Good but could be better. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/15/2012. Trim: 2011 Scion tC Sports Coupe 6-Spd AT, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Styling, easy to drive fast, decent mileage, interior space for passengers and cargo, stereo sounds good. Its not overly quick off the line, but pulls very nicely at higher speeds on major highways. I need to use cruise control more often as I have caught myself doing in excess of 90 mph. without knowing it. It is very solid, firmly planted and mostly undisturbed by wind gusts. Handling is decent but sometimes gets bouncy and skittery over rough surfaces, also feels a bit floaty in transitional curves. Mine is bone stock though, from what I understand, the TRD sway bars remedy this.
Cons: Styling, easy to drive fast, junk automatic transmission, cheapest interior since original dodge neon, Difficult to get in and out of in tight parking lots. This car sort of de-values itself. The panoramic sunroof is nice, be nicer if you could open it above 40mph without going deaf. The 6spd auto is a horror show, it will roll backwards when stopped on inclines, and is plagued by inconsistent shifting, excessive gear slippage, unpredictable and often excessive engine breaking, & excessive hesitation (when up-shifting) & too much automatic intervention in manual mode. 2012 Camry shoppers beware as well as these cars share the engine and transmission.
Overall review: If you can't drive stick, or want a responsive automatic stay away. The auto is garbage and may ruin your experience.
