2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
After owning various small cars: - '56 VW bus - Ducati 160 - 1956 Chevy Carryall (stovebolt 6 - $25 very used) - Fiat 1100 R - 2nd car best, Dunlop's, non-syncro 1st led to next car (ex could not figure out 1st) - Toyota Corolla (2TC hemi 1600) only lasted 439,000 miles! - Plymouth Champ (8 speed 1600) - '74 Bug - '85 RX-7 (oh well - sports car days) - '91 Geo Metro - 56 mpg until vacuum lines died - Now driving '04 scion Xa (154,000 miles so far) Wonderful, the best of the lot as to handling, seating, view out (although rear blind spots.) Optioned w/ rear anti-sway bar, front tower brace, handles like a go-cart, twice the power compared to the Metro
Favorite Features
1) Speedo pod placement allows installation of 100 watt 11 band amateur radio tranceiver (call Europe direct ...) 2) Nimble, great handling 3) Love the 4500 rpm power band 4) Factory cruise control (required in Florida) 5) Style 6) Looks great with my hand-built mahogany kayak on trailer behind
Suggested Improvements
1) Higher 5th gear, 3800 rpm @ speed limit 2) A/C a little weak for S. Florida 3) Rear bearing failure @ 100-120 K ($350 / wheel to repair) 4) How about better color selections ...
