I loved this beast! Great performance, great handling, great ergonomics. I hauled my wife, two kids and a pop-up trailer all over. This is a great small- family. We sadly had to part ways as there is a third child coming soon, but if Scion would have built a stretched version (ala the Mazda5 we just traded for) we would have stayed in the Scion stable for a third run.
Goes anywhere, parks anywhere, a blast to drive, AWESOME gas mileage. We averaged 30 in mostly city drivings and 22 pulling a fully loaded camper and gear.
Make a stretched version with a 3rd row. A hybrid would be awesome too.
