View Full Version : Looking at buying a tC

09-20-2010, 01:53 AM
Father in law is selling his Harley and buying a 2006 Scion tC for $5g (106k miles).

He asked me if I knew anything. All I know is it shares the engine that came in the 7th gen GTS with VVTi. If he don't buy it I swear I'll go trade in my hundai for it lol.

That's crazy cheap for a tC.

I can't say I know much about them, though. My ex had an xB, though. What a piece. Matched her perfectly.

Local dodge dealer selling it for a hair over 5g. Has just over 105k miles, one owner (looks like mostly highway miles on it too). He always finds these damn deals and not me :( Hell he bought his 2500 Ram for 7k with 35k miles on it 2 years ago (and it's a 2006).

Its a very good deal tC's with 100k+ miles are still going for $9-10k in Houston. What color? and is it auto or 5sp?

Watch out for front cover leaks, transmission case leaks (for auto), and water pumps leaks.

Honestly that engine (2AZ) is a POS... If the car has ever had a bad overheat, chances are the motor is DONE. IE: threads for the headbolts will let go, head will warp, sleeves slip from the block, etc.

It's blue, 5sp transmission. He drove it and had no issues with it. Inspection of the engine showed no leaks.

I have always liked them, but I will only buy one when it's a grand lol. Too cheap for payments.
