I test drove a 2006 XB a few years ago and rejected it, too slow and noisy. This revised model is a major improvement. I'm getting the advertised 23 mpg or so around town, but on a 50 mile (mostly rural) drive to Lancaster PA it returned 33 - far above the 28 mpg sticker for hwy. It's quiet, crisp handling, and has excellent visibility and interior space. I'm sorry i didn't test drive sooner. And you can't beat the pricing.
styling, room, driving dynamics,hwy mileage (if it holds up)
you can't display time/temp/mpg separately. long reach for the ctr mirror & some other switchgear. the aero kit is going to scrape the snow in winter. not all interior gauges are lit. and base radio doesn't include sat; i rejected the $449 sat upgrade cost as insane. heated mirrors?
