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


After driving the same car for 14 years, we needed something new. The sporty xA (as opposed to the hideous, boxy xB) was just what we were looking for. Power steering, brakes, windows, and door locks, anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger airbags, awesome fuel economy (we average about 30mpg), CD player/six-speaker stereo system and comfortably seats five - all standard! These features alone blew us away. Our son is 6'4" and sits comfortably in the back seat. We've comfortably fit 5 adults at once. The only upgrades we purchased were fog lights and the six-disc CD changer, and it still cost us under $14,000. The Toyota engineering was also a major selling point. Highly recommended.

Best Features

The clean, uncluttered dash is great. The fuel efficiency is fantastic. But the tiny size is probably the best feature - we can park the xA anywhere, and it zips in and out of traffic with the greatest of ease.

Worst Features

Cruise control would have been nice, and an auto-up feature on the driver's window (to compliment the auto-down) would have been nice, but this vehicle, for its class, is truly hard to improve upon.
