It's been 14 months since I bought my Scion xA and they have been rewarding months, indeed. The car still turns heads while being extremely utilitarian and reliable. I get a solid 35 mpg overall (50% freeway and 50% secondary roads) and 41 mpg on long trips on the PA Turnpike. It has lots of torque for a small engine, good comfort and a commanding view from the chair-like driver's seat.
This thing is a tank and a Toyota. I have had no problems at all! That's what I like best! Next best thing: the driving position and the supportive seats. And for a tall vehicle, the handling is almost sporty.
Cruise control should be an option. I'm adding an aftermarket unit.
