You are in the Scion tC
What is this discussion about?
Scion tC, Convertible

I sure like the Scion tC. I test drove a 2005 Scion tC RS 1.0 in Absolutely Red in Idaho Falls, ID, in late 2006. I was there to test drive a 2006 Scion xA in Polar White and iPod connectivity, foglights and 5-speed manual. Ended up not getting either car but I liked how both drove, actually. Just wasn't the right time to buy.
Glad I waited for my '08 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS. You're really gonna spring for another Scion tC? Wow!

Well, I have good news and bad news.
Good news...I'm back to operating equipment but I'm still wanted to work as warehouse clerk. So there's 80% chance I'm getting raise since there's more important duties. Should raise me to $19.00s.
Bad news...Carmax sold the RS tC within the first week. Sooo, I'm going to save the extra green and see if I can buy something base, if denied I'm using the $10k to payoff some other debts like student loans! In 2010, I could easily only have my car payment and insurance. That's if I play my cards correctly.
All depends on how soon will I grow up? lol

to only have those two payments. Knowing Murphy's Law or just life in general who knows if such a thing is really possible. One can hope, though.
Movin' on up at your job is cool, though, at any rate!

Nov 15, 2008 (5:09 pm)
Hi I am new to this forum...I have a 06 Scion Tc.....for the past few months I have been hearing a droning noise(shh shh shhh kinda noise) coming from the drivers side front wheel....i can hear it at low speed(at about 5 mph)....but for the past few weeks I have been hearing the noise consistently at low speeds and the worst part is now i feel tht the car pulls on the left side....went to firestone and got it checked....they said tht it mite b the wheel bearing gone bad but since the sound is lite we cannt say for sure.....also got my car alligned....but the pulling thing is still there and so is the sound....so my question is is the sound really a wheel bearing issue( i have just got 24k on my car) and if it is so should I goto the dealer to get the wheel bearing replaced and can anyone tell me how much will it b to replace the wheel bearing....i m really worried becoz somewhere on the internet i read tht if the wheel bearing is bad even the wheels can come off....so i would really appreciate if someone can tell me wat mite b the issue

Hmm....I don't know what to tell you? I would take it to Toyota dealer and see what they say. You can get a estimate and could take it to another shop. Get the work done there for cheaper.
I have least five different rattles with mine. One,squeaks everytime I go over small bump at very slow speeds. I thought it was the struts but I switch them out with aftermarket; its still there.
Well, I maybe saving money and move to Aurora, IL. Depending how the economy is in couple of years. Offer to take a position at the Midwest Toyota Parts warehouse. They must pay well since they require minimal 2 years of experience. They ask you to handle a $500.00 starter...you think they will only pay $8.00s or $25.00+? Benefits are GREAT!
I love my family and job....but; I'm turning 25 next week. And the family still treats me like I am 6 still. I know they care but I'm going to be 25! I think moving to Aurora and work for Toyota could give them convince in me and I could live my own life. Doesn't help my brother, sister and uncle work at my current company.

I am all for you moving to Aurora and taking that job. What do you mean "they ask you to handle a $500 starter?"
You will probably be happier in that Aurora job. You will probably mature more or just be free from family "ties" as it were and progress as a person much better if you move and take this Aurora Toyota job. And Toyota is enormously successful, you will have nice job security as well. Go for it!

I'm saying its logical Toyota pays. Just think for a second what they have in that warehouse? TRD Superchargers ($2,800+s), transmissions ($2,000's), starters, wheels, struts....You think they will pay a material handler only $8.00 hour with that expensive stock? They would see a lot of that expensive items break in transport from lack of packing or the handler drops a starter from 60 feet up in the air and goes ahead ships it out anyway. Because he/she doesn't care since they are getting paid minimal wage.
Last week, I had the luxury to put away these strap machines. About 24 of them. I was wondering what they are worth to the company. I looked it up in our catalog. $800.00s! I was looking at $20,000. I get paid above minimal wage because of that same theory.
Did you know at Toyota US headquarters in California has a room in the corporate building that has ping pong tables? lol Also, anyone who works there doesn't have to visit a dealer for service because Toyota employs few full time techs in their own private service area. So employees have the benefit to drop their car off to this service area. Its nice to run into someone from Scionlife who is full time Toyota employee. She just got rid of her tC and bought herself a Lexus IS when she got promoted.

takes good care of their employees. Ping-pong is a cool game ya know, too!
