I just purchased my first Scion! 2016 iM... So far I'm really enjoying it. Nice to drive and way better fuel economy than my 3 other vehicles.

It took me a while before i got used to the power... I found that if u are going uphill on mountains with 40-45 mph speed limit, it is fun to stay on 3rd gear and it only falls below 3k rpm and with decent power... Im actually happy on how they spaced out the gears.

I think that's the key thing with a lot of cars, and that's to get a feel for where and how it makes power. It's one reason why I like seeing dyno charts since you see on paper where that's happening and right off the bat you aim for it when on the road.
