Scion CT Tuning


Scion tC is a sport compact introduced by Toyota in 2004 as a concept car under its recently introduced Scion brand name. The Scion tC was designed to appeal to the Generation Y market. They hoped to do so by making standard features numerous and optional features extremely easy to add. The Scion tC is generally considered Toyota’s successor to the Celica whose production ended with the 2005 model year.

The Scion tC uses the chassis of the Avensis which is sold in the European market, and the Camry’s 2.4 L 2AZ-FE I4 engine. Its low price (base MSRP of US$16,715 for the 2006 model) is a major feature, as well as the pure pricing marketing style that Toyota has adopted.

The name tC does not fit in with its stablemates the xA and xB because the name xC has already been taken by Volvo for its XC70 and XC90 models. According to Scion, tC stands for “Touring Coupe.”

Release Series Vehicles

Beginning in late Spring 2004, Scion launched the Release Series (RS) line, limited quantities of their current vehicles pre-packaged with individual numbered badging, exclusive accessories and other special features. Limited edition vehicles from a marketing standpoint were used to create a buzz for the brandname, with their exterior colors tending to be loud or bright hues (i.e. orange, yellow, red, blue, green). Because of the growing popularity of the Scion product line and the scarce production runs (most dealers only get 2-3 of each RS model), these limited edition vehicles quickly sell out.

Preordering is available at each dealership on a first-come, first-served basis. To the customers benefit, Scion’s “Pure Price” MSRP bounds dealerships against market-demand vehicle mark-up. Naturally, resale values of Release Series vehicles command a premium because of their packaged options and scarcity.

In early 2006, a recall was issued for some 2005 and 2006 tCs due to the possibility of the glass wind deflector being shattered by debris.

Owners were requested to bring in their vehicles to have a shatter resistant film installed.

In late 2006, a recall was issued for 29,542 2005 and 2006 tCs due to the possibility of the side airbags deploying as a result of slamming the door forcefully. The greatest risk occurs when doors are shut while the ignition is in the on position or when the door is shut within 90 seconds of the ignition being turned from on to off. Owners of potentially affected tCs can call 1-866-548-1851. The recall identifier is SSC 60H.
