2004 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


After driving the same car for 14
years, we needed something new. The
sporty xA (as opposed to the hideous,
boxy xB) was just what we were looking
for. Power steering, brakes, windows,
and door locks, anti-lock brakes,
driver and passenger airbags, awesome
fuel economy (we average about 30mpg),
CD player/six-speaker stereo system
and comfortably seats five - all
standard! These features alone blew us
away. Our son is 6'4" and sits
comfortably in the back seat. We've
comfortably fit 5 adults at once. The
only upgrades we purchased were fog
lights and the six-disc CD changer,
and it still cost us under $14,000.
The Toyota engineering was also a
major selling point. Highly

Best Features

The clean, uncluttered dash is great. The fuel efficiency is fantastic. But the tiny size is probably the best feature - we can park the xA anywhere, and it zips in and out of traffic with the greatest of ease.

Worst Features

Cruise control would have been nice, and an auto-up feature on the driver's window (to compliment the auto-down) would have been nice, but this vehicle, for its class, is truly hard to improve upon.
