I had a 2005 Scion XB and loved it but it was a little slower than I liked. So I traded it in for the 2008 Scion with the new body style. Love the car. She has enough power to get out of the way of fast approaching vehicles that don't want to let you merge into traffic.
There are more lights in this Scion. Love the two overhead lights the best and the light in the rear of the car.
I do miss the side back windows. I have a blind spot on the right passenger side of the car and its difficult to see. I have to really look carefully before making lane changes. They need to put those back side windows on the car and make the back window wiper longer.
