I have never regretted buying my 2004 xA and look forward to trading for a new one. I moved down from an SUV to a sub-compact and I drove them all. The xA was the only one that surpassed my expectations for its ride and drive. I never care what gas costs. It has had no problems and it's finally ready for new tires at just over 41,000 miles. I don't miss my SUV as the xA has plenty of cargo space. It is a great value for the money.
The Scion xA is an excellent value for the money. Its sound system is excellent, its ride and drive are much better than I expected, and I'm used to having the speedometer etc. in the middle of the dash. I'm happy with them there!
I'm happy with my car, the value and what I got for my money. Maybe brighter interior lighting would help me view my mileage information, but that's about it.
