Yeah, how exactly did your car drive when you were experiencing this problem. I have a 2005 Scion TC. I'm experiencing very heavy steering. I have heard a clicking noise too though when I accelerate. Did yours also have heavy steering???

let me help you out here.. the 05 Scion tC has a service bulletin for a new steering rack and new power steering pump. This could be why you're experiencing the heavy steering. You might want to go to your Toyota or Scion dealer (both have this) and get a copy of the technical service bulletin for the steering. If you're also hearing clicking when steering, then yes definitely it has a problem. Hope that helps..

Hi all, I'm getting ready to buy my first new car (finally getting rid of my clunker '93 Escort) and I'm looking at one of three cars. I'm particularly interested in the Scion tC because of the overall look of the car and all of the features that are included with the price. I am also looking at the Chevy Cobalt and the Saturn Ion. After having to pay for constant repairs on my Escort I want something that isn't really high maintenance and is a reliable car. I do realize that most people are quicker to report problems than they are with compliments and that there are at least some problems with every kind of car, but the list of problems with the Scion tC is kind of daunting. My main question is this: are there still consistent problems with the Scion? I'm reading all of these problems and wondering what percentage of owners experience these problems (from the forum it seems like many). Also, does anyone out there have any opinions regarding the "best buy" out of these three cars?

hey jabber.. the best buy in my opinion would be the tC. and the 06 owners don't have anymore problems with it. It was really first year production problems. they are all fixed now. Even the rattles. Friend of mine picked up an 06 a month ago, and he's not had anything wrong with it, no rattles, nothing.
For what you get, the tC would be the most reliable, and the "best buy".. I like to say "bang for the buck" now that all the first year production problems are corrected.
so the only thing you'd have to do is wait like a month to delivery.. my buddy waited 6 weeks for it to get there. That's how high of a demand there is for them. Hope that helps you..

Thanks for the info! That's what I was hoping to hear (and kind of what I suspected). I appreciate it!
