Michigan to Alaska

2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
We bought this car brand new, it now has 93,000 miles on it. At 62,000 miles the right rear wheel bearing had to be replaced but the dealer did that for free even though it wasn't under warranty anymore he said it shouldn't have happened on a Toyota, and at 78,000 miles I replaced the front brake pads. Other than that we've just done routine maintenance (spark plugs, oil, filters, belts) We bought this in Michigan and now live in Alaska and it does fine in the winter with studded tires. We drove through the mountains from Anchorage to Valdez and got 43 mpg on the highway. We get about 21-25mpg in the city. This car is really a great car, take care of it and it won't let you down.
Body lines are kind of quirky and make people look twice. And I love the mileage and the iPod hookup.
