2008 Scion xB: These Doors Don't Slam
October 16, 2008
Something that isn't a big deal to most but that I'm not too keen on on our 2008 Scion xB: the doors sound tinny when slammed shut. You don't get that reassuring solid thunk but one that echos and seems to reverberate the car's frame. I have a Corolla and have been in other Toyotas and Scions before, but this is the first time I've noticed this characteristic. I can't chalk this up to the xB being an economy car as other econocars I've tried before don't sound/feel this cheap. In any case, it makes me wonder what exactly causes it to be like that.
But really, there's nothing like a good door-slamming car.
