Seat fabric is very rough and stains are unusually difficult to remove, but the fabric is at least durable. Rear seat is split folding, and also reclines. Rear seat is actually usable (have a child seat installed back there), panoramic moonroof is nice. see full Scion tC review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2006 Scion tC

2006 Scion tC Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 2dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
quite fast see full Scion tC review
2007 2dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
The 2.4 liter 4 has decent torque as well as more than 20HP more than the Civic; it was one of few cars in its price class that would smoke the tires (the dealer may not appreciate this test method) see full Scion tC review
2006 Scion tC Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2006 2dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
gutless, compared to other, brakes weak see full Scion tC review
2005 2dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
5-speed manual is geared very low, which is great for low-end torque, kills fuel economy on the highway (that has been remedied by the 2nd gen tC's 6-speed manual) see full Scion tC review
 

What Our Members Are Saying about the Tires of the 2006 Scion tC

2006 Scion tC Tires: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2005 2dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Stock tires are horrible in winter. 17" low-profile tires have a decent amount of road noise, and need replacing faster than "regular" tires. see full Scion tC review
