2008 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We have been driving this xB for about 20,000 miles for two years, and disappointing since about 10,000 miles. Besides a major problem with engine (the dealershop fixed it), it rattles with the breake pushed, and plastic fell apart from under the passenger chair. This is not the Toyota quality we used to know. Although it has a unique design and some functionality, the overal quality is below my expectation considering the price tag.


Best Features

The exterior look, roommy inside, cargo space with flat seats


Worst Features

wow.. what can I say about this scion? Toyota is not doing something right and the deficiency will be reflected in the market share near soon.

2008 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my 08 xb just over 2 years and have approx 75,000 miles on it. Not one issue ever. Plenty of power, and my avg mpg on the dash currently says 29.8 I drive alot of highway at roughly 73mph, when I was driving at around 68mph on these trips I would get around 31mpg. I love this car, holds all my stuff for camping, and a large dog. only complaint...that stupid skinny arm rest. fatten that thing up!!

2008 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It has been a great car for the price and I wanted something good on gas and the interior size was a big surprise.I will be selling mine soon as I want to go back to AWD and something with more of a luxury feel.


Best Features

Ipod compatible and gas mileage, easy manual gearbox


Worst Features

Stereo Ipod control too finicky, goodyear RSA tires bad in the wet,seats could use more support, ride quality is sometimes bumpy but it could be the tires, but hey it was $16k new!

2008 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I really like the Scion. Very roomy with great interior.


Best Features

I love the MP3 hook-up


Worst Features

The brake system does not seem reliable. Having issue with brake pads not wearing evenly. This causes the car to feel like you are rubbing the rotors, even though I have 50% of the pads left. Dealership not being cooperative. This could make me fall out of love with this car.
