2005 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had my Scion xA for 1 year now and have loved every minute of it! In minnesota, it even started when it was -30 degrees! Granted, it sounded a little funny but let it run a few minutes, then she was off!


Best Features

Looks, reliability, light up storage box!!


Worst Features

I changed from the factory Pioneer stereo to a Sony that has an iPod connection. Sun roof options? Whats up with the bad gas milage? 28mpg is what i typically get.

2005 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My wife and I bought this on our honeymoon, and it has turned into our second best wed gift(second to a quilt)! We love our car.....needless to say, it has been EVERYWHERE with us!!! (or rather we with it) Held hostage by the miraculous powers of the all new, all amazing 2005 scion XA!!! On a more serious note, this has been a great little car for us. Over 100000 miles, and nothing but plugs and oil change. We have often gotten around 40 mpg and have made MANY 1500 mile trips in it, and find it very comfy. The ONLY things I could complain about, is road noise at high speeds, no input jack on stereo, one annoying blind spot, and.....I guess that's it! Great car! We HIGHLY recommend!


Best Features

EVERYTHING! Love the fold down rear seat, and the cargo cap. MPG, style, awesome stereo ETC ETC


Worst Features

Road noise, input jack, and blind spot on driver side. Otherwise perfect!

2005 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I drive this car 70 miles round trip three times a week commuting to work. She has also taken me and one or two passengers on trips of up to 1000 miles a time or two. I average 36 MPG, but occasionally get over 40. There is nothing to dislike about "Jolene" She gets all scheduled maintenance and I have had absolutely no problems with her. She's on the original battery and still starts right up unless I forget the headlights. Even then a jump and 5 minutes run time is enough to "rejuice" her. She's small, so changing a flat is almost easy. Her pick up is sufficient and she has absolutely NO problems holding her own on the highway with the big boys. She does not act like a little car.


Best Features

Fuel economy and reliability. Cargo flexibility. Surprisingly non-painful on long trips. Great sound.


Worst Features

Cruise control (Jolene sometimes gets into her head that the speed limit is more of a recommendation.) Road noise can be annoying at warp speed.

Review

Found this car when I was getting my Thunderbirds A/C fixed. It really stood out and called to me! I'm a total VW Bug Girl! They spoiled me with their compactness and excellent gas mileage. So to my surprise I found the XA to be all the things I loved about Bugs, with extra perks. A/C, 4 Doors, Great on gas, way nicer looking than my old 76:P Great Family Car too! My daughter loves it!! I also always have room for one more:D


Best Features

Fold down back seats for hauling around amps and guitars, 4 doors to get my little one in and out easily, Hatch back for simplifying grocery shopping trips, The way everything is in the center of the dash, and how you can see to the ground in front of you as if there is no motor. In short everything


Worst Features

There are a few annoying blind spots. That is really my only complaint.
