2004 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


I've had the car for a little over a
week (500 miles) and really like it. It
has more get up and go on the freeway
than I had expected (though one can only
expect so much out of a 1.5L engine) and
freeway driving hasn't been a problem,
even with 2 passengers in the car. I've
taken out the rear headrests because
they block some of the view, plan to
replace them with 2 more center
headrests (only an inch or so tall when
lowered). Parallel parking has been a
breeze, though I'm still getting used to
how CLOSE the back end of the car is -
my last car wasn't this small! The
brakes do seem to squeak a little, I'm
not sure if that's the cold this week,
or if it will be an ongoing issue.

Best Features

Grocery bag hooks, fuel economy, ABS, air conditioning, styling.

Worst Features

Armrest, cruise control, shorter rear headrests, higher cup holders (I'm short and really have to reach), pockets behind the driver and passenger seats for things like umbrellas.
