Just totaled my XB (04/19/08) with a head-on crash with a Dodge Dakota P-up (airbags deployed). The drivers area was in perfect shape. The front end was crushed to the base of the windshield. Crumple zones worked as advertised. I walked away as did my 4 year old son who was strapped in his child seat in the back passenger side. I'm back in the market to buy another one(2004-2006). 2008 XB's look like they were designed by the Michelin Man...Yuck!
Survivability! 32 MPG on the highway/30MPH around town. Large back seat. Great brakes even though the rears are drums.
Factory cruise control(I had dealer installed/after market). Rear cargo dome light. Side airbags(on 2008 models)
