Scions conquer America
By jerryfan on
2004 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
As a long-time Toyota owner, I jumped at
the Scion, an off-shoot of Toyota. I
first had seen the Scion's xB back in
2003, a bit boxy, but cool. Great price
and fuel efficiency.
When it came time to buy, I opted for
the aX, the bX seemed a bit pimped-out
for a 47-year-old. The cX was a bit
pricey for my wallet. I'm happy with the
xA. Put 3000 miles on it in the first 21
days...The only luxury I demanded with
it was dealer addition of cruise
control. Five-speed is sweet. A great
little car for the 21st century.
The price tag was good, just over
$14,000 with the cruise, the ride's
good, it turns heads and is great so far
in my book.
The whole car, it's designed sensibly,
efficiently and has a smart look. A car,
after all, should reflect on it's owner.
