I am doing this review for my sons car. 2012 my son bought a 2006 Scion xb. It had extremely low miles on it when he bought it. Being a newby buyer he didn't want my help, lol. Last yr he decided to try and sell it and odometer read 92K miles on it (9 yrs old at the time). Someone loved it and ran a carfax on it. To his dismay it said that it had around 350K on it at the time he bought it, which leads to the fact that someone turned the odometer. Anyway - He has owned it 4 yrs and still owns it. He has never had to put any work into it other than the normal maintenance. This car currently is 10 yrs old and has over 400K miles on it and just keeps on ticking. I am just amazed what a phenomenal little car this is despite the mileage issues. I just had to rave on my sons behalf!!! OH! There is one thing that was bad with the car and that was the back latch which I guess is a history on this car breaks. We had it fixed and just an amazing car. I will describe my son in the "Describe Yourself" below part.
Bought the car new on 06. Ten years later, and 186,000 miles it is still going strong. We've made the NY to FLA trip 6 times, ski and never a problem. No major repairs ever- only scheduled maintenance and oil changes. Simply put- the best car we've ever owned.
I had my 2006 Scion xB for seven years. Bought it at 63K miles and crashed it at 228K miles. Totaled on a deer going 70 down the interstate and both me and my boyfriend didn't have a scratch! I never had a problem out of mine besides some basic motor part replacement and I had to replace the A/C pulley once. My dad is a mechanic and said it's super easy to work on and maneuver around the engine. Maintenance and repairs were cheap at other mechanics too, not just my dad. This is by far the best car I could have had and I'll be going to pick up my new '06 Scion xB tomorrow. This car rocks!
I still love my 2006 Scion xB. It is about to turn 9 years old in a couple of months. I drive it a lot and it still gets about 30 mpg city and 34 highway. I am going to get it painted and hopefully keep it another 9 years. It is very roomy and I use it for my small business. I can't find another one with this much cargo space and I definitely don't want a car payment ever again.
Ride, comfortable seats. Decent stereo and or conditioner still works!
None, they tried to improve it nod got a worse product in my opinion
