Driving speed limit down freeway when I heard a loud pop, almost as if a gun shot. My sunroof had completely shattered. I had it replaced and less than 3 months later the same thing happened.

At highway speed, drivers side rear tire failed. Caused the vehicle to become unstable and dangerous. Sumitomo is the manufacturer, and the tires themselves still had apprx. 12,000 miles left on the life of the warranty. Going to have all others checked, and replacing the affected tire.

Failure to hit unlock multiple times on keyless remote when accessing rear hatchback trunk will put undue stress on the poorly designed entry point. Even with using the unlock feature when the front passenger and driver doors are unlocked the trunk lid remains locked. Since this is such a poor design it has broken and the only way to replace is 800 repair bill for new part and have it painted. I have to point out that the hatchback is opened and accesed by an electric pressure point with keyless entry only, since this is a plastic part and is very weak, it only takes a few visits to the car wash or dealer to have someone attempt to open the hatchback with the car unlocked to wrench on this part and cause it to fail. Most modern vehicles have a trunk release button, or keyed entry which would prevent this obvious and common failure, its common because I have seen several Scion Tc's with this part hangin from the hatchback and blocking view of the vehicles license plate, which in most states is an offense and a safety violation.

Purchased new 2006 Scion Tc in October of 05. Since that time I have noticed chips, scratches and paint generally coming off the car all over the place. I drive on paved streets and in a moderate climate area (seattle). I feel cheated that a car less than one year old is having paint failure issues.
