Toaster Doesn't Waffle

Vehicle2004 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI first noticed on a business trip to Japan last year
that many of the car were boxy looking "mini-vans"
but they looked cool. I immediately upon seeing
the xB here took one for a test drive and was very
impressed that my 6'1" frame could fit comfortably
in the back seat with the front seats positioned all
the way back without touching my knees. The
cargo space is very adequate for 90% of what I need
to carry. Although the stock configuration is under
powered, I have managed to make it acceptable by
adding the optional Cold Air Intake. This is a
mandatory option in my opinion. I have also added
exhaust headers and a larger muffler to gain power.
with no hit on gas MPG.
Best FeaturesPower windows, powered and heated mirrors, and 33-35MPG driving at real world interstate highway speeds! Easy to find parking. Can haul 27" TV home in the box!
Worst FeaturesClearly the best thing would be the option for a more powerful engine! The xB shares the same engine as the Toyota Echo while the xB clearly weighs several hundred pounds more.
