2005 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Got the car brand new in '04 and used it mostly around town with the occasional 200 mile weekend trip. Great value for the money in terms of low purchase price and low operating cost. Power is what one might expect from a 108-hp motor but the 5-spd manual trans made the driving experience a bit more interesting. A 6th gear would be perfect for speeds over 70mph. Ride quality is bouncy on the interstate because of the short wheelbase and firm suspension but it's a blast around corners and when zipping around city traffic. 5 yrs and 50K miles later, I can say it was an overall positive experience. Would I buy a Scion again? Not likely. Just traded it in for a sporty euro sedan last week.
Favorite Features
Compact size, roomy interior (for its size) with seats folded down, low maintenance cost, great gas mileage, highway patrol thinks it's funny that it can go over 88mph.
Suggested Improvements
6th gear, driver's center armrest, tuneable suspension for highway comfort, more power.
