After one year and 18,000 miles...
By Rob on
2008 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
... my Scion xB is still living up to my expectations with zero problems and gas mileage consistently over 30mpg. With 69.9 cubic feet of storage with the rear seats folded (more than a Jeep Grand Cherokee at 67.4 cu.ft.) The xB can carry a lot of stuff if needed. Bottom line is that the Scion xB is a great value, reliable, efficient. Negatives are few at this price point. Ride can be a bit intrusive on bad roads but still solid. Interior plastic scratches easily... that's about it really. I am always looking for a replacement for the car that I currently drive. Just to see if there is something that would work better for the price. I haven't found it yet.
Camry engine, 5 speed transmission, full air bag array, 4 wheel disc brakes, traction control, stability control, reliability, cargo room, gas mileage.
Higher quality interior plastics, improve ride, increase ground clearance slightly, more color choices. standard alloy wheels.
