Will Toyota still have parts for Scions? Like oil filters and shit? Or will we go the way of Spiker?


God I hope you know I'm kidding.

Apparently changing a badge on a car changes the whole infrastructure of said vehicle and is a complete redesign.

More importantly, now the Scion 'pure pricing' garbage goes away so you can negotiate the price... who wants to bet MSRP is about to jump? :I

Yes, the 3 that @chulooz said people could name.

With the exception of the Sky, they hadn't really put out anything interesting. I mean, look at their lineup before shutting down: CUV/Econobox (Vue), small sedan/hatchback (Astra), medium Sedan (Aura), large SUV (Outlook), small sporty car (Sky)

Whereas Scion had the iM econobox, small sedan (iA), medium coupe (tC), announced CUV (CH-R or whatever they called it) and small sports car (FR-S).


Oh...wait...

I had a 91 Geo Metro convert! It was lowered on coil overs, 14 inch rims, ricer front and rear bumpers, all blacked out lights, was painted dark green/teal and put out whopping 70 hp. It was a blast to drive and I had all sorts of people think it was some strange exotic. It would also probably kick any stock twin's ass in a straight line (If you could anticipate the torque steer and keep it in a straight line).
