Review

I bought a XB in the cherry pearl i love this car, it is fun and great on gas. Alot of people have asked about it, alot have stared. It is a car either you love or hate. I love mine!! Live in MA just took it on a road trip to the White Mountains in NH it did great very impressed, smooth ride the entire drive. No complaints. Thanks to Bernardi Toyota for getting me my XB so quickly, you'll be seeing more of me in the future. Thanks again to everyone who was involved in getting me my XB. I LOVE THIS CAR!


Favorite Features

The stereo, love that i can have it on "hear" and feel like I am at a concert. The head & leg room Great Job!


Suggested Improvements

Review

Got my xB in June of 2003. After 500 miles, had 3 annoying rattles coming from dash, rear seat latch and driver seatbelt anchor. Seats are comfy. Lots of storage space when seats folded down. I moved from San Diego to Seattle in this! Stability and traction control work well in the snow! Gas milage is not what was promised, but still good. I now have 22,000 miles on it.


Favorite Features

Funky style, stability control and traction control standard! Price!


Suggested Improvements

Stereo still could use some work. Dash rattles. Improved rear window washer/wiper. A 6th gear!! Driving at like 4,500 rpm's on the highway gets old.

Can't wait to get my Scion. Ordered last weekend after a test drive. I know lots of people hate the look, but every time I see it it makes me smile.


Favorite Features

My wife let me get the blue interior lights if I let her get the basement finished.


Suggested Improvements

Would like to have the option of a few more horses.

Review

The car looks cool and is small but big inside. It looks big when its the only car around and it has a great feeling to drive


Favorite Features

the standards such as air conditioning and cd player. It also has lights that can be turned on and off


Suggested Improvements

stiffer suspension (this can be solved with the purchase of the front strut bar) The mirror in the sun visor is awkwardly placed

Review

WOW - I own one of the Hot Lava Models and I must say that this probably has been the best purchase I ever made. We are a family of 4 and we have more than enough room inside, comes standard with many great features, we have driven it and enjoy the ride, gas mileage is amazing ..... Take one for a drive and you will see why this is going to be a Cool Little Ride .......


Favorite Features

The looks without a doubt. Enjoy the leg room and spacious feeling you get while inside the box. Also enjoy having the 4-doors !


Suggested Improvements

It would be nice to see an armrest between the front seats and also a rear cargo light. The front cupholders need resized, a little larger then the standard cup.
