2004 Scion xA Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

design, its definatly different


Worst Features

the gas tank issue

Review

As far as reactions from people, I get
about 50/50 - Half of the people
saying "aww, how cute" and the other
half think the xA is ugly. But I'm
proud of my little xA, I think it's
cute, fits into parking places easily,
good on gas, and has nice features (the
interior lighting, etc) I have fun
driving it knowing that their aren't
many on the road yet, and when I do see
fellow scion owners, they usually wave
at me =) It's a great car so far, and
I've had no problems with it yet.
Suprisingly, Having the speedometer and
everything all in the middle is
convenient. I love mine, and after
having it 4 months, I can't imagine
driving anything else :)


Best Features

Under-dash interior lighting, mp3 player


Worst Features

Maybe the head rests in the back could be lower, because it's hard for a short person to see out the back window, but other than that I can't think of anything else. :)

Review

I've had the car for a little over a
week (500 miles) and really like it. It
has more get up and go on the freeway
than I had expected (though one can only
expect so much out of a 1.5L engine) and
freeway driving hasn't been a problem,
even with 2 passengers in the car. I've
taken out the rear headrests because
they block some of the view, plan to
replace them with 2 more center
headrests (only an inch or so tall when
lowered). Parallel parking has been a
breeze, though I'm still getting used to
how CLOSE the back end of the car is -
my last car wasn't this small! The
brakes do seem to squeak a little, I'm
not sure if that's the cold this week,
or if it will be an ongoing issue.


Best Features

Grocery bag hooks, fuel economy, ABS, air conditioning, styling.


Worst Features

Armrest, cruise control, shorter rear headrests, higher cup holders (I'm short and really have to reach), pockets behind the driver and passenger seats for things like umbrellas.
