    Welp,

    I really had to get rid of the Explorer. I hated it pretty much. Talked to my uncle and the cobalt and monte carlo were out...I needed somethign good on gas...soooooooooo


    I bought this 2005 Scion Tc 5spd with 12k miles....I like it...its a nice car with nice options for the right price....

    Nice car, but were you castrated? The TC is the new Jetta/Cherokee car of choice for girls. :)

    Yeah, they are neat cars. I think that butt is too big (Same with the last gen Celica). The body between the top of the tire and the bottom of the window is enough to hang a banner from.

    I like the Tc. I might look at getting one after I graduate from school. I like the fact that they have alot of optional stuff from the dealer. And for the price like you said it isnt bad at all. Congrats on the new car.

    Yea, I actually liked the TC and from what I've heard it isn't all that bad and a nice car. Nice smooth riding and has semi decent power.

    be careful, i got a few friends with Tc's and the stock tires do nothing for the winter weather.

    you bought used. How much did you pay? Here in Vegas Scion is the only brand that sells for more money used than new. (besides rare exotics)
