2005 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Bought this for my wife to drive 40 work roundtrip miles. Whenever possible I get to drive it for fun. Of the 40+ cars & trucks owned in the past 50+ yrs (Chevys, Fords, Subaru, Mercedes), this xB outpaces every other vehicle in all categories. It is very comfortable on long trips (I am 6' & 240 lbs) and is quick to react in heavy traffic. I can wear my cowboy hat & not hit the headliner and with the front seats back, most can sit in the back and cross their legs without hitting the backs of the front seats. More passenger room that most full-size cars. Safety and engineering features that are not even available on most cars until you hit the 40K price range. Quality? It's Toyota!
Favorite Features
Overall quality is tops as expected. Handling is superb (I am an ex-sports car racer). Center mounted gauge cluster is very safe - your eyes don't have to adjust from down to distance. Greenhouse - very safe as you can see all 4 sides. Fuel economy steady at 32 mpg overall even including hwy & town.
Suggested Improvements
Side curtain airbags (coming in 08). Center arm rest to accommodate both short and tall drivers as the seat slides. Overhead console with reading lights. DRLs. Auto door locks when engine starts.
