I Liked It Until the Winter

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


I purchased this car because my Eclipse decided to break permanently. I wanted a car that was different and got good gas mileage. It fit the bill. It's surprisingly agile and has a great stereo. I truly loved the car until I drove home from work during a small snow storm. I almost ended up sliding over a cliff. This car is terrible in the snow and rain. It is the only car I've ever felt uncomfortable driving in bad weather. Also, the trim in the interior is always making an annoying vibration sound. I'm going to trade it in after I get a good down payment for a Subaru WRX.

Best Features

The good gas mileage, reliability, how it keeps a lot of it's trade in value for a vehicle in its class.

Worst Features

Add traction control, better build quality for the interior, and arm rest.
