Great, Fun Car for the Price
By Iowan on
2005 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
I test drove all of the current compact vehicles in 2005, and this was by far the best value, the most fun, best looking and by far the roomiest. We drive it exclusively around town with our 3 kids. We even took it on an overnight trip with the kids--had plenty of room for a large suitcase, overnight bag, small cooler and the kids' DVD players. It handles well in Iowa winters with it's traction control. We were lucky to snag one only a few months old, and it's still worth close to what we paid for it 2 1/2 years ago. Love it!
Roominess for back seat, visibility, overall funky look.
Audio controls on steering wheel, better/easier to use radio controls on radio, center arm rest, iPod jack.
