Bought myself a new Scion Tc

I was in an accident 10 days ago when someone decided to come into my lane. My insurance company decided to total my Toyota Corolla 1997 because it had 220,000 miles on it.

I was just going to get a new Corolla when I read some things about the Tc and decided to test drive it. I was lucky they had one left in the color I wanted.




It is much faster and more sporty than my old Corolla. I am pretty impressed so far.

Figured i would stop in and say hi to everyone

It is raining so i am borrowing the image

Congratulations! I bought my '05 Scion xB Jan 3rd and it just keeps getting better and better.

Wasn't it nice to walk in and buy a car that is already nicely equipped?

It usually takes me a long time to buy a car. I was done early and went to work to show it off

A real easy buying experience. Plus the car has a ton of features for a good price.

My friend got a TC just before Christmas and loves it. He was looking at Corolla's and read about the TC in some magazine.

He has declined to get the satellite radio, as he says he's seen cars with the equipment attached to the outside and it looks ugly...

He got the 6 disc CD changer he wasn't planning on that, but it was in the vehicle and the only one left on the lot.

His last car was slowly falling apart, mainly because it was purchased used and over 10 years old.

It's very nice.

The stock Pioneer HU in the Scions is MP3 capable, so I just burned a disc with 200 songs... I never have to change the CD.

Nice I was heavily considering the Scion tC when i was car shopping late last year but decided i didn't want to get a 2 door car and ended up with a Mazda6. Great little car.
