I love my Scion xA......it is my first car purchase and I couldn't have picked a better car to buy. I love the quality and the reliability that only Toyota can offer. I love the design of both the exterior and the interior. I it small with enough room to carry me and three friends along and the gas mileage is awesome. I was paying so much for gas and now I pay a lot less.
The Pioneer sound system, the center instrument cluster, and the ability to make it match my personality. I also love the color. The Phantom Grey is the best.
The engine power... it is lacking to say the least, but I also get 38 miles per gallon soooooo can't complain too much there.
The Scion XA is a fun, reliable car with great fuel economy and versatility (i.e. transporting five passengers or putting the seats down and taking dogs and gear to the beach.) Great for long trips, always comfortable, and always good for drawing just the right amount of attention from passersby. "What kind of car is that?" I've never seen one before. It has also really retained it's value very well, despite the high mileage I put on it! Well done, Scion XA (aka MiniCooper on steroids)!
It would be great if they made a hybrid hatchback that got even better gas mileage, yet offered the versatility of convertible seats.
I love my car! Its nice to have a compact car that sits higher and not on the floor. It handles nicely, has good gas mileage, and is cute too! The one and only thing I dont like is that somehow the way the gas tank is designed, causes the gas pump to kick off when fueling up. So, you have to manually fuel up at times.
