When I was shopping far my first car in 2008, I had relied a lot on edmunds.com reviews. I was fortunate enough to see a scion xA for sale near me and immediately looked into it. I've been meaning to put my 2 cents on here about this car: I LOVE IT. If you are on the fence about going with a scion xA, hop the fence, and go get that car. It's extremely efficient, fits everywhere, fun to drive, impressively roomy for such a small design, and just a really great vehicle. I'm so glad I went with it, great first car, looking forward to keeping it that way for many years to come. I've had it for four years and I'm still always happy to see it in front of my house!
