just totalled mine on hwy 5. driving
the speed limit, averted another
driver's sudden brake slam, lost
control and eventually flipped. pulled
myself and my 90 lb dog through the
passenger window. he's fine. i walked
away with only a bruise on my knee.
airbags didn't deploy but the car
crushed around us like a cocoon, upside
down. not even considering another car.
soon as i can, it's right back to the
scion dealer. though i really do wish
the car had u.s crash ratings/tests
simple. streamlined. utilitarian. "mini-
cooper on steroids..." it makes me
laugh and it's fun to drive.
Car is fun to drive, great gas mileage
and fun to drive. Price is excellent
for a Toyota Sister Co. Car looks
small but the inside actually has good
space. Trunk is small. I usually leave
the back seats down for the extra
room. Seats in the back limit
visiablity out the rear. Overall a
very good car.
Power everything, great gas mileage.
Surprising power for 100 hp. Looks
great. Good Pricing with no haggle.
Needs Cruise control, center arm rest,
front cup holder needs to be closer
too far away.
WITH IN A WEEK OF HAVING THE CAR,
i HAD TO HAVE A NEW MOTOR MOUNT, WHICH
DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM. TOOK IT BACK
AND THE TECH PEOPLE DECIDED IT NEED A
LUBE JOB ON THE FRONT SPENDLE, WHICH MAY
ONLY PROLONG A CONTINUING PROBLEM, NOW
AFTER HAVING THAT DONE, THE ALINMENT IS
OFF AND I WILL HAVE THE TAKE IT BACK A
THIRD TIME.THE XA DOSEN'T SEEM AS
REFINE AS A NORMAL TOYOTA, BUT FOR THE
PRICE IT'S STILL BETTER THEN MOST
SOUND SYSTEM IS GOOD, THE RIDE AND
TURNING IS REALY GOOD, AND THE GAS
PERFORMANCE IS CLOSE TO WHAT THE
STICKER SAYED IT WOULD GET
A SOFT ARM REST WOULD BE NICE, AND A
LITTLE MORE HORSE POWER WOULD MAKE
EASYER TO GO UP A MOUNTAIN PASS WITHOUT
DOWN SHIFTING ALL THE TIME.
