2005 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The roof is a little high for loading kayaks. The snow collects heavily and gets quite packed in the wheel wells causing the front tires to loose their turning mobility. On both rear wheels the packed snow had to be broken up with the windshield ice scraper. The wiring to the side lights is located in the wheel wells and it pulled away and is now broken and hang down. The garage said the whole unit would have to be replaced. I've never had this happen before. Other than that I really love this car.

Favorite Features

Great mileage average 34 mpg. Wonderful space with seats down for 8' lumber and ladders. Tremendous leg and headroom.

Suggested Improvements

The plastic bumpers are very low and get caught on curbs and break easily. The wind noise is loud on the highway.
