side when changing lanes.. besides that not much else. Oh and the mpg could be better.. but what do you expect.. it's got a fair amount of horse power. If you drive it properly you won't waste gas.
Overall review: A whole lot of car for the price.. sporty enough to go when you need to, enough horse power for hills (so far). Sound system is stellar/ipod bluetooth is very nice. I love driving this car.
