Currently, my xB is totally caked in dirt from this past weekend. The windshield has dings and a crack almost as wide as the glass itself, collected over 5 years. A couple of dash lights are fading. I put wider tires on the OEM spoke rims and am having trouble getting the front two balanced correctly. All that said, when it's cleaned and shining, the Camo Green Box is beautiful and I really have no complaints at all. I have no problem without center armrest. My prev car, a Saab 9.3 didn't have one as they want you driving with both hands on the wheel as a safety feature. BTW, this bought-new xB replaced a run of two Saabs that I loved.
Fun driving. Surprising people off the line. Tight turning. Fit and finish. Reliability. Completely trouble-free at 88K. Interior room (I'm 6'5" and very comfortable driving.) Stereo performance. Cold-air intake and upgraded exhaust. The overall design inside and out.
