2005 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car to be a commuter car, driving 60 miles round trip is never fun! The mileage is great, and the car handles a bit better than expected for an econo-car. They probably could have put a little more paint on the car than they did but overall, it has held up well with the abuse of commuting. All options are "a la cart" so if you decide later that you want to add something, the dealer or you can do it, no problem. I got mine with some dealer goodies, then added some personal touches myself. I was even able to add a tow plate so I can tow the car with an RV and it only took 2 hours.

Best Features

I like that all Scions come with the big three options (air, power windows, power locks) standard from the factory.

Worst Features

Better paint quality, and cruise control. Basic Scions have all the power goodies, cruise should be added even if it bumps the price.
