I bought the Scion because I was impressed with the standard features that came on it and the interior roominess. I am over 6 feet tall and about 300 lbs, and am comfortable in the front or back seats. Car is quick and nimble to drive, but a lot of road feel. Could get better, mileage, only about 28 ave. Most disappointed after driving less than 1,000 miles (less than 2 weeks) the check engine light came on. Took it to a dealer who "fixed" it and 4 days later had the same problem. Now they are replacing the transmission. Sure, it's under warranty, but that does nothing for my time, lost work, and aggravation. Sadly disappointed at Toyota quality. Is in the shop more than my driveway.
MP3 and Ipod docking, headrests, interior room, easy fold down seats, good cargo room with seats down. Good pick-up for highway merge. Great headroom - most I've ever had! Like the pump up/down seat too.
BETTER TRANSMISSION QUALITY! Upgrade to 5-spd auto for mpg, cargo light, beef up cargo floor (it's pretty flimsy), telescoping steering. Improve instruments to show odometer & trip and put clock separate from other data. Variable wipers, cruise on wheel, bigger cup holders, and more power outlets
