I bought my xB because I needed something 'family' sized and though I wasn't too keen on it's looks, I had heard great reviews from a friend who has an earlier model. Overall, I think it's a great value, good fuel economy, great handling, lots of interior space, and the guaranteed reliability of a Toyota (of course). I think it's a great vehicle for someone with a small family or someone who wants a different kind of small suv/wagon.
