Not great but a good compromise

2009 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
I just finished reading a review about the Soul,Cube, and the XB. Scion is head over shoulders over the competition. I love the comfort, unlike Honda’s board covered up with fabric, when you sit on a Scion you feel like you’re on your lazyboy at home not as though you’re in some Chinese torture camp bench. Safety was a must for me, side curtain airbags, dual airbags, ABS, VSC, 4 wheel disk brakes, etc. I also love how everything is included in the pricing, none of this “oh you wanted a steering wheel? Well that’s extra” crap. This thing is loaded. Gas mileage. The 4 speed automatic transmission has got to go and be replaced with a 5 speed. This is key for MPG. As it stands now the gas mileag
e is tolerable but I wouldn’t call it good. I’m getting about 24 miles to the gallon. Also, people putting mileage figures on here don’t be lazy, do the math and don’t just put up what the trip computer tells you up here! Overall good vehicle, I have 2 teenagers and they fit well.Buy a hitchitsgreat
The driver arm rest is a joke The one backup light is retarded add another one for better visibility Fix Gas light to turn on when only 1 gallon remains and the new little red light Ford has for the blind spot would be awesome as there is a blind spot on the XB. Be the original and not the copy.
