I had been helping my girlfriend shop for a new car, and I kept hearing people rave about the new Scion Tc. I thought, a f*#%in' Scion?!!! No way, it's any good!

So we went down to the Scion dealer and tested out a base model Tc auto.

In person, the car actually looks decent, kinda pudgy, but it sits low with a wide stance.

The 2.4 liter Camry motor is underrated in that car, no way its only 160hp. (With the TRD supercharger, this thing could be fairly quick.)

I also could not believe how clean and refined the interior was; especially for a sub 20 k car.

Not too mention, the car comes standard with a CD player, moonroof, 17" wheels, ABS, power everything, and cruise control for about $17,500.

Needless to say, we were sold on the car, and my girlfriend drove home with it
that same day.

Since I'm going to need a new beater in a year or so, now I'm even considering getting one of these!

PS: I found a good source of info for anyone interested:

No i think the SRT-4 is the best bang for your buck. Not to mention, the Stage 2 upgrade is around 2k.. enough power to make Corvettes and Porches look like 25cent kiddy rides in front of Kmart.

You are right, the SRT-4 is the best bang for the buck when you are talking about power. The tC is not about power but about the whole package. We'll see, when turbo kits start coming out for the tC, which will be the best bang for the buck. Just my .02.

bang for buck is not the same as VALUE.
