Great Car

This car met my Expectations , nice sporting clean car.The FRS is a sporting fun car and recommend highly if you enjoy driving! I suggest a six speed manual model you’ll love it!!!


This is a fantastic sports car

This car does not need more power. It just needs passionate drivers who know how to drive at a higher level of expertise. It's also a good bet for a less experienced river as well. Most road speeds are hideously at 30 MPH or less. This care excels on a freeway but especially on windy and twisty roads. This is a sports car by its looks and handling.


My go kart

This is the most fun I have driven and owned. I'm good at getting practical cars and this car is kind of sneaky. It masquerades as completely impractical but actually gets pretty good gas mileage and is fun to drive the kids around in though getting car seats in and out is a definite downer. It's soooo responsive. I love driving, and feeling every nuance of the experience is so good. AND it's so reasonably priced.,


Precise performer precisely priced value

Ever since day one, this car has amazed me. It is not a muscle car. It is more. It is a performance car that builds driver confidence. I could be foolish and say it could use more power but that would be illogical considering the average road conditions where 0-60 in 3 seconds is meaningless from both a safety and fuel consumption perspective. It's fine the way it is 0-60 in about 6 seconds. It is relentless through back road curves and turns not to mention its svelte design that women just love, if that is even important. Buy this car. It will not disappoint.


Most fun car I've driven

A great car to push to it's limits, turn off the traction control and find a twisting country road and smile. Engines likes high rpms


Exceeds expectations

This car makes me smile every time I drive it. It is responsive to any road condition and while in traffic, it prompts many to turn their heads too. The car could use more power in one sense, but in another more practical way, its power is more than sufficient as it rips through posted 35 MPH curves at 50+ as if to prove the road is not an obstacle to stability and control.


Great car

This is such a great car, it would've been better if it had a turbo on it. I like the out styling of the car, and the interior makes it look a racy car.


Most reliable car I?ve owned

The Scion FRS is a great car to own but it has its drawbacks the performance isn?t we?re it truly should but I feel like they could have given it about 75hp and 50 torque to make it the perfect car. Now don?t get me wrong the car is amazing in every other way it?s super comfortable to drive the ride is smooth, it just looks amazing it?s super sleek. And it has a 4.5 star crash test so it?s safe.


Most fun you will have for the money

Don't let others fool you. You do not need to have that massive V8 or twin super chargers to have a blast driving. The FR-S (otherwise known as the Toyota 86 after Toyota ditched Scion and dropped the FR-S naming after 2015) is a sublime driving experience. At all times you feel in full control of this little rocket, never too bonkers or too boring but always ready for you to really bang its gears. You really feel like you can push the car to the edge all the time without a care in the world, and even with the stock exhaust you get a nice purr as you do so. The only downside I can think of is that it has an incredibly soft clutch: the feeling is exactly the same throughout. There is no feeling of a bite point or feedback in the clutch pedal, which takes a while to get use to. The other thing is that since the pedal is so light it can often feel "bouncy" so to speak at lower gears. All of these things are livable or fixable with a $20 dollar spring replacement on the clutch pedal or just additional driving.


Just bought this used

Very sporty looking with great performance, especially for a four cylinder. Very comfortable driver and passenger seat. Back seat very small
