I've owned my XB since August. I'm very pleased with it. Mileage is OK, I avg. about 27 mpg overall. Surprisingly quiet with a decent ride for it's size. It also has alot of zip and cruises fully loaded at freeway speeds with no problem. I'm a good sized guy and there is plenty of room, and it is very easy to get in and out of both front and back seats. Tons of head room.
Lots of room. Traction and stability control, Anti lock brakes, Lots of safty features
