After trying out over 20 different vehicles my husband asked me to look at a Scion XB. With our 1st visit to the 1st dealer we were sunk and it became only a matter of time before we would buy one. Then the day came that we were shown the new 2009 color, Stingray and that was it. Next day we bought it. We love the handling of the car, the roominess inside, and the sound system is terrific. The seats are quite comfortable for us. We've tinted the windows even darker, added custom chrome rims, and it's added to the overall look. For the price we feel we've gotten a wonderful vehicle that is fun to drive and meets all our requirements. We are averaging 26 mpg on city streets, not bad!
The style and look of the car.
Needs to be Blue Tooth ready, it needs armrests for all four arms in the front seat, and the placement of the controls for cruise control should be on the steering wheel or placed higher then where they currently are. Awkwardly placed now.
