I was shopping for a commuter car and
was considering a Civic or Corrola and
then I spotted an Xa. This interesting
little car grabbed my attention
immediately with its "love it"
or "hate it" styling and I love it.
Who would of thought you could build a
reliable car with a certain cool
factor for under $13,000. Well, I
drove all 3 which had comparable
drives but there was something that I
admired about the Scion. Maybe it was
how it stood out in a crowd of bland
economy cars. Or perhaps, it was the
build quality of a Toyota coupled with
the 5 year 60k powertrain warranty
(which will probably never be used)for
the price of a Kia. I'm sold.
Styling, build quality, fuel mileage,
Cruise control and an available
sunroof would be nice options. A
center console would be appreciated
and it would be helpful if the
sunvisors were longer so they would
block the sun above the rear view
mirror. Also, isn't it about time
floor mats came as standard equipment.
