i saw this tc at school today. i also wanted to know why everyone is hating on the tc. its got a great value, powerplant, interior. not to mention all the stock parts. the only reason i see you could hate it is because you dont like the styling, or the weight.
Have you really looked at it? It looks like a chopped RSX!
Its got the powerplant, but that doesn't mean anything cause hp is to the flywheel. The thing is not light! I'm pissed mostly because Toyota discontinued the Celica and MR2 so they could push their Scion vehicles. The commercials make it look like a sports car when really its an economy car.
If you like it really, go buy one. A friend of mine is getting an xB and i'm trying to talk him out of it.
