An import built in the USA, is it not?

Either way, the tC rocks (I'm not too fond of the xA and xB). 2AZ-FE is ideal for daily. Not a small fourbanger at 2.4L. And the price is right.

I'd drive a tC over a Bonneville in a heartbeat.

oddly that car looks like a saturn ion quad coupe, now why didnt u just get a quad coupe redline, much better car imo)
You think the redline is a better unit? There'* been some reliability issues with the supercharged Ecotec engine, and in the long run the Toyota should run longer with less repairs. Not to mention the tC looks 10x better than any Ion, redline or not.

The tC runs the same motor as that of the four-cylinder Camry, so technical issues should have been worked out since its introduction in 2002.

It'* a decently speedy car, it slots nicely between L36 and L67 performance in a straight line from what I gather. And don't even compare the corners.

Awesome car man, I would have opted for the manual trans, but nice either way. Just wish they sold them in Canada and I would be all over that.
