2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This car is fine. I got used to the center pod dashboard quickly. The ONLY thing I could wish for, would be a 6th gear. At 80 mph, with a 5-speed manual, the engine is turning 4,000 RPM. That's fine, it has a 7,000 RPM redline, but there's no need to spin it so fast. There is no need to downshift on the highway. I drive in commuter traffic, 75-80 mph. In mixed driving, I get around 35 mpg.
Favorite Features
The 5-speed shifts nicely and the package handles nicely. The brakes are fine without antilock.
Suggested Improvements
Give it a 6-speed manual, or taller gearing (reduce engine RPM in top gear), for better gas mileage.
