2005 Scion tC w/ LOTS of upgrades

Contact: TEXT 817-846-o4o7

For sale is a reliable, excellent & good condition Scion tC . This is a 2 owner car. Original owner was a female owner that traded it in at a dealership in Arlington, TX. I purchased it from that dealership in March of 2009 and have used it since then.

This would make an excellent first car for a teenager. This year model (2005 - 2006) are my personal favorite as they don't have the ugly headlights or tailights that came on the 2007 - 2010 models. On the highway I regularly see 29 or 30 miles per gallon and 26 or 27 miles per gallon in the city.

Upgrades to vehicle:
Toyota Racing Development (TRD) Factory Lip Kit
TRD struts (less than 20,000 miles on them!)
TRD Springs (lowers car by .90 inches)
TRD 18" Wheels with Brand New Kuhmo AST tires ($600!!)
AEM CAI (Cold air intake) added to get an extra 1 - 2 miles per gallon on highway.
Pioneer Navigation System with handsfree calling and bluetooth audio - also comes with Playstation 2 for entertainment and a AV jack for your iPod/iPhone (4s).
Retrofitted headlights with Acura TSX projectors and a 4300k Xenon HID kit (excellent night time driving lights, far better than factory) They look factory too!
VRD front grills
Pre-Wired for sub and (amp included)
Brushed Aluminum shift ****
Tinted windows

Maintenance and Repairs
Brand new tires installed November 2014
Inspection good until April 2015
Oil just changed November 2014
Coolant flushed March 2014 (good until 241,000 miles)
Both sunvisors replaced February 2014, they are $75/ea at the dealership!
Mirror turn signal lense replaced (chipped by rock), $50 at the dealership
4 Wheel Alignment December 2013
TRD Struts installed @ 135,000 miles in August 2013.
Battery replaced Summer of 2012

The factory parts that will come with the car (if the buyer wants them)

Factory headlights
Factory radio
Factory struts
Factory side skirts

I bet you can sell these parts for about $300.

Outstanding Issues

Both foglights have cracks in the glass due to road debris hitting them.

Paint on drivers side front fender is starting to give up the ghost from over a decade in the hot texas sun

Dime sized dent in the drivers side front fender from a careless mall goer

Typical squeaks and rattles associated with a car with over 150,000 miles (nothing bad)

Typical scratches / dings from being a daily driver and from poor mannered parking lot patrons.


Always maintained on a 2 post rack!


18" TRD Wheels
