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

Review

I bought this vehicle to commute 100 miles each way to work. I chose it because it has good headroom for a 6'2" person. I got the automatic transmission because it seemed too cramped in the foot well for 3 pedals with my size feet. I usually get 33 or 34 mpg while going around 70 mph commuting which is not too far below the EPA estimate of 38 mpg. I was happy with that level of performance. City driving appears to be much lower mileage than advertised. The seats were only complaint I had for long distance driving as there wasn't any lumbar support available.

Best Features

I love the aftermarket AEM cold air induction system I added. It gives it a little more attitude.

Worst Features

I've never had a car's paint chip as easily as the paint on my Scion. It has too many highway and parking lot scars.
