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


I was passing by the local Toyota
dealer by my house and to my surprise
I saw a Scion in front. This is a
surprise because I live in Illinois
and Scions are not being sold here
yet. I test drove it and it is very
unique (now at least); I was being
stared at by the drivers of the tuned
Hondas. This car definitely has style.
I like the center-mounted speedometer;
it has plenty of space in the back for
three of my friends (no tall people
welcome). I think this would be great
as a first car for someone who wants
style but is willing to sacrifice

Best Features

Center-mounted speedometer, six disc in-dash cd player. Definitely draws attention. I have to say that the interior is pretty stylish while still being functional; definitely not economy car-looking.

Worst Features

When idling, car "jumps." Severe lack of power Don't expect to go fast. I hate the volume control-use the round knob. Car dealers (at least the one I went to in IL) stop overpricing used Scions. $3000 above new MSRP is not acceptable.
