Is it a good buy? Or too big of a risk?


Topic starter

Hey Scotty, I'm a big fan. I am contemplating trading in my 2016 honda accord coupe automatic CVT for a 2014 scion TC manual transmission to save some money on a payment and drive a stick shift. The scion has around 64,000 miles on it and appears to be in good condition. But I have heard rumors that there are issues with the manual transmission in the TC. Any information on that topic and how serious it could get?

Have a mechanic check it out pre-purchase. It's really the only way to know what you are getting into.

I personally wouldn't make that trade, but everyone has their opinions.


Where did this vehicle coming from? Dealership? I would run away if it has problems. I would look somewhere else.

I would say that is a downgrade.  If the car really would work better for you, have a mechanic inspect it and proceed from there.
