We purchased our XB last week and are extremely happy with the vehicle! We purchased this car after comparing it against other compact cars on the market, and it totally fits our needs. We wanted a compact car that would not crush our kids in the back seat, an engine that was a 2.4L, good fuel economy, and something that could hold luggage in the truck. No other compact car fit our criteria except this one. Weve put 800 miles on the car so far and have averaged 26.2 miles per tank of gas. If youre in the market for a 2010, ask the dealer to bring in a 2011, because youll love the changes. We were sold on the 2010, but when we when saw the change. Great car for the money!!!!!
We love the arm rest, huge improvement! An additional gauge allows you to see the temp and clock, another great addition. We also think that the clutch on the 2011 is tighter, the car shifts a lot smoother then the 2008, and 2010 models we test drove. We love how each door has a water bottle holder.
The seats are still lacking some comfort.It would also be nice if the door locks and window controls would have back lighting. You have to feel for them when you're driving at night.
